The Houston Texans on day two of free agency lost another starter, but started the process of looking for some help of their own. Pretty interesting news is starting to leak out about the Texans.
Day 2 notes
- The big new of the day is veteran free safety Ed Reed will be visiting Reliant on Thursday. This comes a surprise with so little talk coming out of Houston the past couple days this comes as breath fresh air for an anxious fan base.
- The Texans lost out to the Detroit Lions in the bidding war for free agent Glover Quin. Quin reached a 5 year deal with Lions which put the Texans in a hole with their safety depth. Interesting news came out about the Texans contract offers with Quin and his agent.
Wow, Glover Quin’s agent just told me the #Texans never made an official offer for him. They talked conceptually at the combine.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Lions have reached agreement with former Texans S Glover Quin.

Ed Reed may be headed to Houston. The veteran safety was picked up by Houston Texans owner Bob McNair and other team officials prior to a meeting on Thursday.
Reed had been a large part of the Baltimore Reavens defense for a decade but with the team in salary cap trouble has become expendable.
The Texans would pair Reed with Daniel Manning who would operate as the teams strong safety...

Complaining is easy. Pointing out problems is even easier. Texans management is paid to do neither. They are tasked with finding solutions for current problems, and avoiding future issues. In that context, let’s look at their decision to let Glover Quin walk, and make a run at Edward Earl Reed, Jr.
Texans issues relative to defense and...
