Lions to Sign OL Garrett Reynolds

The Lions are signing free agent offensive lineman Garrett Reynolds who was released by the Falcons back in February. Reynolds started 10 games for Atlanta in 2013. However, the 26-year-old lost his starting job at right guard late in the 2013 season.

The terms of the agreement aren’t known as of now, but a minimum salary pact seems likely. The Lions roster is currently at max capacity with 90 players, so once the signing is complete, expect a release to be made to compensate for Reynolds being brought aboard.

Last season Garrett finished with a +3.0 rating, allowing 4 sacks, 3 hits and 22 hurries. The Lions have a fairly solid offensive line as it is, however Reynolds could serve as a high quality backup, and fill a good role if an injury were to take place.
