Officially official:

The Redskins have reportedly released TE Jordan Reed, a move that has been expected all week. Reed has been in the concussion protocol since taking a dirty hit from Falcons safety Keanu Neal during a preseason game. He missed the entire season for the first time in his career.

Reed was cleared from the NFL's concussion protocol yesterday, and now he will become a free agent for the first time in his career. Reports from yesterday say Reed plans to continue playing football. He now has suffered 7 confirmed concussions during his career. Any team that signs him will have to take his extensive injury history into consideration. Many people would like to see Reed retire for his long-term health, but he is able to make decisions for himself.

Good luck Jordan, and thanks for the memories.
