Reynolds goes to Tennessee | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

The Titans have agreed to a 1-year deal with WR Josh Reynolds, according to Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com. The 26-year-old wideout posted career highs in targets (81), receptions (52) and receiving yards (618) with last year's Rams. His 11.9 yards per catch dipped vs. the previous 2 seasons, however. In Tennessee, Reynolds has a shot to replace Corey Davis opposite A.J. Brown, in a pass-catching corps that also shed Adam Humphries and TE Jonnu Smith this offseason. It's a nice landing spot for opportunity. We'll see what else the Titans add this spring.

Titans HC Mike Vrabel thinks WR Josh Reynolds is capable of playing both "inside and outside." Reynolds played 74% of his snaps on the outside in each of the past 2 seasons with the Rams, but positional versatility can only help his cause in Tennessee. The Titans lost a whopping 192 targets from last year with the departures of Corey Davis, Adam Humphries and Jonnu Smith, so there's plenty of opportunity for Reynolds to carve out a big role in 2021.

Rams HC Sean McVay said Tuesday that the trade of WR Brandin Cook was “a big vote of confidence” for WR Josh Reynolds. “We just feel he’s a capable starting receiver," McVay added. Reynolds has spent the majority of his first 3 NFL seasons as Los Angeles' #4 WR. But he's been elevated due to injuries to the Rams' other WRs on occasion and fared decently. Reynolds has played 60+% of the offensive snaps in 14 career games and averaged 5.6 targets, 2.9 catches, 38.5 yards and .5 TDs in those outings. Cooks leaves behind an average of 6.3 targets per game over the last 2 seasons, creating a significant opportunity for Reynolds.

Rams WR Josh Reynolds revealed Monday that he had surgery after the season to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder. The injury occurred on a punt return in the 4th quarter of L.A.'s playoff loss to the Saints. He's spent most of the offseason rehabbing but is able to participate in this week's OTAs. "I can’t really press block with all the special teams stuff. Other than that, it’s healed," Reynolds said. "I’ll be about 100 percent (by training camp.)" Reynolds caught just 11 balls as a rookie, buried behind Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Sammy Watkins on the depth chart. He'll again be the #4 WR this season, with Brandin Cooks stepping into Watkins' role. Reynolds remains a dynasty "hold" but will need an injury to 1 of the Rams' top 3 WRs to have a shot at 2018 fantasy value.

The Rams selected Texas A&M WR Josh Reynolds in the 4th round of the 2017 NFL Draft. After spending 2013 at Tyler Junior College, Reynolds arrived at A&M and immediately set the school’s single-season TD record with 13 TDs. He posted a 51-907-5 line in 2015 and a career-best 61-1,039-12 this past year. Reynolds left school with a 17.0 yards-per-catch average and projects as a downfield weapon at the next level. He’s a 6’3, 194-pounder with 4.5 speed and a 37-inch vertical. Reynolds joins 3rd-rounder Cooper Kupp in Los Angeles’ unsettled WR corps.
