Jalen Reagor is battling for his roster spot or his spot in the WR room as he’s likely the 4th or 5th WR in all likelihood this training camp. The Eagles would take a bigger financial hit in releasing him than keeping him so that’s why it’s more unlikely he’s actually gone than here. That being said, as a bit of draft nerd myself, I have a staunch “3 year rule” I try my best to follow. Now, we don’t need to recap Reagor’s first two years, because everyone, including Jalen himself would probably tell you it’s not good enough. Fine, plenty of young players struggle to develop in their first two years but that third year can be the year it finally clicks for a lot of players. This is the year that you’ll finally get a good idea of who Jalen Reagor is as an NFL player. We all know the direction it’s heading but I always like to give the tires one last kick before moving on.
That being said, I want Jalen Reagor to succeed because it’s what’s best for the Philadelphia Eagles. Twitter is something that Jalen has battled back and forth with during his first two years with the fans and the media. Jalen now with the addition of WR AJ Brown, should have some pressure off his shoulders not having to be one of the team’s top two WR’s. There was some anonymity to his season upcoming, pressure was off some. This is, or was a good thing. Then yesterday, Twitter got him again. This time by local NBC Sports Philly reporter John Clark who tweeted that Reagor was having a difficult start to camp.
The now since deleted tweet (curse blacked out in screenshot) by Reagor made some waves throughout Eagles Twitter yesterday as something like this doesn’t go unnoticed. Just put the phone down man, please, not for me or Eagles fans but for yourself. We all know Eagles training camp is over-analyzed, there’s no good that will come from you being online. John Clark is well respected in town and by a lot of players, he’s tweeted only what HE SAW at camp. His opinion shouldn’t bother you as much as it seemingly did. You’re not helping yourself by occupying your mind with the over analyzation of camp. We all know that Twitter can be a toxic place, get your mind right and off of Twitter.
