Forget Carson Wentz and Zach Ertz, two remnants of Eagles greatness, who are gone and soon-to-be-gone, respectively.
The Eagles have a big talent gap in the backfield:
Top backs: Miles Sanders ($1.46 million), Jason Huntley ($780,000.
Sanders, entering his third season, is currently the only viable returning runner in Nick Sirianni’s arsenal, with Huntley, Elijah Holyfield and their six touches projected as his backups.
That helps explain why the Eagles reportedly tendered Boston Scott, an exclusive rights free agent after logging 105 touches and 586 scrimmage yards.
Even so, the Eagles need further reinforcements at running back, either through the draft or in free agency, where Marlon Mack, Sirianni’s RB in Indianapolis, will be available.
