Jay Ajayi traded to the Eagles…. what are the Dolphins thinking?

The Miami Dolphins have traded running back Jay Ajayi to the Philadelphia Eagles for a fourth-round pick, it was announced Tuesday.

The NFL’s trade deadline is 4 p.m. ET Tuesday.

Ajayi has rushed 138 times for 465 yards (3.4 average) over seven games for the Dolphins this season. He is coming off a big 2016 campaign in which he racked up more than 1,200 yards (4.9 per carry) with eight touchdowns. (ESPN).


Okay, what in God’s name is going on in the NFL? First, Jimmy Garoppolo is traded from the Patriots to the 49ers, and that made no sense in the world. Who the hell is going to be the backup QB in New England? I mean, Tom Brady is a God, but still, you never know.

But besides the point, the Miami Dolphins just traded their 24 year old Running back to the 7-1 Philadelphia Eagles. Yes, I understand the Dolphins were getting frustrated with Ajayi, but the kid is 24 and already proven to be a top running back at times in this league. When he is on his game, he is one of the best RB’s out there.

But, if you’re Miami what are you even thinking? Like you have no offense to begin with. At least Ajayi has the ability to take any given run or pass to the house, he could give you a spark at any point in the game. Football is all about momentum and if Ajayi breaks one, then the Dolphins whole offense can break out of its slump. There was no reason to trade Jay Ajayi for a 4th round pick!!!!!

For the Eagles, they hit a homerun. They are arguably the best team in the NFL, with the best record. They now have a great backfield with Jay Ajayi and Legarrette Blount. The Eagles are really going all in to try and win their first Superbowl in franchise history, and with the way Carson Wentz is playing, adding Jay Ajayi just helps their chances of getting and winning the Superbowl,

  1. I was wondering the same thing . Just I wondered why my team the New England Patriots would let not one but both of our backup quarterbacks go. In the Patriots case, I’m sure money was involved . As for the Dolphins , might it be a personal thing? The coach doesn’t seem to like him very much, even calling him out but not naming names during a press conference . Wouldn’t you go the Belichek route and send him to a lousy team? But you send him to the Eagles?! That sounds like some real personal crap to me, just saying .
