Ed Reed talks Texans after White House visit

Posted Jun 6, 2013

Safety Ed Reed talked about his new "home", the Texans' organization and more during a Thursday morning interview.

After a Wednesday trip to the White House, Texans’ safety Ed Reed was in good spirits.

He and many of the 2012 Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens visited with President Barack Obama, and this morning on the NFL Network’s “NFL AM” show the 2004 NFL Defensive Player of the Year shared about the highlights of the trip.

At the end of the nearly 6-minute interview, Reed talked about his new team in Houston and his ongoing recovery from a surgical procedure on his hip.

“In going through this process of having to have surgery, I couldn’t have any other organization behind me the way this organization is standing behind me and understanding this process,” Reed said. “Understanding that I’m doing everything possible, and will do everything possible to be at that first game.”

Reed has been rehabbing in Atlanta, and according to head coach Gary Kubiak, will join the team for minicamp on Tuesday.

“He’ll be here next week,” Kubiak said after yesterday's OTA. “He’ll be here basically for just an evaluation process. Obviously he can’t do anything. We know who’s working with him in Atlanta and then we’ll get him here next week.”

In addition to his praise for the Texans’ organization and its response to his surgery, Reed also spoke highly of his head coach, defensive coordinator Wade Phillips and secondary coach Vance Joseph.

“Coach Kubiak is one of the coolest coaches I’ve ever met, and Wade is so laid back you can’t do anything but enjoy him,” Reed said. “And my position coach is really cool.”

Reed also described Houston as being “home”. He and the Texans will go through mandatory work at the Methodist Training Center on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday before taking the last long break of the offseason. Training camp will begin in late July.
