Here are three reasons Josh Reynolds could emerge as a surprise MVP candidate for the Los Angeles Rams during Super Bowl 53.
Along with Cooper Kupp, the Los Angeles Rams selected Josh Reynolds in the middle of the 2016 NFL Draft with the intention of the former Texas A&M star providing a much-needed boost to the passing game.
After trading up in the draft the year before to land Goff at No. 1, the Rams understood the importance of building a better offense around their beloved quarterback, which is part of the reason Reynolds was brought on board back in 2017.
Even though his role hasn’t been as large as Kupp, Reynolds has proven on numerous occasions that he can step up when Los Angeles needs him the most. In fact, when Kupp suffered the devastating injury of a torn ACL back in the middle of the regular season, Los Angeles still felt confident enough in relying on Reynolds after looking at all of the previous times he stepped up.
In a few days, Reynolds will take part in the biggest game of his football career when the Rams will square off against the New England Patriots to be crowned Super Bowl 53 champions, which would be an amazing accomplishment for a young wideout like himself this early in his career.
Part of the reason why Los Angeles wanted to make sure Reynolds was still part of the picture back at the beginning of the season when they were making roster cuts was due to the skill set that he brings to the table.
So in honor of the Rams taking on the Patriots on the biggest stage in football, here are three reasons why Reynolds has a chance to emerge as a surprise MVP contender if he comes through with a strong performance for Los Angeles.
