Rumor: Eagles discussed trading WR Jalen Reagor for stout safety during draft
While the Eagles came away with a tremendous draft class, they failed to address the secondary save for a few undrafted free agents.
Fans were holding out hope for Tyrann Mathieu as there was mutual interest before the draft, but he signed with New Orleans soon after the draft.
This leaves the Eagles with a glaring hole at the position:

- Anthony Harris
- Marcus Epps
- K’Von Wallace
- Jared Mayden
- Andre Chachere
Following Day 2 of the draft, GM Howie Roseman was asked about his plans regarding the secondary, “We’ve got between now and September.”
According to NFL Insider Adam Caplan, the Eagles had trade talks with Baltimore during the draft involving WR Jalen Reagor and safety Chuck Clark:

Ravens showed interest in WR Jalen Reagor but the talks died down.
After Baltimore gave the bag to Marcus Williams in free agency and drafted Notre Dame standout Kyle Hamilton, Clark appears to be expendable. The Eagles could continue their homecoming offseason tour and bring in the Philadelphia native.
Clark, 26, has played every defensive snap for Baltimore over the last two seasons as their on-field signal-caller. He has two years remaining on a team-friendly deal, and the Ravens are an ideal landing spot for Reagor after trading Hollywood Brown during the draft.
Clark has totaled 283 tackles, five interceptions and 28 passes defended over his first five seasons with Baltimore.
