Eagles fans night find it hard to swallow, but former Cowboys exec was one of the best in the business, and he still trains his impartial eye for NFL.com.
Here’s his latest:
I’m bullish on Miles Sanders’ chances to become the first bell-cow back of the Doug Pederson era, but if something were to happen to him, the Eagles could be in trouble.
The cupboard currently looks awfully bare when it comes to potential replacements, with Boston Scott, Corey Clement and Elijah Holyfield positioned as the top three backups.
Carlos Hyde could have been an option, but he signed with Seattle. Devonta Freeman remains a possibility, but the former Atlanta starter might have salary demands that are too rich for the Eagles’ blood.
LeSean McCoy says he would love to return to his former team, but the fact that he was a healthy scratch for Kansas City in last year’s playoffs raises questions about how much he has left in the tank.
It might make sense to kick the tires on Lamar Miller, who is progressing in his rehab from reconstructive knee surgery.
