After seven seasons with the Washington Football Team, Jordan Reed is on the move. As reported by ESPN Senior NFL Insider Adam Schefter, Reed is signing a one-year, incentive-laden contract with the defending NFC champions, the San Francisco 49ers.
Former Washington Football Team Pro Bowl TE Jordan Reed reached agreement on an incentive-laden, one-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers, sources tell ESPN. Reed is 30, has a history of concussions, but when healthy – as he is now – he is one of the game’s elite tight ends.

A Pro Bowler in 2016, Reed missed all of the 2019 season due to suffering a severe concussion during the preseason. If he is able to stay healthy for the Niners in 2020, Reed will form one of the NFL’s most dangerous tight end duos alongside 2019 First-team All-Pro George Kittle.
Drafted out of the University of Florida in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft, Jordan Reed has amassed 24 touchdown passes in his career but has been substantially limited due to concussions. Reed is known to have sustained at least seven concussions over the course of his professional career so far.
