In case you missed it, the Philadelphia Eagles made a big deal with the Miami Dolphins prior to the NFL trade deadline on Tuesday. The Eagles acquired a new lead running back by the name of Jay Ajayi. He’s pretty good.
But don’t just take my word for it. Check out this highlights video that shows his speed, power, and elusiveness. (Warning: music NSFW).
It’s really exciting to think the 7-1 Eagles are adding this guy to their offense. Philadelphia already ranks fifth in rush yards per game without having a true No. 1 full-time back. The addition of Ajayi has the potential to make the Eagles offense even more dangerous.
For more on Ajayi, check out this great film breakdown our friend Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) of Houston Texans SB Nation site Battle Red Blog put together. You can watch it below (click here if you can’t see the video).
