Apparently, select NFL teams could be in the market for buying Philadelphia Eagles’ wide receiver, Nelson Agholor.
This weekend is going to be very interesting for the Philadelphia Eagles. Having Howie Roseman in the front office means that a trade could go down at any moment. Some believe the Eagles will trade up in the first round at some point, while others believe the Eagles could also trade back. One thing that hasn’t really been mentioned that much though is the idea of the Eagles trading for a player. Or perhaps even trading away one of their own current players.
Once again, Philadelphia Eagles’ wide receiver Nelson Agholor name is popping up in trade discussions. Once free agency opened up, it seemed like there was a real possibility that Agholor could get moved via trade or release – but the Eagles wouldn’t make a move, which then made his fifth-year option guaranteed for the 2019 NFL season. That indicated the Eagles would probably hold onto Agholor for at least another year, but it seems as though he’s gaining steam on the market once again.
Agholor is gaining interest
After a terrible start to his career, Agholor was viewed as a major bust in Philadelphia since he was drafted in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft. He eventually showed signs of major progression in year three, when he thrived in his role in the slot on the offense. Unfortunatley during his fourth year, he didn’t take another significant step forward. At this point, Agholor is what he is. A solid slot receiver, which is suitable for around 700 yards, and about five touchdowns in a year.
Seeing as though paying Agholor over $9 million for a year seems a bit expensive already, it seems doubtful that the Eagles sign him to a bigger contract when the time comes next offseason. So instead of allowing Agholor to walk for nothing, the Eagles could be looking to move him this weekend to get some value out of him if the price is right.
