It only took a day, but finally the official numbers of Ed Reed’s new contract with the Houston Texans have trickled out. Yesterday we thought Reed had only reached a two year agreement with the Texans, but according to the NFL Network’s Albert Breer, Reed will earn $15 million with his new three year deal, possibly making a little bit more than the Texans planned to pay him each season – which looks to be around $6 million.
Reed flew into Houston on Thursday and is set to officially put pen to paper early on Friday morning. He marks the third player of the Texans young free agency campaign next to corner Brice McCain and offensive tackle Andrew Gardner, but is by far the biggest new name likely to grace the roster heading into next season.
As well as signing his contract on Friday, Reed will also make an appearance at a press conference.
