Former Virginia Tech defensive end Justus Reed signs with the Tennessee Titans

Defensive end Justus Reed transferred to Virginia Tech last offseason to play his final collegiate season and receive more exposure from NFL scouts. It was a good year for Reed, who registered 28 tackles, including nine for loss and 6.5 sacks.

While Reed went undrafted in the 2021 NFL draft, he did sign as an undrafted free agent with the Tennessee Titans. Tennessee selected Virginia Tech cornerback Caleb Farley at No. 22 overall.

Reed, who played seven years of college football due to a variety of injuries, finally receives the chance to live his NFL dream.

Reed originally committed to Florida, where he spent three seasons before transferring to Youngstown State.
