Philadelphia Eagles Need to Bench Nelson Agholor


The Philadelphia Eagles have been on a roller-coaster ride this season. The Eagles started off red hot and won three in a row, then after their first loss, they bounced right back. Unfortunately, the Eagles hit a road stretch of games and quickly fell to a 4-4 record before returning home. This past Sunday to Eagles took on the number one offense in the NFL and successfully stopped them earning them their fifth win.

The person who did not contribute much to the game? Nelson Agholor. The same player he keeps dropping passes in what seems to be every single game.

In 48 targets, Agholor only has 27 catches. Now to be fair, he is only credited with one drop. But to drop the ball, you have to catch it. Agholor can’t catch. The former USC Trojan standout and first round pick have only two touchdowns in his 22 game career.

At this point I think Agholor is just a waste of a roster spot, nobody will trade for him. Not even Howie Roseman can trade him away. We all know he’s excellent at blockbuster trade deals too.

I think Eagles fans would rather bring Paul Turner up from the practice squad than see Agholor one more time.

Agholor is just taking targets away from Bryce Treggs and Dorial Green-Beckham who both have shown they can catch and make big plays. He had his chances, but now he is a liability on the field now.
