Philadelphia – The Philadelphia Eagles trade wide receivers Galen Rigor A source told the Minnesota Vikings, ESPN’s Adam Shifter.
In return, the Eagles get a 2023 NFL seventh-round draft pick and a conditional 2024 fourth-round pick that would go down to a fifth-round pick if certain stat scores aren’t met, sources told Shifter.
The Eagles picked Regor 21 overall in the 2020 NFL Draft. In his two seasons in Philadelphia, he didn’t live up to expectations, collecting 65 passes for 695 yards with three touchdowns over two seasons. These expectations were especially high since he had been chosen before Justin Jefferson, who seems to be on the verge of stardom for the Vikings. Now, ironically, the two are teammates.
Rigor made the Eagles’ initial roster of 53 players after the most inconsistent season he’s had as a professional.
“I think when you look at Galen, one of the things one of the scouts said to me today is that he was one of the only guys out there who plays every day,” general manager Howie Rosman said on Tuesday. “The guy brought it every day. He was working on his craft. He had a great attitude and great energy. He was clearly a talented guy. He is 23 years old.
“We will do whatever we think is in the best interests of the team, and we felt there was no doubt in our minds that he deserved a role on this team.”
The top of the Vikings depth chart was set in position with Jefferson, Adam Thelin And the KJ Osborne. But they needed depth after receiver No. 4 Bessie Johnson He suffered a ruptured ACL last week, leaving his second player of the year Emyr Smith Marset upward Jalen Naylor behind him.
This is the third trade in two days for the Vikings, who on Tuesday got a defensive intervention Ross Blacklock from Houston Texans and also sent an offensive lineman Chris Reed To the Pittsburgh Steelers.
