LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins announced today that they have signed tight end Jordan Reed to a multi-year contract extension. Full terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Reed (6-2, 237) was originally selected by the Redskins in the third round (85th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft. He has appeared in 34 career regular season games with 14 starts, accruing 182 career receptions for 1,916 yards with 14 receiving touchdowns.
Reed finished the 2015 regular season with 87 receptions for 952 yards (both team records for a tight end) with a team-high 11 receiving touchdowns.
