The Baltimore Ravens aren't done losing veteran players just yet. Safety Ed Reed, a Raven since being drafted in the first round of the 2002 NFL Draft, is set to visit the Houston Texans on Thursday. Houston lost one of its starting safeties, rising star Glover Quin, to the Detroit Lions in free agency on Wednesday.
John McClain of the Houston Chronicle first reported Reed's scheduled visit with Houston.
The Ravens have already lost starting linebackers Dannell Ellerbe and Paul Kruger in this week's free agent signing spree. The team traded wide receiver Anquan Boldin on Monday and released popular safety Bernard Pollard on Wednesday. Veterans Ray Lewis and Matt Birk are both retiring. Reed would be another major loss to a close locker room. At 35, Reed stressed that he had no intention to retire throughout the 2012 season.
Houston has reached the AFC's Divisional Round two straight years, including 2011, when the Ravens eliminated the Texans in Baltimore.

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.
