General manager Mike Mayock of the Las Vegas Raiders has let his desire be known that he’d like wide receiver Nelson Agholor back for another year.

Agholor signed a one-year deal with the Raiders last season for a little over $1 million, with a $137,500 signing bonus.

In return, he’s had his best season yet in the NFL.

Last season, Agholor caught 48 passes for a career-high 896 yards and eight touchdowns. He averaged 18.7 yards per reception with the Raiders last season, compared to 11.2 yards per receptions during his five seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles.

“Nelly’s one of my favorite people in the whole world,” Mayock said in his press conference. “What he brought to the Raiders last year was off the charts. He brought a work ethic, a toughness, he brought the young guys along with him, and he brought productivity and trust with our quarterback.”

Mayock also told his desire to bring back Agholor to the Raiders.

“We’d love to have Nelly back,” Agholor said. “That’s a guy that I can’t tell you how much appreciation I have for.”

Agholor was effective on the field last season, helping fill the hole rookie wide receiver Henry Ruggs III left as he had a struggling start to his career.

Agholor alongside tight end Darren Waller were the two effective targets for the Raiders last season.

The Raiders should resign Agholor.
