Eagles trade WR Jalen Reagor to the Vikings

Trade 2022 Season 1920

Taking advantage of enviable depth and versatility at the position, the Eagles have made a move to acquire more NFL Draft capital, trading wide receiver Jalen Reagor to Minnesota for a 2023 seventh-round pick and a conditional 2024 fourth-round selection that changes to a fifth-round pick if certain statistical requirements are not met. Reagor, the Eagles' first-round draft pick in 2020, had 64 receptions for 695 yards and three touchdowns in his two seasons with the Eagles and also returned a punt 74 yards for a touchdown in his rookie season at Green Bay.

The Eagles have reconfigured the wide receiver corps in the last few seasons, though, and have a foursome that offers high-end talent in a variety of packages. The team loves the development of 2020 sixth-round draft pick Quez Watkins, who has become a big-play target for quarterback Jalen Hurts entering his third season. DeVonta Smith was the team's first-round draft pick in 2021 and set a franchise record for rookie receivers with 916 yards on 64 receptions, adding five touchdowns.

In the offseason, the Eagles signed Zach Pascal in free agency and then made a big move on the first night of the 2022 NFL Draft, acquiring Pro Bowl wide receiver A.J. Brown from Tennessee in exchange for draft picks.

With that group and with a summer roster chock full of young, ascending receivers, Reagor's chances to contribute significantly this season dwindled. Executive Vice President/General Manager Howie Roseman, still collecting future NFL Draft assets, saw the opportunity to move Reagor and did so on Wednesday.

The Eagles announced the initial 53-man roster after Tuesday's 4 PM final cutdown.
