Signed as a free agent in January, Reynaud scampered 21 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter, pulling the Titans within 17-10. Later in the period he fielded a punt at Tennessee’s 15-yard line and raced 85 yards into the end zone, tying the game at 17.
Not a bad start for a player currently listed fifth (last) on Tennessee’s depth chart at running back.
Prior to his arrival in Tennessee, the 5-foot-9-inch, 201-pounder spent time with the Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants, playing in 23 regular season games and two postseason games with no starts.
Reynaud, an experienced return specialist who has lined up at running back and wide receiver in his first three seasons, has returned 53 punts for 440 yards (8.3-yard avg.) with a long of 36 and 18 fair catches. He has also returned 33 kickoffs for 677 yards (20.5-yard avg.) with a long of 49.
On Monday, he spoke to reporters about his chances of making the team.
