Philadelphia Eagles trade for Jay Ajayi

The Eagles, who have won an NFL-best six in a row, gave up a fourth-round selection in next spring's draft for Ajayi, who made the Pro Bowl past year by rushing for 1,272 yards, fourth-best in the league.

The #Philadelphia Eagles decided they couldn't sit back and watch all of the trade deadline fun happen without them, so they made a decision to swing a deal with their frequent trade partner, the Miami Dolphins, for running back #Jay Ajayi.

Ajayi changes that in a big way as the Eagles jumped into the NFL's deadline-trading frenzy.

Instead, Miami's offense has been awful this season, and the Dolphins are changing their approach.

In addition, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald also claims that Ajayi had not "bought in" to what the Dolphins were trying to accomplish this season, and Jeff Darlington of ESPN suggests that Miami was concerned about Ajayi's knees, claiming they "don't believe he has much left". The deadline is not until 4 p.m. today.

The President in February also rescinded protections put in place under Mr Obama for transgender public school students. They estimated that out of the 1.3 million people on active duty, a few to several thousand were transgender.


The Eagles offense has been decent with their running back committee, but clearly, it wasn't enough. After the 2018 season, he will become a free agent, but if fans have learned one thing this year, it's that young talent is enough to attract star player to the city.

The team's workload at the position has come from LeGarrett Blount, who has had a fine season.

Ajayi, a 24-year-old fifth-round pick out of Boise State, has somewhat struggled this season with pass blocking and is averaging just 3.4 yards per carry.

"I think relying a little bit more on the run game to help the quarterback", Pederson said when asked in what ways he's improved as a head coach, "and it takes the pressure off a little bit".
