The Houston Texans have released safety Ed Reed, whom they landed in free agency not longer after the Baltimore Ravens’ Super Bowl victory.

Reed, who missed much of last season recovering from a torn Achilles, underwent arthroscopic surgery on his hip and missed the first two games of the season. His playing time diminished and, after the Texans’ loss to the Arizona Cardinals, he said they were “outplayed and outcoached.”

Reed, 35, signed a three-year, $15 million dollar deal ($2 million signing bonus and $5 million guaranteed) with the Texans.

After spending most of her career in traditional print sports journalism, Cindy began blogging and tweeting, first as NFL/Redskins editor, and, since August 2010, at The Early Lead. She also is the social media editor for Sports.
