Possible Trade Target - Nelson Agholor?

Recommended Posts

So NFL.com has an article that discusses a possible trade move for each team. They suggest the Colts take a chance and bring in Agholor to shore up the receiving core. They also suggest that it might take a 2020 4th rounder.  I don't know enough about college players to know if he is better than anything we could get for the 4th round pick. I think he is in the final year of his contract so that would be a consideration as well.Maybe he can do more here with JB and a familiar face in Reich? He did his best work in Philly as a slot receiver and I am not sure Campbell is the answer there. What are your thoughts on doing this?

(They also discuss picking up Vic Beasley in the video)

NA is worth a 4th, honestly WR is not a need. We'll have Funch back in a few weeks, and Campbell perhaps sooner. JB just had his best throwing game of the year, and TY didn't even get 100 yards.

 

The only thing I'd trade for right now is DT, DE, S, and maybe OL depth.

I’d look at Beasley for a 6th.

 

No interest in Agholor on my end.

Beasley's stats have went way down since 2016. He'll still want to be paid high.

So... no thanks unless it's a great deal.

The connection is there with Reich but I would prefer Leonard Williams.  We seem to have a relationship with the Jets so I could see this happening.

No!!!!!

 

Not only does he drop passes, but Sunday against the Cowboys he didn’t attempt to lay out and catch a pass from Wentz. He quit on his team. I’ll pass. Give me Williams from the Jets.

FWIW his OC, Groh, said he did not locate the ball soon enough to enable him to make the catch.  He said if he did he would have made the adjustment to make the attempt to catch it instead of still running hard to create separation.  He mentioned he works and practices hard all the time and there is no one questioning his effort.  Of all the players being linked to the Colts in trade articles he and Vic Beasley are the two being mentioned who wouldn't cost as much.  Probably a 4th. rd. pick.

I have absolutely zero interest in Agholor lol. Probably one of the last receivers out there I would trade for.

A 4th round pick is too much for either HD those guys.

No on Agholor.... if we can just get and keep everyone healthy at WR/TE... we're fine.

I could see Ballard trading a 4th. for either one especially Beasley.  They are both young so a 4th is pretty cheap for former 1st. rounders who just might need a change of scenery so to speak.

Why would you want the Colts to give up a valuable draft pick for a guy they don't need? Devin Funchess and Parris Campbell are close to returning. Zach Pascal is having himself a phenomenal season and is playing a hell of a lot better than Nelson Agholor. Even Chester Rogers is looking better than Nelson right now.

    • Had Funchess been practing? I thought he had to practice for two weeks before being able to come back?
    • Oh you were right on that one.  I still won, but I missed out on having highest score of the week by .32 points.  Our league pays out for highest weekly scores. 
    • I think there's a danger with any position of getting enamoured with the 40 time, I'd put 3 cone over it certainly. However, as always never go by just one metric, and never put metrics over film.    For all that was written about him being a below average athlete, if you compare  him to some of the 'good' SS's in the league he matches up pretty well:   Willis 4.55s (40)/7.15s (3 Cone) Collins 4.53s (40)/7.53s (3 Cone) Chancellor 4.69s (40)/7.36s (3 Cone) Jones  4.51s (40)/7.43s (3 Cone)  Adams  4.56s (40)/6.96s (3 Cone)    etc etc... 
    • CeeDee Lamb would be the dream pick imo. Reminds me a lot of Hopkins/Thomas, good size, great route runner and hands. Means he could take on a high volume of targets in the short/intermediate range, something I think Frank Reich badly needs (that's why he was high on signing Funchess). Put him on the boundary opposite Hilton and Campbell in the slot and we have serious options. Not as high on Ruggs when we already have Hilton.   I like Mack as a lead back, but not 25 carries a game. I would prefer a legit RB2 to take some of that load off him, preferably a RB to compliments his game, so a heavier, more physical, north/south RB. This draft has options in the mid round.
    • Here's where I think Kelly 'fans' are distressed. To your point we don't know Kelly...fair.  So what do we know.  We know he can run, dude's fast.  We know he has a strong arm, like that.  We know he'll throw downfield and into tight windows, good!  We know he will stand in the pocket, check. We know he has the stuff to go into Alabama with an Ole Miss team and beat em, that no small thing. We also know he has off-field issues maybe he's grown up, don't know but we hear good things from Frank.  So to someone like me, I like what I see and like what I hear...Rally confused.   Here's what we know about Hoyer, he has none of those physical attributes but he's good in the QB room.  Ok, well, I'm good in QB room but you wouldn't want me under center.  There's an obvious hesitation here on the part of Frank and/or Chris to make Kelly a part of the permanent roster, they will likely cut him again and hope he clears waivers over Hoyer, that to me is absolutely stunning.  Either, Kelly is an off the field nightmare we shouldn't be investing in OR he should be at worst QB2. Hoyer is simply not good, we can get his level of performance literally anywhere, he's the prototypical failed backup and those are readily available on the cheap. I wouldn't understand keeping him over a contract when he weakens the team relative to someone like Kelly on game day.  So to a previous posters comment, why is Kelly here?  If he is such an integrity issue it's not our job to make a man out of him while he occupies a spot.  If he's is good enough physically, which he is, and he's on this roster, which he is, he should stay up and get some first team reps, as all back ups should and see how matures.  It starting to feel like some ego at play here.  All in all, our leadership was ill-prepared to deal with Brissett going down and choked this week in prep.  It's my hope we dump Hoyer who is useless and keep Kelly at QB2, I don't think that will happen.  My 2+ cents.
