Lions re-sign RB Craig Reynolds, two others

The Detroit Lions re-signed running back Craig Reynolds, linebacker James Houston and guard Kayode Awosika to exclusive rights contracts on Monday.

Reynolds, 27, rushed for 179 yards and a touchdown in 17 regular-season games with the Lions in 2023, adding five catches for 47 yards. He added a 1-yard TD run in the divisional playoff win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Houston, 25, has contributed eight sacks in nine games (three starts) since being drafted by the Lions in the sixth round in 2022.

Awosika, 25, appeared in 15 games (three starts) in his second season with the Lions in 2023.

Coming off last season’s 12-5 record and a trip to the NFC Championship Game, Detroit opened its voluntary offseason program on Monday.
