The Philadelphia Eagles have traded Jalen Reagor, their 21st pick in the 2020 draft, to the Minnesota Vikings.

The former TCU star became the highest-drafted wide receiver to come from TCU since former All-American Josh Doctson in 2016. Reagor went on to play two seasons with the Eagles, accumulating 676 receiving yards, three touchdowns, 321 punt-return yards and 48 rushing yards.

This trade comes on the heels of Eagles general manager Howie Roseman telling reporters, “He’s 23 years old. We’re going to do whatever we think is in the best interest of the team, and we felt like there was no doubt in our mind that he deserved a role on this team.”

Reagor will now join star WR Justin Jefferson, who was selected one pick after him in the draft.

Reagor will face his former team in Week 2, when the Vikings play the Eagles on Monday, Sept. 19, at Lincoln Financial Field.
