Receiver No. 2

Jalen Reagor

This one probably makes the most sense of anyone on this list. Jalen Reagor initially made the Vikings' final 53-man roster this year, and for good reason.

He had himself a solid training camp this past summer, running precise routes, catching everything thrown his way, and he was also a mentor to many of the young receivers who were in their first NFL camp.

Despite all that, he was let go when Minnesota decided to bolster their offensive line, and he is now on the New England Patriots practice squad.

Reagor is definitely down to his very last chance in the league, and maybe going back to the Vikings could be the opportunity that extends his career.

The move makes sense because Reagor is already familiar with Minnesota's offense. He knows the terminology, the schemes, and the plays and has formed some rapport with Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins.

Reagor could be signed to the active roster tomorrow and actually be ready to go on Sunday against the Chicago Bears.

Whether this happens or not remains to be seen. Minnesota could opt to go with a guy from the practice squad, but Reagor provides experience and still has the speed to provide some explosive plays.
