Nelson Agholor signed with the Las Vegas Raiders this offseason, and it's about time, he was never exactly beloved for his time with the Philadelphia Eagles. And plays like this one should help explain exactly why.

The Eagles went on to lose this game to the Atlanta Falcons, 24-20, the same scoreline showing as this Carson Wentz pass goes right through the hands of Agholor with a little less than two minutes left on the clock. Key drops have always haunted the wide receiver, who was often heckled by fans for his inability to hold on to the ball in the clutch.

During an interview, one heroic Philly fan even took a shot at Agholor after helping save children from a burning building. Take a listen.

"My man just starts throwing babies out the window, and we were catching them, unlike Agholor." When you're receiving unexpected low-blows from a local hero, that's when you know you should probably leave town.

To Agholor's credit, he thanked the man for his actions and invited him to the next Eagles home game. He also decided to sign elsewhere in 2020, which may have been a win-win for both parties.
