Philadelphia wide receiver Nelson Agholor is set to become a free agent next month.
According to Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer, the Eagles are not expected to resign him.
Agholor isn’t expected to be a pricey option and is expected to fetch around 3 million per season.
In his first 3 weeks of the 2019 season, he caught 18 passes for 168 yards and 3 touchdowns.
The final eight games?
He only had 21 catches for 195 yards and no touchdowns.
Even though he had a rough 2019 campaign, he’s been a solid producer for the Eagles in his five year stint.
He has over 224 catches for 2,515 yards and 18 touchdowns in five years.
This ranks him between 40th and 50th in the league during that period.

Agholor talked about his career when the season ended and the high’s and low’s he’s experienced:
“Amazing,” he said. “Growth. Definitely growth. Opportunity to go through hard times and be at the highest point of happiness, too. I think I saw lows and I saw the ultimate high and in those opportunities is when you grow the most.”
“The ultimate high, I’ve had some lows that really helped me grow as a man and put me at peace with understanding things you can’t control and also looking at yourself in the mirror and finding ways to get better,” he said. “It’s been a beautiful thing and it’s really helped form who I am as a man and I’m happy for that.”
Agholor described his knee injury and how it affected his season.
He said his injury is when the skin is torn from the bone or connective tissue.
He talked about how he underwent 5 treatments and tried to get back on the field.
“You don’t put somebody on IR when you’re trying to follow protocol that could bring them back,” he said.
In a 2019 interview, head coach Doug Peterson praised Agholor and his performance.
“He’s been explosive in the slot position and has made big plays in that position. His confidence level his high right now and I’m excited to see him grow in that position and it’s been valuable for him.”
The Colts could use another dynamic receiver to pair with T.Y Hilton.
As a low-risk high reward option, Agholor could prove to be a good pickup for the Colts.
