Jarran Reed won’t get his coveted No. 90 back just yet.
One day after the Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle said he would be back in jersey No. 90 in 2020, general manager John Schneider said he hasn’t agreed to any number changes as of late.
“I think you’re buying into it, because I don’t remember approving that yet, so I don’t know,” Schneider told 710 ESPN Seattle.“I don’t know where that came from, but yesterday morning it was definitely, something was going on.”
Reed clapped back with a response of his own to Schneider’s comments. He has since deleted the post, as well as his Twitter account as of 1:30 p.m. on Thursday.
“I been stamped and approved nothing to approve,” Reed said in a now deleted post.
The alleged jersey number switch made headlines because Reed had sold the number to Jadeveon Clowney after he was traded to the Seahawks last season.
Following his original post, Reed tweeted out, “Look I understand everyone is looking for a sports story it’s not one stop with all the speculations. Y’all trying to make news out of a jersey number.”
Jersey number change or not, Clowney remains a free agent. Seattle has made it clear the door isn’t closed on his return…and it appears his No. 90 uniform is still on the market, as well.
