Report: Teams have “checked in” on availability of Eagles’ wideout
It’s no secret that former first-round pick Jalen Reagor hasn’t lived up to expectations since entering the league two years ago.
Reagor finished the 2021 season with 299 yards on 33 receptions, a step back from the 396 yards he tallied as a rookie.
The Eagles have tried to use the TCU standout in various ways, but nothing has seemed to stick. It doesn’t help that Reagor has constantly been compared to Minnesota WR Justin Jefferson, who was selected one pick after Reagor in the 2020 draft. The Vikings wideout dominated the NFL this year, recording over 1,600 yards and ten touchdowns.
As the struggles for Reagor continue, a fresh start with a new team could very much be on the horizon.
During the Eagles’ exit interview in January, Sirianni stated that they want more production from Reagor but the team still likes him as part of the offense moving forward:
“As we head into year three, we expected more from Jalen [Reagor] at this point. We had a chance to sit down with him after the season and had an honest conversation about the things that he needs to develop and the things that we can help him develop to continue his growth.
We want more production from Jalen Reagor, and he has all the talent to do so. I like him in that number three spot right now, to be able to make plays, because he has skill. He has talent. It’s just our jobs as coaches to get that skill and talent out of him.”
Regardless of Reagor’s future, the Eagles need more talent at receiver. They’ve added veteran Zach Pascal on a one-year deal this offseason and are taking a chance on former Olympian Devon Allen — who hasn’t played football since 2016.
Perhaps the Eagles find their WR2 in the draft. Whatever GM Howie Roseman decides to do, one thing is for certain — Jalen Hurts could use another dynamic option alongside DeVonta Smith in what may be his final chance to win over the franchise.
