Texans release Ed Reed

Posted: Updated:

The Houston Texans released safety Ed Reed on Tuesday.

The move comes two days after Reed said the Texans were "outplayed and out coached" by the Arizona Cardinals in their 27-24 victory over Houston on Sunday.

None of the Texans players interviewed about Reed's criticism agreed with his thoughts.

On Monday interim coach Wade Phillips chose not to respond to Reed's criticism, pointing out that it was team policy to keep things like that "in house."

Reed was replaced in the starting lineup by Shiloh Keo two weeks ago.

He was mainly playing in passing situations and saw action in only 12 plays against the Cardinals.

Reed has responded on his twitter account:

"Thanks to the Texans! And the City of Htown!," Reed wrote on Twitter.

Reed signed a three-year contract with the Texans during the off season that guaranteed him $5 million.

Reed underwent arthroscopic surgery on his hip in April which caused him to miss training camp, all of the preseason and the first two games of the regular season.

Reed said after the game on Sunday, that while he is held to a high standard because of his past accomplishments, he is a totally different player now.
