Eagles set for visit with Devonta Freeman

The Eagles are getting Miles Sanders back in the lineup this weekend, but that isn’t going to stop them from taking a look at a possible addition to their running back corps.

The league’s transaction report brings word that Devonta Freeman is set to visit with the Eagles. The visit made the wire on Friday, but the visit will not take place until Freeman goes through COVID-19 testing.

Freeman visited the Jaguars earlier this month, but did not come to terms on a contract. There was also word of Eagles interest in his services during the offseason.

Boston Scott, Corey Clement and Jason Huntley join Sanders in the Eagles backfield.

  1. Should’ve happened in August. Sanders missed whole games and parts of others with injuries last year.

    I like Boston Scott, but he’s a pint sized practice squad player who overachieved at the end of last year. I like Corey Clement, too, but let’s be real; he hasn’t been healthy or effective since the Super Bowl. Huntley seems like a nice pickup, but he just got here after being cut by Detroit. Detroit!!!

    The idea of going into the season with nobody of substance behind Sanders is ridiculous. Howie, work you cap magic and sign Freeman, so he can get hurt in a couple of weeks, too.

  2. Freeman’s a solid player but he’s pricy. The Eagles sucked out loud last week and I expect a better performance against a better team. If the Eagles get punked by the Rams and the olines a mess there’s not much point to bringing in an overpriced RB to save a season. Freeman’s not that guy. He would be a nice addition if the Eagles are competitive.

  3. If freeman is willing to play the backup role and the money is right I like it. Clearly this team has major line issues and why in God’s name doesn’t peterson roll Wentz out of that pocket ???

  4. Big Eagles’ fan here. Been going strong since Gang Green.

    I’m convinced what’s going on with this team boils down to Howie. We have a great team of coaches, and Foles rocked it a few years ago, but aside from that the team has been just okay.

    I was baffled watching that game last week. It was basically a replica of the team that limped into the playoffs with three or four healthy players from the original starting lineup. Wentz is a good quarterback, but Joe Montana in his prime wouldn’t be able to do anything getting sacked eight times. For the second year in a row the team is operating in a skeleton crew.

    It’s possible for NFL guys to stay healthy. Look around. Good teams gave healthy players. For some reason, Howie has the Eagles loaded with aging, injury-probe guys. The data is too clear to suggest otherwise. What in the hell is Jason Peters doing backflips our there? Vinny Curry? Alshon? D-Jax?These guys are brittle has-beens, and it’s Howie’s fault.

    He’s got to go.
