Offseason Moves: Same Faces, New Places

Whether through free agency or trades, this offseason contained big-name switches that may alter the landscape of the 2013 NFL season.

The Houston Texans brought in former NFL Defensive Player of the Year and nine-time Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed (left), who spent his first 11 seasons in Baltimore.

"I have watched Houston so many times, I know what this team has and what this organization has," says Reed. "There's a goal that's been set, from top to bottom, and I want to come in to play championship football."

Other familiar faces have joined new teams, including quarterbacks Carson Palmer (Arizona) and Alex Smith (Kansas City), running backs Reggie Bush (Detroit) and Steven Jackson (Atlanta), wide receivers Percy Harvin (Seattle), Greg Jennings (Minnesota), Mike Wallace (Miami) and Wes Welker (Denver) and cornerback Darrelle Revis (Tampa Bay).
