Reagor fills the open roster spot created when the team released quarterback Malik Cunningham on Tuesday. The Pats have since re-signed Cunningham to their practice squad.

Reagor, 24, originally signed to the Patriots’ practice in late August. He has been elevated for three regular-season games this season, the maximum allowed by league rules. Reagor caught an 11-yard pass last weekend versus Buffalo, his first of the season. He now becomes the seventh receiver on the roster, joining JuJu Smith-Schuster, DeVante Parker, Kendrick Bourne, Demario Douglas, Tyquan Thornton and Kayshon Boutte.

The former first-round pick entered the league in the 2020 NFL Draft with the Eagles. Known for his rare speed, Reagor disappointed over his first two seasons with Philadelphia, where he caught 64 passes for 695 yards and four touchdowns. The Eagles traded him to Minnesota last year, and he caught just eight passes with the Vikings.

Reagor was among Minnesota’s final roster cuts this summer. Pats coach Bill Belichick said of him Wednesday: “Jalen’s come in, been a really good scout team player for us. We’ve played against a lot of top receivers, and he’s gotten a lot of a good opportunities with some of the routes that those guys run to kind of be featured a little bit on some of the scout team plays. He’s earned some playing time, which has come from his practice time, practice performance. He’s picking up the offense, and we’ll see how it goes.

“He’s got good talent, good guy to work with, glad we have him.”
