Eagles Notes: Eagles Bring Back 3, Non-Tender Boston Scott
The Eagles are not tendering a contract to running back Boston Scott, making him a free agent, according to Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia.
Per Zangaro, there is a chance the Eagles bring him back, as he would have made $2.43 million on even the lowest tender, so the team might try and bring him back at a lower price point for the 2022 season.
Scott has been a nice find for the Eagles, filling in at running back over the past four seasons. He has appeared in 45 games for the Eagles in his four seasons, running for 992 yards and 13 touchdowns, catching 62 passes for 499 yards.
Earlier in the day, the team extended a right of first refusal tender to restricted free agent Nate Herbig. Herbig has been a solid contributor as a reserve and spot starter since joining the team in 2020.
The fact that they brought back Herbig at the $2.43 million price tage, shows you how much they value that position, over running back and linebacker.
At linebacker, they decided to non-tender Alex Singleton, their leading tackler their past two seasons, rather than pay him the RFA tender amount of $2.433 million.
Two other players the team is bringing back are wide receiver Greg Ward and defensive back Andre Chachere.
