Former GM projects Eagles’ return for Jalen Reagor trade
Former first-round pick Jalen Reagor hasn’t lived up to his potential since entering the league in 2020.
As a result, the Eagles are left to turn to this year’s draft to add a compliment to DeVonta Smith. Of course, they could also visit the trade block. In this case, an ex-GM explains the return they could get if they decided to part ways with Reagor.
The Eagles recently signed Zach Pascal in free agency, a personal favorite of head coach Nick Sirianni. With that said, he could compete and potentially steal snaps from Reagor. Not to mention the upcoming NFL Draft, which is loaded with wide receiver talent.
Former Dolphins and Jets executive Mike Tannenbaum recently gave his input on the compensation the Eagles could seek in a Reagor trade.
“Sometimes a fresh start is good for both sides and [Reagor] may be a guy where a fresh start is worth. This year’s draft is littered with receivers again. As far as compensation, Tannenbaum said, if you could get a fourth-round pick, I’d think you have to really consider it.”
Personally, I feel like a 4th-round pick would be very discouraging. I understand Reagor has essentially been a bust at this point, but the Eagles are better off giving him one more shot. With a full offseason of work in Sirianni’s offense, perhaps he’ll overcome the mental blocks that have proved detrimental on the field.
There’s just too much talent to settle for a 4th-round pick.
