Ex-WFT tight end Jordan Reed is retiring from the NFL because of lingering issues from multiple concussions suffered throughout his career.
“I was pretty sure I was going to keep playing; I was feeling good about where I was at,” Reed told ESPN. “But then I had some lingering effects and sought out professional help to get diagnosed. They told me it was not a good idea to keep playing. I agreed with them.”
Reed visited Orlando’s Plasticity Center in late winter for a brain scan. He said based on the results it was recommended he retire. Reed said it took him a while to make the decision.
