The contract details have now been released and it is quite a deal for the Lions.
As you can see below, via Over The Cap, Reynold’s cap hit in 2022 is just $2 million and it will just to $4 million in 2023.
Overall, it is a 2-year, $6 million deal, which is far better than the original report that said it was a $12 max value.
This is a move that seemed like a no-brainer heading into the offseason as Reynolds not only played well down the stretch for the Lions but he is also a great leader.
Nation, do you approve of this signing?
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
