HOUSTON (AP) - Free-agent safety Ed Reed is on the verge of becoming a Houston Texan, according to multiple reports.
CBSSports.com reported Wednesday night that a deal was in place, and the NFL Network quoted Reed as saying he was headed to Houston ``unless something changes.'' Neither Reed nor his agent, David Dunn, immediately returned phone messages left by The Associated Press.
The Texans wouldn't confirm the reports, but it looks as if their bold, public courtship of Reed paid off.
Last Thursday, Reed flew to Houston aboard owner Bob McNair's private jet and Reed spent two days meeting with coaches and management. Reed and his representatives left town without a deal and the Baltimore Ravens were reportedly making a pitch to retain him.
