Former Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds may be getting a second chance at carving out an NFL career with the Washington Redskins.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Reynolds worked out for the Redskins on Wednesday morning and took a physical afterward. Rapoport added that he is expected to be signed to Washington’s practice in the very near future.
Ex- #Navy & #Ravens WR Keenan Reynolds had a workout with the #Redskins this morning, I’m told. He’s also taken a physical and is likely to sign to the practice squad. Cool for a Navy guy to land in the nation’s capital.
