When things were going off the rails for him with the Tennessee Titans in 2021 and he was granted his release, Josh Reynolds was an ideal fit for the Detroit Lions. He had history with Jared Goff, and the Lions surely needed to inject talent into the wide receiver depth chart.

Reynolds averaged 16.1 yards per catch over the rest of that season for the Lions, and he was signed to a two-year deal. He was a solid piece of the offense in 2022, and he followed with 608 yards in 2023.

One rough game does not write erase what Reynolds has done in his time with the Lions thus far. But his two critical drops in the NFC Championship Game loss to the 49ers are the last thing that happened, so that lingers for Lions' fans as he now heads into free agency.

Reynolds is a clear culture fit with the Lions, and we know how much that matters to Brad Holmes and Dan Campbell. But he would be right to see what else might be out there on the market, and as Morgan Cannon of Pride of Detroit suggested it'd be hard to blame him if he can get a more lucrative deal from another team. Not to mention the possibility of a larger role on another team, commensurate with the prospect of that better pay day.

Reynolds might find more money and a bigger role elsewhere. That's the bottom line, and here are some teams who could be a nice fit for him on those fronts if re-signing with the Lions does not happen.
