31 October 2017 Eagles News
Just when you thought Eagles General Manager Howie Roseman would stop shocking the NFL world, he has done it again.
From out of nowhere, the Eagles have announced they have traded a 2018 fourth-round pick in exchange for Miami Dolphin’s pro bowl running back Jay Ajayi.

Ajayi, who is coming off a year which saw him rush for 1,272 yards and eight touchdowns, is struggling to get his game going this season. So far, Ajayi has rushed for 465 yards this season. However, he has shown flashes of his ability, but with Ryan Tannehill out, teams are stacking the box and making it hard to run.
Ajayi immediately comes to Philadelphia and gives them a dynamic running back, which they have not had since LeSean McCoy. He is going to get the majority of the rushing attempts and he is going to thrive in the Eagles offense. For only a fourth-round pick, the Eagles got a steal.
