The Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to terms with former Seattle Seahawks DT Jarran Reed.
The move was a bit of a surprise during what has been a relatively quiet free agency period for the Chiefs. Defensive tackle wasn’t seen as a big need given that the team already has an All-Pro at the spot in Chris Jones. At the same time, this is the type of move that could allow the team some flexibility. After all, you can never have too many good players at any given position, but especially in the trenches.
So what does Reed’s signing indicate, specifically for the Chiefs’ top defensive tackle on the roster? Well, Jones is already saying that it has the potential to be, “something special.” Let’s discuss what exactly it means for Jones during the 2021 NFL season.
