Reed (undisclosed) is signing with the Chiefs, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. Reed is inking a one-year deal, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. He'll line up alongside Chris Jones and form one of the league's better interior pass rush duos. The 28-year-old has 19 sacks over the past three seasons despite playing through a number of injuries in 2020, including an undisclosed issue for which he underwent surgery back in January.
The Seahawks released Reed (undisclosed) on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. After five successful seasons with Seattle, Reed will look to suit up elsewhere in 2021. While his injury status is unclear at the time, when healthy, the 28-year-old plays a three-down role on the defensive front. Reed recorded 38 tackles (20 solo), 6.5 sacks, one pass breakup and a forced fumble in 16 games during 2020.
Reed (undisclosed) underwent a surgical procedure Thursday, Ben Arthur of SeattlePI reports. Reed played a full 16-game slate in 2020 despite dealing with a number of injuries, including oblique, back and leg issues, but it remains uncertain what specific injury he's now undergoing surgery to address. It'll be worth monitoring the starting defensive tackle's health as the offseason unfolds.
Reed posted 38 tackles, 6.5 sacks and a pass breakup over 16 games during the 2020 season. Reed hasn't missed a game due to an injury since the 2017 season. The 2016 second-round pick finished second on the team in sacks while averaging 53 defensive snaps per game. Reed is locked into a starting defensive tackle role again in 2021, which marks the final year of his current contract.
Reed is good to go for Saturday's wild-card round against the Rams. After battling an oblique injury during last week's game against the 49ers, Reed is listed as active for the wild-card game. The fifth-year defensive tackle has tallied 38 stops and 6.5 sacks throughout the regular season.
