Rams released OL Garrett Reynolds with an injury settlement.

Reynolds started 11 games last year, but wasn't expected to be more than a swing option. His injury was never disclosed. Reynolds should draw interest when healthy.

Rams signed G/T Garrett Reynolds to a two-year, $2.2 million contract.

Reynolds appeared in 10 games (four starts) as a versatile reserve for Detroit last year. He can play both guard and right tackle, and knows OL coach Paul Boudreau's scheme from their time in Atlanta. Reynolds' signing should not impact whether the Rams bring back free agent RT Joe Barskdale.

Free agent G/T Garrett Reynolds is visiting the Rams on Wednesday.

Reynolds, 27, played for Rams OL coach Paul Boudreau in Atlanta from 2009-2011. He can play both guard spots and right tackle, but would be an extremely underwhelming signing if he were being inked as a starter.

Lions released OG Garrett Reynolds.

Reynolds was the Falcons' starting right guard last season. He got beat out by Rodney Austin for a backup interior line job in Detroit.

Lions signed G Garrett Reynolds.

Reynolds opened last season as the Falcons' starting right guard, but was benched following Week 12 and was released in February. The 27-year-old will fight for a reserve role behind starting guards Larry Warford and Rob Sims.

Free agent OG Garrett Reynolds visited with the Cowboys.

Reynolds, 26, was released by Atlanta in February. The Cowboys are his first visit since meeting with the Titans before the draft. Reynolds started 10 games last season, but was ineffective as both a pass and run blocker. In Dallas, he would provide veteran depth behind Ronald Leary and rookie Zack Martin.

Free agent OG Garrett Reynolds will visit the Titans on Wednesday.

It's Reynolds' first visit since the Falcons released him in February. Coming off a rough season where he was benched after 10 starts, Reynolds would be a depth signing for a team that has Andy Levitre and Chance Warmack at guard.

Falcons released RG Garrett Reynolds.

The move creates roughly $1.39 million in real savings, and $965,000 in cap space. Re-signed to a two-year, $2.613 million deal last March, Reynolds played 696 uneven snaps, struggling as a run blocker. He started 10 games before being benched in Week 12. Reynolds has made 42 career appearances, all with the Falcons. He'll likely be limited to minimum offers in the second wave of free agency, though he's now free to sign with any team.

The Falcons are expected to release RG Garrett Reynolds.

The move would save $1.33 million in cap space. Signed to a two-year deal in March, Reynolds appeared in 10 games before losing his starting job in Week 12. He graded out as the No. 31 guard by Pro Football Focus and will likely have to settle for a veteran-minimum contract this offseason.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution expects Garrett Reynolds to compete for the Falcons' right tackle job.

Lamar Holmes and Mike Johnson are the in-house favorites to replace Tyson Clabo, but Reynolds will be in the mix after the Falcons re-signed him to a two-year deal. Ideally, Reynolds will open this season in a swing role while providing quality depth. He missed the final nine games of 2012 due to injury.
Sat, Apr 6, 2013 10:28:00 PM

Falcons re-signed OG Garrett Reynolds to a two-year contract.

Reynolds started six games at right guard last year before an ailing back landed him on injured reserve in November. The four-year veteran will be in the mix to start in 2013, but will almost certainly face competition. Due to injuries and benchings, Reynolds has played just 922 snaps over the past two seasons.

Falcons placed RG Garrett Reynolds (back) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Phillip Manley was promoted from the practice squad to take Reynold's roster spot while No. 55 overall pick Peter Konz moves into the starting lineup. Pro Football Focus graded Reynolds as a league-average starter in the first half of the season. A 2009 fifth-round pick, Reynolds is a free agent in 2013.

Garrett Reynolds will enter the season as the Falcons' starting right guard.

Reynolds' name is likely written in pencil, however. The Falcons have been hesitant to declare a winner at right guard, and rookie Peter Konz could still displace Reynolds early in the season.
Tue, Sep 4, 2012 06:19:00 PM

Falcons coach Mike Smith considers Garrett Reynolds the favorite to start at right guard at this point in the summer.

Reynolds was tossed around like a rag doll in pass protection and especially run blocking a season ago, and lost the right guard job to Joe Hawley in early November. The Falcons believe Reynolds will improve, but rookie Peter Konz should give him a run for his money in August. Konz was the 55th overall pick.
