So Ajayi has 1 year left (2018) on his rookie contract. I think he also has that 5th year option, but I'm not expert. So he's cheap for the next 2.5 years potentially.

He is a bellcow type runner, but has a right knee issue that has limited him since college (I believe the phrase bone-on-bone was used). He'll probably never truly be a 300-350 carry guy, but in this offense, that makes more sense.

He's an above-average blocker.

His numbers seem neutral. Looks like he is good for a catch or two per week.

i thought they needed an RB. every year you see an average back thrive in the right situation. this team really struck out by not adding that guy in rounds 2-4 of the draft. blount is their best back but he's one-dimensional and his numbers will probably drop with peters out. i had hoped smallwood would produce but he's below-average.

imo pumphrey was a panic move as better backs kept coming off the board before the eagles picked. ajayi isn't much older than most rookies, so i like the move.
