Eagles wide receiver Jalen Reagor might not be long for Philadelphia. 

Shortly after the Eagles acquired A.J. Brown from the Tennessee Titans during Round 1 of the 2022 NFL draft on Thursday, Reagor deleted all of his Twitter and Instagram posts, adding more speculation that he might be traded this offseason.

It seems <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Eagles?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Eagles</a> WR Jalen Reagor has deleted all his Twitter posts. <br><br>•This coming after the Eagles traded for Titans star WR AJ Brown 👀<a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/FlyEaglesFly?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#FlyEaglesFly</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/NFLDraft?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#NFLDraft</a> <a href="https://t.co/aHAhM1quDy">pic.twitter.com/aHAhM1quDy</a>

ESPN's Tim McManus reported before the draft that the Eagles were willing to listen to trade offers for Reagor. So it's possible he could have been traded regardless of the team's acquisition of Brown. 

The Eagles selected Reagor with the 21st pick in the 2020 NFL draft out of TCU. He had an impressive college career with the Horned Frogs, catching 148 passes for 2,248 yards and 22 touchdowns in 39 games across three seasons. 

However, he hasn't lived up to his first-round draft status in Philadelphia. During his rookie season, he caught 31 passes for 396 yards and one touchdown in 11 games. He was targeted 54 times, meaning his catch percentage was 57.4 percent. 

The 23-year-old didn't show much improvement during the 2021 season, catching 33 passes for 299 yards and two touchdowns. He was targeted 57 times, a catch percentage of 57.9 percent. 

If he's not traded, Reagor will likely be used even less in 2022 as Brown, 2021 10th overall pick DeVonta Smith and Quez Watkins highlight Philadelphia's receiving group. 

That said, it's unclear which teams might be interested in acquiring Reagor. Several teams could still use some depth at receiver, including the Green Bay Packers, Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots.
