What are the expectations for Boston Scott in the 2020 Philadelphia Eagles’ training camp?
Eagles fans should see more of Boston Scott than Miles Sanders in the preseason, but they likely won’t see much of either of those guys. Scott is coming into this season as one of the key playmakers Philly will utilize out of the backfield, and there is no sense in risking injury with him.
General manager Howie Roseman ultimately didn’t make a move for a veteran running back in the offseason and didn’t draft anyone either. Philly brought back Corey Clement and signed two undrafted free agents who have potential. Even still, it’s evident that he wants to see more of Boston Scott for a full season.
Scott has been in the Eagles scheme for over a year now. If there are no preseason games due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he’ll probably get a lot of reps in training camp, as a runner and receiver, and he can participate on special teams with all of the new faces on offense. Pederson and the offense will need the guys with experience in the offense to be ready to go out there on opening day.
