Agholor linked to Colts

Recommended Posts

The Athletic's Stephen Holder reports impending free agent WR Nelson Agholor has been linked to the Colts this offseason.

It makes sense. Philadelphia isn't expected to retain Agholor and jumping over to the Colts would reunite the 26-year-old free-agent-to-be with Frank Reich and recently hired receivers coach Mike Groh, both who coached Agholor during the Eagles' 2017 Super Bowl run. He underwhelmed with three-year lows in catches (39) and receiving yards (363) over 11 games in 2019 but did previously flourish for career-bests as the team's primary slot wideout under Reich and Groh. The Colts likely view him as a reclamation project capable of pairing from the middle of the field with sophomore Parris Campbell.

I'd take him as a depth slot. H'd be a nice 4th or 5th WR, or even a 3, if the 1 and 2 are highly productive. 

 

I thought he went way too early when drafted. Was definitely a reach by Chip Kelly or whoever made the decision. 

 

That said, If they move PC outside to Z, and TY in to slot, NA would make a nice 3rd in that Z/slot bucket.

Wouldn't hurt I guess, but doesn't fix anything

He would be a wasted roster spot and wasted resources. This guy not only drops way too many balls, he doesn’t even go after them.

Pascal had 700 yards with below average QB. We have Johnson and Fountain. This guy isn’t elite. He isn’t a upgrade to the these three guys.

He would compete with PC or Pascal for #3 or 4 on the depth chart.  Not good enough to be the #2 guy I want.  I don't see the point of signing him, other than CB/Reich possibly having concerns with PCs ability, which I doubt.

1st of all.

 

I wouldn’t trust a single word that Holder guy says. Indy is very unfortunate to have him as their main ESPN media man.

 

2nd.

 

Every single Free agent is going to be linked to the Colts at some point during the off-season, Even QBs now. Lol Colts have most cap space and didn’t make playoffs. Leaves a lot to be optimistic about.

My thoughts too, any player that has had previous relationships with our staff will automatically be linked to us by default...

on the 1st.. yup, Holder is awful.

on the 2nd... same thing every year for every team. Holder (and all reporters) will simply put out garbage non-stop to get clicks.

Kind of hilarious that last year everyone was complaining about all the UFA the Colts had at WR. Talk is they have mutual interest in a former 1st round draft pick and half the people don't want him. Had a great year under Reich and Groh so lets see what happens.

We’ve tried to reclaim a WR nearly every year since Luck was drafted. And nearly every single one has failed completely (Avery is the only one I can remember who’s career didn’t come here to die). I’d expect this to turn out the same.

I live outside Philly and watch majority of Eagles games.  Agholor had an awful season.  This viral clip for earlier in the year sums up his season and how he is viewed in Philly.

Seemed obvious to me, but here it is - folks are building shrines to CK when he showed nothing more in TC than Johnson and Fountain have shown. Hence my response to MacDee's question. In other words, it seems odd to build shrines to CK but tear down Johnson and Fountain with practically the same extremely limited NFL data set for each of the 3. :dunno:

He's the nephew of a friend. It's a favor. The Colts are an organization that cares and wants to help fix broken things - help the city, help the people, help friends and family. It's a good thing, for the most part. :cheer2:

I tend to agree with you on this, but it's their money and roster spot so I guess they can do what they want with it. :cash:

From listening to Reich and Ballard, it sounds like they have a lot of faith in Campbell's talent and ability.  I imagine they have more concerns with all the injuries he had last year.

 

I wouldn't be overly excited if we signed Agolhor, but the fact that Reich and Groh have connections with him may mean something.  Sure, he had a bad year last year, but maybe Reich/Groh think he was mis-used and believe they could get him in the right scheme (one thing I really like about Reich is he seems to really work to get his players in positions to allow them to thrive rather than be so stubborn in his system that if his players don't fit what he wants he doesn't make adjustments).

 

I agree with you though, I don't really see the point in signing him  unless Reich really knows something that we don't (which is possible, as in 2017 he put up 62 catches and 8 TDs under Reich's offense in Philly).  From what I can tell is he would likely be no higher than the 4th WR on this team as it currently sits (maybe #5 if we brought Funchess back).  

 

It seems to me what this team really needs is a true #2 or #1a to help TY out more.  I think Funchess could've been that last year, but got hurt so early on.  I don't really see Agholor as an upgrade to what we already have, so I'd be pretty shocked if we actually signed him.

Frank was really excited to have Groh coming on board, calling him the best receivers coach in the league.

The Colts have not had a whole lot of success with ex-Eagles:

Herrimens

Hank Basket

Trent Cole

 

Agular has a reputation for the dropsies

 

PASS (please)

What does Basket have anything to do with the Colts' supposed interest with Agholor?

WR is a huge need for the Colts. No better way to upgrade the position than with a guy who drops a ton of balls and gives up on routes.

This is becoming the "6 Degrees of Frank Reich" (see Kevin Bacon) because any player who has ever played for, been coach by Reich or any of our current assistants is automatically linked to the Colts.

 

As others have said, we have th emost cap space, so all free agents will be linked or rumored to us for the next few weeks.

Why is Ballard always interested in reclamation project players in free agency?  Let’s actually sign a good free agent wide receiver for once. It’s not like the Colts don’t have the money.  Going cheap route only gets you so far.

That would be going the cheap route like usual in free agency. Come on Ballard go after a real wide receiver who can actually help us like Amari Cooper

    • Nothing like throwing at the wall and seeing what sticks mentality!  I too question the many 2nd-3rd rd projects as I believe this far up in the draft should be more proven commodity than projects.  I'm not questioning Ballard and Staff but like you this isn't passing the eye test.  Let's hope these early rd picks squashes our eye test!
    • PFF hasn't always proved to be reliable. Just my experience the past 3 - 4 years.
    • There were several that ate that soup, and asked for seconds lol...     I'm actually OK with Banogu, but I just don't like the fact that we've taken like 4 2nd and 3rd round DEs in the past 3 years (prior to 2020) and still had to go sign Houston. That's a lot of draft capital. Hoping Turay works out. Banogu is a total project.    And I really like Blackmon. I think he'll end up as the SS though. Given the system he came from, and watching the film, I just don't see the range require for FS. I certainly could be wrong. I think he'll end up displacing Willis for at least passing downs.   But yes, time....  
    • NONE of us ate the JB soup that was force fed to us by the staff but their actions of signing Rivers says they were wrong.  I cant argue with Ballards tendency to project as this is the most valuable trait known to a SCOUT but they will indeed overshoot more than hit.  Banugo looks like an airball and I think Ballard went for the homerun with Blackmon but only time will tell.
