SAN ANTONIO – Detroit Lions free agent wide receiver Josh Reynolds is signing a two-year $14 million deal with the Denver Broncos, according to media reports.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Reynolds, 29, will replace wide receiver Jerry Jeudy, who was traded this offseason to the Cleveland Browns, where he signed a contract extension. Despite the Lions’ attempt to keep him, Reynolds will instead join wideouts Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick and Marvin Mims in Denver.
