It looks like Eagles fans who have grown tired of wide receiver Nelson Agholor’s bumbling, stumbling performance are getting their wish.
He will become an unrestricted free agent this offseason and it’s unlikely the Eagles will re-sign him.
Via Jeff Mclane of the Inky:
After the Eagles’ season ended, Agholor spoke out on his five years with the team.
“Amazing times” in Philadelphia, Agholor said. “At the end of the day, ultimate highs, I’ve had some lows that really helped me grow as a man and put me at peace with understanding things you can’t control. Also, looking at yourself in the mirror and finding ways that you can get better.
Agholor was selected in the first round of the 2015 NFL draft by the Eagles and never lived up their expectations in his five seasons, averaging 44 receptions, 503 yards, and three touchdowns per season.
This past season, Agholor caught 39 passes for 363 yards. The 26-year-old missed six of the last eight games while dealing with a knee injury.
It’s uncertain if any teams will be interested in Agholor this offseason. He’s coming off a knee injury, however, he’s expected to earn roughly $3 million per year if he does get signed.
Nonetheless, the Eagles are expected to pursue Demarcus Robinson this offseason. He caught 75 passes for 949 yards and eight touchdowns in four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs.
“The Eagles will be looking to address the receiver position this offseason. While it’s unclear if either Alshon Jeffery or DeSean Jackson will return, or in Jeffery’s case, even play because of a Lisfranc foot injury, Nelson Agholor, at the least, is unlikely to return.”
