Along with having Reynolds announce the choose, coach Bruce Arians, a two-time most cancers survivor, known as Reynolds and invited him and his dad and mom, Kenneth and Kelly Reynolds, to fly again to Tampa with fifth total draft choice Devin White.
Reynolds took part in White’s introductory information convention, performed pool with Professional Bowl broad receiver Mike Evans and bought to fulfill Professional Soccer Corridor of Fame coach Tony Dungy.
Evans was really the one who delivered the message to Reynolds by way of video at his college that he’d be making the draft choose.
“This one hurts man,” Evans tweeted. “You liked the squad whatever the end result. It was nice attending to know you. RIP my good friend.”
