"In hindsight, he's probably the reason I'm not there," Reed said of Phillips, via Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.
Reed, who was released by the Texans last week, will return to Baltimore for the second time in 2013 on Sunday. But he still was talking about the "interesting stuff" that went on in Houston. Reed said he didn't have a problem with the players or "most of the coaches." He made it clear that Phillips was the exception.
"He came in and basically made sure I was leaving," Reed said.
