Ed Reed: Wade Phillips Is ‘Probably The Reason’ I Was Released

Reed_Jets_2013 [1]Ed Reed’s tenure with the Texans lasted two forgettable months. After managing just 16 tackles and no picks or passes defended in eight games, Houston released Reed last week. Two days later, Redd signed with the Jets.

Speaking with the media Wednesday ahead of the Jets’ matchup with the Ravens, Reed talked about the circumstances that led to the Texans cutting him.

“I don’t even know how to describe it,” he said of his short stint in Houston (via the Baltimore Sun’s Aaron Wilson). “It was some interesting stuff I experienced with a different organization.”

And while Reed conceded he didn’t have problems with most of the Texans coaching staff, he did say that, in hindsight, defensive coordinator Wade Phillips is “probably the reason I’m not there,” adding: “That defense is not a good fit for a lot of people, not just me. The truth is the truth. …

Reed also said that he hopes he’ll get a warm welcome in his return to Baltimore on Sunday.
