Eagles running back Miles Sanders is having a career year:
1,100 yards, a 5.2 average and 11 touchdowns going into Dallas and his first Pro Bowl selection.
Which comes in handy since his rookie deal is up and he’ll want to get paid bigtime.
The Eagles, like the rest of the NFL, haven’t valued running backs as highly as they once did, and certainly not as highly as wide receivers.
But Sanders, a Penn State alum from Pittsburgh, wants to stay.
When asked the other day about Eagles GM Howie Roseman and his future, Sanders replied:
“He knows I would like to be an Eagle forever.”
