Former Florida State Seminoles’ cornerback Greg Reid has had a rough couple of years.
After getting into trouble with the law and with the team, Reid was dismissed from the team before his senior season was set to begin in 2012. Reid transferred to nearby Valdosta State in his hometown of Valdosta, Georgia to play his final collegiate season.
Unfortunately, Reid tore his ACL. His surgery did not go well and after missing the entire season, he had a miserable pro day with the Seminoles, who invited him back to participate.
This season, Reid worked on getting healthy and was often around the Seminoles (His cousin is Seminoles’ linebacker Telvin Smith, who will be selected in May’s draft).
At Florida State’ Pro Day this year, Reid looked healthy and was impressive.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Rams took notice and have signed Reid to a contract.
Rams signed former Florida State standout CB Greg Reid, who has recovered from two ACL surgeries and worked out for teams at FSU Pro Day.

Reid has had his issues at corner at times, but was an elite return man and that may translate well to the NFL.
