The Detroit Lions have signed wide receiver Josh Reynolds to a two-year deal. The contract is reportedly worth a maximum of $12 million. He was previously not under contract with the Lions for the 2022 NFL season.
The NFL Network’s Mike Garofolo reported the news via Twitter on Tuesday.
It’s a two-year deal for WR Josh Reynolds with a max value of $12 million, source says. Reynolds played well down the stretch for the #Lions, who liked his leadership and his relationship with Jared Goff. Detroit wanted this done before free agency. The sides got there. https://t.co/7twJGCI313

After being drafted in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Los Angeles Rams, the former Texas A&M receiver played in L.A. for 64 games. He, then, signed with the Titans on a one-year deal, playing in just five games before being waived. The Lions claimed Reynolds on waivers for the remainder of the 2021 season.
During his stint with Detroit, he has played in seven games, starting five of them. Reynolds and Goff made connections late in the season, earning him 19 receptions for 306 yards and two touchdowns. His average yards per catch were the highest of his career during that span, at 16.1.
