Ed Reed: In Hindsight He’s (Wade Phillips) Probably The Reason I’m Not There

By JULIE TAKAHASHI, SportsRadio 610

Houston (CBS Houston)– The saga of the 2013 season continues. Now it involves players who aren’t even playing for the Texans anymore.

According to Ravens Insider Aaron Wilson’s Twitter feed and Baltimore’s 105-7 THE FAN, released Future Hall of Famer Ed Reed had a few more things about his time in Houston.

“I’m going to leave that Houston Texans talk alone,” Reed said. “Because there’s more to it than that, maybe a tell-it-all book or something.”

Reed was asked about Kubiak saying last week that he wanted to be “fair” to the veteran safety.

“In all fairness to him, like I told him, in respect to his career and what he’s done and for us to be in a situation where we’re playing him 8-10 plays and that was going to continue with the way we’re doing it right now, I thought it was fair to him to give him an opportunity to play somewhere else or do whatever he wanted to do,” Kubiak said.

Reed responded Tuesday night, “People [are] still talking about that?”

If you continue to listen you can understand exactly what he thinks of the Texans coaching staff and the culture in Houston.

“Us players take for granted being around a great system,” Reed continued. “All I can talk about is Baltimore; being around great coaches, detailed coaches.”

The interview began with Reed being asked why he doesn’t push for his number 20 jersey. Reed is wearing 22 for the New York Jets.

“20’s a Baltimore number,” Reed said. “I should have never taken it down south.”
