Report: “Eagles Are Open to Moving Nelson Agholor”

Jason La Confora of CBS Sports reports that the Eagles would be open to moving wide receiver Nelson Agholor.   I think it’s very important to point out that, It’s not a report saying the Eagles are pursuing trading Agholor.  The report says they are open to moving him.  It makes me think another team brought his name up and the Eagles listened to the offer.  By the way, this report comes a day after Eagles head coach Doug Pederson was hyping how he loves Agholor.

Here’s the La Confora statement about Agholor.

“A brief aside on other players available ahead of the league year. League sources said the Vikings are shopping corner Trae Waynes, the Bears are shopping running back Jordan Howard, the Chiefs are talking trade on Justin Houston and the Eagles are open to moving Nelson Agholor.”

Trying to trade a player and being open to trading that player are two different things.  He didn’t say the Eagles are shopping Agholor.  He said they’re open to moving him.  That’s true with 90% of the players in the NFL.  If a team gets a great offer from another team for a specific player, 90% of the time they’re going to make the deal.

Only the franchise players in the league are too valuable to trade.

Here’s exactly what Pederson had to say about Agholor yesterday.

“Love this guy. He’s the first one in and the last one out. He’s a hard worker. Spends time before and after practice. Can’t say enough good things about Nelson Agholor and what he’s brought to the table and what he will continue to bring. I think last year, you look at the amount of guys we had, and then we added Golden (Tate) midseason,”

“I’m not going to stand up here and say it didn’t affect Nelson. I think it did. The question was asked earlier about getting everybody the ball. In this league, it’s a challenge … And yet Nelson didn’t complain. He came to work every single day. He put in the time, he put in the work. He was a huge part of what we did … I’m excited, I love working with him.”

  1. Eagles will have new wr group by the 2020 season Alshon saves them 14mill with only a cap hit of 2mill in 2020

    Aggy probably will be gone this yr

    I hope they somehow get Antonio brown

  2. Agholor is an above-average slot receiver who can also get deep. I like to see him run more of the latter next year. Alshon is an amazing WR2, but not a WR1. We need someone who is fast and strong on the outside to stress those corners and safeties and blow holes in the secondary. Would not surprise me to see Birds takes either a WR or a RB in the 1st or 2nd. The Eagles were completely devoid of weapons at the end of the year. I don’t consider Ertz a weapon because he does not stretch the field. He went 10 for 110 in plenty of games we lost. Gronk stretches the field, which is why he’s such a weapon. We need an high-volume 3-down back. Nothing wrong with taking one in the first if you get the evaluation right (Zeke, Barkley, Sony Michel).

    1. We are one year removed from a SB win WITHOUT a diva WR… and here we are people pointing out the deficiencies of the players. Ertz averages 11 yards per reception… so Paul now complains that on 10 touches the guy gets the offense 110. I don’t understand that at all. Jeffrey is so fundamentally solid… the on,y thing he doesn’t do is whine, bitch and make stupid tweets

      1. That’s My Double Posting as “Paulman is Right” (Henski)
        Anyways Im not a big fan of Agholor and thing he’s a serviceable #3 WR but not at $9 Million
        I like Alshon Jeffrey and what he brings which is toughness, winning those 50/50 Battle so he’s fine with
        me as is Ertz production… I would like to see a Speedster added to stretch the Field and some SOlid Production by the RB Group with both Rushing and Pass Receiving which the Eagles really didn’t have consistently last year

        Nice Re-Signing of DE Brandon Graham to a 3 Year Deal as he will play out his Career as an Eagles
        The Eagles will likely go DT/OT with that 1st Round Pick and then Select a DE in the 2nd Round from a Deep DL Draft Class…

  3. In cases like this, you will have to choose a straight-forward picture frames.
    Leonardo Da Vinci was created within the Florentine Republic
    on April 15th, 1452. The beginning of Leonardo’s life was committed to art and painting in particular.

    1. I have a couple Da Vinci’s in my house and always preferred the side cocked picture frames. In addition to what you wrote, his natural genius crossed so many disciplines that he epitomized the term “Renaissance man.”

  4. Paulman is dead on Alshon is a #2 the eagles have nothing special at wr or rb and he’s also right about about ertz he’s a great route runner but doesn’t stretch the field kelce or kettle…. this Alshon last yr anyway and their probably gonna get rid of aggy this yr so the eagles might actually draft a wr high this yr.. and someone said brown is 31 and he’s light yrs better than Alshon

    1. AB is cancer who quit on his team…. why would anyone want him. The eagles do not employ your outdated philosophy of a number 1…. they spread the ball, take advantage of matchups etc… pay attention dummy

      1. It’s hard to employ an philosophy if you don’t have a person that can do it… on this team only person you could feed 15 or so targets to is ertz no one is that good just like having a #1 rb on the team cant give a rb 20+ Carries every game if you dont have one that can handle or do an effective job with that workload

        1. Oh I assume u have not watched them in the DP era… wow you have zero idea what you are talking bout…I think they’ve had some success, you disagree

            1. Dummy… 12-13 targets to Ertz is a given now you want to give a crazy diva 10 targets…that’s 23…. then you have two other WR, Goeddert and a couple running backs… mathematically it doesn’t add up. It is not how their offense is run.

  5. In cases like this, you need to get a rather simple picture frames.
    Waterslide paper emerges in clear or white however clear
    is a lot more preferred, given that almost any unprinted locations
    around the image may be clear. As modern humanity
