Report: RB Devonta Freeman has Attracted Interest from Eagles
About a week ago, NFL insider Adam Caplan from InsidetheBirds.com reported the Eagles "want to sign a veteran running back" and mentioned veteran running back Carlos Hyde as a potential target.
Caplan also mentioned two other veterans, Devonta Freeman and LeSean McCoy as long-shots to be targeted.
Today Caplan reports the Seahawks made an offer to Freeman. a one-year, $4 million contract, which he declined in search of a better offer.
Could that offer come from the Eagles?
According to NFL.com reporter Mike Silver the Eagles and Jets are two teams that Freeman has attracted interest from.
However as Caplan notes, Freeman might be out of the Eagles price range, as the team isn't looking to spend more than the minimum to bring a veteran in with Miles Sanders entrenched as the teams lead running back.
"They want to get a guy like 5-to-8 carries," Caplan explained if the Eagles add a veteran running back during Football at Four on The Sports Bash. "The issue that Freeman has, is he has a significant injury history. One thing they like from Freeman over Hyde is Freeman is way better at catching the football."
We'll discuss this in more detail with Adam Caplan on Thursday edition of 'Football at Four' at 4 p.m. on The Sports Bash.
