Josh Reynolds will now surely not be back with the Detroit Lions, and these five teams make sense for him.

5. New York Giants

Alongside their general issue under center, the Giants have tried a lot of options at wide receiver and not found much consistency. Signing Isaiah McKenzie is hardly enough to address the issue this offseason, though a top-end wide receiver prospect could be on the radar with the No. 6 overall pick in next month's draft.

If nothing else, Reynolds would be a solid veteran for the Giants to add to their wide receiver room. He can be an downfield threat for whoever is playing quarterback, and he is a willing blocker. As noted by Desmond Novack of GMEN HQ, his overall Pro Football Focus grade last season (70.1) was better than most people think (and in the same range as Calvin Ridley, Tee Higgins and Brandin Cooks).

4. Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens won't be bringing Odell Beckham Jr. back, and even with the signing of Derrick Henry their offensive identity shifted to not be quite so ground-and-pound under offensive coordinator Todd Monken last year. It's safe to say their current wide receiver depth chart, this side of Zay Flowers, is lacking a bit (Rashod Bateman, Nelson Agholor).

With size (6-foot-3), downfield ability (15.2 yards per catch last season) and as a reliable chain mover (57 of 68 catches going for first downs over the last two seasons), not to mention at a bargain rate compared to their overpay of Beckham last offseason, Baltimore should have interest in Reynolds now if they didn't already.
