Earth-shattering news for Houston Texans fans this evening: ED REED HAS RETIRED. The future Hall of Famer took to Twitter to make the announcement himself.
Just made it official! Thank u guys for all the support! #reeeeedtired— 20 reed (@TwentyER) April 1, 2015
Naturally, Reed is leaving the game
because no team would sign him at any point during the 2014 season in the humble manner in which Texans fans will always remember him.
Best of luck to Mr. Reed as he embarks upon this new chapter in his life. No word yet on whether he'll pursue a career in bank robbery.
