Texans Sign CB Reeves

The Texans signed fourth year veteran CB Jacques Reeves Saturday to a five-year, $20 million contract. The move immediately notches an improvement to the Texans top priority this offseason: the secondary. Reeves started 13 out of 16 games last season in place of Terrence Newman and Anthony Henry for the Dallas Cowboys. Reeves’ signing adds experience to a questionable Texans secondary as he could lock into the starting lineup if he can impress Ray Rhodes and the Texans coaches at minicamps.

For the Texans, veteran CB Dunta Robinson is out until at least November, and Reeves can vastly improve on his 60 tackle-, 12 pass deflection-, one forced fumble- and one interception -2007 season if he can keep up with the improving AFC receiving cores in 2008. If he starts next season, he will most likely be playing opposite to second year CB Fred Bennett to create a young, up and coming Texans secondary led by winning, experienced and wise coaches.
