The Minnesota Vikings have reportedly acquired wide receiver Jalen Reagor from the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for multiple future draft picks, sources with knowledge of the trade confirmed to ESPN's Adam Schefter on Wednesday.

"Trade: Eagles are sending WR Jalen Reagor to the Minnesota Vikings in exchange for a 2023 7th-round pick and a 2024 conditional 4th-round pick that would deescalate to a 5th-round pick if certain statistical marks are not met, sources tell ESPN," Schefter tweeted.

Reagor was selected by the Eagles at No. 21 overall in the 2020 NFL Draft, which allowed the Vikings to take fellow wide receiver Justin Jefferson with the following pick.

Jefferson was as a second-team All-Pro and Pro Bowl selection during each of his first two NFL seasons, while Reagor has been limited to just 24 starts in his pro career.

A clip from the Vikings' war room during the remote 2020 NFL Draft shows former head coach Mike Zimmer and former general manager Rick Spielman celebrating the Eagles' decision, which allowed Jefferson to fall to the team at No. 22 overall, over a Zoom call.
