Former Florida tight end Jordan Reed retiring from the NFL
After seven seasons in the NFL, Jordan Reed is hanging up his cleats.
Reed made an impact in the league but he will remain one of the biggest “what-ifs” in recent NFL history as the tight end failed to play a full season during his time in the pros due to various injuries.
After appearing in 10 games last season, Reed is retiring according to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport. Reed missed the entire 2019 season after suffering a concussion in the preseason.
Despite battling injuries throughout his career, Reed managed to haul in 355 receptions for 3,602 yards and 28 touchdowns playing for Washington and San Francisco. During his time in the NFL, Reed started 36 games and appeared in 75.
A third-round selection in the 2013 NFL Draft, Reed left Florida after three seasons, making 79 catches for 945 yards and six touchdowns in Gainesville.
