Jalen Reagor is more than ready to be a Philadelphia Eagles star.
We know. We’ve heard it a million times. Former first-round pick Jalen Reagor didn’t have the rookie year we all had hoped for. Seeing what Vikings wideout Justin Jefferson was able to accomplish didn’t help matters. Oh, you remember him. He was the guy that was taken one spot after Philly fans watched their favorite team take the TCU prospect.
Jefferson played lights out week after week, and fans are not very high on the former Horned Frog. Still, without making excuses, Reagor gets blamed for some things unfairly. The Philadelphia Eagles were mired in drama, and the rookie dealt with injuries while learning a brand new offense.
Don’t be surprised if and when Reagor shows out this season though.
Despite hauling in 31 receptions for 396 yards and one touchdown (not bad for a third option), Reagor has something working against him. We live in a time where everyone wants everything quickly, so anything less than 800 yards receiving and ten touchdowns would have been a disappointment for Philadelphia Eagles fans.
Respectfully, Reagor had better moments than Raiders rookie wideout Henry Ruggs, but much like the Jefferson comparison, that doesn’t matter at all.
Whether you believe it or not, Reagor has all the tools and the skillset to be a star in the National Football League. Given the opportunity in this new offense, we could be seeing a different player in 2021. Just give him some time.
