Detroit Lions sign Garrett Reynolds
By Michael Rothstein
The Detroit Lions are still trying to bolster their offensive line.
The team signed veteran guard Garrett Reynolds on Thursday, according to his agent. Reynolds adds to an interior line group that has starters Rob Sims, Larry Warford and Dominic Raiola along with backups Rodney Austin and Travis Swanson, a 2014 third-round draft pick.
Reynolds comes from Atlanta, where he started 10 games last season for the Falcons. A fifth-round pick in 2009 by Atlanta, Reynolds has played in 42 career games and started 23 of them at right guard.
He was released by the Falcons in February.
This is the second move in as many days for Detroit. The Lions signed running back George Winn and released guard D.J. Morrell on Wednesday .
A corresponding roster move for the signing of Reynolds has not been announced.
