The Eagles took wide receiver Nelson Agholor in the first round of the 2015 NFL draft, and last year they picked up his fifth-year option for 2019. But that doesn’t mean he’ll play for the Eagles this year.

Agholor has a base salary of $9.387 million this season, but the Eagles can cut him and choose not to pay him a thing. And given that the Eagles are very short on cap space, that might be the best option.

Another option is extending him on a long-term contract that reduces his cap hit in 2019 but gives him more money over the length of the contract. It remains to be seen just how big a deal the Eagles would give a receiver who has never managed even 800 receiving yards in a season in his four-year career, however.

One way or another, NJ.com refers to it as “highly unlikely” that Agholor plays the 2019 season on that $9.387 million salary. The Eagles will either decide to extend him or move on.
