You have to think that he's contemplated retirement at some point, don't you?

I don't think so. He's admitted that when he thinks he's been concussed he tries to hide it from the team to keep playing.  He'll probably keep trying to play until a terrible injury or until he's hurt so much nobody will hire him.

If the Redskins were smart they'd work out an injury settlement with  him coupled with a contract to join the coaching staff. Then he wouldn't be out on the street and he wouldn't be playing. But Dan Snyder owns the team so that ain't happening.

That just leaves me shaking my head. Hard to believe.

Jordan Reed (concussion) was ruled out for Week 3 against the Bears.

Reed is still in the concussion protocol and remains week to week given his unfortunate history of concussions. Low-end streamer Vernon Davis will be Case Keenum's starting tight end against Chicago on Monday Night Football.

I bet the Redskins knew that they were going to hold Reed out for an extended period because of his concussion history.  But they've acted like he could play each week to cause their opponents to gameplan for him.  Dastardly soma#####es.

NBC Sports' JP Finlay reports Jordan Reed (concussion) could be out "weeks."

Reed is understandably taking his time with a return from his preseason concussion. The tight end has been a limited participant in some practice drills, but he's still not cleared for contact. At some point, the Redskins will have to debate placing him on injured reserve, though that hasn't been reported quite yet. Vernon Davis will continue to start in his absence.

At some point you need to quit wasting the roster spot, don't you? I think I'd rather have a less skilled player for 16 games than a talented one for maybe six a season. Just seems like the offense can never really gel if the positional players are on a rotisserie.

Another one of those players you hate to roster but can't drop.

I see the opposite: a player you can never count on to play and shouldn't be rostered.

I was referring to dynasty leagues, but I just posted he was dropped and I didn't pick him up, so that sort of nullifies my statement.

At this stage does it matter what Jordan Reed is considering?  If you’re the Redskins, don’t you sit the guy down and say enough is enough?  He can’t go a game without getting his brain scrambled or suffering an injury of some sort.  But the brain stuff is alarming.

The Redskins expect Jordan Reed (concussion) to return this season.

"I’m not worried about that, no," was coach Jay Gruden's response when asked if Reed's career was in doubt. "He has seen specialists, and we are just trying to get to the bottom of it and figuring out the best way to make him more comfortable, get him back in the lineup." Despite Gruden's positivity, Reed remains without a timetable for a return.

Jordan Reed (concussion) ruled out for Week 5.

Coach Jay Gruden said Reed will be back at some point this season, but the return doesn't seem particularly imminent. Vernon Davis (concussion) is also sidelined. This means Jeremy Sprinkle could play a near every-down role for the Colt McCoy-led Redskins offense. Opportunity rules all in fantasy football, but the passing game couldn't ask for a worse matchup than against the Patriots. Sprinkle remains nothing more than a thin streamer option.

Did not practice today. 

Vernon Davis did but was limited.

I think the team is going to go with Davis this weekend.

Redskins placed TE Jordan Reed (concussion) on injured reserve.

Reed missed the first five weeks in the concussion protocol, and he's unfortunately still experiencing concussion symptoms. Fired coach Jay Gruden said Reed would be back this year, but there's not much reason to bring him back with the Redskins in a full tank. Reed is eligible to return in Week 14. With Vernon Davis sidelined, Jeremy Sprinkle will start Sunday's game against Miami.

Finally dropped this guy in dynasty and no one picked him up. Guess I could now put him on IR but I’ve lost all interest.

He just got dropped in my dynasty. I'm thinking about adding him to my IR, simply because it's open.

That's what I did. He should retire but if he doesn't...I'm not gonna let any off-season hype like he had this year go to waste. People always fall for it.

While I should know better I definitely fell for it this year.

Such a good player when he plays. Also the lack of other targets available was just too tempting to pass up.

Not only that but an OL that looked like it was a recipe for checkdowns and short passes. And a starting QB(at the time) that imo doesn't really look downfield much. A HC(at the time) that passes quite a bit. A set of DB's that can't really cover so there was a good chance they would be throwing to catch up often.

There were plenty of opportunity markers there for both Reed and Chris Thompson imo, but as usual they just can't stay healthy. As long as you aren't playing draft-and-go I don't think it's all that big a miss. You just end up dropping them when they get hurt and going with the hot FA pickup. If someone was EXPECTING big production from either, that was obviously a mistake. But as a high-upside late rounder I didn't think the cost was too much at all.

ESPN's John Keim said it's "hard to imagine" the Redskins retaining Jordan Reed.

The Redskins have begun cleaning house, releasing Josh Norman and Paul Richardson just in the last few hours. If Washington's roster purge continues under new coach Ron Rivera, the injury-prone Reed could be next up on the chopping block. The 29-year-old Florida alum never saw the field in 2019 while feeling the effects of his seventh reported concussion. Adding veteran Greg Olsen, who the Redskins hosted for a free-agent visit earlier this week, would make Reed expendable. Even if Olsen lands elsewhere—the Bills and Seahawks are also said to be pursuing him—cutting Reed would still make plenty of sense as his release would free up $8.5 million in cap space.

When do they drive him to the airport? Easiest cut this offseason.

You would think so. Maybe he's just super likable and they love his passion for the game and are having a hard time dropping the hammer...but for his own health he really needs to retire.

I think the issue is that, when healthy, he's still one of the top-10 TE's in the NFL. He just is rarely healthy. They are probably afraid if they dump him, and he is a pro bowler elsewhere, they look stupid, because they already had him under contract, at a position where there are very few difference makers.

It's a different FO now, no loyalty to him and they'll save a ton in cap space.

That isn't really true. Sure he peaked 5 years ago, but its not like he completely disappeared.

He was 9th in YPG among TE's as recently as 2018, and that was on a team that started 4 different QB's, none of whom are a lock to even be in the NFL in 2020. I'm not sure there are more than a handful of TE's who would have done better in that situation. 

Its true, he's not on the Kelce/Kittle/Ertz(and its probably not too soon to add Andrews to that group) level anymore. But he's every bit as good as guys like Cook, Henry, Hooper, and Ebron. He's just less durable and has had worse offenses/QB play. 

If we lived in a world where injuries weren't a factor, I'd put Reed in the 6-10 range at TE. Injuries are the only reason that he is a cut candidate(and a good reason) but I'm just saying I can see why the Redskins have been holding on, because its unlikely whomever they replace him with will be better, just more available.

In standard, he was TE 19 in ppg in 2018. I have no interest in him and would say he’s a waste of a roster spot. I have no interest in an injury prone TE who hasn’t even been startable when healthy in a few years.

I agree, but might have him as a top 5 pass catching TE if we lived in world where health was not a factor.

Right or wrong, I read multiple pieces that the design of the Redskins passing game was centered on him so they must have obviously liked what they saw.

Not sure if anyone ever read the article on him and the concussion he suffered in the preseason game which made him lose his season.  It was his first preseason action of the year and plan was for it to be his last. I can't recall if on the previous series he failed to make the catch or caught it and fumbled but the play was not a success. The staff tried to pull him from the game but he pleaded to go back in, said he wanted to make a positive play before his pre-season was over and then got concussed and lost for the season on the next series.

Based on everything I hear he wants to keep playing. But can't imagine he'll get a sizeable contract due to injury issues, probably one loaded with incentives and small on salary/guaranty. I'm not saying money is all that matters but understand not wanting to walk away from $9-10M a year but that decision might be a lot easier if he's looking at 1/3rd of that.

And saying all that I still got him sitting on my IR on a few FFPC leagues. Assumed I'd cut him but he should land somewhere like NE, I might just hold on because I still think, especially in that format, he has difference making ability if he's able to actually remain on the field.

He's on the waiver wire in one of dynasty leagues and no one has bothered with picking him up.

Redskins coach Ron Rivera confirms Jordan Reed remains in the league's concussion protocol.

He's still recovering from a concussion suffered six months ago in a preseason game in Atlanta. Reed resumed practicing three weeks after his initial diagnosis but a recurrence of symptoms landed him on injured reserve about a month later. Washington hosted Panthers castoff Greg Olsen for a visit last week, suggesting the team is finally ready to move on from Reed, who has been concussed on at least seven occasions since debuting in 2013. The 29-year-old's release would free up $8.5 million in cap space.

He's probably looking to get a large injury settlement.  He is due $8.5 million in 2020 and $9 million in 2021.  Those amounts dwarf anything he'll get in future contracts if he chooses to keep playing.  Personally, I think teams should be able to cut any player in the offseason without penalty regardless of injury status.  The current system gives incentive to fake an injury.

Not a large one. These are from reliable Redskin beat reporters in recent days:

Quote

JP Finlay . @JPFinlayNBCS

Checked in with some folks about Jordan Reed’s status - Even in concussion protocol Redskins can release him. Reed could be eligible for CBA's injury protection benefit of $1.2M if he isn't cleared to play in 2020. His contract also might contain some injury guarantees.

Quote

John Keim . @john_keim . Feb 17

This is true. They do not have to reach an injury settlement with him. If released, he's then entitled to the injury protection benefit. If Reed wants to retire, makes sense to wait until after collecting this benefit to announce.

Quote

John Keim . @john_keim . Feb 17

One more note: Yes, he can file a grievance but b/c it's a 2019 injury (he was paid) and b/c his 2020 contract isn't guaranteed, not entitled to 1.2. if cut, might be entitled to extended inj protection in 2021 (last yr of deal). would be around 600K. cutting b4 cleared triggers

The move comes after seven seasons, and sadly Reed's seventh documented concussion as a pro. This one cost him all of 2019. He cleared the protocol just this week. The move clears $8.5 million in cap space while leaving behind only $1.8 million in dead money. Still five months shy of his 30th birthday, Reed was on an early-career trajectory to be one of the best tight ends of the decade, but even beyond the head issues, injuries have absolutely wrecked his career. He has never appeared in more than 14 games, and has cleared 12 just twice in seven years. Reed seems committed to continuing his career, but he figures to give retirement consideration. It is an absolute shame for a player whose talent was never in question.

ESPN's John Keim confirms free agent TE Jordan Reed is expected to continue playing career following his release from the Redskins.

Keim's report is via a "source close to Reed." Reed will be returning from his seventh documented concussion as a pro. He has appeared in just 65-of-112 possible career games, good for 58 percent. He turns 30 on July 3. The easy take from afar is that Reed should hang 'em up, but he knows his body better than anyone else. Teams will surely be willing to bet on his talent.
