Not happy with their running game for a team that is 7-1, the Eagles today pulled off a stunner of a move, acquiring Miami Dolphins number one running back Jay Ajayi for a fourth-round pick.
Ajayi has rushed for 465 yards on 138 carries this season — his third with the Dolphins since being selected in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL draft out of Boise State.
In 31 games, Ajayi has rushed for 1,924 yards and nine touchdowns.
It’s a move that sounds like the Eagles feel like they are ‘all in’ on going for it this season, and with LeGarrette Blount, the run game has had it’s struggles, and Blount has 467 yards and two scores on the year.
Look for Ajayi to be a force in the run game, and it could be a steal of a trade for the Eagles as they get to the posteason.
