While Jalen Reagor appears to have turned a new page, it might be time for a new chapter. The Eagles wideout has been linked with a flurry of teams over the last few days in potential trade discussions and Howie Roseman would be wise to at least listen to anyone willing to take on a wideout who has struggled to find his footing in the NFL. But which teams make the most sense?
There may not be a team more decimated by injury at WR than the Chicago Bears.
N’Keal Harry could be out for the season. Byron Pringle has a quad injury, and the trio of Velus Jones, Dante Pettis, and David Moore have all picked up bumps and bruises this summer.
Chicago would be a great landing spot for Jalen Reagor to get out of the spotlight and establish himself as a WR1 now that Allen Robinson is a Ram. The depth chart is light at best and the Bears could benefit from someone looking to reinvent himself and prove a lot of people wrong.
I find this suitor interesting. Tim Patrick will miss the entire 2022 campaign which is a huge loss to take. With Jeudy and Sutton the two remaining Horsemen, Reagor could absolutely be the third and bring the speed that Patrick would’ve while on an affordable and flexible rookie deal with an option entailed.
Matt Lombardo (former Eagles reporter) actually stated that Broncos GM George Patton has expressed interest in Jalen Reagor. He also noted that an NFL Head Coach told him that his value would be nothing more than a late-round selection.
If you really want to get funky, it’s worth noting that like the Eagles, Jalen Reagor’s father, Montae, also once suited up for the Broncos, playing the opening four years of his career there.
The Ravens have been linked to Jalen Reagor for a couple of weeks now. You know when the official Ravens website puts out an article regarding a potential trade, it carries some weight.
Rashod Bateman is going to be the sole option in the Ravens passing offense after the Hollywood Brown trade and while I am a devout Devin Duvernay fan, Lamar Jackson both needs and deserves more. Reagor would be a cheap and cheerful option who fits the youthful mold that the team has recently been built around.
I hate this, you hate this, we all hate this. But for some reason, a couple of Dallas Cowboys blogs have been discussing acquiring the TCU product. CeeDee Lamb is the bonafide WR1, but beyond that it’s very murky after Coop was exiled and Gallup suffered an injury.
Reagor would probably benefit from the type of offense ran in Dallas and he will have a quarterback who can mask his flaws a little more in Dak Prescott. But is dealing with Dallas really a good idea? Like, for anything?
Green Bay Packers
I think every team would miss a receiver like Davanta Adams, but the Packers WR corps is built like the Eagles’ DE group. There is no long-term depth. Cobb, Watkins, and Lazard, are all in contract years. Reagor might not be the dream fit, but he at least gives them a bridge over troubled water until they can figure things out and find a reliable receiver to pair with recently drafted Christian Watson.
