Former Aggies Receiver Josh Reynolds Lands Extension From Lions

Former Texas A&M receiver Josh Reynolds earned a payday from the Detroit Lions

Josh Reynolds never became a household pass-catcher for Los Angeles Rams or Tennessee Titans. Maybe that will change with the Detroit Lions

The former Texas A&M receiver agreed to terms on a two-year deal worth up to $12 million Tuesday morning. The news was first reported by his agency, Apex Sports Group.


Reynolds, 27, was a fourth-round draft pick by the Rams in 2017. As the team's No. 4 weapon, the former Aggie was best utilized for his tracking instincts downfield, averaging over 11 yards per catch in three of his four seasons in Los Angeles. 

Last season, Reynolds agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Titans to become the team's No. 3 receiver. He played in five games and only recorded 10 catches for 90 yards before asking to be released midseason. 

Claimed off waivers by the Lions, Reynolds became the No. 2 receiver for former Rams' quarterback Jared Goff to close out the season. He tallied 19 catches for 306 yards and scored a pair of touchdowns. Reynolds also averaged a career-best 16.1 yards per reception.
