Jay Ajayi Traded to the Eagles and Philadelphia is Going All-in for the Super Bowl

Ajayi joins a backfield in Philadelphia that also includes offseason acquisition LeGarrette Blount.

Something to keep in mind about Ajayi trade: Dolphins don't believe he has much left in his knees.

The trade for Ajayi could prove crucial for the rest of this season, and by only trading a fourth-round pick, the team isn't mortgaging their future in an attempt to make a Super Bowl run. Ajayi has struggled mightily this season as a member of Miami, but most of the blame can be given to the poor offensive line since he hasn't shown the knack for making the explosive plays like he did previous year. This is no ordinary season for the Eagles, and the trade for Jay Ajayi proved it.

The team's workload at the position has come from LeGarrett Blount, who has had a fine season.

Ajayi, who has 138 carries for a disappointing 465 yards for the Miami Dolphins this season, was traded for a fourth-round pick in next years NFL Draft, according to a tweet from the Eagles. He has seen his rushing average drop from 4.9 yards per game in 2016 to 3.4 this season.

Philadelphia has no shortage of depth in their running game, but the offensive line is starting to fall apart due to injuries, as evidenced by Carson Wentz's struggles in Sunday's win over the San Francisco 49ers.

"I think relying a little bit more on the run game to help the quarterback", Pederson said when asked in what ways he's improved as a head coach, "and it takes the pressure off a little bit".
