    Latavius Murray posted an Instagram working out with Wentz. It's widely expected that Oakland will not re-sign him. I'd love to sign him and focus the draft elsewhere.

    I'm down latavius Murray depending on the price, I'm also fine with going into the season with the RBs as is (minus Mathews that is). This offseason id prefer Eagles to focus on filling WR, CB, maybe OL and interior DL (if Logan leaves). Hb could be had in draft or next season imo, I also wanna see what Smallwood could do on a consistent basis and with a better OL

    I'm cool with this too. Running backs are a dime a dozen. I really liked that guy who played for us vs. the Cowboys in Week 17. Runs hard as hell. Would love to see him get a shot.

    Terrell Watson? That boy was a bulldozer.. Kinda reminded me a bit of Brandon jacobs back in the day for the Giants, looking at film on him from college makes him look faster than jacobs tho. He came outta nowhere in that game too, I really wasn't expecting it.. Haha his stats from that game weren't super impressive but he had some hard runs that game.

    To see him Marshall and Smallwood split carries this year might not be a bad thing tbh, especially if the Eagles add to the OL. If it doesn't work out they can always address the position next year

    Idk if I buy that the bills will release shady. They might but also might not, he was good last year and I think deserves the money he's owed. If they do release him, won't he be the best RB on the market? Would be interesting to see if the Eagles pursue him or not

    To say that we shouldn't draft a RB in the 1st rd is insane to me! If Cook is the BPA at 14 or 15 you draft him. Same can be said of Mike Williams and Corey Davis. If you look at Florida St OLine this year they are average at best. I think they will have maybe a tackle get drafted in the mid round. What Cook has accomplished this season is phenomenal. He's durable and he is a workhorse. In this offense Cook can easily be a 20+ carries and 4-5 receptions back a game guy. If you want a 'play maker, game changer guy' Cook is just that. I didn't mention Fournette bc he will most likely be drafted in top 8 or higher. I for one will be ecstatic if we draft Cook!

    The real question you should be asking is would you mind seeing some salsa dancing after TDs?

    Lol! I don't think any of us want an older Shady back. Hell, there's even reports of the Chiefs cutting J-Mac. Just bring the the whole team back. And Nick Foles. And Chip Kelly.

    I'd gladly take McCoy, Maclin, and Foles back.

    For real.
