Nelson Agholor, Baltimore Ravens, Agree to Contract
The New England Patriots offense as a whole was hard to watch in 2022, and Agholor was no exception. The longtime NFL veteran had a rough year, finishing with 31 receptions for 362 yards and two touchdowns. As the season progressed, Agholor started to lose playing time to rookie Tyquan Thornton, and in the final game of the season, Agholor failed to haul in his lone target of the game. Ultimately, the Patriots finished 8-9 and missed the postseason.
Agholor originally entered the NFL as a first-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. Selected by the Philadelphia Eagles, the rookie appeared in 13 games, making 12 starts while recording 23 receptions for 283 yards and one touchdown on 44 targets. The following season, Agholor recorded a similar stat line, hauling in 36 receptions for 365 yards and two touchdowns on 69 targets while playing in 14 games.
The Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl in 2017, and Agholor was a big part of that success. Appearing in all 16 games for the first time in his career, the wide receiver recorded 62 receptions for 768 yards and eight touchdowns on 95 targets. The following season, Agholor recorded 64 receptions for 736 yards and four touchdowns on a career-high 97 targets.
After a disappointing 2019 season where he recorded just 39 receptions for 363 yards and three touchdowns, Agholor left Philadelphia and signed a one-year deal with the Las Vegas Raiders. He has a career season in the desert, hauling in 48 receptions for 896 yards and eight touchdowns. The yards were a career-high, and the eight touchdowns matched his career-best. Throughout the course of his career, the wideout has recorded 340 receptions for 4,246 yards and 31 touchdowns.
