The Philadelphia Eagles have one of the league top rushers in running back D'Andre Swift.

Swift currently ranks fifth in the NFL in rushing yards with 452 yards in six games. He already has 86 carries through six games, after having just 99 in 14 games last year in Detroit. His career high in carries is just 151 back in 2021 in 13 games.

However, for the past few weeks, during Sal Pal Friday's with ESPN's Sal Paolantonio, he has mentioned that the Eagles need another running back who can be a finisher.

Well an interesting one is available that fits the mold and could help the Eagles.

Free agent Leonard Fournette.

Fournette is a versatile back who is a capable pass-catcher and can handle short yardage and goal line work.

The 28-year old was released by the Bucs in the offseason, but is reported to be in great shape and read yo to play.  He is coming off a year where he split time in Tampa, which is what he would be asked to do here, and had 668 rushing yards and three scores and caught 73 passes for 523 yards and three touchdowns.

It would give the Eagles a different type of back from Swift who is a quick, elusive back, but not a running back that wears down the defense.  The team has essentially used Kenneth Gainwell in that role, and it simply hasn't worked. Free-agent addition Rashad Penny has been inactive most games, so kicking the tires on Fournette could make sense.

Its the kind of moves that Howie Roseman has been known to make, adding a veteran player to help during the stretch run.
