UPDATE: 2:44PM – Ed Reed was officially released from the Texans

Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – The Houston Texans are preparing to release Safety Ed Reed, according to SportsRadio 610’s John McClain.

Reed was brought in in the offseason by the Texans to add some experience to a young secondary. Injuries and lack of performance on the field have been an issue for Reed all season.

He ruffled some feathers this week after the Texans 27-24 loss to the Arizona Cardinals saying that the team was “outplayed and out coached.”

On Reed’s twitter (@TwentyER) he thanked the Texans and the city of Houston.

Reed played in seven games this season, starting five of them. He recorded 16 tackles, zero sacks and had zero turnovers. He was demoted to a situational player two weeks ago.

Reed played 32 snaps in the last home game against the Colts. Shilo Keo received most of the playing time at free safety last Sunday while rookie defensive back DJ Swearinger handled duties at strong safety.

The future Hall of Famer signed with the Texans in the off-season after having surgery on an ailing hip. He missed all of the preseaosn and training camp along with the first two regular season games, the Texans only wins of the season.

NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) points out that the Texans will save a good chunk of money with the move.
