Eagles Called Bills About LeSean McCoy

Share

The Philadelphia Eagles placed running back Jay Ajayi on injured reserve on Monday.

McCoy, 30, spent his first six seasons in Philadelphia rushing for at least 1,000 in four of those.

McCoy has two seasons remaining on his deal.

Although the Eagles didn't specify the injury, Ajayi tore his ACL and will miss the rest of the season, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

It helped that the Eagles had already been linked to Bell, in large part because of a late-September report from Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Philadelphia could certainly fit the latter part of the bill, and the team was willing to trade a fourth-round pick to the Dolphins previous year for a lesser back in Ajayi.

Ajayi was reportedly injured in the Eagles' 23-21 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. And what if the Eagles pull off a similar move they made a year ago by trading for a running back?

We used the tweet from Eagles writer Jimmy Kempski because just after sending this he tweeted (and deleted) this move could give credence to rumors about Philadelphia being interested in a trade for Bell.

Imagine LeSean McCoy coming back to Philly. Those players include Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood, Darren Sproles and Josh Adams, all of whom have already seen playing time this season.

The Eagles have restructured defensive tackle Fletcher Cox's contract, which created more cap space for this year ($6.5 million) and next ($11.7 million).
