A day after the Rams added receiver DeSean Jackson, former LA wideout Josh Reynolds is reportedly set to join the Tennessee Titans. Reynold is signing a one-year contract with the Titans, who have lost number two receiver Corey Davis and number one tight end Jonnu Smith this offseason. As of today, Reynolds is the second-most experienced and productive receiver or tight end in Tennessee, after A.J. Brown.
Will he become Ryan Tannehill’s number two option?
Reynolds, 26, was called upon to take on a larger role in the offense in 2020, catching 52 passes for 618 yards and two touchdowns on 81 targets. Reynolds’ previous career-highs were 53 targets, 29 receptions, and 402 yards. The 6’3, 196 lb receiver served as LA’s “deep threat” last season, but he also had three drops and two fumbles, while never proving to be consistently threatening. However, he nevertheless played an important role on the Rams and he played in 72% of the snaps as the only big target on the offense.
Reynolds reportedly turned down an opportunity to play with Patrick Mahomes.

The wide receiver had a few great options including the Kansas City Chiefs, but he chose to go play for the Titans.
