That's if he is here next season. People complain about his contract, but I like it. $3.2M this year. That's probably vet minimum if they stretched it out 15 years.
Only cost us $1M to cut him before next season.
So if he did what they thought he would, help us win a Super Bowl..... it cost us $3.2M. If not, we cut him & save $4M against the cap.
Yeah, but you could sign Blaine Gabbert to play FS and say that, because the chance of him helping the Texans win a Super Bowl is about the same. And those of us that never liked the signing have been screaming it from the rooftops that the reason we didn't like and still do not like the signing is because Ed Reed is D.O.N.E. It didn't take a genius, or even an NFL GM, to notice that.
OK, so I exaggerated with the Gabbert comment, but only slightly.
