(NEW YORK) — Free-agent safety Ed Reed said that he will sign with the Houston Texans, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter.
The Texans offered Reed a three-year deal in the salary range of $4 million annually, according to reports. Reed has spent his entire career with the Ravens and will become the seventh Raven to exit Baltimore following their Super Bowl win in February.
The Ravens traded receiver Anquan Boldin to the San Francisco 49ers and linebacker Ray Lewis retired after winning the Super Bowl. Baltimore also lost linebackers Paul Kruger and Dannell Ellerbe to free agency, along with cornerback Cary Williams. Baltimore also released safety Bernard Pollard.
“No Reed or Ray in Baltimore????? This season is gonna be weird,” Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith tweeted on Thursday.
Reed finished with 58 tackles and a team-high four interceptions in 2012. He also added a second Super Bowl ring to his resume.
