Reports from last night mentioned that the Seahawks were planning to move on from Reed, either by trade or release. 

Rapoport reported that Reed wanted a long-term deal from the Seahawks, but they were hoping to make a just a cap-related move. Talks broke down and ended up in a “bad spot” which is why they made the decision to part ways, according to Rapoport. 

Reed, 28, was selected in the second round out of Alabama in 2016. He played out the final year of his four-year contract worth $4,889,636 that included a signing bonus of $1,756,100 before agreeing to a two-year, $23 million deal with Seattle in March of last year.

According to, releasing Reed will free up $8,975,000 of available cap space while creating $5 million in dead money. 

In 2020, Reed appeared in 16 games for the Seahawks and recorded 38 tackles, six and a half sacks, a forced fumble and a pass defense.
