The Giants and Seals-Jones (concussion) agreed to a contract Wednesday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. Seals-Jones is joining the fifth organization of his career and a team in great need at his position after Evan Engram left for Jacksonville, Kyle Rudolph and Kaden Smith (knee) were cut in recent weeks, and Levine Toilolo (Achilles) hit free agency. Seals-Jones flashed at times last season for Washington when Logan Thomas (knee) was sidelined, gathering in 30 of 49 passes for 271 yards and two touchdowns. With the Giants, Seals-Jones will serve as the team's unquestioned top tight end due to the competition combining for three career catches, all which came from Chris Myarick last season.
Washington has placed Seals-Jones (concussion) on injured reserve. No surprise here, as Seals-Jones was already ruled out for Washington's regular-season finale. With the team not in the playoff picture, his 2021 campaign has officially come to an end. He will end the year with 30 receptions for 271 yards and two touchdowns. The 26-year-old is set to become an unrestricted free agent in the offseason.
Seals-Jones (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. Seals-Jones made some noise earlier in the season when Logan Thomas missed time with a hamstring injury, but Washington later turned to a timeshare between RSJ and rookie John Bates after Thomas suffered a season-ending ACL tear. Bates now figures to close out the season in a three-down role, though he can't match Thomas or Seals-Jones when it comes to speed/ athleticism. In any case, Seals-Jones finishes the year with a 30-271-2 receiving line on 49 targets, and he's now scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent right around the time of his 27th birthday in mid-March.
Seals-Jones (concussion) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports. Seals-Jones entered the concussion protocol this past Sunday versus the Eagles after he toppled into a cameraman while attempting to catch a Taylor Heinicke pass along the right side of the end zone. The tight end required a backboard to get off the field, and his lack of practice reps so far this week has him trending in the wrong direction ahead of a Week 18 road game against the Giants. Friday's practice report ultimately could decide Seals-jones' fate for that contest. With Sammis Reyes (hamstring) logging a limited session Thursday, John Bates is the only healthy TE on Washington's active roster.
Seals-Jones (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. Even before Seals-Jones exited last week's loss to the Eagles when he was carted off the field following a sideline collision with a cameraman, John Bates had been taking on more of Washington's tight-end snaps over the past few games. Bates should have a three-down role Week 18 against the Giants if Seals-Jones isn't able to play.
