Despite missing seven games in 2013, Reed, 23, finished the season with 45 receptions for 499 yards, which are both Redskins’ single-season rookie tight end records.
Reed led all tight ends in receptions from Weeks 6-11 with 32 receptions, eight more than any other NFL tight end.
In Week 7, Reed set career highs in receptions (nine) and receiving yards (134) in Washington’s 45-41 win against Chicago and caught his second career touchdown.
Reed’s 134 yards set the team record for receiving yards in a game by a rookie tight end.
The record was previously held by Redskins great Jerry Smith, who registered 78 receiving yards on six catches vs. Dallas on Nov. 28, 1965.
Reed’s 134 yards against the Bears were the fourth-most in a game by a Redskins tight end of any experience level.
Reed joins Chris Cooley (2004) as the only Redskins tight ends selected to the All-Rookie Team.
