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

The Dolphins traded running back Jay Ajayi to the Eagles for a fourth-round draft pick, according to multiple reports. This season, Ajayi has gotten a slow start with 465 yards and zero touchdowns.

As the trade deadline approaches on Tuesday, the Eagles will be expected to make more moves.

The Dolphins have struggled on offense all season long, ranking dead last in both total yards (252.4 yards per game) and scoring (13.1 points per game). Running backs Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clements seen their roles increase after 13th-year National Football League veteran Darren Sproles was lost for the season in Week 3 due to an injury.

They brought in former New England Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount late in free agency, a move that has paid mixed dividends for the team; he leads the team with 467 rushing yards this season.


We're guessing the timing wasn't a coincidence.

Last season, Ajayi rushed for more than 1,200 yards and scored eight touchdowns.

He is signed through 2018 on a four-year, $2.5 million contract. In return, the Dolphins will receive a fourth-round pick in the 2018 #NFL Draft. Drake has just 25 rushing yards this season on 10 carries.
