The solution to the Eagles situation with receiver Jalen Reagor is an easy one.
Forget the cap implications, forget the return on investment, forget about the small chance that perhaps he could turn things around.
When it comes to the Eagles and Reagor, it is better for both sides to go their separate ways. The Eagles are better off without Reagor and the pressure to get him involved. Reagor will be better off with a new team and a fresh start, giving him a more realistic chance to turn his NFL career into a successful one.
Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Eagles general manager Howie Roseman gave an honest answer about the production they have gotten from the former first-round pick so far, but also seemed to hint at Reagor returning to Philadelphia next season.
“Certainly, heading into year three, expected more from Jalen at this point,” Roseman said. “We had a chance to sit down with him after the season and had an honest conversation about the things that he needs to develop and the things that we can help him develop to continue his growth, in terms of learning from anything. We have to do that. We have to continue to evolve.”
In the latest episode of Go Birds! Pod, James Seltzer and Eliot Shorr-Parks debate whether Roseman actually will move on from Reagor, or if the team will try to make it work once again with the underperforming receiver.
