Eagles acquire Pro Bowl running back to bolster backfield

Multiple reports suggest that in addition to Ajayi, the Dolphins are also working to move wide receiver Jarvis Landry for the "right compensation".

Meanwhile, Landry, a second-round pick by the Dolphins, is coming off back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons after going for 758 yards as a rookie.

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

The Philadelphia Eagles have acquired RB Jay Ajayi from the Miami Dolphins in exchange for a fourth-round selection in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Instead, Miami's offense has been awful this season, and the Dolphins are changing their approach.

In 2016, Ajayi earned a Pro Bowl berth after finishing fourth in the National Football League with 1,272 rushing yards, marking the third-highest single-season total in Dolphins' history.

76ers guard Markelle Fultz out indefinitely
This latest news comes after the 76ers revealed Fultz would sit out three games as he dealt with shoulder soreness. Through four games this season, Markelle Fultz had averaged 19 minutes a night for the Philadelphia 76ers .

And it's only 11 a.m.

Move over, NBA. The NFL trading frenzy is catching on. Wentz himself is a running threat, and there are also talented and underrated backs in Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement.

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

The Dolphins have struggled on offense all season long, ranking dead last in both total yards (252.4 yards per game) and scoring (13.1 points per game). The 2016 Pro Bowler has 138 carries for 465 yards through seven games this season.

"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".
