Houston Texans Beat Writer John McClain tweets this afternoon the the Texans have released veteran safety Ed Reed this afternoon. Reed joined the Houston club this past offseason after signing a 3-year deal worth $15 million with $6 million guaranteed. His base salary for 2013 was $3 million dollars.

Reed struggled to get on the field this season while dealing with a hip injury and did not start the season until week 3 for the Texans. In seven games, Reed recorded just 16 total tackles and was a non-factor for the slumping Houston defense. This could be the first of many moves the franchise makes in the coming weeks and months after such a disappointing season.

The veteran safety had already been demoted and his comments after the Texans loss to the Arizona Cardinals didn’t help matters. He was a costly experiment for the Texans this season, and it remains to be seen if another team will roll the dice with the broken down veteran.
