The Houston Texans rolled out the red carpet for Ed Reed on his visit to the team. On Friday, the Texans made it clear that they don't see Reed as just another veteran signing. "It is truly a great day for our franchise," GM Rick Smith said. The Texans emphasized Reed's ability at making interceptions as the reason they wanted him. "We haven't had that guy that's a centerfielder and can cover all that ground. Ed Reed does that," owner Bob McNair said.
