End of The Road For The HOF Safety??

News broke earlier this week that the Texans cut their veteran free agent safety Ed Reed after signing him to a three year deal in the off season.

After a 2-7 start to the season and demoting the  9 time pro- bowler to second string the right move presumably was to go younger, save money and cut the disgruntled safety.

"We were out coached and outplayed" were his recent comments following a 24-27 loss at the hands of the Arizona Cardinals.

The move in the long term may pan out to be a good one for the Texans as they are now in search for a franchise quarterback being that Matt Schaub has had a season to forget to say the least..

My question is though, will any contender pick up the 35 year old future all of fame safety as a rental for a small price for the remainder of the season? Coming off of off season hip surgery a slow start while rounding into form had to be expected, but I'm sure this is not the way he had hoped on going out. I think he has some juice left in the tank but maybe he should of taken the route of his former teammate Ray Lewis.

If this is the end of the road for "The Ball Hawk".. I salute arguably the greatest safeties of all time and my personal favorite to watch make play after play over the years.
