The Philadelphia Eagles are trading wide receiver Jalen Reagor to the Minnesota Vikings, the Vikings announced Wednesday.

Minnesota will acquire the third-year wideout in exchange for a 2023 seventh-round pick and a conditional 2024 selection; the conditional pick could be a fourth- or fifth-rounder depending on statistical achievements.

Reagor, 23, has struggled to find a role in the Eagles’ offense since they selected him 21st overall in the 2020 NFL Draft.

The TCU product recorded 31 receptions for 396 yards and one touchdown during his rookie campaign. He followed that with 33 receptions for 299 yards and two scores last season.

Reagor found himself buried behind A.J. BrownDeVonta SmithZach Pascal, and Quez Watkins on Philadelphia’s receiver depth chart.

Reagor will become teammates with two-time Pro Bowler Justin Jefferson two years after being drafted one spot ahead of him. Reagor, who could provide value in the return game, joins a Vikings receiving group that also features Adam Thielen and K.J. Osborn.

Minnesota waived Ihmir Smith-Marsette after adding Reagor.
