2015 Redskins Season In Review: Tight Ends

Take a quick look back at the top Redskins 2015 season storylines from the tight end position, courtesy of Redskins Public Relations.

By the time the Redskins clinched the NFC East title in Week 16, teammates, coaches, fans, journalists and observers alike had all start to run out of adjectives to describe the play of Jordan Reed in 2015.

The third-year tight end posted one of the finest seasons by a tight end in team history, setting franchise marks by a tight end in receptions (87) and receiving yards (952) and coming within one touchdown (11) of the team record for receiving touchdowns (12).

Reed’s rapid growth into one of the league’s elite pass-catching tight ends is remarkable when underscored by the fact that he began his college career at the University of Florida as a quarterback. He recorded four multi-touchdown games, tied with Redskins legend Jerry Smith for most by a tight end in a single season, helping the Redskins to a 4-0 record in those contests.

Beyond his natural ability as a route runner and pass catcher, Reed focused on becoming a more complete tight end in 2015. He has relied upon the expertise of Tight Ends Coach Wes Phillips, who previously tutored Jason Witten during his time coaching in Dallas.

Phillips helped mold and mentor a group that lost two-thirds of its projected group early in the preseason when long-time contributors Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen suffered season-ending injuries in August.

The Redskins added 11-year veteran Alex Smith, who played for Gruden in Cincinnati, as a free agent late in the season. The team also signed promising prospect Marcel Jensen away from the Bills’ practice squad in December. Tackle Tom Compton also frequently entered games as the team’s eligible third tight end.
