Houston (CBS Houston) Ė Ed Reed was the Texans big-ticket acquisition this off-season. But his first eight games with the Texans havenít been worth the price of admission.

After missing the first two games due to injury, Reed has yet to register a win in a Texans uniform. The team still lists him as a starter but against the Colts it was D.J. Swearinger and Shiloh Keo who started the game at safety, neither had ever started an NFL game coming into this season. Meanwhile, Reed was used almost exclusively as the third safety in the dime package.

Reedís stats hardly read like the impact player the Texans thought they were signing. He has recorded 16 tackles, no sacks, and no interceptions in the six games heís played. Perhaps more telling Ė for a player known as one of the NFLís best ball hawkís Ė Reed has not gotten his hands on a single pass. According to the NFLís official statistics he hasnít recorded a pass defense this year.

Reedís three year $15 million deal with the Texans features non-guaranteed salaries of $4 million and $5 million in 2014 and 2015. He could potentially be a cap casualty this offseason as the Texans could look to create cap space to resign J.J. Watt and Kareem Jackson.

Reed was unavailable for comment Wednesday.

(You can delete if this isn't big enough news, just thought it would be good for us to know)

How the mighty have fallen. A HoF player should NEVER be benched for Shiloh Keo. In fact, the words "Shiloh Keo" should never follow "was benched for".

So did the hip thing slow him way down, or is he mailing it in for one last paycheck?

Pretty sure he is still working for the Ravens and just moved here so we would lose some games while Ed Reed gets some extra cash.

I'm thinking this was a Bob McNair signing, not Rick Smith.
