The New York Jets have agreed terms with safety Ed Reed in the wake of his release by the Houston Texans.

Reed, who will be at practice with the Jets for the first time on Thursday, cleared waivers after being let go by the Texans only seven games into his time with the franchise.

The eight-time All-Pro and nine-time Pro Bowl selection left the Baltimore Ravens after their Super Bowl triumph in February, a game in which he added to his impressive interception numbers.

Reed, 35, has led the NFL in picks three times and has 61 career interceptions as he joins only his third team in an 11-year career.

Jets head coach Rex Ryan worked with Reed during the early part of his career when he was with the Ravens as a defensive assistant coach.

They have the league's 24th ranked pass defense, giving up more than 250 yards per game, and have only intercepted five passes all season.
