The new league year is here and receiver Nelson Agholor is still on the roster, meaning his full salary is now guaranteed. 

Agholor was set to make $9,387,000 in 2019, the final year of his rookie contract, with all of it counting against the cap and no dead money if released. The Eagles' decision to carry Agholor into the new league year means he will either be traded, which is unlikely, or remain on the team. 

Agholor, 25, was the 20th overall pick by Philadelphia in the 2015 NFL Draft.

In four NFL seasons, Agholor has caught 172 balls for 1,939 yards and four scores. However, most of Nelly's production has come over the last two seasons. During his first two professional campaigns, Agholor caught just 59 combined balls. In 2017, thought, he sort of broke out with a 62/768/8 season, averaging a career high 12.4 yards per catch. Last year, Agholor went for 64/736/4. 

With Agholor almost certainly back this year, the Eagles now go into the new season with a starting receiver trio of Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Agholor.
