Dolphins Trade Jay Ajayi To Philly

  • Jay Ajayi Reportedly Traded to Eagles from Dolphins for 4th-Round Draft Pick

Former Boise State All-American running back Jay Ajayi was traded from the Miami Dolphins to the Philadelphia Eagles for a fourth-round draft pick, on Tuesday morning. 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. The Eagles made the announcement on Tuesday.

Ajayi joins a backfield in Philadelphia that also includes offseason acquisition LeGarrette Blount. Not only does it help the team for this season, but it could also help the Eagles in the future as well.

The move comes after last Thursday's 40-0 embarrassing loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

"We've got to stop trying to hit home runs all the time", Gase said. "That's on the running back".

The Eagles have already been one of the most thrilling teams in the National Football League through the first eight weeks of the season. He is signed through the 2018 season, so he has one year left on his deal.

In a surprise move, the Fins dumped Ajayi in favor of a fourth-round pick, according to CBS4 news partner The Miami Herald.

The Dolphins likely will turn to second-year running back Kenyan Drake as their starter.
