Question about English (US)

I am studying cognitive linguistics and in there was a lecture where lecturer said one interesting thing. There are two sentence:

1. This is the report that I filled before reading.
2. I filed the report before reading.

They are both pretty understandable and look pretty normal for me, but lecturer said that any native speaker would say that the second one is ungrammatical and wrong, but it is unclear why so.

Is it really ungrammatical and can someone try to explain why is it felt so?
