Houston Texans – Ed Reed

Ed Reed was one of the most explosive safeties in NFL history for one of the more dominant defenses in NFL history. Reed was the 24th overall pick out of Miami and spent 11 seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. During that time, he and Ray Lewis worked together to form one of the nastiest, and most charismatic defenses the league has ever seen.

Reed was known for his incredible instincts that always placed him around the football. In all, he played 13 seasons in the NFL and only once finished a season without multiple interceptions — which was in 2005 when he played in just 10 games and had one pick.

Three times in his career, Reed led the league in interceptions as he recorded nine in both 2004 and 2008 as well as eight in 2010. He finished his time in Baltimore with 608 tackles, 61 interceptions, seven defensive touchdowns, 135 pass defenses, and 11 forced fumbles. Simply put, this dude was a bad man.

Reed finally won a Super Bowl in 2012 with Baltimore and then played one more season in the NFL. He split time between the Houston Texans and New York Jets as he was traded to New York after playing seven games for Houston.

He wasn’t really a fit there but latched on with the Jets and had three picks in his final seven games before deciding to call it a career.
