The Philadelphia Eagles are waiving running back Josh Adams, according to a report from NFL insider Mike Garafolo.

Adams was clearly on the outside looking in with the Eagles likely keeping Jordan Howard, Miles Sanders, Darren Sproles, and Corey Clement.

Still, Adams is a noteworthy cut considering he actually led the team in rushing last year. It’s hard to believe that’s a real fact but it really speaks to how bad the Eagles’ running back situation was in 2018.

Adams was a nice story last season. The Warrington, Pennsylvania native signed with the Eaglse as an undrafted rookie free agent. He then got called up from the practice squad early in the season and finished the year with 511 rushing yards and three touchdowns.

It’s clear the Eagles needed to replace Adams in 2019, though, due to fumbling issues and a lack of pass catching skills.

Reports out of New York indicate the Jets — with Joe Douglas now in charge of personnel — could put a waiver claim in on Adams.
