Jordan Reed just got a big paycheck coming with $50 million after Washington Redskins signed him up for a 5-year contract extension.
At the top of his game, Reed made 87 passes for 952 yards and 11 touchdowns, ESPN reports.
“It means a lot that the Redskins invested that kind of money into me and think that highly of me as a player and as a person. That means a lot to me. I’m going to show them that they made a good investment, and I’m going to prove them right in making me one of the highest-paid [tight ends],” Reed said to ESPN.

After the contract extension and $50 million dollars, Reed has definitely been given a huge reward after his successful season. However, whether Reed can continue this winning streak is still uncertain.
With a considerable list of past injuries, Yahoo Sports reports that Reed has already suffered at least 4 concussions, right knee, hamstring and ankle injuries while playing for the University of Florida and a combination of MCL sprain, ankle injury and concussion during Washington Redskins matches.
Due to injuries, Reed has already missed 14 games in three seasons as recounted by NBC Sports. However, it didn’t keep Reed from bouncing back and playing one of the best seasons in his career.
Jordan Reed started playing football for the University of Florida before being drafted by the Washington Redskins in 2013. In 2015, Reed experienced a career breakthrough with 11 receptions and 2 touchdowns in a single game contributing to his career high of 11 touchdowns.
“Honestly, I don’t want to be anywhere else than here. I love it here. I love playing for the Redskins. I love all my coaches and all my teammates. I love this area, man. They gave me that deal, and I took it. It was a solid deal, and I’m just happy to be a Redskin,” Reed said in an ESPN report.
