Eagles trade WR Jalen Reagor to Vikings

Jalen Reagor’s time in Philadelphia is over. The third-year wide receiver was traded to the Minnesota Vikings for a seventh-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft and a conditional fourth-round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Ironically, Reagor was selected by the Eagles(20th) out of TCU, one pick before the Vikings selected two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver, Justin Jefferson.

Philadelphia has been looking to solve their issues at wide receiver, and last season they got DeVonta Smith in the draft. This offseason, they acquired stud wideout A.J. Brown from the Titans, so after a disappointing season for Reagor in 2021, you knew his time in Philadelphia was probably going to be over at some point.

Last season, the 23-year-old had 33 receptions for 299 yards and two touchdowns in 17 games. In two seasons with the Eagles, Reagor, who had 24 starts in 28 games, had 64 catches for 695  yards and three touchdowns.

Reagor is still young and has shown flashes, so maybe a change of scenery could be what his career needs to flourish.
