    Name  Ed Reed
    Born  9/11/1978
    Height  5-11
    Weight  205
    College  Miami-Florida
    11/14/2013 1:52:00 PM
    Description: Safety Ed Reed has signed with the New York Jets.
    Insight: Jets coach Rex Ryan had a previous relationship with Reed when both were in Baltimore. We're not sure how much Reed has to offer at this point, but he could certainly be a mentor for some of the Jets young defensive backs.
     
    11/13/2013 10:05:00 PM
    Description: Ed Reed went unclaimed on waivers and is now a free agent. One team that could be interested in him is the Jets. SOURCE: Rich Cimini, ESPN New York
    Insight: New England could also be a potential landing spot for the veteran. Reed's old team, the Baltimore Ravens, are not expected to make a play for him.
     
    11/12/2013 6:03:00 PM
    Description: The Texans cut ties with Ed Reed on Tuesday. SOURCE: John McClain, Houston Chronicle
    Insight: Reed managed just 16 tackles in seven games for Houston and was demoted to third safety by the end of his tenure there. Now that Reed is a free agent, a return to Baltimore could be a possibility.
     
    9/22/2013 11:32:00 AM
    Description: As expected, Texans safety Ed Reed will make his return from hip surgery Sunday against Baltimore. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
    Insight: Thirty-five of Reed's 61 career interceptions have come at M&T Bank Stadium. We're expecting a big game from him in his Texans debut.
     
    9/16/2013 9:58:00 PM
    Description: According to Brian T. Smith of the Houston Chronicle, Texans safety Ed Reed was very close to playing in Sunday's game against Tennessee. It appears that he'll make his season debut next week against his old team, the Baltimore Ravens.
    Insight: Reed's return will strengthen what is already one of the league's toughest defenses. In 16 games last season, Reed had 58 tackles to go along with four interceptions.
     
    9/15/2013 11:36:00 AM
    Description: Texans safety Ed Reed won't play Sunday against the Titans.
    Insight: Reed's recovery from offseason hip surgery is taking longer than expected. Shiloh Keo will make his second start in a row at strong safety.
     
    9/9/2013 9:22:00 PM
    Description: Houston safety Ed Reed is officially inactive for Monday's game against the Chargers.
    Insight: The former Raven is still recovering from offseason hip surgery. Shiloh Keo will make the start at strong safety.
     
    9/9/2013 11:42:00 AM
    Description: Texans newly-acquired safety Ed Reed is doubtful for Monday's game against San Diego.
    Insight: Even without Reed, Houston's defense is still one of the best in the NFL. Having Reed healthy would just be icing on the cake. That will likely have to wait a week or two.
     
    6/5/2013 9:07:00 PM
    Description: Texans safety Ed Reed admitted he might miss the start of the regular season while recovering from hip surgery. SOURCE: Houston Chronicle
    Insight: Even without Reed, Houston's defense is still one of the best in the NFL. Having Reed healthy will just be icing on the cake.
     
    3/20/2013 7:18:00 PM
    Description: Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports is reporting that former Ravens safety Ed Reed has inked a two-year contract with Houston.
    Insight: The Ravens have now lost seven starters from last season's Super Bowl-winning squad. La Canfora speculates that Reed could earn an annual salary of close to $6 million. Reed managed 58 tackles and four picks last season.
     
    1/30/2013 7:49:00 PM
    Description: The Boston Herald reports that Baltimore safety Ed Reed could "definitely" picture himself playing for New England head coach Bill Belichick.
    Insight: Reed also made headlines by admitting to having lapses in his memory as a result of multiple concussions throughout his career. Reed said earlier this offseason that he'll definitely be back for the 2013 season but he didn't necessarily mean with the Ravens. Sports Illustrated's Peter King pointed out that New England could be a good fit for Reed about a week ago so the idea of Reed playing for the Patriots didn't just come out of left field.
     
    1/27/2013 8:50:00 PM
    Description: Peter King from Sports Illustrated believes Ravens safety Ed Reed will test the open market when he becomes a free agent this offseason.
    Insight: King mentioned New England as a possible destination for the nine-time Pro Bowler. Reed will be playing in his first Super Bowl next week in Miami.
     
    1/25/2013 8:03:00 PM
    Description: When asked if he was considering retirement, Ravens safety Ed Reed responded, "I'll be playing next year. Next question."
    Insight: 2013 will be Reed's 12th season in the NFL. Reed tied for the team-lead in interceptions this season with four. Next week's game against the 49ers will mark the 34-year-old's first trip to the Super Bowl.
     
    12/27/2012 9:04:00 PM
    Description: Baltimore safety Ed Reed was fined $55,000 for a crushing hit to Giants receiver Victor Cruz in Week 16.
    Insight: Reed was suspended and fined $50,000 last month but had the suspension dropped after an appeal. He avoided suspension again but will take another huge hit to his wallet.
     
    11/20/2012 4:04:00 PM
    Description: Baltimore safety Ed Reed won his appeal and will not be suspended for Sunday's game against San Diego.
    Insight: Reed will instead pay a $50,000 fine. The league disciplined Reed earlier in the week for an illegal hit he made against Steelers receiver Emmanuel Sanders on Sunday Night Football.
     
    11/19/2012 4:16:00 PM
    Description: Ravens safety Ed Reed has been suspended for one game by the NFL for repeated safety violations according to NFL.com.
    Insight: Reed delivered a huge helmet-to-helmet hit on Steelers wideout Emmanuel Sanders Sunday night in Pittsburgh. Reed has been known for instigating these kinds of collisions over the years but apparently the league has decided that it won't tolerate this recklessness anymore. He'll miss Sunday's matchup against the Chargers.
     
    10/21/2012 10:40:00 AM
    Description: Ravens safety Ed Reed should see some action as a punt returner this week against the Texans.
    Insight: Usually Lardarius Webb handles the return duties for Baltimore but he's out for the year with a torn ACL. Reed (torn labrum) is struggling with an injury of his own, so we wouldn't expect him to be all that effective in this new role. The 34-year-old has one touchdown on 29 career punt returns.
     
    10/19/2012 9:56:00 PM
    Description: Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh doesn't seem overly concerned about the torn labrum in Ed Reed's shoulder. SOURCE: Baltimore Sun
    Insight: Harbaugh insists Reed, who has always had a reputation for toughness, will play through the injury. With Ray Lewis and Lardarius Webb already out for the year, the Ravens don't have much of a choice.
     
    9/11/2012 2:21:00 PM
    Description: Ravens safety Ed Reed is listed as probable for Sunday's game against Philadelphia. He suffered a hamstring injury in the Monday night game against the Bengals.
    Insight: Reed appeared to hurt the leg on his 34-yard interception return for a touchdown which gave the Ravens an insurmountable 34-13 lead. He didn't come back into the game, but they were safely ahead with very little time remaining. He'll be a key to keeping the Eagles passing game under control.
     
    1/9/2011 1:46:00 PM
    Description: The search for Ravens DB Ed Reed's brother, Brian, has been called off. SOURCE: BALTIMORE SUN
    Insight: Brian Reed jumped into the Mississippi River on Friday after being chased by police after allegedly stealing a car. His jacket and shoes were found, but there is belief that he wouldn't have been able to survive in the 42-degree waters. Ed broke down down in a team meeting Saturday, but he will be active against the Chiefs.
