Could Nelson Agholor find himself in New England?
The Patriots have struggled to acquire deep threats in recent years. Therefore, this could be a perfect landing spot for Nelson Agholor, who was tied for sixth in targeted air yards (15.3). He could be the piece that allows Cam Newton to open up this offense in New England. New England’s eyes may be on higher-profile free agents this offseason, but Agholor could be a mid-level option for the Patriots in free agency.
What is Nelson Agholor’s market value in free agency?
After essentially playing on the veteran minimum for the Raiders in 2020, WR Nelson Agholor is set to make plenty of money regardless of which landing spot he chooses.
Spotrac has compared Agholor to the likes of John Brown, Robby Anderson, Tyler Boyd, and Tyrell Williams. Those four have an average contract value of 3.3 years for $10.33 million per year. As such, Spotrac has Agholor projected for a two-year deal worth $9.7 million per year. That deal would put Agholor just outside the top 20 highest-paid players at the wide receiver position.
This is exactly what I thought and I guess hope is the case. If it turns out that Samuel, in particular, gets anything close to this deal I will be disappointed. Unless of course that deal is with the PatriotsThey must have gotten word that the Golladay, Samuel level was going to be out of price range.
Oh that’s a lot of coin wow
Agholor was a hell of a player for the Raiders and I am sad to see him go. I am also glad that the Raiders didn’t give him $13M/per. He was primarily a deep threat with the Raiders last year, so he will be able to fill that need for the Pats.
Actually, he *is* a deep threat.
Not really.do not like this move, too much money and he drops the ball too much. Not a fan at all.
