Nelson Agholor Deactivated His Instagram Account

Bill Streicher - USA Today Sports

Rough season for Nelson Agholor.

Here’s a guy who won a Super Bowl with the Eagles and is now dropping passes, taking heat on social media, and finding himself the topic of viral memes.

To his credit, Agholor hasn’t really shied away from his struggles this year. He’s been available to reporters after games and during the week. He’s used Twitter to communicate with fans:

Looks like all of the negativity is piling up a little bit too much, which resulted in him deactivating his Instagram account after the New England loss:

I honestly feel bad for the guy, who has been asked for a second straight year now to be flexible and come out of the slot exclusively to cover for injuries.

That came up at Mike Groh’s press conference Tuesday, in which the offensive coordinator said this:

Q. You were credited a lot with WR Nelson Agholor’s emergence in 2017 when you came on board. Obviously, this year there’s been a significant regression in his performance just based upon the numbers alone and what we’ve seen. When you stand back and look at Nelson, what has changed over these last two years? (Jeff McLane)

MIKE GROH: From 2017? I don’t know. I would say that that’s probably not fair. I would say that over the last two years, he’s had to wear a lot of different hats in our offense due to the attrition at the position, and one of his strengths is his mental flexibility and his ability to learn. He knows the entire system as well as anybody. So, he’s able to handle a lot from that standpoint.

But the flipside of that coin is that then he gets moved around. In 2017 he was really able to really just kind of stay in one spot each and every week. We were healthy the entire year and we had the same three, four guys rotating and performing the same job.

His job description has changed over the last couple years due to necessity, and I understand the question, but to me he’s still the same player.

There’s truth to that. Agholor was fantastic in the Super Bowl season, catching 62 passes for 768 yards with eight touchdowns. He had a 65.3 catch percentage and gained an average of 12.4 yards per reception. Add in 15 grabs for 157 yards in the playoffs.

So we’ll end the post on a positive note. Here’s what Agholor did just two seasons ago:

    Do you think the stress related to Nelson being closeted is affecting his play?

          Yeah but they generally don’t pay 27 year old strippers at Cheerleaders for hummers in the back room

    Its not 2017 anymore, I blame Howie Roseman 100% on NA still being here, there was no reason to pay him $9.4 million this year, just put that $$$$ into Golden Tate. Howie will forever be the GM who won the Super Bowl for us but he blows in other areas.

    Foles is going to have a career game this Sunday. Wentz will continue to stumble. Can’t wait to hear Angelo Monday morning.

    Carson Wentz was amazing in 2017 so he is still amazing!

    Nelson Agholor sucks! I dont care if he had a good 2017 season!

    Maybe the QB just isnt as good as you all thought he was

      Query – so long as we are throwing around terms like “idiot”, why do spend time you troll a website catered to a fan base that you do not belong to?
