NFL: Eagles trade WR Jalen Reagor to Vikings


The Minnesota Vikings acquired third-year wide receiver Jalen Reagor from the Philadelphia Eagles on Wednesday in exchange for picks in 2023 and 2024.

The Eagles will receive a seventh-round pick in 2023 and a conditional fourth-rounder in 2024, the team announced. The 2024 pick will become a fifth-round pick if certain statistical marks aren’t met.

In a corresponding move, the Vikings waived WR Ihmir Smith-Marsette.

Reagor, 23, was a surprise keep on the 53-man roster by the Eagles on deadline day. A first-round pick (No. 21 overall) in 2020, Reagor has just 64 catches for 695 yards and three touchdowns in 28 games (24 starts) over his first two seasons.

“The guy brought it every day. He worked on his craft,” Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said Tuesday about the decision to keep Reagor. “He had a great attitude, great energy. Obviously, he’s a talented guy. He’s 23 years old. We’re going to do whatever we think is in the best interest of the team, and we felt like there was no doubt in our mind that he deserved a role on this team.”

Reagor also returned 31 punts for 227 yards, which tied for eighth most punt return yards in the NFL in 2021. Reagor’s average was 7.3 yards per punt return.

Reagor gets a fresh start on a position unit in Minnesota that’s shy on depth.

Bisi Johnson and Thomas Hennigan were placed on season-ending injured reserve. Blake Proehl is on the reserve/physically unable to perform list and out for the first four games. Jalen Nailor made the team but is dealing with a concussion.

Two-time Pro Bowl selections Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen are the starters alongside K.J. Osborn.
