Free-agent safety Ed Reed reported $50,000 in cash stolen from his car Wednesday while visiting banks in Houston, the Houston Police Department confirmed Thursday morning.
The future Hall of Famer left the money on the passenger seat of his gray 2006 Audi, registered in Florida. When he returned to the car, the passenger window was smashed and the money was gone, according to the police report.
The incident occurred around 3 p.m. The police report said the cash was in a "bag," although it was described as an "envelope" in another report, a police spokesperson said.
Police believe Reed was followed from one bank to the next. The report didn't state why he was carrying such a large amount of cash. The investigation is ongoing.
Reed, 35, finished last season with the Jets. He signed a one-year contract in November after being released by the Texans, who gave up on the nine-time Pro Bowl after only seven games. He had signed a three-year, $15 million deal with Houston.
He got off to a slow start with the Jets but ended up with three interceptions in seven games, tied for the team lead. Reed, who will be an unrestricted free agent, said at the end of the season that he'd like to continue his career.
The Jets had no comment on the situation. The incident was first reported by KPRC-TV in Houston.
