What to do after you win your first Super Bowl? Split town and sign with another contender in your conference. That’s exactly what Ed Reed has done after helping the Baltimore Ravens to a win in Super Bowl XLVII; the nine-time Pro Bowler and former NFL Defensive Player of the Year has signed a three-year, $15 million deal with the Houston Texans.
Houston’s defense went from worst to first after Wade Phillips became the team’s defensive coordinator in 2011, but the Texans are still lacking in some areas on that side of the ball. They boasted the NFL’s seventh-best defense in 2012, but still ranked 16th in passing defense while giving up 225.8 yards per game.
