Below Deck Mediterranean season 7 has bored viewers compared to previous seasons of the show. At least former Patriots defensive tackle and Super Bowl champion Dominique Easley and former Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed are showing up as charter guests to spice up the final couple episodes, before the end of the finale episode and following reunion. Here’s everything Bravo viewers need to know about who’s Jordan Reed on Below Deck Med.
Retired NFL Star Jordan Reed Played For Washington Redskins & San Francisco 49ers Before Being Charter Guest on Below Deck Med
Jordan Reed grew up in New Britain, Connecticut, before getting a full-ride scholarship to play college football with the University of Florida’s Gators, where he played with fellow Below Deck Med charter guest Dominique. The super fast tight end with serious handles was drafted in 2013 in the third round by the Washington Redskins.
He developed into “one of the most dangerous tight ends in the NFL” early in his career and was great at getting touchdowns. The star athlete played in the Pro Bowl in 2016. Jordan Reed has some great years playing for the Redskins, but suffered seven concussions over his career with the team, and was eventually released by the team in 2019. In 2016, Jordan signed a $50 million contract extensions with the Redskins.
He signed with the San Francisco 49ers and made an immediate impact, getting two touchdowns in a game. Unfortunately he got injured midway in the season and retired in the spring of 2021 after eight seasons in the NFL.

As a player he weighed 242 pounds and is six feet two inches tall. Chef Dave White better prepare a lot of his best food dishes for these former NFL stars.
On the show, Jordan loses a gold chain necklace in the Mediterranean sea while tubing. Apparently the gold chain necklace is worth as much as a “house”, or at least six figures. Jordan and other charter guests wanted the crew to go scuba diving to find it. However, Captain Sandy said it would be like looking for a needle in a haystack (more like 10,000 haystacks).
Charter Guest Jordan Reed’s Instagram, Twitter, Entrepreneur Work & More
Since retiring from the NFL, Jordan Reed works as an entrepreneur. He invested his money in companies and industries he believes in. He’s collaborated with longtime friend Dominique Easley investing in the medicinal and recreational cannabis industry. Jordan also invested his money in retail, licensing and real estate. He’s also the co-founder of BPH Legacy Partners investment company, according to his LinkedIn.
Jordan Reed’s Instagram doesn’t include many posts, and all of them are pictures of him playing football. He’s also on Twitter.
