ASHBURN, Va. (WUSA) - Washington Redskins rookie tight end Jordan Reed's team-record setting season has earned him All-Rookie honors; making Reed just the second Redskins tight end ever to receive the honor.
Reed, a third-round pick out of the University of Florida, played in nine games this season - amassing 499 yards on 45 catches and setting team records in both categories. The yardage total also ranked second among rookie tight-ends while his receptions were tied for seventh among all league rookies. The former Gator also set the team record for receiving yards by a rookie tight end in a single game when he hauled in nine catches for 134 yards in a week seven win over the Bears.
Reed joins 31 other Redskins seleced for the All-Rookie since 1975. Only one other tight end has earned the honor - Chris Cooley in 2004.
