Former Ravens wide receiver and record-setting Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds will reportedly sign with the Seattle Seahawks, giving the former Heisman Trophy finalist a third shot at cracking an NFL roster.
Reynolds' signing was reported by NFL Network and the Seattle Times.
Reynolds was a sixth-round draft pick by the Ravens in 2016 and a fan favorite after a collegiate career in Annapolis in which he set an NCAA Division I record with 88 rushing touchdowns and finished fifth in the Heisman Trophy voting in 2015. Reynolds' total of 4,559 career rushing yards is the most in NCAA history for a quarterback.
He struggled to make the conversion from collegiate quarterback to NFL receiver and return specialist with the Ravens. He was cut after his rookie training camp and re-signed to the Ravens practice squad. Reynolds was activated to the 53-man roster before the final game of his rookie season but did not play.
Last year, Reynolds again came to training camp on the roster bubble and showed promise with a
46-yard punt return against the Washington Redskins
in the preseason opener. But he was used sparingly as a wide receiver and didn't make any catches during preseason games. He failed to make the 53-man roster out of training camp.
Reynolds remained in the Navy Reserve during his time with the Ravens, fulfilling his Naval Academy obligations at Fort Meade.
Reynolds joined the Redskins' practice squad last November but was not re-signed after the season.
