Looking to add depth to their receiving corps and kick return game, the Seattle Seahawks signed wide receiver Keenan Reynolds to a one-year deal on May 16th. Reynolds, a sixth-round pick by the Baltimore Ravens in 2016 and former collegiate quarterback, will begin his third year as a receiver. Reynolds was a star at the U.S. Naval Academy. He finished his career in Annapolis as the FBS record-holder for most career rushing yards by a quarterback (4,518) In addition his total rushing and receiving touchdowns (88) is also an FBS record.

At the conclusion of his senior season, Reynolds made the switch from quarterback to running back / slot receiver, lining up in both spots during the Senior Bowl and his Pro Day. He showed enough potential to be selected by Baltimore with the 182nd overall pick in the ’16 Draft. Reynolds would spend all of 2016 and most of 2017 on the Ravens’ practice squad before being waived and then added to the Washington Redskins’ practice squad in November.
