Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Josh Reynolds signed a two-year contract with the Denver Broncos, the team announced Thursday.

The deal is worth up to $14 million, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Reynolds is coming off one of the most productive seasons of his career. The 29-year-old ranked third on the Lions with 608 receiving yards and five touchdown receptions, which tied a career single-season high. He also caught 40 passes on 64 targets.

Detroit head coach Dan Campbell said Tuesday that his team was interested in bringing back Reynolds.

"We're still in contact with J-Rey," Campbell said, according to Jeremy Reisman of Pride of Detroit. "I don't think it's a secret what we think about him as far as (what) type of player he is. The unselfishness, the dirty work, the versatility."

Reynolds will presumably start in Denver while joining a wide receiver depth chart headlined by Courtland Sutton. The Broncos also roster second-year wideout Marvin Mims Jr. and Tim Patrick, among others. Sutton led the team with 772 yards and 10 touchdowns on 59 receptions in 2023.

Sean Payton and Co. traded former first-round pass-catcher Jerry Jeudy to the Cleveland Browns earlier this offseason.

The Broncos will be the fourth team of Reynolds' career. The 2017 fourth-round pick played his first four NFL seasons with the Los Angeles Rams and then had a brief stint with the Tennessee Titans in 2021 before joining the Lions.
