DT - KC
Week 7 Outlook
Current free-agent and former Seattle Seahawks DT Jarran Reed has reportedly signed a one-year, $7 million with the Kansas City Chiefs, per Ian Rapoport.
The 28-year old defensive tackle will head to Kansas City on a one-year deal worth up to $7 million with $5 million guaranteed. Reed will help strengthen the interior of the Chiefs' defensive line alongside All-Pro DT Chris Jones in 2021, having recorded 37 tackles, 6.5 sacks, a pass deflection, and a forced fumble across 16 games for the Seahawks in 2020. Expect the Chiefs to continue shoring up their defense through the draft and the remainder of free agency but the addition of Reed cannot be overstated. He will help stuff running lanes and bring coveted pressure up the middle to force opposing quarterbacks to abandon the pocket.
ESPN is reporting that Jarran Reed has agreed to re-sign with the Seahawks on a two-year deal worth $23M.
By bringing back Reed, the Seahawks are hoping that he can return to his 2018 form when he had 10.5 sacks. Last season the defensive tackle missed the first six games due to a suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. Reed had 27 combined tackles and two sacks last season for the Seahawks.
Jarran Reed ended Monday’s win over San Francisco with four total tackles, 1.5 sacks, and a forced fumble. In the second quarter, Reed sacked Jimmy Garoppolo, he fumbles the ball, and Jadeveon Clowney picks it up and runs for six.
Reed came up big for the Seahawks on Monday night. He currently has 12 total tackles, 1.5 sacks, and a forced fumble since Week 7. He can be left on waivers in most leagues.
Seahawks defensive tackle Jarran Reed has been suspended for the first six games of the NFL season for violating the league's personal conduct policy.
The suspension stems from a 2017 incident in which Reed was neither arrested nor charged. His absence will be a big blow to Seattle's defense after a monster 2018 season in which he recorded career highs in sacks (10.5), combined tackles (50), solo tackles (37), tackles for loss (12), and fumble recoveries (2). Reed finished second on the team in sacks behind only Frank Clark. Seattle faces, among others, the Rams, Steelers, Saints and Browns in the first six weeks of 2019.
DT Jarran Reed recorded five solo tackles, one tackle for loss, one sack, and recovered one fumble in the Seattle Seahawks' Week 6 victory over the Oakland Raiders.
Reed, the 14th-ranked defensive lineman to this point, played well yet again. He is a solid producer, and doesn't show any signs of slowing down.
