Eagles Open to Trading WR Jalen Reagor, per Report
The Eagles are open to trading 2020 first-round draft pick Jalen Reagor, according to ESPN’s Tim McManus. The No. 21 pick out of TCU two years ago but his play on the field has not lived up to his first-round status in the two years since.
In his rookie year, he registered 396 receiving yards on 31 catches in 11 games played. He was able to catch one touchdown and score another via punt return. He tallied 33 catches in his second year for 299 receiving yards and two receiving touchdowns in 17 games played this past season
Philadelphia found its No. DeVonta Smith is the No. 1 wideout of the future. 10 pick in the 2021 draft, and have since rounded out its receiving corps–leaving Reagor as the odd man out. Zach Pascal, who was last seen playing for the Colts, was picked up by the team. From their days in Indianapolis, he was a favorite of coach Nick Sirianni. To add depth, Greg Ward was also re-signed on a one year deal.
A change of scenery might be best for Reagor seeing as how he will likely fall low on the depth chart for 2022. He was fourth on the team in receiving yards behind Smith, Dallas Goedert and Quez Watkins in 2021.
