Found March 20, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
The Houston Texans recently extended free agent safety Ed Reed a three-year contract offer, but the sides are not close to reaching an agreement, according to John McClain of The Houston Chronicle. McClain and others are reporting that the Texans’ offer to Reed was for three years and roughly $4 million per season. The veteran made over $7 million last year, and he’s reportedly seeking a similar average annual salary. However, McClain notes that Reed clearly isn’t garnering as much attention – or the corresponding contract offers – that he anticipated entering the offseason. Reed’s agent has spoken with the Texans, but he continues to gauge interest from other clubs. The Texans hosted Reed last week, and the trip went well, according to both sides. Houston is in the market for a safety after they lost their own free agent, Glover Quin, to the Detroit Lions earlier this offseason. Beyond the Texans, Reed reportedly has an offer to return to the Ravens. Others teams – including the San Francisco 49ers and New England Patriots – would like for Reed to visit, according to McClain.
