    Philadelphia DA: Eagles wideout Nelson Agholor won't be charged

    Philadelphia district attorney Seth Williams on Monday morning officially announced, citing insufficient evidence, Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor will not be charged with sexual assault stemming from an incident at Cheerleaders Gentlemen's Club on June 6. 

    On Friday, a team source confirmed to CSNPhilly.com's Reuben Frank that charges would not be filed against Agholor, who is entering his second NFL season. 

    Here's the full statement from Williams: 

    The District Attorney’s Family Violence and Sexual Assault Unit and detectives from the Philadelphia Police Department’s Special Victims Unit thoroughly investigated the allegations of sexual assault against Nelson Agholor. As a result of this joint investigation, our staff and the Police reached the conclusion that we lacked sufficient evidence to bring charges against Mr. Agholor, therefore no charges will be filed.

    Agholor, 23, was the Eagles' first-round pick in 2015, but struggled as a rookie with injury and production. He had just 23 catches for 283 yards and a touchdown in 13 games. The announcement Monday comes a week from the start of training camp.
