Seahawks Activate CB D.J. Reed & TE Colby Parkinson, Promote Two

The Seattle Seahawks announced Saturday that they’ve activated CB D.J. Reed and TE Colby Parkinson from the non-football injury list and promoted DE Stephen Sullivan and CB Jayson Stanley to their active roster.

Sullivan and Stanley will revert back to the Seahawks’ practice squad on Monday without having to clear waivers.

Reed, 23, was a fifth-round pick out of Kansas State by the 49ers in 2018. He’s entering the third year of his four-year, $2,771,371 contract and stands to make a base salary of $750,000 for the 2020 season. 

The 49ers waived him with a non-football injury designation and he was later claimed off waivers by the Seahawks. 

In 2019, Reed appeared in all 16 games for the 49ers and recorded seven tackles, one forced fumble, and two pass deflections.

Parkinson, 21, was a two-year starter at Stanford and earned second-team All-Pac 12 honors last season. The Seahawks selected him with the No. 133 pick in this year’s draft. 

Parkinson signed a four-year, $3,965,440 rookie contract with the Seahawks that includes a $670,440 signing bonus.

During his three-year college career, Parkinson recorded 87 receptions for 1,171 yards receiving (13.5 YPC) and 12 touchdowns.
