Safety Ed Reed had a sweet gig in Baltimore for 11 seasons and then this past off-season decided to take a three-year, $15 million deal to play for the Houston Texans.

Just two days after the Texans fell to 2-7 by losing to Arizona and Reed saying publicly that his team was, "outplayed and outcoached", he was cut by Houston on Tuesday afternoon.

Immediately after the news came out, ESPN Analyst Jerome Bettis said on SportsCenter that Reed would be a good fit with the New York Giants.

Reed had been demoted to a reserve role and only played 12 snaps in the most recent game.

The next step is to go through waivers where any team interested in Reed would pay a $1 million base and an extra $62,500 for each game he plays.

Currently at Free Safety for the G-Men is 5th year veteran Ryan Mundy.
