I don't think anyone is expecting him to be who he was. We signed the guy he is.


FYI, for all you Texans fans, here's a video from CSN Baltimore for their side of the story. I found it interesting what they said about the Texans

He plays hurt.

It seems like he's always hurt. I'm sure that leads to sub-par play.

Another thing to consider, is if he has accepted the "fact" that this is his last deal, he may not play hurt from now on. He may go into "protect my body for life after football" mode for all we know.

As for the contract (16 million over 3 years), I hope it doesn't mess up sigining Cush next year or Watt the year after. Anyone know if these figures are right and how much is guaranteed?
Lets see how the contract is set up before before singing Ricks praises.

Hopefully it's not a Schaub type contract. Where the bonus $$$$ is spread out = over the life of the contract.

Doubtful, I think he gets most of the money his 1st year since we have to resign Cush and Watt

Default Re: Ed Reed agrees to terms with Texans

I don't get why some people are freaked out over the price.

Weren't we all hoping he'd be around 5.5 mil a year? For a 3 year deal, that works out to 16.5 million... which is less than what we're hearing. And at this point, we don't know how much of that is guaranteed and how the cap hit is distributed.

Although that's longer than I think Reed can be effective, players rarely see the ends of these kinds of deals.

Although Reed wasn't my first choice, I'm OK with what I'm hearing so far and I hope Reed proves me wrong about how much he's got in the tank. I'm cheering for him now.

Reed has started every game the past two seasons. Andre Johnson has missed more games the past two years, so I guess A.J. will be in a backbrace when the Texans go to the Super Bowl?

Excited about the leadership that he can bring. If he can help cultivate leadership with guys like Cushing & Watt, I'd like to see how it goes.

No question that he's lost a step or two, but building a cohesive unit on defense is so much more important for us at this stage of our franchise.

I was against signing him but I will say that his personality and leadership is exactly what this team needs. One look at those HS letter jackets and Reed would have put a stop to that nonsense.

I hope this is more like when Drexler came to Houston to play with Olajuwon and not like when Scottie Pippen came to Houston to play with Barkley.

Default Re: Ed Reed agrees to terms with Texans

ESPN keeps reporting it's a 2-year deal, not a 3-year deal. FWIW.

Also, and this is something nobody else has mentioned:

In terms of what fans think of this move....let's look at it from another perspective for a second. If you're the QB of the Jaguars or the Titans, even Andrew "God" Luck himself, or really any of the other QBs we'll face in 2013, upon learning today that the Texans have Ed Reed at Safety rather than Glover Quin, do you think those coaches, those o-coordinators, and the QBs of those teams we'll face in 2013 were saying "Alright! AWESOME! Whew, great news for us!" or were they saying "Well, we're going to have to work a lot harder at diagnosing coverages now."

Which reaction do you think would be the more likely reaction by our opponents? I happen to think the opponents, especially our divisional rivals, are not as skeptical of this signing as some of us might be.

Fans are not calculating the inherent psychological factor involved here. And look, if Ed Reed gets torched Faggins style in 2013, right out of the gate, then the mystique is gone and we'll be toast. BUT...if Wade and his healthy defense can start the season with radical back-to-form domination, with Ed Reed making coverage plays on defense, then I think it will provide a psychological boost to us and a psychological anxiety attack for opposing teams the rest of the way.

Not saying this is Best Move Ever! or anything, just putting it into a different perspective. I think our divisional rival QBs did not want us signing Ed Reed. Glover Quin? Meh, no big deal...but Ed? Ed is Ed. And whether it stays typical Ed or not, that remains to be seen.
