He later joined the Falcons in November of 2019 and returned to Atlanta on a futures contract after the season. The Falcons elected to cut him loose last offseason and caught on with of Jaguars’ practice squad in September of 2020.

Reynolds was on and off Jacksonville’s practice squad in 2020 before the Jaguars elected to waive him. He signed with the Lions in 2021 and stuck around on the practice squad after the preseason. Detroit promoted him to the active roster in December of last year.

In 2022, Reynolds has appeared in eight games and recorded 23 rushing attempts for 102 yards (4.4 YPC) and no touchdowns, to go along with nine receptions for 116 yards (12.9 YPC).
