Redskins finish up draft class by signing Jordan Reed

T.J. Worthy, Jordan Reed AP

Add another team to the list of those with all of their draft picks under contract.

The Redskins tweeted a picture of third-round tight end Jordan Reed signing his contract on Friday. With the 85th overall pick under contract, all seven members of their 2013 draft class have agreed to deals with the team.

Reed caught 45 passes for 559 yards and three touchdowns at Florida in 2012 and profiles as a pass-catching specialist at the professional level. Greg Cosell of NFL Films was a big fan of Reed’s heading into the draft, comparing him to former Gator and current Patriot tight end Aaron Hernandez when it comes to his ability to make an impact in the passing game.

For now, the Redskins will likely settle for Reed serving as a complement to Fred Davis. Davis is in the final year of his contract, so the best-case scenario would have Reed stepping up to be part of the plan to replace him if Davis winds up leaving after the 2013 season.

    If Davis is not ready to go on Week 1, the draft gurus who called Reed a “wasted draft pick” or “luxury pick” by the Redskins will have to change their tune.

    Yeah, because if you don’t have a first rd. pick you may as well not even draft. What rd. was Alfred Morris picked in again? The 6th?

    With Reed, Davis, Garcon and Hankerson taking that next step, our passing game is going to dangerous. HTTR

    Seems as if Davis is on his way out. If Davis has a good year then he’ll be pushing for the million’s that the Redskins aren’t going to see justifiable for one good year for the simple fact that one year isn’t enough to prove your injury prone days are over.
    A bad year, or an injury and Davis won’t be as appealing as Reed.
    HTTR!!!
