Re: Ed Reed released
A couple things beyond the frustration of a gamble that really, really did not payoff this off-season:
1. They are getting him off the books now- instead of taking the hit next season, which is great.
2. This should also have a positive impact on the compensatory draft pick formula... Performance impacts the equation somehow. And, I'm sure being cut and only starting a couple games will lessen his value when the picks are rewarded to the Texans for the signings of: Barwin, Casey, Quin, Ball, Forsett, .
It's the best move the Texans could have made at this point... I'm glad they are willing to admit a mistake this quickly, at least- instead of keeping him around and attempting to justify it or hide it.
