Jordan Brand has added another great talent to their football roster as Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed is now part of the family.
Reed was one of five NFL players to join Jordan Brand this season, the others being Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate, Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis, Cleveland Browns rookie wide receiver Corey Coleman and Jacksonville Jaguars rookie safety Jalen Ramsey. They join a roster of high-caliber NFL athletes already endorsed by Jordan Brand, including Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant and Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas.
Here’s what Reed had to say about joining the Jumpman family:
“IT MEANS A LOT, MAN,” REED SAID. “GROWING UP LOOKING UP TO [MICHAEL JORDAN] AND THINGS LIKE THAT, NOW I’M SPONSORED BY HIS BRAND. THAT’S A BIG THING AND A BIG DEAL TO ME, AT LEAST.”
Reed has been a part of Jordan Brand since September when he signed right before the season opener.
