Houston Texans general manager Rick Smith believes free safety Ed Reed will be ready to compete in Week 1. 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. “(Reed’s) rehab is going well,” Smith told NFL.com. “The thing that is important, and we’re focused on, is to make sure he’s there Week 1 when we start playing for real.” Serving as an ideal replacement for Glover Quin in the secondary, a healthy Reed would bolster Houston defensively and improve … Continue reading →
