Jalen Reagor - WR (New England Patriots)

Prior to the 2022 season, the Vikings made a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles to acquire wide receiver Jalen Reagor, a former 2020 first-round draft pick. Reagor struggled during his time with the Eagles, but Minnesota wanted to see if he could have more success in their offense.

The Vikings quickly found out that he wasn't going to be a good fit with them either. Reagor didn't make much of a positive impact for Minnesota in 2022 as a receiver or a punt returner, and before the 2023 season, he was part of the team's final cuts.

After the Vikings moved on from him, Reagor eventually landed with the New England Patriots. With the Patriots this season, the former Minnesota receiver has appeared in eight games, and he's caught three of his 13 targets for 33 yards.

Many agreed that he had first-round talent when he entered the 2020 NFL Draft. But after being with three different teams around the league, that talent hasn't translated into success in the NFL.
