By only trading a fourth-round pick in return for Ajayi, the Eagles were able to hold on to all of their top picks, plus with the team already owning three picks in the fourth round for 2018, it's nearly as if they gave up nothing to the Dolphins. A third-year pro, Ajayi has played in 31 career games with 19 starts and totaled 447 carries for 1,924 yards (4.3 avg.) and nine rushing touchdowns.
"We gotta stop trying to hit the home runs all the time", said Gase. Just $760,000, meaning the addition of Ajayi will have essentially no impact on their ability to re-sign their own players this offseason.
A 2015 fifth-round pick out of Boise State, Ajayi is 6-foot and 223 pounds. The Eagles now have a 7-1 record and are in first place of the NFC East.
Netflix Is Already Developing a New House of Cards Without Kevin Spacey
House of Cards , on which Spacey serves as exec producer, has been one of the standout hits for Netflix since its debut in 2013. He also spoke publicly for the first time about being gay, which draw backlash from some observers as an attempt at deflection.
Ajayi joins a backfield in Philadelphia that also includes offseason acquisition LeGarrette Blount.
Ajayi also joined the likes of O.J. Simpson, Earl Campbell and Ricky Williams as the only running backs in National Football League history to rush for over 200 yards in consecutive games, rushing for 204 yards against the Steelers in Week 6 and 214 yards against the Bills in Week 7. Not only does it help the team for this season, but it could also help the Eagles in the future as well.
