Defensive tackle Jarran Reed is joining the Kansas City Chiefs on a one-year deal worth up to $7 million, days after the Seattle Seahawks released him.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the news Sunday night.

Reed spent the first five years of his career with the Seahawks, who drafted him in the second round in 2016.

Reed, who reportedly wanted a long-term contract to remain in Seattle and couldn't reach an agreement with the team, appeared in all 16 games for the Seahawks in 2020 and played on 74 percent of the team's defensive snaps, per Football Reference. He had 6.5 sacks, 38 combined tackles and 14 quarterback hits, with one pass breakup and a forced fumble.

He was limited to 10 games in 2019 as he started the season on a six-game suspension for a violation of the league's personal conduct policy.

Mike Fisher of Cowboys Nation reported earlier Sunday that the Dallas Cowboys were "exploring" signing the 6'3", 300-pounder, and the Cincinnati Bengals were also interested, according to a report from All Bengals' James Rapien.

In an effort to replace him, the Seahawks signed defensive tackle Al Woods to a one-year deal Friday, per Rapoport.
