Bears signed KR/RB Darius Reynaud.
After the Bears released KR Eric Weems last week, they needed a new one. While Reynaud's position is listed as running back, he won't be in the mix to see carries behind Matt Forte. Reynaud averaged 23.9 yards per kick return last season in nine games with the Titans and Jets. He'll compete for the job. Aug 18 - 9:18 PM

Free agent KR/RB Darius Reynaud worked out for the Bears on Wednesday.

Reynaud appeared in nine games between the Titans and Jets last season, notching one carry. He'd provide return depth for a team that parted ways with Devin Hester.
Apr 24 - 1:37 PM

Jets agreed to terms with RB/KR Darius Reynaud.

The veteran return man was released by the Titans in October. His addition is a sign that KR Josh Cribbs (shoulder) will be inactive for Week 14. Reynaud won't have a role on offense.

Titans released KR Darius Reynaud.

Reynaud was averaging just 23.7 yards per kickoff return and 7.5 yards per punt return. He also muffed a punt in Sunday's loss to the 49ers and kneeled down in the end zone for a safety in Week 1. Damian Williams can fill the return man role.

Titans re-signed KR Darius Reynaud to a one-year contract.

Filling in for an injured Marc Mariani last season, Reynaud was one of the top returners in the league. Reynaud averaged 13.2 yards on punts, and 23.4 yards on kicks. Mariani's fate is unclear as he recovers from a severe leg break.

The Titans are expected to open talks with free agent KR Darius Reynaud.

Reynaud is one the Titans' biggest priorities this offseason. Despite being limited to special teams, he shouldn't struggle to attract offers if he's allowed to hit the open market. NFL Network reported last week that the Browns could have interest in Reynaud as a replacement for Josh Cribbs.

RB Darius Reynaud is expected to be the Titans' primary return man this season.

Projected returner Marc Mariani broke his leg and is out for the season. That leaves Reynaud as the No. 4 running back and first option on both kickoff and punt returns. He managed just 5.7 yards per punt return and 18.4 yards per kick return back in 2010 with the Giants.

Titans signed WR Darius Reynaud to a reserve/future contract.

The return man went unsigned after being amongst the Giants' final cuts in September. After averaging just 5.7 yards on 23 punt returns and 18.4 yards on 21 kick returns in 2010, Reynaud will be facing an uphill battle to earn a roster spot in Titans camp.

Giants waived WR/PR Darius Reynaud.

Also waived by the Giants were DE Ayanga Okpokowuruk, C Jim Cordle and RB Charles Scott. Reynaud is probably lucky he made it this far after averaging just 5.7 yards on 23 punt returns and 18.4 yards on 21 kick returns last season. With rookie Jerrel Jernigan turning in a poor preseason, Domenik Hixon will open the season as the Giants' primary return man.

ESPN New York's Ohm Youngmisuk thinks it will be "tough" for WR/PR Darius Reynaud to crack the Giants' 53-man roster this summer.

"Tough" may be putting in mildly after the former Viking averaged just 5.7 yards on 23 punt returns and 18.4 yards on 21 kick returns for the Giants in 2010. The selection of Jerrel Jernigan in the third-round of April's draft likely sealed Reynaud's fate.

Giants re-signed restricted free agent WR/PR Darius Reynaud.

Reynaud, 26, appeared in nine games last season, averaging a horrific 5.7 yards per punt return and 18.4 on kickoffs. It's very difficult to imagine him beating out Domenik Hixon for either role so long as Hixon is healthy.
Thu, Mar 3, 2011 01:03:00 PM

Giants declared WR/PR Darius Reynaud, FB Madison Hedgecock, LB Gerris Wilkinson, C Shaun O'Hara, OT Will Beatty, OL Jamon Meredith, LB Alex Hall, and DT Linval Joseph inactive for Week 9.

Osi Umenyiora (knee) will start in a saliva-inducing matchup with Seahawks fill-in LT Breno Giacomini. Will Blackmon is expected to take over for Reynaud on returns. Bear Pascoe will replace Hedgecock as the lead blocker.
Sun, Nov 7, 2010 02:28:00 PM

Giants KR/PR Darius Reynaud (hamstring) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's Week 9 game.

So Reynaud's seemingly minor hamstring injury is a bigger deal than previously thought. Recently signed Will Blackmon is an option, though anyone the Giants throw out in the return game will be a better choice than Reynaud.
Sat, Nov 6, 2010 11:45:00 AM

Giants KR/PR Darius Reynaud is listed as questionable after pulling his hamstring in Friday's practice.

Will Blackmon will likely assume return duties if Reynaud can't play Sunday against Seattle, though it appears the injury is minor and Reynaud expects to play.
Fri, Nov 5, 2010 01:11:00 PM

Giants coach Tom Coughlin indicated that KR/PR Darius Reynaud will keep his job for the time being despite the signing of DB/KR Will Blackmon.

When asked if Reynaud still had a role on the team, Coughlin said, "sure." What role is that? "The role that he’s in right now." Coughlin said Reynaud's struggles are all on him, adding that he "hasn’t had an awful lot to work with." Despite the coach-speak, expect Blackmon to take over on returns shortly.
