Ed Reed looks set to be playing elsewhere in 2013.

CBS’ Jason La Canfora reports that the Texans and Reed have reached a contract agreement. Brad Davis, an advisor to Reed, told La Canfora that an agreement has been struck, with only a few details to be worked out before the contract is finalized.

Per La Canfora, the contract is for two years.

Reed, 34, has 61 career interceptions, all with the Ravens. He notched 58 tackles, defended 15 passes and picked off four passes in 2012 for Baltimore. He added an interception in Baltimore’s victory in Super Bowl XLVII, further adding to his legacy of rising to the occasion in big games.

The Texans, who have yet to advance beyond the divisional round in their history, are counting upon Reed to replace Glover Quin -- and to help push them forward in the AFC playoff chase.

Reed was N0. 35 on PFT’s Free Agent Hot 100.
