Jay Ajayi Wants To Return To Workhouse Role 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu May 31, 2018 12:43 pm

Jay Ajayi wants to be a workhouse for the Philadelphia Eagles next season.

The Eagles acquired Ajayi from the Miami Dolphins at midseason in 2017. He split time with LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement as the team rolled toward a Super Bowl title.

Blount left in free agency, but Darren Sproles is back after an ACL injury. The Eagles also have Wendell Smallwood, Donnel Pumphrey and Matt Jones on the roster.

"Obviously, things have gotten a little shaken up in our room," Ajayi said. "I'm excited to get into that lead role, do what's needed of me and just go bull. It was kind of a year and a half removed from being 'the guy.' So I'm excited to kind of get back in that role and showcase again to the world what I can do."

Ajayi is entering the final year of his rookie deal.

Wow, totally forgot the Eagles have Sproles too......Carson Wentz is going to have huge huge huge numbers this year.
Not looking good for my Rams....we'll probably have to get past them in the NFC championship.....oh boy.
