49ers, TE Jordan Reed reach agreement on a one-year deal

Aug 3, 2020 at 11:47 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers have reached an agreement on a one-year deal with veteran tight end Jordan Reed, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.


Reed, 30, was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2016. That was a year after his best statistical season in 2015 when he caught 87 passes for 952 yards with 11 touchdowns.

The move gives the 49ers some much-needed depth behind All-Pro tight end George Kittle, who is entering the final year of his rookie deal and is expected soon to become the highest-paid tight end in the NFL.

Kyle Shanahan spent one season (2013) coaching Reed when the 49ers head coach was the offensive coordinator in Washington.

Matt Barrows of The Athletic reported in March that the 49ers had reached out to Reed's agent.

Washington made Reed a third-round selection out of Florida in 2013. He has caught 329 passes for 3,371 yards with 24 touchdowns through his six NFL seasons, not including 2019. Reed has dealt with concussion issues throughout his career, including last year, a season in which he did not play.

49ers TE Jordan Reed steps up with his biggest performance since 2018 in George Kittle's absence

With All-Pro tight end George Kittle sidelined with a knee issue and a number of wide receivers dealing with injuries of their own, the 49ers needed someone to step up and carry the weight in the pass-catching department against the New York Jets on Sunday. Needless to say, veteran tight end Jordan Reed answered the call in a big way. Given his extensive injury history, it was hard to know what to expect from Reed after he signed with the 49ers in August. Reed missed the entire 2019 season after sustaining the seventh known concussion of his career and was limited to 65 total games over his first seven NFL seasons. But after being brought along slowly during training camp, Reed began to show signs of still being the type of player he was earlier in his career
