According to ESPN, which first reported the trade, Ajayi fills the Eagles need for a third-down back to replace Darren Sproles, who is out for the season.

Eagles have acquired RB Jay Ajayi from Miami in exchange for a 2018 4th-round pick. The Eagles saw him in the summer during the joint practices with the Dolphins and had to be impressed with Ajayi's hard-charging style between the tackles, his quick feet, and his ability to change direction.

The Philadelphia Eagles have traded a fourth-round pick for Miami Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi. 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 a year ago.

Ajayi is coming off of a solid season in Miami.

The swap came just hours before Tuesday's 4 p.m. ET trade deadline.

The NFL is not messing around ahead of this year's trade deadline. "That's on the running back. It is a great deal for the Eagles now and for the future". LeGarrette Blount is the team's leading rusher with 467 yards. He has 465 rushing yards and only 3.4 yards per carry this season, but he upgrades the Eagles' backfield and gives them a young running back to build around for this season and beyond. In Philadelphia, Ajayi won't have to be the entire offense, as playing with an MVP caliber quarterback in Carson Wentz will let him adjust to his surroundings while still making a few big plays each game. The Eagles (7-1), with the best record in the National Football League, have the fifth-ranked run offense and have won six straight games.
