Reed and the Falcons have come to terms on a revised contract which will keep the veteran defensive end in Atlanta for a fourth season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

The reduction of Reed's $5.44 million cap hit affords Atlanta some much needed financial wiggle room, with the Falcons entering the offseason as a bottom-10 team in terms of available cap space. The eight-year veteran out of Cal proved to be more than a rotation player in 2017, starting in 14-plus games for the first time since 2013 and accounting for the second-highest sack total of his career with four.

Reed produced 41 tackles and four sacks over 16 games in 2017.

EDGE Analysis

Reed yet again proved to be a force in run support, ultimately grading out as Pro Football Focus' 10th-highest-graded 4-3 defensive end in that area. However, he's also proving to be a low-floor, low-upside fantasy option due to his modest production in both the sack and tackle departments. Since it's hard to see that changing in 2018, Reed shouldn't be on the fantasy radar in most formats.

Reed (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday, Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Reed suffered the shoulder injury during Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers, and it could keep him sidelined for Week 2's matchup against the Raiders if he's unable to improve throughout the remainder of the week. According to Falcons coach Dan Quinn, Reed is expected to participate in conditioning off to the side during Wednesday's practice, but not be a factor in any team drills. An update regarding his status for Sunday's contest should become available later this week.
