I like to think that Rex could get more out of him. Low risk signing, I like it. He already knows this defense.

It's not like he is the old Ed Reed, he is just old Ed Reed. But it def makes sense because he knows this defense, and because he won't be a starter.

Ed reed will always be one of my favorite players all time. I'm just glad his career isn't over.

Not a bad signing at all.

Ideal, and probably his best chance of contributing since he knows the defense.

Played his best with Rex so lets see if Rex can get him playing well again. For basically no risk at all why not.

Not the same physically anymore but still as smart as they come. Hopefully it was more lack of motivation with HOU.

Ed Reed with Rex Ryan should be okay. I still think Ed should just retire, but you know what, I'm going to cherish every moment of getting to watch him on the field because he's my all-time favorite player and this may be the last few games I ever get to see of him.

That defense is starting to get ridiculous. It's going to be on the Carolina/Seahawk level in like 1-2 more drafts..

Ed Reed is older, but he's still a presence. He hasn't lost his instinct or knowledge, and especially for his position that is most important. A chance worth taking.

But Ed Reed won't be there by the time those drafts take place, so your point being made in this thread holds no relevance whatsoever.

He really isnt a presence at all any more...at least not on the field. If he was, he wouldnt have been cut from a safety weak Texans team in the middle of the season. Teams are aware of him but no one is afraid to attack him and expose his declined physical skills. He might be able to mentor the secondary, but he is more of a liability on the field these days than an asset.

Low risk signing and an ideal situation, but his impact on the field will likely be minimal.

His best season was probably under Mike Nolan (2004 DPOY). He did play incredibly well under Rex, but I'm not sure Rex really has a secret to unlock his abilities at this point. I honestly think his comfort with other players around him is a bigger deal at this point due to his gambling nature rather than system/scheme comfort.

He was pretty rough in Baltimore last year as well, so its not a matter of motivation.

He just isnt good anymore.

If Ed signed with another team, I'm glad it was with Rex Ryan. I bet this will be a much, much better fit for him knowing Ryan so well.

I'm pretty sure motivation was somewhat of an issue /w the Texans, regressing skills or not.
