The Philadelphia Distract Attorney will not charge Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor for sexual assault after an investigation found insufficient evidence.

“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,” the statement said via Ian Rapoport of NFL.com “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 was accused of sexual assault by a dancer at Cheerleaders, a strip club in South Philadelphia. Along with Agholor, teammates Fletcher Cox and Connor Barwin went to the club after the last practice of off-season minicamp. 

Cox and Barwin both said that they left the club before the alleged incident took place. 

Agholor played 13 games, including 12 starts, for the Eagles as a rookie last season, recording 23 receptions for 283 yards and one touchdown.
