If there is one team that has done a good job of taking conversion players and making them superstars in the NFL, it is the New England Patriots. With how well former college quarterback Julian Edelman has done with them, it shouldn’t a surprise that they are interested in Navy do-it-all guy Keenan Reynolds.
Reynolds is not going to be a quarterback at the next level, but he certainly has a chance to make impacts in some way. The Patriots are reportedly looking to bring him in, either by way of the 2016 NFL Draft or as an undrafted free agent.
ESPN’s Mike Reiss, who covers the Patriots, reported that the team is looking at Reynolds and weighing their options with the former quarterback.
“Coach Bill Belichick met with Reynolds in February while in town to present an award in his father’s name at the Touchdown Club of Annapolis, then tight ends coach Brian Daboll came to town to install part of the offense with him to gauge his understanding, and assistant special-teams coach Ray Ventrone followed up after that.”
Keenan Reynolds has been an electrifying athlete the last four years with the Midshipmen. He even set the NCAA record for most total touchdowns with 88, while breaking the all-time record for rushing yards by a quarterback.
While his days as a signal caller may be over, it certainly seems that Reynolds is getting a ton of praise from around the league. It probably would not be a bad thing if he started his NFL career with one of the league’s best teams.
