Another wide receiver hits waivers, should the Eagles be interested?
Amongst all the attention surrounding Odell Beckham Jr. and where he’ll play next, another wide receiver is about to hit waivers.
Per NFL Network’s Mike Garofolo, the Titans have released WR Josh Reynolds per his request — subjecting him to the waiver wire:
WR Josh Reynolds asked for, and was granted, his release from the #Titans today, source says. He signed as a free agent this offseason before they traded for Julio Jones. Reynolds, 26, heads to waivers, where claiming teams will owe him only $500k the rest of the way.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) November 9, 2021
Reynolds isn’t the flashiest player, but he would provide the Eagles with a big-body possession receiver that they’re lacking. The 5th-year receiver posted career-highs in both receptions (52) and yards (618) in 2020 for the Rams.
He’s caught just ten passes for 90 yards this season as other targets have become more prominent in Tennessee’s offense.
As of today, the Eagles sit 7th in the waiver wire order:
- Detroit Lions
- Houston Texans
- Miami Dolphins
- Jacksonville Jaguars
- New York Jets
- Washington Football Team
- Philadelphia Eagles
Reynolds was under the tutelage of current Eagles WR coach Aaron Moorehead at Texas A&M, where he racked up 164 receptions for 2788 yards and 30 TDs.
