Nelson Agholor’s No. 17 jersey will now be worn by new Eagles wide receiver, Alshon Jeffery. Agholor will now wear No. 13.

Agholor, 23, has struggled in his first two seasons as an Eagle. He was the team’s 20th overall pick in the 2015 draft. The Eagles signed Jeffery to a one-year deal. 94WIP’s Ike Reese believes the number switch could help the former USC receiver.
