The Washington Washington Football Team have released tight end Jordan Reed after seven years, the team announced Thursday afternoon.

This move comes as no surprise as Washington was waiting for Reed to clear the NFL’s concussion protocol program before parting ways with the veteran tight end. Releasing Reed will now clear up $8.5 million in salary-cap space for the team.

Reed has reportedly expressed his desire to continue playing football despite having sustained a seventh documented concussion, the latest of which took him six months to be cleared of. When healthy, however, Reed has proven himself to be an effective tight end, having reeled in 329 receptions for 3,371 yards and 23 touchdowns in six seasons, which may interest some NFL teams.

With Vernon Davis retiring and Jordan Reed being released, the Washington Football Team now have only Jeremy Sprinkle, Hale Hentges and Caleb Wilson under contract at the tight end position for the 2020 season. With some cap-space flexibility, the Washington Football Team can opt to pick up a tight end in free agency or draft a tight end in April’s NFL draft.
