Seahawks Re-Sign DT Jarran Reed

Jarran Reed will be back in Seattle next season. NFL.com’s Tom Pelissero reports (via Twitter) that the defensive tackle has re-signed with the Seahawks. It’s a two-year pact worth $23MM.

The 2016 second-round pick has spent his entire career with the Seahawks. Following a pair of forgettable seasons to start his career, Reed absolutely broke out during the 2018 campaign. He finished that season having compiled 50 tackles and 10.5 sacks in 16 games (16 starts).

Reed was suspended for the first six games of the 2019 season after violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy, but he still managed to get into 10 games for Seattle. In total, the 27-year-old finished the season with 27 tackles and one forced fumble.

It’s been a relatively quiet day in Seattle. Besides placing tendering a handful of players (including tight end Jacob Hollister), this is their first reported move.

      Totally disagree. Reed will definitely be worth this very good 2 year deal, well done Schneider and company. Crucial piece to getting the front 7 back to where it needs to be.

    It is an overpay. Reed his first two years barely got any pressure and this past season was very mediocre. The draft is full of good DT and the Seahawks could have put Reed’s money toward a more consistent run stuffing DT.

      Huh? DT is a huge weak spot in this draft. People are sleeping on Reed because the stat line didn’t look great in 2019 but he’s a stud. He will justify this deal. Good signing.

        Nothing says stud like 15.5 career sacks. His first two years he averaged 1.5 sacks and if you prorate his 2 sacks to a 16 game season that’s 2.75 sacks. Simply put his one good year of 10.5 sacks is an outlier…

          And we all know how important sacks are in determining a DT’s worth – did you watch him play last year? He looks legit, not just looking at the jump in sacks…
