Nelson Agholor agrees to terms with Eagles

Former USC receiver Nelson Agholor agrees to terms on rookie contract with Philadelphia Eagles

It’s a great day to be Nelson Agholor.

A week after the NFL draft, the former USC receiver has agreed to terms on a four-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles.

The deal is worth $9.377 million, with a $5.1-million signing bonus and $8.8 million guaranteed, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.

The Eagles selected Agholor with the 20th pick overall. He was the fourth receiver chosen.

Agholor caught 179 passes, 20 for touchdowns, in three seasons at USC. He also returned four punts for touchdowns.

Agholor was the first USC receiver to be drafted in the first round since Mike Williams in 2005.
