Teams reportedly believe Eagles are willing to trade Nelson Agholor
Nelson Agholor has had an up-and-down career with the Philadelphia Eagles since they drafted him in the first round back 2015, and there are apparently some teams that believe he could wind up elsewhere next season.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, teams view Agholor as being available via trade heading into the NFL Draft.
One player teams view as being available: #Eagles WR Nelson Agholor. A versatile weapon, he carries a $9.4M fully guaranteed price tag and is a potential to be traded if Philly drafts a receiver.

Agholor is entering the final year of his rookie contract, and he is set to make more than $9 million after the Eagles exercised his fifth-year option. While he has been a productive player over the past two seasons, that price tag seems a little steep for someone who caught 64 passes in 2018 and 62 the year before that.
Injuries to Carson Wentz have probably hindered Agholor’s development a bit, but the Eagles are already paying close to top dollar for another member of their receiver corps with Alshon Jeffery. They also brought back a familiar face that Wentz is giddy about having around, so it would not be a shock if they traded Agholor in the right deal.
