Inking a three-year contract worth $15 million to become a Texan, the 34-year-old Reed blindsided Houston and underwent minor hip surgery in March to repair a small labral tear.
Removed from an outstanding 12-4 season in the AFC South, a healthy Reed would bolster Houston’s defense and improve the squad’s overall psyche.
Unfortunately, aging and trying to mend in the summertime, the future Hall of Famer’s addition looks increasingly suspect.
An eight-time All-Pro selection who was voted a member of the 2000s NFL All-Decade Team, Reed is one of the premier defenders in league history.
Nevertheless, now graying and gimpy, don’t expect Ed Reed to launch until at least September 15 when the Tennessee Titans travel to “Space City.”by
