The Philadelphia Eagles will finally solve their RB issues in 2021 (we hope).
Three things will always be true about time. It can’t be replaced. Breaks seem to be the fastest part of the workday, and the older one becomes, it seems to both fly by and stand completely still. That’s especially true if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan.
Though it seems like it’s been two years since Philly laid down in the second half for the Washington Football Team and almost incited a riot and a year and a half since this team drafted DeVonta Smith, more than half of the 2021 calendar year is behind us and training camp approaches.
Much has been said about this team’s needs at wide receiver, but every year, running back depth has also been a topic of conversation. They just can’t seem to come up with any long-term answers, and they keep kicking the tires on guys that they love but clearly have nothing left that they can offer physically. See Darren Sproles, Corey Clement, Jay Ajayi, and Jordan Howard if you need some reference.
Once upon a time, this team had Brian Westbrook, Duce Staley, and Correl Buckhalter all at once, and even though we’re only a little over three years removed from a backfield that featured LeGarrette Blount, Jay Ajayi, and Corey Clement (when he was still pretty good), more often than not, all we’re talking about with this team is the fact that they, for whatever reason, never seem to have enough horses.
Hopefully, the leadership will get it right this time. Here’s a look at who the guys are that they’ll take into training camp.
