Agholor's one-year, $1.05 million contract with the Raiders includes $887,500 guaranteed, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports. Tafur expects Agholor to return punts for the Raiders as well as provide the team with added wideout depth, but the terms of the 2015 first-rounder's deal demonstrates that the free-agent market for his services wasn't especially robust. Agholor -- who caught 39 passes for 363 yards and three TDs in 11 games for the Eagles last season -- will now vie for slotting in a Las Vegas receiving corps that also includes Hunter Renfrow, Tyrell Williams and Zay Jones.
Agholor (knee) signed a one-year contract with the Raiders on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. It's a fresh start for the embattled 2015 first-round pick, as Agholor had essentially run his course with the Eagles after failing to record over 800 receiving yards in each of the past five seasons. It's hard to identify an obvious role, however, for Agholor, given Tyrell Williams remains as the obvious field stretcher while 2019 fifth-round pick Hunter Renfrow emerged as a valuable underneath route runner. While Agholor probably figures to be a quality receiving option for whoever wins the starting job between Derek Carr and Marcus Mariota, it's hard to suggest he'll be any sort of fantasy difference maker, especially if the team chooses to invest in a rookie receiver in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Agholor said Monday that he'll meet with a specialist in Pittsburgh this week to received more information about his lingering right knee injury, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports. Agholor's injury sidelined him for the final quarter of the Eagles' regular season along with Sunday's 17-9 wild-card loss to the Seahawks, but the wideout noted previously that he first hurt the ankle in the team's Week 6 loss to the Vikings back on Oct. 13. The 26-year-old indicated he's still dealing with swelling in the knee, so surgery could be an option if the specialist determines that extended rest alone won't remedy the swelling. Agholor, who caught 39 of 69 targets for 363 yards and three touchdowns in his 11 appearances in 2019, is set to become a free agent in March.
Agholor (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's playoff game against the Seahawks after not practicing this week. Agholor will thus miss his fifth straight game, which sets the stage for the likes of Greg Ward, Deontay Burnett, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Robert Davis to handle the team's wide receiver duties this weekend.
Agholor (knee) didn't practice Thursday, Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports. Agholor is trending toward missing Sunday's playoff game against the Seahawks and could be ruled out for the contest as soon as Friday. If he remains out this weekend, Greg Ward, Deontay Burnett, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Robert Davis would handle the team's wideout duties versus Seattle.
