The Eagles on Monday exercised a fifth-year option on wide receiver Nelson Agholor, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.
Agholor, whom the Eagles selected in the first round (20th overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft, comes off his most productive season after two mostly unproductive campaigns.
Head coach Adam Gase is in his third year with the team and Mike Tannenbaum is in his fourth year as Miami’s executive vice president of football operations. And yet, the Dolphins still lack direction.
They were staring at a bleak future in a division that seems laden with young quarterbacking royalty. But GM Steve Keim pulled a rabbit out of his hat by obtaining pick No. 10 for UCLA QB Josh Rosen. It’s worth wondering if Bruce Arians regrets retiring now that Rosen and second-round WR Christian Kirk should be connecting for years as part of a promising trio that includes RB David Johnson.
If QB Blake Bortles was held in higher regard, we’d be talking about this team as a juggernaut. First-round DT Taven Bryan, second-round WR D.J. Chark and third-round S Ronnie Harrison might all make instant splashes as rookies if they played elsewhere. But all will have to scrap for snaps here. Sixth-round QB Tanner Lee comes with a nice level of buzz and might prove a viable fallback down the road if Bortles falters.

Game Kids Adolphus Washington Jersey A day after being manhandled by Astros starter Charlie Morton in Monday night’s 2-1 loss, the Yankees managed one threat against Verlander.
Sanchez led off the Yankees second with a single to left and Miguel Andujar laced a one-out hit to right to put two on with one out, but Verlander struck out Tyler Austin and Gleyber Torres to end the inning.
Verlander is 4-0 with 1.13 ERA in seven starts this season and (counting the 2017 postseason) 13-1 with a 1.45 ERA in 17 starts since being traded by Detroit to the Astros last Aug. 31. His only loss was to the Dodgers in Game 6 of the World Series.
Verlander’s 14 Ks tied a career, Adam Clendening Jersey accomplished twice previously including in 2012 against the Yankees when he was with Detroit.
