The New England Patriots have agreed to terms with receiver Nelson Agholor, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Agholor is coming off a season with the Las Vegas Raiders where he posted 48 receptions, 896 yards and eight touchdowns. He also had a wild 18.7 yards per reception. It was his most impressive season after spending five seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, where he was buried underneath a deep and talented receiver group. Playing both outside and in the slot, Agholor was a deep threat who could stretch the field, a role he’ll likely have in New England.

It’s possible the Patriots view Agholor as an upgrade over Damiere Byrd. They have comparable playing styles, with Agholor likely to be a better option.

Agholor joins a group of receivers which includes Julian Edelman, Jakobi Meyers, N’Keal Harry, Marqise Lee and Gunner Olszewski, among others.
