Another WR reportedly available via trade: Eagles’ Nelson Algholor

Recommended Posts

With Nick Foles at QB he caught a fair amount of passes.

 

With Wentz at QB, he's nearly invisible.  

 

I rarely say invesitgate that trade, but that might not be a bad one to inquire about.

Haven't they been trying to trade him for awhile now? He just has never really put it all together, for whatever reason.

Its not your money and the Bills have LOADS of cap that they need to spend on something. 

 

What I mean is that I would not want to give up anything good for a rental. I think we need to grow a core, I don't think we should be a rental type of team. A sixth or seventh? That's fine. I'd give up more for a more long term asset.

He's only 25 too.  Sounds like a fit.

The last WR trade with the Sixers did not really work out well for us. But Agholor does not have a significant injury history like Matthews did at the time of the trade.

So may be alright to trade a lower round draft pick for him, I guess.

Contract year, so he could be motivated to perform well... I mean if the price is right he’s worth a look, however last eagles WR we traded for ended poorly for us lol

Yeah cause we had a Qb that refused to throw to receivers.

Not advocating for algholor but one has nothing to do with the other 

 

while we are at it though I’ll take Ben Simmons at TE

Ha! Guess I deserved that. I shd have clarified that I am not as sold on Agholor as a WR as some others are. But at least he is healthy and durable enough to be worth a later round pick (which is why I posted the Matthews comparison).

 

BTW, Ben Simmons will make a better QB than TE:) And,  he may prefer a trade to the Rams or Chargers (since he can play with Lebron in the NFL offseason).

At the risk of sounding like John Madden, I don't think he is the "football player" Woods is. From all accounts he is a hard worker. It does seem that he is ripe for a breakout if he goes to a team that will make him more of a focal point in the offense. I could see him failing miserably under the pressure of being the "guy," just like he did as a first round draft pick. He played much better after they got Jeffrey and other guys around him. He isn't the competitor that Robert Woods is. There are a million stories about how coaches had to light a fire under him and push him, how the Golden Tate trade made him worker harder. Woods is working hard no matter what. He doesn't need a fire lit. 

 

I think that is the biggest difference. 

Woody is the one guy I wanted to keep. Love to see him back here someday. Such a tough player. Poor mans Hines Ward.

I like Aghalor but at $9M and 1 year the highest I would go would be a  5th...

 

Another team will offer a higher pick  for him because they will get it back as a comp pick if he leaves after next season..

 

Bills will still be acquiring more free agents then they lose next season so still no comp picks heading their way..

I think the eagles are a dark horse for one or the other of the Killer B’s from cross state. 

They would have a lot of restructuring to do.

Meh, the cap space argument isn't all that important these days. Teams find ways.
