Minnesota Vikings Reportedly Getting Calls About Former 1st Rounder

At one point this offseason, the Minnesota Vikings’ wide receiver room was loaded with players that had been drafted in the first round.

Justin Jefferson is the team’s biggest star.

They drafted Jordan Addison this year to replace Adam Thielen as their number 2 option.

Last year, they traded a 7th rounder and a conditional 4th for Jalen Reagor, who was infamously drafted ahead of Jefferson in 2020.

They even had N’Keal Harry, who was the last pick of 2019’s first round but never panned out for the Patriots or Bears.

Harry is gone now as the team decided to release him last week.

It turns out, that he might not be the only former first rounder leaving Minnesota before the start of the regular season.

According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the Vikings have been receiving calls from teams about trading for Reagor.

Reagor entered the 2020 draft with somewhat of a strange profile. He was a solid athlete that had a young breakout age and received a large share of the targets in TCU’s offense.

However, his raw numbers weren’t all that impressive. In his final season at TCU, he made just 43 catches for 611 yards.

Despite being limited by a disappointing offense in his last college season, it seems the Eagles were enticed by a strong sophomore season from the receiver.

Their decision to draft him 21st overall did not work out.

He made just 54 catches for 695 yards over two years with the Eagles before they dealt him to the Vikings.

He didn’t do much with the second chance, catching 8 passes for 104 yards.

It looks like that lack of production hasn’t deterred other teams from at least inquiring about Jalen Reagor’s availability.

If he does get traded, it probably won’t be for much of a return, but maybe a 3rd team will finally be the one to turn Reagor into a productive receiver.
