3 Most Likely Destinations for Nelson Agholor in Free Agency
By Max Staley
One of the biggest surprises of the Las Vegas Raiders' 2020 campaign was the play of wide receiver Nelson Agholor. Signed after a forgettable stint with the Philadelphia Eagles, the 27-year-old racked up 896 yards and 8 touchdowns. He was remarkably efficient to boot, boasting the league's sixth-best yards per target figure (10.9).
While the Raiders would surely love to have him back, he might've priced his way out of Las Vegas. With that in mind, here are the three most likely destinations for Nelson Agholor in free agency.

3. Baltimore Ravens
The Baltimore Ravens have needed help at wide receiver for a while now. But recent reports have indicated the team isn't planning on breaking the bank to land big names like Allen Robinson or Chris Godwin. Signing a guy like Agholor to a low-risk, cheap deal could be a way to bolster the position without spending too much money.
2. Washington Football Team
The Washington Football Team has a superstar wideout in Terry McLaurin, but they have very little outside of the Ohio State product. Agholor would step in and instantly be the second-best WR on this team. Plus, Agholor is a true burner. His ability to take the top off the defense could provide an explosive element to an offense that sorely needs it.
1. Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers fans are surely hoping to land a big-name stud like Godwin, Robinson or Will Fuller, but their limited cap flexibility makes that very unlikely. Agholor wouldn't cost nearly as much as some of the big names, but the version of him we saw in 2020 would be an excellent fit in Green Bay. Last year, the former Eagle hauled in 47.8% of his targets that went 20-plus yards downfield, which ranked ninth among qualified players. He could be like a souped-up version of Marquez Valdes-Scantling, who only hauled in 30.4% of those targets in 2020.
