Dolphins Trade RB Jay Ajayi to Eagles for Fourth-Round Pick

Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi has reportedly been traded to Eagles for a 4th-round pick

The Miami Dolphins traded running back Jay Ajayi to the Philadelphia Eagles, according to multiple media reports.

The Dolphins will get a 2018 fourth–round draft pick in return.

Ajayi, 24, led the Dolphins with 465 yards this season, but has not scored a rushing touchdown and is only averaging 3.4 yards a carry.

Ajayi joins an Eagles backfield that has featured LeGarrette Blount and Wendell Smallwood and adds to an already solid rushing attack.
