Ravens agree to one-year extension with veteran receiver Nelson Agholor

While the contracts of several other veterans are set to void Monday afternoon, the Ravens are keeping wide receiver Nelson Agholor in the mix for the 2024 season.

On Sunday evening, Baltimore announced a one-year extension with the 30-year-old wideout, who caught 35 passes for 381 yards and four touchdowns in 17 games last season. The 6-foot, 200-pound receiver finished tied for third on the team in receptions, fifth in receiving yards, and fourth in touchdown receptions. Agholor also added three receptions for 51 yards and a touchdown over two postseason games.

Pro Football Focus graded him 82nd out of 128 qualified wide receivers during the 2023 season. The 2015 first-round pick out of USC lined up in the slot for just under 72% of his snaps last season, his highest percentage playing there since the 2017 season (86.2%) with Philadelphia.

Agholor signed a one-year, $3.25 million contract last March that included four void years that would have counted for $1.668 million in dead money on the 2024 salary cap without Sunday’s extension. Though the futures of Odell Beckham Jr. and Devin Duvernay remain in question, wide receivers Zay Flowers, Rashod Bateman, and Tylan Wallace remain under contract for 2024.

The contracts of Pro Bowl right guard Kevin Zeitler, running back Gus Edwards, safety Geno Stone, and cornerback Rock Ya-Sing are still scheduled to void on Monday afternoon. Those voids would count for just over $8 million in dead money on the 2024 cap.
