(HOUSTON) — The Houston Texans released Ed Reed on Tuesday.
The nine-time Pro Bowl safety was in his first season with the Texans, in which he had 16 tackles in seven games. Reed missed the first two games of the year after undergoing hip surgery and recently lost his starting job.
After spending his entire 11-year career with the Baltimore Ravens, the 35-year-old Reed signed a three-year deal with Houston this past off season worth $15 million.
The Texans also placed three-time Pro Bowl running back Arian Foster on the season-ending injured reserve list on Tuesday. He suffered a back injury during the Texans first drive against Indianapolis on Nov. 3.
Foster finishes the season with 542 yards and one touchdown on 121 carries. He also had 22 receptions for 183 yards and one score.
