Another WR reportedly available via trade: Eagles’ Nelson Algholor

Recommended Posts

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 wouldn’t hate this, but wouldn’t be that excited either.

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.

If you don't like Zay Jones you won't like Nelson Agholor

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

I think Agholor is MUCH more elusive than Jones and has far greater upside.

 

Speaking of Zay, I would love a straight swap. Zay for Agholor. They get cap relief and we get a better player.

Unless 2 of the B's are "Big Ben", they should save their money...

He probably wants to go to the Patriots.

 

Next year at the Patriots.. rack up a 1,000+ yard season and then onto a new deal elsewhere at $12M a year..

Looking at the Eagles' negative cap space, Agholor's $9.4M salary (with no dead cap) seems like the most obvious cut of all.  I wouldn't trade a thing for him.

He also got injured about 5 minutes after his plane landed.

I could see where you would think that, and tit for tat I would give the nudge to Agholor over Zay at present. But that would only really be based off of his performance last year. I may be sometime removed from my Philly home now, but I wouldn't actually find Agholor to provide much more upside worth any trade...there's a reason he's "available" despite his performance.

 

He's always had issues with hands and inconsistency with elusiveness. When he was drafted, the Eagles had a severe need to re-shape their corps as it was essentially just Jordan Matthews and then Agholor at the time. He had a rough first two years, and his roster spot was in question at that time wondering if he'd ever pan out, much less be the draft pick they were hoping he'd be (starting to sound like the Zay Jones story?). The Eagles made moves for Alshon to be the bigger and better target for them, added depth, and then needed even more trading for Golden Tate in their hopes for a playoff run again this year. Agholor will never be a key piece in their roster, and making him available via trade makes it seem like the Eagles would like to keep Tate if they can rather than see how he develops toward the end of his rookie contract.

 

I will concede Agholor's production has progressed the past two seasons, but if we're looking to add a guy who went 64/97 for some 700 odd yards - I'd rather we stick with Foster who is looking to be what the Eagles hoped Agholor would be.
