Reid was waived by the Redskins on Monday.
Looking for help at the wide receiver position, Washington opted to let go of Reid and promote wideout Robert Davis from the practice squad. Reid had been unable to work his way up the depth chart since his promotion to the active roster in mid-November.
Reid spent some time with the Lions earlier in the season, playing in one contest. He now joins a Washington defensive line that has had their fair share of injuries this season -- with the most recent being Arthur Jones (shoulder) landing on injured reserve this past weekend. Look for Reid to play a primarily reserve role behind Ziggy Hood and Stacy McGee on the depth chart.
Reid was released by the Lions on Wednesday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.
Reid was one of three defensive lineman let go by the Lions this week, joining George Johnson and Datone Jones. The 25-year-old appeared in one game with the Lions, logging 18 snaps on defense and recording no tackles.
The Lions signed Reid to a contract Wednesday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.
A 2014 fifth-round pick by the Lions, Reid previously played two seasons with the team before being waived during training camp last summer. He ended up appearing in seven games with the Chargers in 2016, logging five tackles and a sack. He'll provide the team with some additional depth at defensive tackle following Haloti Ngata's (biceps) placement on injured reserve, likely serving in a backup role behind A'Shawn Robinson and Akeem Spence.
