Hey, I don't know if you heard, but Ed Reed flew in to meet with the Texans today. Something about maybe moving here for a job. I'm not privy to the discussions between Reed and Rick Smith, so I could be wrong. What I am privy to, however, is Twitter. And Twitter says Ed Reed, while not having yet agreed to play safety for the 2013 Houston Texans, has not left Houston left. He's spending the night. That's always a good sign, right?
Busy day, but the #Texans still haven't signed anyone in free agency. Ed Reed is spending the night and will have dinner w/coaches tonight.— Tania Ganguli (@taniaganguli) March 15, 2013
If nothing else, Ed Reed's people like what they've seen from the Texans thus far:
Southern hospitality is amazing... great meeting @sonofbumtoday...what a great players coach! twitter.com/Bscrap12/statu…— Brad Davis (@Bscrap12) March 15, 2013
Which in turn has the NFL insiders speculating that all of the evidence indicates Reed will become a Texan:
That last RT was from Brad Davis, Ed Reed's financial advisor - Fair to say the Ed Reed train is way out of Baltimore with next stop H-town— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) March 15, 2013
Ravens S Ed Reed spoke today like a man saying goodbye to Baltimore. Every sign now points to him getting done a deal in Houston on Friday.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 14, 2013
I'm feeling pretty good about the Texans' chances of landing Ed Reed. How about you?
