Eagles Could Still Re-Sign Jay Ajayi

Jay Ajayi’s free agency is in a bit of a holding pattern, but it could end with the running back landing with the Eagles. Agent Drew Rosenhaus says he is maintaining discussions with the Eagles about his client, as Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Inquirer tweets

Ajayi recently visited the Colts and Rosenhaus says the meeting went well, even though the two sides left without a deal in place. It could be a little while before Ajayi signs because, as Rosenhaus puts it, he’s expected to be ready for the start of the season, but not much before that point.

Ajayi, 26 in June, is arguably the best back still available on the open market after Le’Veon BellTevin Coleman, and Mark Ingram came off the board during the first week of free agency. The Eagles pursued Coleman, but didn’t sign him, which leaves a big need in the backfield.

    I can see them bringing him back on a team friendly deal full of incentives and the guy is a best when he plays. But it’s a shame that a guy so young has such bad knees he’s pretty much done and I don’t want to see them bank on a guy that is so unreliable physically.

      Me too sort of, but you can’t bank on how many games they’ll get him for or if he’ll even be able to go in the playoffs if they get that far.
