Aggies In The NFL: Josh Reynolds Finding His Way In Detroit

Let's take a look at former Texas A&M football players in the NFL in Week 12

Former Texas A&M wide receiver Josh Reynolds is doing his best to give a boost to a  team that needs all the boost it can get.

Reynolds started the season with the Tennessee Titans, a free agent signing after spending the previous four seasons with the Rams organization.

Reynold's signing with the Titans came before the team traded for Julio Jones, so after that trade, he became buried on the depth chart. Reynolds was used sparingly in Week 8 and did not play in Week 9. Reynolds asked for and was granted his release on Nov. 9 when the Titans waived him.

The Rams showed interest in Reynolds again as they attempt to acquire talent for their 'all-in' season, but Detroit had a higher waiver position thanks to its 0-8 record at the time.

So Reynolds instead joined his old quarterback and teammate Jared Goff in Detroit, where he is beginning to mesh with his new club and produce results in tandem with Goff.

Reynolds and the Lions fell in Week 12 16-14 to the division rival Chicago Bears, but Reynolds finished the game with three catches for 70 yards and one touchdown.

While playing in College Station from 2014-2016, Reynolds played in 38 games and caught 164 passes for 2,788 yards and 30 touchdowns. He averaged 17.0 yards per catch and 73.4 yards per game.

In 2015, Reynolds tied the second-longest reception in A&M school history with a 95-yard catch and run against Vanderbilt, and posted at least one catch in every game he played, including three 100-yard games.

There are currently more than 30 former Aggies players either on active rosters in the NFL or on practice squads this year. Let's see how some performed for their respective clubs in Week 11:

DE Myles Garrett - The Cleveland Browns defensive standout recorded one sack, five tackles, one for loss, and two quarterback hits to go along with one pass defended in the Browns' 16-10 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
