HOUSTON -

Nine-time Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed has been released by the Houston Texans.
    
The team made the move official Tuesday afternoon. Reed tweeted: "Thanks to the Texans! And the City of Htown!"
    
Reed missed the first two games after hip surgery and was recently relegated to a backup role. On Friday, he expressed his displeasure at not starting.
    
On Sunday, after Houston's seventh straight loss, he publicly criticized the team and said they had been outplayed and outcoached.
    
The 35-year-old Reed was signed to a three-year, $15 million contract in the offseason after he spent his entire 11-year career with Baltimore.
    
The Texans also put running back Arian Foster on injured reserve as he struggles with a back injury.
