Jordan Reed hasn’t played football since Dec. 9, 2018, but he wants to play again.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the former Washington tight end wants to play this year, and has three teams interested in his services.

The 30-year-old Reed missed all of last season with a concussion, and has played just 65 of a possible 112 games in his career.

When well, he’s produced. During a career-high 14 games in 2015, he had 87 catches for 952 yards and 11 touchdowns.. Unfortunately, he hasn’t been able to stay healthy enough to follow that.

The Seahawks brought him in for a visit in March (after they signed Greg Olsen), so it’s reasonable to believe there’s interest from others.

  1. That he wants to play is proof he’s had 1 too many head injuries. The NFL would be smart to caution ALL teams against signing him.

  2. “Hasn’t played since late 2018”

    Okay, so he missed a season. So did AP. So did Jordy. So did many, many other players. Just say he missed a season.

  3. It’d be worth the Bears giving him a look. Losing Miller to his horrific leg injury and then losing Burton as well limits what that offense can do. When healthy, Reed is a very good player.

  4. He’s a walking medical liability. No team should sign him without a thorough medical exam and even then; he’s 10X more likely to have serious long-term issues.

    And packers291 – A.P. and Jordy weren’t out a year with concussions. He’s played only half the games, mostly because of concussions. Applies and oranges.

  5. Dont injure yourself answering the phone Jordan, this could be your last chance.

  6. The NFL may need to step in on this one, if they want to maintain ANY appearance that the care about player safety.

  7. Reed was a big reason Cousins didn’t 100% crap the bed in Washington. He was Cousins go to receiver and he caught everything Kirk threw his way.

    but i think it’s time to hang it up

  8. Why did the Seahawks bring him in?? To view his medical history & evaluate him. I would hope They would have likely offered him a contract if they felt he was not needlessly exposing himself to further harm……
