Grady Jarrett’s new contract good news for Jarran Reed, not so much for the Seahawks

The one big contractual question looming over the Seahawks as the July 25 date for the beginning of training camp grows near is the status of middle linebacker Bobby Wagner.

Wagner is entering the final year of his contract and has made it clear he wants a new deal before the season that will make him the highest-paid inside linebacker in the NFL, meaning more than the $17 million a year of C.J. Mosley of the New York Jets.

But standing right behind Wagner in hopes of a new deal is defensive tackle Jarran Reed, who also is entering the final year of his contract, a four-year rookie deal signed in 2016 after he was drafted in the second round out of Alabama that is worth a total of $4.
