Ajayi done for season with reported torn ACL

Ajayi done for season with reported torn ACL

The Eagles placed running back Jay Ajayi on injured reserve Monday after he suffered a torn ACL in Philadelphia's Week 5 loss to the Vikings, leaving the door open for Bell to fill the void if a deal were to be negotiated. He was a criticial part of the Eagles' run to Super Bowl LII, tallying 217 yards on 58 rushing attempts in the playoffs.

Le'Veon Bell solves three problems, instantly: Pass protection (good), pass catching (great), rushing (great).

So many are thinking the best move for the Eagles is to trade for Bell especailly after they restructured Fletcher Cox's contract. It's unclear if the Bill will trade him as he has two years left on his Bills contract. He was a key contributor to the team's first Super Bowl victory a year ago.

The new deal creates $6.5 million more cap space for the Eagles this season and $11.7 million more for next season.

McCoy was of course drafted by the Eagles in 2009, and spent his first six National Football League seasons there. Those players include Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood, Darren Sproles and Josh Adams, all of whom have already seen playing time this season. Nothing is official sine the Eagles have been denying just about every report that emerges, but here are four names that have been rumored, whether it happens to be from actual reports or simply just an idea that seems like it would work. Or, of course, they could try to pursue trades for other, cheaper running backs or simply sign an existing free agent.
