HOUSTON (AP) -- Free agent safety Ed Reed is finally a Houston Texan.
The nine-time Pro Bowl safety signed a contract with Houston on Friday, a week after leaving town with no deal in place.
The Texans did not disclose terms, though the Houston Chronicle reported it was a three-year deal worth $15 million, with $5 million guaranteed.
The move is another blow to Baltimore, where Reed played his first 11 NFL seasons.
The 34-year-old Reed made $7.2 million last season with the Ravens, who've been gutted in free agency since beating San Francisco in the Super Bowl. Reed and Ray Lewis were cornerstones of one of the NFL's most feared defenses for more than a decade, and now both are gone. Lewis retired and now works for ESPN.
