With Ajayi done for the season with an ACL injury, and the Eagles offense sputtering - just 5.2 yards per play, 25th in the National Football League, compared to last year's 5.6, which placed 8th - perhaps it's time for the Eagles to get creative.
Ajayi, in his team's loss to Minnesota on Sunday, carried the ball just eight times for 29 yards.
For now, Corey Clement and Wendell Smallwood are expected to pick up the slack for Ajayi, but a more dominant tailback would help the struggling Eagles (2-3) more.
Eagles executive Howie Roseman loves to make a deal, highlighted by last year's trade with Miami for Ajayi after Darren Sproles tore his ACL. It indicates that they are most likely making a move for a running back. And what if the Eagles pull off a similar move they made past year by trading for a running back? Players at that position now without a contract include Mike Gillislee, Orleans Darkwa, Terrance West and Christine Michael.
