Dallas Reynolds  – C/G

Reynolds spent his first two years in the NFL on the Eagles practice squad before starting 14 games for them in 2012. That year the Eagles barely protected quarterback Michael Vick as he faced pressure on a near every down basis. He was released the next season until the Giants brought him on in October to fill holes the decimated offensive line had left behind. He was re-signed last season in a move that I expected to only last through camp.

Reynolds played in 15 games last season seeing time at both guard and center. It is very clear that he fights and plays very hard but he has simply been over matched almost always. His struggles are indicative of an offensive line that has bottomed out over the last 2 seasons. Its hard for me to put much stock in a rookie from the Canadian League but with a younger player in Brett Jones to compete with I don’t see Reynolds wearing Giants blue much longer.
