Changes coming as expected like alterations on a nice suit…

The Eagles traded wide receiver Jalen Reagor to Minnesota for a 2023 seventh-round pick and a conditional 2024 fourth-round selection that changes to a fifth-round pick if certain statistical requirements are not met. Reagor, the Eagles’ first-round draft pick in 2020, had 64 receptions for 695 yards and three touchdowns in his two seasons with the Eagles and also returned a punt 74 yards for a touchdown in his rookie season at Green Bay. Sadly, most of us will remember the lowlights of Reagor’s stay here, which included a few too many drops, half-hearted decoy routes, and “business decisions” on YAC opportunities.

Giving up on his former first-rounder is no fun for GM Howie Roseman. But at least he salvaged some value.

Then Roseman and the personnel staff scoured the waiver wire and found a young, developmental quarterback to add to the active roster. The Eagles claimed Ian Book off waivers from the New Orleans Saints on Wednesday. In order to make room, the Eagles waived linebacker Davion Taylor.

The 24-year-old Book was a fourth-round pick of the Saints in 2021 out of Notre Dame. Book was the Saints’ leading passer this past preseason, completing 64.6 percent of his pass attempts for 315 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. He was also, in fact, the team’s leading rusher with 121 ground yards.

Meanwhile two Eagles were claimed off waivers by other teams – guard Jack Anderson by the Giants and cornerback Josh Blackwell by the Bears.

So the stage was set for the Practice Squad selections:

• WR Devon Allen – The two-time U.S. Olympian in the 110m hurdles event adds world-class speed to the practice squad; he signed with the Eagles as a free agent during the 2022 offseason after a six-year hiatus competing as an Olympic track and field athlete.
