Eagles Hosting RB Jay Ajayi For Visit


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Eagles are scheduled to host free agent RB Jay Ajayi for a visit on Friday. 

Ajayi spent the offseason recovering from a torn ACL that ended his 2018 season. However, he’s reportedly healthy and ready to find another opportunity. 

The Cardinals and Lions have both worked out Ajayi in recent weeks. 

The Eagles are dealing with a few injuries at running back to RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) and RB Darren Sproles (quadricep).

Ajayi, 26, is a former fifth-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2015. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2.5 million contract and made a base salary of $1.9 million for the 2018 season. 

The Eagles acquired Ajayi in a trade with the Dolphins that sent a 2018 fourth-round pick to Miami. He has been a free agent since March. 

In 2018, Ajayi has appeared in four games for the Eagles and rushed for 184 yards on 45 carries (4.1 YPC) to go along with five receptions for 20 yards receiving and three touchdowns.
