While the Baltimore Ravens remain unsure who their quarterback will be in 2023, they added another offensive weapon on Friday. The team and wide receiver Nelson Agholor agreed on a one-year deal, the Score reported. Agholor's base salary will be $3.25 million, but incentives could make it $6.25 million.

The Ravens placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on QB Lamar Jackson, but no team has stepped up to offer Jackson a contract. Baltimore could match any offer sheet Jackson signs or choose to let him go and receive two first-round draft choices.

Agholor spent the past two seasons with the New England Patriots. Last season, he caught 31 passes for 362 yards and two touchdowns. His best seasons came with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2017 (62-768-8) and 2018 (64-736-4). Agholor also helped the Eagles defeat the Patriots in Super Bowl LII.

The Ravens have struggled to find consistent receiving production the past couple of seasons. Earlier this month, Rashod Bateman called out general manager Eric DeCosta on Twitter for comments DeCosta made regarding the lack of output from Baltimore's receivers.

Familiar faces will greet Agholor when he arrives in Baltimore. Ravens quarterback coach Tee Martin was his wide receiver coach at USC, and wide receiver coach Greg Lewis coached Agholor during his time in Philadelphia.
