Jordan Reed will visit the Seahawks today, a source tells ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter (on Twitter). The tight end has suffered at least seven concussions since the start of his collegiate career and the latest one sidelined him for the entire 2019 season.
When healthy, Reed is one of the most explosive tight ends in the game. But, at this juncture, it’s not clear what he can offer, or whether playing football would even be advisable. Despite the question marks, Reed says he wants to return to the NFL.
The Redskins released Reed in February, cutting off the last two years on his five-year, $47MM contract. By dropping him, the Redskins saved $8.5MM against $1.8MM in dead money.
Between 2013 and 2018, Reed tallied 329 receptions for 3,371 yards and 24 touchdowns. He left the Redskins with top-10 placement in franchise history for both TDs and catches, despite all of the missed games.
