Commanders could sign Josh Reynolds

The Washington Commanders haven't added to their wide receiver room as yet. This position group market hasn't been as robust as some projections beforehand, which has everything to do with how strong the 2024 NFL Draft class appears.

This is something the Commanders will likely take advantage of with one of their high-end picks. One could argue they need two or three decent options to put alongside Terry McLaurin and Jahan Dotson. Something that would give offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury an abundance of options in the passing game and make things easier for Washington's new rookie quarterback - whoever that might be.

Adding a big-bodied receiver would add a different dynamic to the Commanders' offense as it stands. Someone like Josh Reynolds could be a possible option if those in power feel like his 6-foot-3 skill set can be depended upon within Kingsbury's expansive system.

Reynolds had some difficulties with drops last season, which is a concern. He did bring in 62.5 percent of his targets for 608 receiving yards and five touchdowns for the Detroit Lions, which is solid if not spectacular production from the former fourth-round selection out of Texas A&M.

Again, there is an element of risk attached, but almost every available veteran at this stage of free agency comes with baggage. Reynolds has more going for him than most receivers still sitting on the market, it's whether the Commanders view him as a genuine option rather than taking their chances on a draft prospect or two that represents the biggest stumbling block.
