OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Ed Reed insists Houston Texans defensive co-ordinator Wade Phillips is doing a poor job, and the safety was released by the team earlier this month because Reed spoke up about it.

Now with the New York Jets, Reed said in a conference call with the Baltimore media on Wednesday that the Houston defence "is not a good fit for a lot of people who are still down there."

Reed was waived by the Texans in the wake of a loss to Arizona on Nov. 10. After the game, he said, "Certain situations we just got outplayed and outcoached."

On Wednesday, Reed said, "The truth is the truth. You've got to put your players in a position to make plays."

Asked if he talked to Phillips, Reed said, "(He) basically just made sure I was leaving. Honestly, of all people, he's probably the guy, the reason I'm not there."

The Texans said Phillips was not available Wednesday for comment, but would be available to speak on Thursday.

Reed spent his entire career with the Ravens before signing as a free agent with Houston during the off-season. This will be his second game this season in Baltimore.

Houston wide receiver Andre Johnson, who also played with Reed at Miami, said, "People feel certain ways. Maybe that's how he felt when he was here. Other than that, I really can't speak on it. That's Ed's feelings."
