Another RB?

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens Patrick McDermott-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles hosted free agent running back Terrance West on a visit at the NovaCare Complex today, according to a report from The Baltimore Sun’s Jeff Zrebiec.

West, 27, was originally selected by the Browns (who traded up to get him) at pick No. 94 overall in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He played 14 games with Cleveland before they traded him to the Titans after his rookie year. West only lasted two games with Tennessee before being cut and claimed on waivers by the Ravens in 2015. He’s remained with Baltimore until becoming a free agent this offseason.

In 43 NFL games played, West has logged 23 starts. He’s logged 465 rushing attempts for 1,816 yards (3.9 average) and 11 rushing touchdowns. As a pass-catcher, West has 51 receptions for 344 yards (6.7 average) and two scores. West also has seven career fumbles to his name.

The Eagles already have three running backs who are locks to make the 2018 roster: Jay Ajayi, Darren Sproles, and Corey Clement. Then they have the likes of Josh Adams, Wendell Smallwood, and Donnel Pumphrey potentially competing for a fourth spot. Adding West would give the Eagles a veteran presence to compete with those young players.

Based on recent history, it seems like the Eagles have signed most of the free agents they’ve brought in for visits. So, while nothing is official yet, don’t be surprised if West ends up being an Eagle.


In other Eagles running back news, free agent Kenjon Barner is reportedly visiting the Buffalo Bills today.
