Reynolds was added to Seattle's active roster Tuesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Reynolds was added to the 53-man roster in the wake of Doug Baldwin (knee)'s injury. The 23-year-old hasn't suited up for a regular-season game since being picked by Baltimore in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, but he could be in line for limited offensive snaps in the near future. Reynolds will compete for targets behind Tyler Lockett, Brandon Marshall and Jaron Brown.
The Seahawks signed Reynolds to their practice squad, Bob Condotta reports. Reynolds was a cut-down day victim for the third straight year. He had high points during minicamp, which put him on Seattle's radar to make the team, but that didn't translate over to preseason games. The team is carrying only five wideouts on its final roster, so any serious injuries will force them to lift Reynolds to the active roster.
Head coach Pete Carroll said Reynolds "lit it up" during Tuesday's mandatory minicamp. Reynolds was able to get more looks during practice since top wideout Doug Baldwin was given a day of rest. The 23-year-old receiver hasn't suited up for a game since being picked by Baltimore in the sixth round of the 2016 draft. It was the first day of minicamp, so it's too early to make predictions on where Reynolds could fit in, but Carroll said he'll be given a good shot. With Baldwin, Tyler Lockett, Brandon Marshall and Jaron Brown looking like locks for the top spots, however, it's likely Reynolds won't rise past a depth role.
Reynolds was released by the Ravens as part of roster cuts Friday. Despite a year on the Ravens' practice squad in 2016, Reynolds failed to make enough of an impact during the preseason to earn a roster spot in his second professional season. Reynolds could be a practice squad candidate again with Baltimore in 2017.
Reynolds remains a long shot to make the Ravens' 53-man roster, but he showed major improvements both as a returner and as a receiver during minicamp, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports. The former Navy quarterback struggled to pick up on the nuances of his new positions last summer, but Zrebiec notes that he looked faster, smoother, and more confident overall last week. He showed improved hands in the passing game and had a more natural feel in the return game as well. With Baltimore's recent addition of Jeremy Maclin, an already crowded receiving group got even more jam-packed. With that, Reynolds will likely need to shine on special teams in order to break camp with the active roster.
