The Raiders went on the offensive Saturday in the second wave of free agency, agreeing to terms with wide receiver and former Berkeley Prep standout Nelson Agholor and guard Erik Kush, according to multiple reports.
This comes after opening free agency with seven signings, five on defense, as the Raiders remain one of the NFL’s busiest teams in terms of upgrading their roster heading in to this year’s draft.
Agholor, a first-round (No. 20 overall) pick out of USC in 2015, caught 224 passes for 2,515 yards in five seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. Agholor, who turns 27 on May 24, had 39 catches for 363 yards and a career-low 9.3 yards per catch in 11 games last season, which was marred by a knee injury that kept him out of five of the last six games of the regular season.
Terms of his deal with the Raiders were unavailable, but ESPN reported the contract was for one season.
Kush, who turns 31 in September, is a well-traveled guard who played in all 16 games last year for the Cleveland Browns with seven starts. He was a sixth-round draft pick out of California (Pa.) by the Chiefs in 2013 but has also played for the Buccaneers, Rams and Bears.
