Reagor was acquired by the Vikings from the Eagles in a first-round trade.
The Philadelphia Eagles are exchanging previous first-round collector Jalen Reagor to the Minnesota Vikings for a 2023 seventh-round pick and a 2024 restrictive fourth-round determination, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport detailed Wednesday, per sources. The Vikings later affirmed the exchange, alongside the postponing of recipient Ihmir Smith-Marsette.
The arrangement stops Reagor’s overwhelmed profession in Philadelphia, and permits him a new beginning with a group moving into another time.
Reagor’s time in the City of Brotherly Love was not even close to cheerful. The 2020 first-round pick showed up as what Eagles fans trusted would be the unchallenged top recipient for the establishment into the indefinite future, however he never verged on satisfying that fantasy. All things considered, Reagor, who was the No. 21 by and large pick in 2020, battled as a newbie, getting only 31 of 54 focuses in 11 games, and missed five games because of a torn tendon in his thumb.
Reagor had 2021 accessible to him to rebuild his picture and refocus. Then, at that point, the Eagles chosen Heisman Trophy victor DeVonta Smith, who turned into the No. 1 recipient Philadelphia trusted Reagor would be. When the 2021 postseason showed up, Reagor again had issues, fumbling two dropkicks and losing one of them in a trump card misfortune to the Buccaneers.
The expansion of A.J. Brown and potential gain of Quez Watkins implied the Eagles would be fine without Reagor, an apparently logical contender to get cut at the cutoff time.
He rather made the 53-man program and endured under 24 hours.
The Vikings procured Reagor for a remuneration bundle that was bigger than most would anticipate. The reality the Eagles, to be perfectly honest, got anything for Reagor is a success for head supervisor Howie Roseman.
Notwithstanding the negative tone above, Minnesota sees an open door with Reagor. The Vikings have a quarterback who has demonstrated he can associate with different targets, and Minnesota has a heavenly team in Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen. K.J. Osborn looms as a promising player, and Michigan State item Jalen Nailor will burn through 2022 considering making the plunge in the NFL.
This is all to say Reagor has practically no strain on him in Minnesota. Rather than conveying the devastating load of first-round assumptions, Reagor can adjust at his speed and expect to underwrite whenever potential open doors emerge.
Eventually, the Eagles concede they failed to connect on Reagor. In any case, neither one of the groups is harming an excessive amount of as a result of it.
