Ed Reed is heading back to Baltimore after spending time with the Texans. It’s believed the all-pro safety left George Bush Intercontinental Airport with an offer in hand, and will give the Ravens an opportunity to match.
Ravens not sitting idly by. They’re getting involved in talks with Reed. Much as they’ve lost guys, they won’t let him walk w/o a fight.

Texans Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips had heavy Praise for Reed, stating in a tweet “easy to see why Ed Reed is a hall of famer – very smart with great talent.”
The Ravens defense has been ravaged by free agency, with Cary Williams, Dannell Ellerbe and Paul Kruger departing for more money. It’s easy to see why Baltimore wants to keep their leader after the exodus. They’ll need veteran leadership to help inexperienced players–who will need to fill the void– get acclimated.
