Eagles To Bring Back RB Boston Scott

Despite being non-tendered as a restricted free agent, Boston Scott is back with the Eagles. They are re-signing the veteran running back on a one-year deal, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com tweets.

A valued backup in Philly for years, Scott will collect $1.75MM on this contract — one that could be worth up to $2.25MM. Scott will receive $1.1MM guaranteed, per Pelissero. This salary checks in slightly below the low-end RFA tender amount.

Selected in the 2018 sixth round by the Saints, Scott has only seen game action as an Eagle in the pros. He has played 45 games with the team and played a role on the Eagles’ No. 1-ranked rushing attack last season. Scott scored a career-high seven rushing touchdowns in 2021, a season in which he compiled 373 ground yards.

Scott also helped the Eagles secure the 2019 NFC East title, filling in for Miles Sanders at points that season. The Eagles now have Scott, Sanders and Jordan Howard signed for the 2022 season.
