One Minnesota Viking named surprise cut candidate

Brad Spielberger of PFF listed out his surprise NFL trade and cut candidates as all NFL teams have to be down to a 53-man roster by Tuesday, August 29th at 4 P.M. Reagor made the list as one of his surprise cuts.

The Minnesota Vikings acquired Reagor from the Philadelphia Eagles for a 2023 seventh-round pick and a conditional 2024 fifth-round pick that could become a fourth-rounder. It’s possible the Vikings move on before Reagor even gets the chance to hit various statistical thresholds in 2023.

Reagor played significantly in the preseason with 91 snaps, the most of any wide receiver on the Vikings’ roster. The former first-round pick of the Eagles notched eight receptions for 93 yards over the stretch, and while he’s been solid, he is at best the No. 4 option behind Justin Jefferson, Jordan Addison and K.J. Osborn. Depth receivers Brandon Powell and Jalen Nailor offer much more special teams value, which could make Reagor’s role going forward an interesting one. In 2022, Reagor managed just eight receptions for 104 yards and one touchdown, and this season he has a fully guaranteed salary of nearly $2.5 million.

Jalen Reagor has always been known as the receiver that the Philadelphia Eagles took just before Justin Jefferson. Around this time last year, the Vikings made a surprise trade for Reagor just before the season kicked off. Fast forward to the present day and Reagor may find himself on the market yet again.

Spielberger listed the Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, Detroit Lions, New York Jets and Tennessee Titans as landing spots for Reagor.

The Vikings were also named a potential trade destination for Carolina Panthers QB Matt Corral.
