New England Patriots
The Houston Texans released Ed Reed Tuesday morning after criticizing coaches stating that the Texans were both “outplayed” and “outcoached” in Sunday’s 27 – 24 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Reed only played 11 snaps during Sunday’s match-up. Prior to the season, last years AFC South champs were expected to cruise into the postseason, but the team has been plagued with season ending injuries to players like Brian Cushing who went out with a torn ACL and broken left leg after being tackled by Jamaal Charles and Arian Foster requires lumbar surgery. The Texans have also lost starting QB Matt Schaub who suffered an ankle injury. Schaub’s play was less than stellar. And don’t forget to add in HC Gary Kubiak missing this week’s game after having a mini-stroke during their Sunday night game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Reed is in his 12th season in the NFL and is being reported as healthy. But lets be honest, he pretended to be healthy when he signed with the Texans only to have hip surgery to repair a labral tear. Reed should have had surgery to repair the injury immediately after the season ended, but he surely delayed it while shopping for a new team. Reed missed all of training camp and the first 2 weeks of the season. Funny, the Texans won both of the games that Reed missed.
Reed cleared the waiver wires today and CBS Sports is reporting the both the NY Jets and New England Patriots are interested. Bill Belichick and the Patriots have taken on a few problem children since the departure of Scott Pioli. The first being Chad Ochocinco who was a bust and the other is sitting in a jail cell awaiting a murder trial. While Reed is not nearly as troubled as these two he still seems to have a bit of an attitude problem as of late. It wouldn’t surprise me to see Reed end up signing with the NY Jets to help shore up their secondary.
