Apparently, the Philadelphia Eagles were oh so close to pulling off another trade that, no doubt, would have made a few ripples in the NFL’s waters. People can’t get enough of any conversation involving A.J. Brown’s acquisition, but how about this? It appears that Jalen Reagor had one foot out of the door as well. Sadly, the second foot didn’t follow.
According to a report by NFL Network’s Adam Caplan, Philly had a deal in place to move the former first-rounder to the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for safety Chuck Clark. The full clip is below of that episode of Inside The Birds with Caplan and Geoff Mosher. Fast forward to the 44-minute mark for the audio.

The Eagles can still move Jalen Reagor, right?
Rumor has it that the discussion subsided. This has never been reported. Jalen Reagor hasn’t commented on any of this publicly. Neither have the Eagles, but could this be why Baltimore traded for Marquise ‘Hollywood’ Brown or, better yet, why Reagor scrubbed his Instagram account of all references to the Birds?
That could be a stretch. You never know how these things can go.
Since all of the hullabaloo, whatever it was that happened seems to have calmed. Reagor added a photo of himself donning Eagles gear on May 10th. We’re back in business! As far as what comes next though, it’s hard to tell.
In 28 regular-season games with 24 starts, Reag has hauled in 64 receptions for 695 yards, and he’s reached the end zone three times. It’s been a disappointing run, to say the least. That’s led to the constant discussions about possible trade destinations and whether or not Philly would even have any takers. This would seem to indicate that there are a few if the Eagles are willing to listen to interested parties.
What has to be recognized is this isn’t a quarterback. The Birds won’t pull off some major coup by shipping him off, so they can’t hold out for a king’s ransom.
At this point, we’ll take anything we can… a stick of gum… any draft pick to be named later. It doesn’t take much to figure this out. Reagor isn’t needed here, and it appears he’s interested in a change of scenery. Heck, why not call the Ravens back? It isn’t like they still don’t need another wideout.
