Former Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds — who scored the most rushing touchdowns in top-tier college football history and went 4-0 as a starter for the Mids against Army — reportedly will continue his pursuit of an NFL career by way of Seattle.

Per multiple reports, Reynolds will attempt to catch on with the Seahawks as a wideout and a kick returner. The Baltimore Ravens drafted him in the sixth round in 2016, but he didn’t make the roster and spent the last two seasons on practice squads with the Ravens and Washington Redskins.

Reynolds went straight from Annapolis into the NFL mix, a path no longer open to prospective pro players after a Defense Department policy change announced last year, days before the 2017 NFL draft.

Running Navy’s option attack, Reynolds rushed for two scores and threw for another in Navy’s 21-17 win over Army in 2015, the final victory in a 14-game rivalry win streak. He wrapped up his college career with 88 rushing touchdowns and 4,559 rushing yards, the most ever by a top-division college football quarterback.

All that said, he’s far from the most famous former QB that’s been on Seattle’s radar this offseason.
