Chad Ochocinco urges Eagles fans to be patient with Jalen Reagor on Twitter
Jalen Reagor hit a new low in yesterday’s collapse against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with another rough game, specifically in the punt return department.
Returning punts yesterday, Reagor muffed two of them and lost a crucial one in the process. Offensively, Reagor caught one of three targets for two yards.
As everyone on social media went ballistic on Jalen Reagor, Chad Ochocinco stood alone defending Reagor and assuring the city of Philadelphia that the former first round pick would have everything figured out next year.
Yeah I bet, Chad.
Even DeVonta Smith, the Chosen One, wasn’t happy with Reagor yesterday, so I’m definitely not happy with him either.
During his rookie campaign, Reagor hauled in 31 receptions for 396 yards and one touchdown. This year, his numbers dropped to a miserable 33 receptions for 299 yards, and two touchdowns. There’s hardly any type of reason to be optimistic moving forward.
Since Ochocinco wants to compare Agholor and Reagor, let me pull you some numbers.
From year one to year two, Nelly actually improved and even got himself a Super Bowl ring after a breakout season in year three.
2015: 23 receptions, 283 yards, 1 touchdown
2016: 36 receptions, 365 yards, 2 touchdowns
2017: 62 receptions, 768 yards, 8 touchdowns
Reagor has stunk up the joint for the past two seasons and hasn’t looked comfortable in the slightest, no matter where you put him on the field.
I do however, believe that Chad Johnson should fly to Philadelphia and force this “fucker” to eat cheesesteaks with him. That would be amazing content.
Maybe Mr. Ochocinco is onto something, but of course, I have my doubts.
Cheers to the offseason.
