Report: Jarran Reed's refusal to restructure contract led to release from Seahawks

Jarran Reed's refusal to restructure his contract led to his release by the Seattle Seahawks, according to ESPN's Brady Henderson. 

The veteran defensive tackle was slated to make almost $9 million with the Seahawks in 2021. His release saved Seattle nearly $9 million in cap space.

The Seahawks initially tried to trade Reed, but were unsuccessful, per Henderson. He has since signed a one-year deal worth up to $7 million with the Kansas City Chiefs.   

Reed appeared in all 16 games last season, recordings 6.5 sacks, one forced fumble, 38 tackles and 14 quarterback hits.
