This isn’t a case of wondering about what people do with their money but rather another take on why you shouldn’t leave a decent teacher’s salary in the front seat of your car.

Former Houston Texans safety Ed Reed found himself the victim of a robbery yesterday as a car belonging to him had its window smashed and a bag of money stolen from it according to KPRC. Sources say that the bag contained up to $50,000.

The robbery took place at the Bank of America in the 12000 block of Westheimer near the Westpark Tollway. Reed had retrieved the money from another bank down the street. There’s no clear ideas as to why the former Texan & Baltimore Raven was back in Houston after a rather unceremonious release from the team last November.

The Texans signed the future Hall Of Fame safety to a 3-year, $15 million contract last March but Reed’s tenue, much like the Texans season was rocky from the beginning.

A nagging hip injury kept him off the field until the third game of the season, ironically the start of the team’s 14-game losing streak. After being critical of the team following a loss to Arizona in November and a very public spat with then defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, Reed was let go. He finished the year with the New York Jets.
