Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Jalen Reagor could be on the move soon.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Vikings are receiving calls about the availability of Reagor.
A name to watch: The #Vikings have received calls inquiring about the availability of former first-round WR Jalen Reagor, source said. Minnesota traded for him about a year ago.

Reagor was impressive during preseason, but always risked becoming a causality of the numbers game as the Vikings make their roster cuts toward 53 players.
Reagor led the Vikings in receiving during their preseason opener, hauling all four of his targets for 55 yards. The former first-round selection followed that up with 38 receiving yards over the team’s next two preseason games.
However, the Vikings lack much leeway in the wide receiver department.
Justin Jefferson, K.J. Osborn, Jalen Nailer, and rookie Jordan Addison appear to have roster spots nailed down. If the Vikings decide to keep the typical five receivers, that would leave just one spot for Reagor and others, including veteran Brandon Powell, to fight for.
It’s possible that Reagor could earn the spot, but Powell offers more special teams upside, which could be the deciding factor. The Vikings could also choose to keep six receivers, but it seems unlikely the Vikings keep upwards of ten wide receivers and tight ends.
