Brandon Graham to Carson Wentz: ‘Man, I've Been There'

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 on July 25. The first team practice is July 28.
