The Eagles worked out USC receiver Nelson Agholor in Tampa. The QB throwing was Former Bucs QB Josh Freeman.

Freeman’s NFL career rests on rocky soil, but the former first-round pick offers good size — he’s 6-foot-6, 240 pounds — with plus athleticism. It’s just everything else that’s been the problem. Freeman was signed last April by the Giants only to be released six weeks later. His commitment to the game has been questioned.

Freeman threw 27 touchdowns to just 17 picks for Tampa Bay in 2012, but that feels like eons ago. He was cut by the Bucs in 2013, only to reappear with the Vikings weeks later for one hyper-messy prime-time start — his last in the NFL. Freeman desperately needs strong coaching if he’s to turn his career around.
