Also, fwiw, McClain said the Texans had no idea about the hip surgery when hey signed him. The relationship soured after this point, and not being a Wade Phillips favorite (much less a bad fit for his defensive scheme), McClain thinks they saw the potential for Reed to sour things within the locker room.
The whole situation is just reeks of inept and really just part of a crappy season all the way around.
Yep, I said it when we signed him that it was a mistake. Like someone pointed out earlier in the thread, signing a 35-year old deep zone centerfielder to play FS in man-to-man scheme was doom from the start. Quin was a perfect fit for the system (and a good player) and we let him walk.
This whole season has reeked of FO and coaching ineptitude.
