Vikings Trade Draft Picks for WR Jalen Reagor

The Philadelphia Eagles are sending Wide Receiver Jalen Reagor to the Minnesota Vikings in exchange for a 2023 seventh-round pick and a 2024 conditional fourth round pick that would deescalate to a fifth round pick if certain statistical marks are not met.

The Eagles selected Reagor in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft out of TCU. Reagor was selected one pick ahead of Vikings superstar wide receiver Justin Jefferson.

At TCU, Reagor recorded 72 receptions, 1061 yards, and nine touchdowns. Reagor also achieved second-team All-American as both a receiver and punt returner for the Horned Frogs.

In Philadelphia, Reagor disappointed, recording only 33 receptions, 299 yards, and a measly two touchdowns.

Early reports from Minnesota indicate the Vikings will be using the former TCU star as a replacement for Bisi Johnson, who suffered a season ending injury earlier in the week. Reagor will also be involved on the Vikings special teams, likely returning punts in 2022.

This is a great move by Kwesi Adofo-Mensah and the Vikings, as they get a former first round pick at a very low price. If there’s one coach I trust to develop a receiver, it’s Vikings wide receivers coach Keenan McCardell. Who knows, maybe Reagor will be able to achieve in Minnesota, and at the worst, the Vikings found their starting punt returner.
