After winning his first Super Bowl Championship Ravens S Ed Reed got a call from former teammate and Texans WR Andre Johnson. At some point in that conversation Reed asked Johnson to get him to Houston. At the opening of free agency Texans owner Bob Mcnair sent his private jet and GM Rick Smith to bring Reed in for a visit and to negotiate contracts. After keeping everyone waiting a week or so Reed has signed a deal with the Texans. The 34 year old Reed has never played on any team but the Ravens.
