Another WR reportedly available via trade: Eagles’ Nelson Algholor

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. 

I'm almost positive 90% of the Robert Woods comp is because they both came from USC one after another.

I feel like the Eagles have tried everything they could to give him opportunities to prove himself.

 

Unfortunately I think he is just an average WR.

This.  

 

I wouldn't hate it...but I much prefer the draft to get another WR

Really not sure this guy is better than Zay, who’s not assured a significant role this year.

 

if we’re giving up assets for another WR I’d love it to be for a potential #1.

Shady sucks - he's afraid to hit a hole. Time for a change while we can get something for him. And in an area of need. We're good at RB and can draft or FA a capable backup. The no would come from Philly. 3 yds per carry! LOL!

Philly doesn't even think Algholor is worth his 9.3 cap hit.  What are the Bills getting for Shady?

A WR hungry team with cap space are the only teams that would want to trade for him.

 

His job on BUF would be what?  Replace Zay?

This is why the Football gods created the 7th round draft pick.

It amazes me how low the football IQ is with some Bills fans on this board.  It's mind boggling

This is a great example of irony.

Algholor didn't put up decent numbers until he was moved to the slot. He then put up two 700+ yard seasons. We have Beasley lined up for the slot with Zay who has been operating the slot as well. While I am all about competition, I don't see how adding another slot WR at 9MM when we have Beasley makes sense. I think he has value, I just don't think that value is with the 2019 Buffalo Bills.

Addition by subtraction. Time to move on from SM. Not a fan. Algholor isn't as bad as some profess. Aren't we still a WR hungry team with cap space? Or is everybody sold on our FA additions? I think Foster may still be the best of the bunch. Living near Baltimore, I watched Brown a lot and have not been impressed. Time will tell.

All the posters in this and other threads complaining that Shady doesn’t hit holes and dances too much would lose 90% of his 7-50+ yard runs if he did that. It’s stupid.

At 3 yards per carry, how many of these runs are you suggesting we can't afford to lose? For every decent run there are multiple negative yardage runs leading to 3 and out. There needs to be more balanced in his approach.

Yea, I always wait to see what you think before I post anything.
