The Washington Redskins are not showing patience when it comes to injured former Pro Bowl tight end Jordan Reed.
Reed, 29, missed all of last season after suffering a devastating concussion during the exhibition slate.
According to John Keim of ESPN, Reed has been cleared from the concussion protocol. That’s the good news? Unfortunately for the injury-plagued veteran, that means the Skins are going to release him soon.
Even after suffering through the impact of the above-mentioned concussion, Reed still wants to play. He’ll obviously have some interest from teams looking to sign the former Pro Bowler to a prove-it deal.
As for Washington, this is a clear indication that the team will be looking for a tight end during the spring. Fellow veteran Vernon Davis just recently announced his retirement.
Washington will save $6.7 million against the cap by releasing Reed.
