The Detroit Lions had no trouble fitting Josh Reynolds into their offense as a mid-season addition last year, but new offensive coordinator Ben Johnson says it might be a little harder to do. this season with rookie receiver Jameson Williams.

“It’s going to be a challenge because you can’t really compare it to Josh Reynolds’ situation from last year, which I would like to do because he came in late and he had to learn, and we didn’t really know him and what he necessarily did best,” Johnson said. “But at least there was a level of comfort between him and the quarterback, and we don’t have that.”

Reynolds caught 19 passes for 306 yards in seven games with the Lions last season after they claimed him off waivers from the Tennessee Titans in early November.
