Reports: The Dolphins Are Trading Jay Ajayi To The Eagles

We have another blockbuster NFL trade.

The Eagles have acquired a running back.

According to multiple reports, the Miami Dolphins are sending 24-year-old running back Jay Ajayi to Philadelphia in exchange for a draft pick.

The NFC's best team is sending a fourth-round pick back to South Beach for the running back who totaled more than 1,200 rushing yards in 2016.

Ajayi, in his third season out of Boise State, has struggled a little bit this season, totaling 465 yards on 138 carries with no touchdowns.

He goes to an Eagles' team that's playing as well as anyone in the league, though.

Philadelphia's offense ranks third in the NFL in yards and fourth in points per game. He joins an Eagles' backfield that includes LeGarrette Blount.

The NFL's trade deadline is set for 4 p.m. E.T. today.
