Lions sign OG Garrett Reynolds

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions continued making changes to their roster on Thursday by signing veteran offensive guard Garrett Reynolds.

The Detroit Lions made a pair of moves on Wednesday, one of which involved the release of offensive guard D.J. Morrell. At the time, it looked like that move was to clear room for running back George Winn, but perhaps it was actually to make room for offensive guard Garrett Reynolds, who signed with the Lions on Thursday.

Reynolds, who was a fifth-round pick back in 2009, spent five seasons with the Atlanta Falcons. He was let go earlier this offseason after starting 23 games for the Falcons over the last three seasons. Now he comes to Detroit as the only real veteran depth for the interior of the offensive line. Young guys like Rodney Austin and Travis Swanson have been penciled in as the Lions' main backups at offensive guard and center, but perhaps Reynolds could challenge for a roster spot given that he's been a starter in the NFL.

As of right now, we don't know who has been released to make room for Reynolds. Given that the Lions signed a running back on Wednesday, it would make sense if they released one on Thursday, but that's purely speculation on my part.
