The Philadelphia Eagles have an absolutely loaded receiving corps. They have a deep-threat in Desean Jackson, a contested-catch threat on the outside in Alshon Jeffery, and a reliable sure-handed TE with Zach Ertz. In addition, the Eagles also have another young, promising talent with TE Dallas Goedert, and WR J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, who excels in the red zone. With all this talent at both the WR and TE position, one must ask if Philly needs Nelson Agholor. While Agholor is a quality WR, who has been able to turn his career around after a disappointing two-year start to his career, he is in the middle of a contract year and isn't primed to haul in a significant share of catches. Plus, according to Pro Football Focus (PFF), Nelson Agholor ranked 43rd in terms of receiving-percentage for slot wide receivers with at least 98 slot snaps, so the Eagles are not entirely dependent on his production. However, there is a multitude of teams that should do everything in their power to trade for Nelson Agholor.


Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars are the NFL team who most desperately needs Nelson Agholor's services because they do not have a dependable No.1 WR. At the moment, their receiving corps consists of Dede Westbrook, Chris Conley, Terrelle Pryor, and DJ Chark. Of all those WRs, Pryor is the only one to eclipse the 1,000-yard receiving mark (in 2016) however he has also struggled to replicate that same success due to his propensity to drop easy catches. Dede Westbrook and Chris Conley have potential but have been unable to put it all together for a productive season. If the Jaguars are going to be competitive in the AFC South, it is paramount that they find a quality WR. While Nelson Agholor is a tad shorter than most receivers the Jaguars seek, he is very familiar with incoming quarterback Nick Foles and former Eagles QB coach, John DeFilippo. Foles would thrive with Agholor because of Nelson's combination of being a quality slot WR, and deep threat, and Foles' tendency to either check the ball down or chuck it deep.


Baltimore Ravens

With Lamar Jackson transition into an NFL quarterback, the Baltimore Ravens could definitely use all the receiving help he can get to aid his development. As the 2019 NFL season approaches, Willie Snead is the only Ravens wide receiver with at least one NFL reception. To bolster their glaring need at WR, the Ravens drafted both Marquise Brown, however during his final season at the University of Oklahoma, Brown was plagued with foot and hamstring injuries and  is still suffering from these injuries during training camp with injuries. Even though Miles Boykin has been a phenom throughout training camp, he isn't a guarantee to translate into a reliable WR in the regular season. While the Ravens are a ground-and-pound team that will seek to build upon the rushing success they enjoyed last season, it is clear that they will need to ease Jackson off of his high rush count to decrease the likelihood of a significant Lamar Jackson injury. Plus, Nelson will be able to assist Jackson's development at the intermediate and deep levels, which was one of his most significant issues in 2018.


Green Bay Packers

With the departure of Randall Cobb, the Greenbay Packers could use a slot WR, like Nelson Agholor. While Davante Adams is an elite WR on the outside, the Packers lack another WR who has the ability to accumulate 700 yards. Moreover, wide receivers, Geronimo Allison and Marques Valdes-Scanting need to work on mitigating their drop percentage after dropping 13% and 9.5% percent of their catchable targets respectively (PFF). If the Packers want to maximize the latter half of Aaron Rodger's career, it would be wise to acquire a wide receiver, such as Nelson Agholor.
