Patriots wide receiver Nelson Agholor continues to look primed for second-year leap

Nelson Agholor’s first year in New England did not steal the show. After signing a two-year, $22 million contract last offseason, he posted just 473 yards and three touchdowns.

Entering Year 2, Agholor’s future with the Patriots was questionable due to his contract’s structure. Plus, with the addition of second-round pick Tyquan Thornton, who shares a similar skillset as the veteran, many thought Agholor could be moved.

While trading him would help the Patriots in the finance books, he’s proving a potential move could hurt them on the field. Agholor has been the team’s best receiver at times throughout training camp.
