Jay Ajayi traded from Dolphins to Eagles, giving Philadelphia RB depth

Jay Ajayi Reportedly Traded to Eagles from Dolphins for 4th-Round Draft Pick

According to multiple reports, the Eagles made a deal early Tuesday to acquire Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi, a former Frisco Liberty star.

The 24-year-old Ajayi has rushed for 465 yards this season on 138 carries, but has been held out of the end zone.

As the trade deadline approaches on Tuesday, the Eagles will be expected to make more moves. He has seen his rushing average drop from 4.9 yards per game in 2016 to 3.4 this season. Wentz himself is a running threat, and there are also talented and underrated backs in Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement. The Eagles own the NFL's fifth-ranked run offense, earning 129.2 yards per game on 30.8 rush attempts.

The move comes after last Thursday's 40-0 embarrassing loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

We're guessing the timing wasn't a coincidence. "Do your job. It's not hard to do".

Ajayi also joined the likes of O.J. Simpson, Earl Campbell and Ricky Williams as the only running backs in National Football League history to rush for over 200 yards in consecutive games, rushing for 204 yards against the Steelers in Week 6 and 214 yards against the Bills in Week 7.

The Dolphins likely will turn to second-year running back Kenyan Drake as their starter.
