Rams sign offensive lineman Reynolds to 2 year deal
MARYLAND HEIGHTS, MO. (KTVI) – The first week of free agency was very busy for the St. Louis Rams. They swapped starting quarterbacks with the Philadelphia Eagles, re-signed Lance Kendricks, unofficially resigned Kenny Britt and added another former first round draft pick to their defensive line. The second week however, has slowed down for the Rams as they finalized the new contract for Britt.
Now, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the team has signed Garrett Reynolds to a 2-year/$2.2 million contract. The contract includes incentives that make the deal worth up to $4.2 million.
Reynolds played last year for the Detroit Lions and saw time on the right side of the line, spending time at guard and tackle. Before signing a one year contract with the Lions last summer and playing 10 games for them, Reynolds was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in 2009. The third-rounder made 23 starts in 42 games for the Falcons, where he also saw time at both guard and tackle.
This is the first offensive lineman signing for a Rams’ team that had only 10 offensive lineman before bringing Reynolds to the roster. Two of those 10 linemen have experience as a starter: Greg Robinson and Rodger Saffold.
