Ray Lewis is retired. Anquan Boldin was traded to San Francisco. Paul Kruger left via free agency to Cleveland. Dannell Ellerby left via free agency to Miami. Baltimore Released Cary Williams and Bernard Pollard. Well the changes keep a coming for the football champs. This time it is long time safety Ed Reed who reports say is about to sign with the Houston Texans.

Reed was in Houston last week and negotiations seemed to have broken off when the Texans offered a little over 4 million per season to the future hall of famer. Reed was reportedly looking for a deal that would average around 7 million per year. Well sometime between then and now it appears the Texans sweetened their offer and Reed is about to sign on with them.

Baltimore wide receiver Tory Smith tweeted out the following ” No Reed or Ray in Baltimore. This season’s gonna be weird.” Yes indeed plus all these other personal loses makes for an anxious Ravens fan base.

The Texans had a glaring need at safety with the departure of Glover Quinn to Detroit. The Ravens are reportedly going to talk to Raiders free agent safety Michael Huff.

In regards to possibly losing Reed to Houston, Baltimore coach John Harbaugh tweeted to ” Ed is a great friend and player. I will always appreciate our time together.”

Reed has been with the Ravens for all of his 11 years in the NFL, drafted out of Miami University. Reed has made the pro bowl 8 times as a member of the Ravens. He is the all time franchise leader in interceptions with 61. He has an all time NFL record of 1,541 return yards off those interceptions. Reed has scored 14 touchdowns in his career via interception or kick returns. he is the only NFL player in history to score TD’s via interception, fumble return, a punt return, and a blocked punt.

Last season, despite some off season waffling from Reed about retiring he played in all 16 regular season games. He finished with 58 tackles and a team high 4 interceptions.
