Wide receiver Nelson Agholor is getting a fresh start out West.
As first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Agholor is signing a one-year deal with the Las Vegas Raiders after five years with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Agholor, a former first-round pick, will look to resurrect his career after an inconsistent tenure in Philadelphia.
After some initial promise, his numbers fell apart in 2019, dropping to 363 yards and three touchdowns in an injury-hit season. To say that he was not a fan favorite would be an understatement.
Agholor’s best season came in 2017, when he caught eight touchdowns with 768 total receiving yards. He also had a career-high 64 receptions in 2018.
Jon Gruden will be hoping something like that is still in there as the former USC standout turns 27 in May.
