Ed Reed is still fuming over the way he was cut by the Houston Texans. And on Wednesday, during a conference call, Reed let the Texans and defensive coordinator Wade Phillips hear about it.
"That defense is not a good fit for a lot of people who are still down there. It wasn't just about me,'' Reed said. "And my comments were not just about me. Obviously, that's why I'm not there anymore because people felt some kind of way about what I said.
"The truth is the truth. And that's the reason why what happened last week happened. They know I know.''
So what did Reed say that triggered Houston to release him just two days later? Well, Reed basically criticized the coaching staff by saying they got "outcoached" by the Arizona Cardinals.
Luckily for Reed, Rex Ryan and the Jets picked him up, but Reed is still upset over the way things went sour in Texas, even blaming his demise on Phillips.
"Yeah, Wade said something to me. He came in and basically made sure that I was leaving, and, honestly, he's probably the reason I'm not there,'' Reed said. "It's all good. I'm not worried about it."
Reed doesn't sound like a guy who is "not worried about it". Nonetheless, he has been given a new chance in New York, and has plenty of motivation to redeem himself at this point.
