Former Pro Bowl TE Jordan Reed is retiring, sources say. A 2013 3rd-round pick by the Washington Football Team, Reed emerged as one of the game’s best receiving TEs before battling injuries. His improbable comeback with #49ers last season allowed him to walk away with no regrets.
Reed battled injuries but was one of the league's best when healthy. He put up 3,602 yards and 28 touchdowns between his time in Washington and last year with the 49ers.
They referred to him as an RB but Cordarrelle Patterson's main contributions have come on special teams as a returner. It will be interesting to see how Atlanta plans to use the 30-year old this season. He's not currently on the fantasy radar aside from leagues with return points.
