Nelson Agholor Signs With the Las Vegas Raiders

In a not-so-surprising move, Nelson Agholor is on his way out of Philadelphia. He is reportedly signing a contract with the Las Vegas Raiders.

Agholor's time in Philadelphia was a roller coaster filled with the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. His first two seasons left him to be labeled as a bust and was essentially benched while having to see a sports psychologist. Then in 2017 and 2018, it seemed like he finally turned a corner and would turn into a dominant and reliable slot receiver. In Super Bowl LII, he recorded nine receptions (2nd-most in a playoff game in Eagles history) to help the Eagles win their first-ever Lombardi Trophy. In 2019 everything reverted back to the way his first two seasons went, as multiple drops and mental mistakes cost the Eagles a few victories.

Even though most fans will choose to remember him for the multitude of mistakes he made, he should be remembered for the positive accomplishments he put together in an Eagles uniform. If he doesn't step up big on the go-ahead touchdown drive in Super Bowl LII, Philadelphia would still likely not have a trophy in their title case at the NovaCare Complex.

In total, Agholor played 71 games as an Eagle, recording 224 receptions (26th-most in Eagles history) for 2,515 receiving yards (29th-most in Eagles history), and 18 touchdowns (tied for 28th-most in Eagles history).
