Why Jay Ajayi? Reports saying Dolphins were not happy

Don't expect Dolphins to make any moves prior to trading deadline

The NFL is not messing around ahead of this year's trade deadline.

Ajayi ran for 1,272 yards last season, including three 200-yard games.

The #Philadelphia Eagles decided they couldn't sit back and watch all of the trade deadline fun happen without them, so they chose to swing a deal with their frequent trade partner, the Miami Dolphins, for running back #Jay Ajayi. But this is a guy who went in the top two rounds of many fantasy football drafts this season, so the impact of this trade is worth exploring for both parties involved. He has seen his rushing average drop from 4.9 yards per game in 2016 to 3.4 this season. This season, with Miami's offense in a rut, Ajayi gained 465 yards on 138 carries.

Blockbuster: The #Dolphins are trading RB Jay Ajayi to the #Eagles.

The Eagles, who have won an NFL-best six in a row, gave up a fourth-round selection in next spring's draft for Ajayi, who made the Pro Bowl previous year by rushing for 1,272 yards, fourth-best in the league. The addition of the stud running back gives the team a sense of stability to a position that has been up and down all year, and that stability could last for much longer than just this season.

Sometimes it's not just about where you been. He also caught 27 passes. In Philadelphia, Ajayi won't have to be the entire offense, as playing with an MVP caliber quarterback in Carson Wentz will let him adjust to his surroundings while still making a few big plays each game. But this does change Philly's offensive attack a bit.
