Seattle Seahawks Defensive tackle Jarran Reed has been suspended for the first six games for the upcoming season according to the team and the NFL via a prelease.
Statement From An NFL Spokesperson:
Jarran Reed of the Seattle Seahawks has been suspended without pay for the first six games of the 2019 regular season for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy.
Reed is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games. Reed will be eligible to return to the Seahawks’ active roster on Monday, October 14, following the team’s October 13 game at Cleveland.
Statement From A Seahawks Spokesperson:
We are aware of the situation involving Jarran Reed and have followed league and law enforcement protocol since the alleged incident in April of 2017. While was not charged or arrested regarding the incident, he was found to have violated the NFL Player Personnel conduct Policy.
Reed took to Twitter and apologized for his transgressions.
Reed was a second-round pick out of Alabama in the 2016 draft and is eligible for a contract extension having played three years in the league. The suspension will cost him approximately $394,153, which is six game checks from his $1,116,768 base salary. Reed is coming off a career-best 10.5 sacks and 50 tackles in 2018. Reed’s 10.5 sacks were tied for fourth among defensive tackles last season. With Frank Clark gone to Kansas City via trade, the Seahawks will miss Reeds badly.
