Ed Reed will join the Houston Texans before mandatory minicamp starts next month


As a Miami native, Ed Reed will make a fine Texan.

Currently rehabbing in Atlanta, the Houston Texans expect free safety Ed Reed to join the team before mandatory minicamp next month and begin practicing by late July.

Roughly six weeks after helping lead the Baltimore Ravens to a 34-31 upset victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII, the 34-year-old Reed inked a three-year contract worth $15 million to become a Texan.

Unpleasantly surprising members of the Texans organization, Reed needed to undergo minor hip surgery in March to repair a small labral tear.

An eight-time All-Pro selection who was rightfully voted a member of the 2000s NFL All-Decade Team, it’s concerning that an aging Reed is trying to mend in May.

Nevertheless, Reed will recover and serve as an ideal replacement for Glover Quin in the secondary.

After going 12-4 in the AFC South, Houston went down like an intern in the Oval Office while suffering an embarrassing 41-28 loss to the New England Patriots in the divisional round of the playoffs.

A surefire Hall of Famer, Reed is a mentally and physically tough man whose presence alone should bolster the Texans defensively and prevent future postseason debacles from occurring.

Thankfully for Houston Texans supporters, Ed Reed will be healthy and ready to compete against the Chargers in San Diego on September 9.
