After 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.
Reportedly grimacing and struggling to backpedal, the future Hall of Famer “didn’t look comfortable doing anything other than running straight ahead” last week in camp.
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, Reed’s acquisition now looks increasingly suspect.
Nevertheless, now graying and gimpy, it’s understandable that some onlookers are “not buying” that Ed Reed will ever launch in the “Space City.”by
