Cleveland Browns (Photo: James Nielsen, USA TODAY Sports)After missing the entire 2016 season with a torn ACL, Jordan Reed has returned to action with the Cleveland Browns this season.
He had been sidelined by a hamstring injury, and the team announced Thursday that they have agreed on a trade with the Washington Redskins to send Reed to Cleveland for a 2018 first-rounder and a 2019 first- round pick.
The move to send a first rounder to Cleveland comes a week after the Browns signed veteran guard/tackle Joe Thomas, who was waived earlier in the week.
Thomas, a three-time Pro Bowler, will be reunited with veteran guard Tashaun Gipson, who signed with the Browns on Wednesday.
The deal will send the Browns their second first- or second-round draft picks in the 2018 and 2019 drafts, with the first- and second-rounder also in the 2020 draft.
Reed, who turns 30 in October, had missed all of last season with the torn ACL and missed the entire season with an injury that forced him to miss the second half of the 2016 season.
Cleveland had to replace him on the depth chart, and Reed started four games.
He finished the season with five catches for 43 yards and one touchdown.
The Browns signed Reed, who has a career-high three seasons of over 1,000 receiving yards, in the offseason.
He spent most of the first two seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, but he had two years of service time and was released in the 2015 offseason.
