The Philadelphia Eagles agreed to terms with Jalen Reagor on his rookie contract, according to an official announcement from the team.
The Eagles typically wrap up their draft pick signings when rookie minicamp takes place at the NovaCare Complex in May but this offseason has obviously been anything but typical. NFL teams haven’t been as quick to sign their rookies as the coronavirus pandemic has prevented players from visiting team facilities in person. On that note, Eagles rookies are currently scheduled to report to the NovaCare Complex for the start of training camp by tomorrow, July 21.
The process of signing picks is usually pretty simple since the Collective Bargaining Agreement dictates slotted rookie contracts based on draft position. Here’s a look at the projected details of Reagor’s deal, via Over The Cap:
The Eagles can also exercise a fifth-year option on Reagor’s contract for 2024. The deadline for that decision comes in 2023. Note that Reagor is first eligible for a contract extension after the 2022 season.
Reagor is the only significant investment the Eagles made at wide receiver this offseason despite the fact the position was a huge need. It remains to be seen how much he’ll be able to contribute as a rookie but the team clearly likes his potential. The Eagles envision Reagor as an explosive downfield threat who can be an heir to the aging DeSean Jackson.
The Eagles now have three of their 2020 NFL Draft picks under contract with Prince Tega Wanogho and Quez Watkins agreeing to terms earlier this offseason. The Eagles still need to sign their remaining seven picks so the players are eligible to participate in training camp.
