Philadelphia Soul wide receiver Darius Reynolds will be playing with his team in ArenaBowl XXIX against the Arizona Rattlers at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, AZ Friday night. After the game, he will be taking a step forward in his career.
Sources say that Reynolds will try out for the Philadelphia Eagles of the NFL. Reynolds has caught 112 passes for 1,447 yards and 38 touchdowns. One of those touchdowns was a bobbling catch to give the Soul the win in the American Conference Championship game against the Jacksonville Sharks.
If he is signed, he will be the second Arena Football League player signed by the Eagles. Cleveland Gladiators DB Joe Powell, who officially signed with the New York Giants last week, signed with the Eagles earlier this season. They cut him soon after and he returned to Cleveland.
The Eagles kick off their 2016 NFL season on Sept. 11 when they host the Cleveland Browns.
