Jordan M. Reed (born July 3, 1990) is an American football tight end for the Washington Redskins of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for the University of Florida. He was selected by the Redskins in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft. His older brother, David Reed, is a wide receiver for the Baltimore Ravens.
A native of New London, Connecticut, Reed attended New London High School. As a junior, he completed 122 of 222 passes for 1,706 yards and 28 touchdown. He threw only two interceptions, and also rushed for 370 yards and eight touchdowns. He led New London to an undefeated regular season in 2007, and was a finalist for the 2008 Joe Montana High School Quarterback of the Year. Considered a four-star recruit by Rivals.com, he was rated the 10th best dual-threat quarterback in the nation.
Reed accepted an athletic scholarship to attend the University of Florida, where he played for coach Urban Meyer and coach Will Muschamp's Florida Gators football teams from 2009 to 2012. Originally recruited as a quarterback, he did not appear in any games and was redshirted as a true freshman in 2009. Thereafter, he shifted to the tight end position. Reed finished his three-season college career with 78 receptions for 938 yards and six touchdowns. He decided to forgo his final season of college eligibility, and enter the NFL Draft after the 2012 season.
