Eagles Beat: Nelson Agholor should get his chances

Eagles WR Nelson Agholor said that he doesn't have personal goals as far as traditional statistics go - as is his nature - but he does want to catch a higher percentage of passes thrown in his direction.

"My responsibility is something that relates to accountability," Agholor said. "So when an opportunity comes my way, I have a percentage of opportunities that I must focus on reaching so my team can move the chains and my team can do well."

The new Eagles coaches watched the film. Did they see a receiver who could develop into a depending option?

"The film that I saw last year, I saw flashes of it," offensive coordinator Frank Reich said.

The piece added Agholor should get his chances as last year the Eagles used a rotation at WR. If he can't separate himself, the Birds could got back to a rotation approach.
