Jordan Reed has interest from three teams
As is common with playmaking tight ends, injuries follow them everywhere they go. Rob Gronkowski, Greg Olsen, former Redskins tight end Jordan Reed, you name it – the big-name tight ends combine big plays with big injuries. For Reed, his history with concussions makes it very tough for his NFL career to continue, yet his return to the league is drawing interest from at least a few teams.
According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, there are three teams that are interested in at least taking a look at Jordan Reed to see if he would fit into their plans at tight end. While seven documented concussions are a lot for one player to have, and many less have ruined the careers of many players before him, Reed looks to be interested in giving it one final go.
Having visited with the Seattle Seahawks back in March, Jordan Reed has been generating limited interest across the league, but the Seahawks signed Olsen this offseason to pair with Will Dissly, who is coming off of an Achilles injury and hopes to be ready for the beginning of the season.
While the teams that have shown interest in him are not currently known, a few would make sense for Jordan Reed as a reclamation project.
The Arizona Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, and Jacksonville Jaguars are all looking to find another offensive weapon, and while Reed’s role would not need to be that of a TE1, he would be a great complimentary piece to the current roster build of each of these teams.
For the Cardinals, their offseason addition of wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins helps cover up their lackluster TE spot, although Maxx Williams currently projects as the top option for Kyler Murray to throw to. Jordan Reed would offer the vertical threat option Williams does not bring.
The Dolphins have Mike Gesicki as a solid option for Tua Tagovoiloa to throw to, and the Jaguars signed another injury-prone option, Tyler Eifert, this offseason as well, making it likely that both teams could use Jordan Reed.
