Ed Reed left the Texans offices because of a previous engagement in another city. He and Texans will continue to negotiate.
Spin.

If a player leaves a city with no deal, it most likely wont happen.

Aaron Wilson ‏@RavensInsider
Talks between the Texans and Ed Reed are expected to continue over the weekend as he returns to Atlanta. No deal is imminent

I understand that we have very little flexibility due to previous signings. It's still worrisome though. If we have an extended period of success, if we make the playoffs 3 out of the next 4 years with an AFC championship appearance or two, then having these issues wouldn't bug me as much. But two years of success and we're up against the cap...it just makes me nervous.

Agreed. If it was that good, why waste time to come back and sign?

It's more than likely not going to happen now.

I agree. It might be time to look elsewhere before we get stuck w/ leftovers. There are too many holes being created to assume they can all be successfully filled w/ this years draft imo.

I don't mind this if it means we are playing hardball with him to a certain extent. We have other needs to fill still, so it would be nice to keep Reed's cap hit around 5 mil.

It is extremely depressing just how poorly run this organization is. They go off and basically get themselves out of cap hell that good ole Casserley brought us, and then get ourselves right back in it.

1 of 3 major franchises in this city is being run properly, yet 60% of the city can't even watch that f'ing team!!! Geez...

I don't get all of the fuss over Ed Reed ? If this had been the former Steeler now 'Phins receeiver Mike Wallace, OK I could see a fuss, but for some washed up, over the hill guy, why ? He is a legendary NFL safety, but the reality is he peaked many years ago ?

I'm fussy over this because we lost a damn good safety in Glover Quinn, an ok LB in Connor Barwin (although the money he got certainly was not worth it), and a good H-Back/TE in James Casey.

What would Ed Reed bring the Texans? Swagger. This team collapsed like no other team I have ever seen before and are sorely in need of a player with swagger. And we let that player walk out the door.

Get ready to watch the same old Texans once again this season.

So which one is it, you want us to manage our cap properly or sign Ed Reed at all costs?

Like I said before, this is looking like Nnamdi Asomugha all over again. Lets hope if so, the Texans can pull a rabbit out of the hat again... if not I think they are in deep sh!t.

And guess what? We are letting the talent we have drafted walk out the damn door!

****! We still don't even have a freaking #2 WR.

This Ed Reed deal finally made me snap. This season is setting up for failure. We found ourselves on the verge of success. Yet this team is doing what it always does; it finds a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Good job FO by letting the guy you clearly want walk out the door without signing a contract. I guess it's Shilo Keo time!

I think the fuss is over filling a need w/ at least a decent player as opposed to continue having another gaping hole & assuming it can be filled by a rookie. That could just be me though...

Both. Not signing Matt Schaub to a ridiculous deal before the season began might have been a decent start.
