After a disappointing rookie year, in which he was often injured and rarely contributed, Eagles wide receiver Jalen Reagor seems to have found his place in Eagles life:
After a recent training camp practice, Reagor hinted at getting back to his “roots” of making big plays and confirming that he’ll see time as a slot wide river.
Last season Greg Ward led Birds receivers in receptions and he’s also among the league leaders in shortest routes run over the past two seasons. The Eagles need to be more explosive overall and getting Reagor matched up in space could do wonders for the former TCU star in year two.
If the slot works out, Eagles fans may get over the fact that they passed on Justin Jefferson in the 2020 NFL Draft because the feeling was that Reagor could provide more value to the offense, as an outside receiver.
