This NFL offseason has been nothing short of spectacular and has left an abundance of people with their mouths wide open. The biggest shock came when the Packers agreed to a 4-year $200 million extension with QB Aaron Rodgers. Even the Broncos went all-in as they acquired Russell Wilson from Seattle in exchange for multiple first-round picks.

On a less dramatic note, the Detriot Lions re-signed wide receiver, Josh Reynolds. The Lions signed Reynolds to a two-year contract worth a max value of $12 million, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported.

“They came in with full trust in me and kind of let me do my thing” – Josh Reynolds couldn’t be happier after re-signing with Detriot

Josh Reynolds was selected 117th overall by the Los Angeles Rams in the 2017 draft. After 3 seasons with the Rams that included a Super Bowl appearance in 2019, the 27-year old receiver was signed a one-year contract with the Tennessee Titans. Reynolds landed with Detroit for seven games in 2021 after being cut by the Tennessee Titans in the middle of the season. 

After bouncing around from one team to another, Reynolds has finally found his home with the Lions. “They came in with full trust in me and kind of let me do my thing,” Reynolds said Wednesday, via MLive. “That just showed how much trust they had in me. That was a big reason why I was also looking forward to getting this deal done with them.

“For me, it was an easy decision. As long as we were able to kind of get all the little details right, I was more than willing to come back. I just felt like this was the best move and, honestly, I love the decision I made. Just happy to be here. It feels like home, just even being back in the building. I can’t really give you the words I’m trying to get out right now, but I can just tell you, I’m more than happy to be here, man, and I’m ready for this season.”

In Detriot, Reynolds was reunited with former Rams’ teammate, QB Jared Goff. It took a few weeks for Reynolds to find his footing, but he showed rapport with Goff down the stretch. In his final six games with Detroit, he generated 306 yards and two TDs on 19 catches. The Lions entered the offseason needing to upgrade the receiver position.

After re-signing Reynolds, looks like the Lions aren’t going to shell out any more money in the free agency. But they surely will be looking for some great WRs in the draft to add to their arsenal.
