The Houston Texans showed Ed Reed some southern hospitality last week during his visit to the city, but the two parties went their separate ways without a deal. The Texans showed Reed hospitality, but didn’t show him the money.  The Houston Chronicle is reporting that the Texans offered Reed a three-year $12 million deal, and that’s not good enough for Reed.  The two sides are reported to be far apart. the two sides are “not close” Texans general manager Rick Smith and Reed’s agent David Dunn have spoken since they arrived at the NFL meetings this week, but they don’t appear close to working out a deal, at least not today. Dunn is checking with other clubs to see how much interest they have. The Texans have made an offer that, according to two people familiar with the negotiations, is closer to $4 million a year than $5 million. Reed has been hoping to get a multiyear contract that averages $6 million to $7 million. Reed, who’ll be 35 next season, has an offer to return to the Ravens, who, like the Texans, don’t have a lot of room under the salary cap and won’t commit to a long-term deal. Several reports suggest that the 49ers and Patriots would now like Reed to pay them a visit.
