In addition to getting linebacker Brian Cushing (knee surgery) back, the Texans added veteran Ed Reed to the secondary. He should bring presence and professionalism that can help in the weeks they have to face Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Colin Kaepernick, Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck (twice). Regardless of those six unfavorable matchups, this is a top-five unit that should be considered right after the Seahawks and 49ers D/STs are off the board.
