Texans to meet with future Hall of Famer Ed Reed, lose Glover Quin

Posted: Updated:

After losing free agent safety Glover Quin to the Detroit Lions, the Houston Texans set up a visit on Thursday with free agent safety Ed Reed.

The Texans have also expressed interest in free agent safety Charles Woodson, according to his agent Carl Poston, who told FOX 26 Sports no visit has been set up yet.

Woodson, selected to the Pro Bowl eight times, began his career as a cornerback before switching to safety and met with the San Francisco 49ers on Wednesday.

Reed, a former NFL Defensive Player of the Year, played in nine Pro Bowls and is a lock for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

He helped lead the Baltimore Ravens to their win over the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl last month.

Quin, who began his career with the Texans as a cornerback and switched to safety, started every game for Houston during the past three years, and he started 12 of 15 games during his rookie season.

Quin signed a 5-year contract with Lions worth $26.250 million.

"It's a little weird," Quin said in an interview with FOX 26 Sports at Bush Intercontinental Airport. "Obviously I've been here for four years and this is where I started. Today I started a new chapter in my career."

The Texans took Quin in the fourth round of the 2009 NFL Draft out of New Mexico.

He leaves the Texans with five career interceptions, three recovered fumbles and one quarterback sack.

"I've worked hard," Quin said. "I've played a lot of different positions, moved around, did a lot of different things.
To see that somebody noticed it and wanted to reward me for it and appreciates the work that I've done and things that I can do, it feels good. I'm just excited to have somebody who wanted me and who was willing to give me a contract."

Quin said he enjoyed his time with the Texans and switching teams like this is part of the game.

"It's a business," Quin said. "It's nothing personal.

"It just didn't work out."
