Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed was off to an excellent start to his rookie season prior to being sidelined with a concussion.
He caught 45 passes for 499 yards and three touchdowns in nine games with one start.
The former University of Florida standout made a lasting impression on Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III.
"I think he's one of the most talented tight ends in the league," Griffin told FOX Sports. "He'll have an opportunity to show that. He's a guy that runs some of the best routes I've ever seen. Our offensive coordinator, Sean McVay, has said that you can't cover the guy. If (Reed) knows what he's doing, where he's going and he knows how he's trying to get there, you can't cover him.
"That's a good asset to have. I know last year we targeted him 11 times and he caught 11 balls in one game. That's what you want. You want to throw it to a guy that's going to catch it every time. You want to throw it to a guy who is going to secure that catch."
