LaRoy Reynolds is reportedly making a name for himself in camp with the Jacksonville Jaguars this summer.
According to the Florida Times-Union, Reynolds -- an undrafted rookie out of Virginia who signed with the Jaguars last spring -- has been seeing time with the first-team defense this week. According to the report, Reynolds has been subbing for starting outside linebacker Russell Wilson, who has missed practice the last two days with an ankle injury.
“I’m getting a feel for it,” Reynolds told the Times-Union. “The transition has been easy, because I’ve gotten great support. My main focus is knowing my job and being accountable for what I have to do."
In addition to his time with the first-team defense at outside linebacker, Reynolds is also running with the second team at middle linebacker -- and seeing time on special teams.
"What a great opportunity for him," first-year Jaguars coach Gus Bradley told the Times-Union. "He comes in and he’s a free agent player and he’s got a chance to show us what he’s all about.”
“I’m still a rookie competing and working to stay on this team,” Reynolds said. “That’s my main goal. I’m grateful to be able to move into a starting role and the coaches putting me in that position, but I’m still working my butt off.”
