The Los Angeles Rams have an abundance of good receivers for quarterback Jared Goff. Top options Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods both topped 1,000 yards through the air, and slot receiver Cooper Kupp would have surely hit that mark if not for an injury.
But the most underrated players on the Rams is fourth receiver Josh Reynolds. Reynolds played extensively last season in Kupp’s place, and developed a great rapport with Goff.
Here’s what Goff had to say about Reynolds and the receiving corps:
“I think he’s really taken a huge step from April to now, just with the way he’s been playing and the standard he holds himself to. When you’re in the room with those three guys that are starters, with Robert (Woods), Brandin (Cooks) and Cooper (Kupp), you have to be at that standard and I think Josh understands that. Josh easily fills in does everything that they can do and he knows that. I have just as much faith and trust in him as I do the other three, so he’s a fourth starter for us. I know we’ve mentioned that. Truly a fourth starter and a guy that we can put in there at any position and anytime, and does a great job. Just seeing him progress over the last year has been awesome. like I said, I have so much faith in him now.”
Reynolds was decent in relief last year. The former Texas A&M Aggie had 402 yards and five scores in only eight games. He will play a valuable reserve role for the Rams’ explosive offense next year.
