3. Nelson Agholor, Baltimore Ravens

After Meyers, the biggest contract a former Patriot signed with a new team this offseason was Nelson Agholor's.

The Patriots were looking to make wide receiver upgrades this offseason, and they decided to let Agholor walk. That hasn't been nearly as painful as letting Meyers walk.

Long considered a total disappointment in Philly, Agholor turned in a couple respectable seasons in New England. The offense didn't have a ton of volume to feed him, but he was an explosive option.

In Baltimore, he's largely padded his stats in meaningless situations. His 170 yards in five games isn’t terrible, but check out these split:

In two losses, Agholor has a combined 103 yards (51.5 per game).
In three wins, Agholor has a combined 67 yards (22.3 per game).

Losing Agholor hasn't brought anything near the pain that losing Meyers has. Bill doesn't always make savvy moves at wide receiver, but letting Agholor walk was one of them.
