The Redskins have released tight end Jordan Reed after seven seasons in Washington.
Reed, 29, was a third-round pick out of Florida in 2013, selected 85th overall by former Redskins coach Mike Shanahan.
Reed has been a force on the field for the Redskins, when he could stay on it, bringing a game-changing dynamic to the offense that opponents had to game-plan for, often commanding double teams that allowed the rest of the Redskins offense to thrive. Reed made one Pro Bowl in 2016, but his best season in Washington came in 2015, when he caught 87 balls for 952 yards and 11 touchdowns over just 14 games.
But injuries became all too commonplace for Reed, who has never played a full 16-game season and has only played in 19 games over the past three seasons. Unfortunately, concussions, too, have become commonplace for Reed, with a consistency that has left many fans hoping he chooses retirement in the interest of self-preservation.
