Miami Dolphins Trade Jay Ajayi to Philadelphia Eagles for 4th Round Pick

In a move that shows that the Philadelphia Eagles are looking to win a Super Bowl now, the team acquired disgruntled running back Jay Ajayi from the Miami Dolphins for a 4th round pick. Ajayi had become a bit mercurial for Dolphins head coach Adam Gase’s taste, so the team decided to trade away one of its best offensive players for just a 4th round pick. Miami will move forward with Damien Williams as the lead back, while Philadelphia will make Ajayi a true RB!, while LeGarrette Blount and others take a complementary role.
