Eagles trade for Dolphins running back Ajayi

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

Originally a fifth-round draft choice of the Dolphins in 2015 (149th overall), Ajayi has played in 31 games (19 starts) and has carried 447 times for 1,924 yards and 9 TDs. Additionally, he has registered 48 career receptions for 308 yards.

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

Over the course of the season, Ajayi registered three 200-yard rushing games, becoming just the fourth player in NFL history to accomplish the feat.

His 200-yard games earned him three AFC Offensive Player of the Week awards and he was named Miami’s 2016 Dan Marino Most Valuable Player.
