Can Titans tap into wide receiver Josh Reynolds’ deep-threat ability?

By John Glennon

When he entered the NFL in 2017, Titans receiver Josh Reynolds carried the profile of a big-play threat waiting to happen.

A fourth-round draft pick of the Los Angeles Rams, the 6-3, 196-pound Reynolds had averaged 17 yards per catch in three seasons at Texas A&M, totaling 30 touchdowns and almost 2,800 yards during that stretch.

NFL analysts praised his ability to create separation, track the football over his shoulder and catch off-target passes as advantages for a receiver likely to get plenty of downfield looks.

But whether it was due to the talent above him on the depth chart, the Rams’ offensive scheme or the team’s overall struggles in the passing game, Reynolds never became the kind of consistent downfield threat he was in college.

In 64 games he played over four seasons with the Rams, Reynolds was targeted just 34 times with throws of 20-plus yards, per Pro Football Focus. He caught nine of those passes, reaching the end zone three times.

That’s one of the reasons Reynolds sounds so excited about the opportunity presented with the Titans, where he hopes the team’s play-action attack, the strong arm of quarterback Ryan Tannehill and the ability to line up opposite A.J. Brown will present more chances for him to make big plays.
