Redskins release former Pro Bowl tight end Jordan Reed, saving $8.5M in 2020 salary cap space
Reed missed all of 2019 while in concussion protocol
Jordan Reed to playing in 2020, but it won't be with the Washington Redskins. The Redskins have released the former Pro Bowl tight end roughly a month before the start of free agency, as announced via the team's Twitter, clearing an estimated $8.5 million in salary cap space for the offseason.
Reed is a notable name at tight end, having once served as Washington's top target in the passing game. His 2015 breakout (87 catches, 952 yards, 11 touchdowns) seemingly put him among the game's best at his position and earned him a five-year, $46.5 million contract extension. But the Florida product has missed 33 games over the last four seasons, and he's also yet to play a full 16-game schedule, spending all of 2019 on injured reserve following a preseason concussion.
