Seattle Seahawks ready to dump Jarran Reed

SEATTLE – The Seattle Seahawks are expected to move from starting defensive tackle Jarran Reed through a trade or release, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Reed signaled his apparent goodbye to the Seahawks on Thursday, writing on Twitter:

The 28-year-old Reed has one year and $ 8.5 million left on his contract, which is scheduled to count $ 13.5 million against the cap. The Seahawks would save $ 8.5 million against the cap if they traded or released Reed and incurred $ 5 million in dead money.

The Seahawks have to free up cap space to meet the cap once the recent deals they agreed to become official. They only have three picks in next month’s draft, a second, a fourth and a seventh round, after trading a fifth-round pick to the Las Vegas Raiders for guard Gabe Jackson.
