All-22 film gives us the best perspective.
And now we’ve got a different angle of the Carson Wentz deep ball to Nelson Agholor that landed harmlessly on the ground.
Check this out:

That angle certainly makes it look like he was having issues tracking the ball. He starts to extend his arms and then just sort of pulls them back in, and the pass falls incomplete.
Maybe it’s worth another look at the broadcast replay, then we can compare it to the new video:

Just doesn’t seem like that “second gear” is there, and even if Agholor doesn’t think he can reach the ball, do yourself a favor and lay out and make it look like you were giving the effort to catch it anyway.
