D.J. Reed, in his first appearance for the Seahawks, gets revenge on his former team. Just into the red zone late in the first quarter, Reed intercepted Jimmy Garoppolo's pass intended for George Kittle. He was pulled down after a 1-yard return, and the defense wheeled away to celebrate with a game of hot potato at the 50-yard line.
Reed was a 2018 5th Round draft pick by the 49ers. He appeared in 31 games over his first two seasons and recorded 45 tackles, two passes defensed, one sack, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery that he returned for a 5-hard score. In August 2020, he was waived over injury concerns, but Seattle picked him up a day later.
