NFL Insider Adam Caplan reports the Eagles have interest in free agent RB Carlos Hyde.
Specifically, Caplan said, "They want to sign a veteran running back ... The guy that I know they have some interest in, and we’ll see if it happens, is a guy that’s really, really talented ... The Eagles, I’m told, have interest in him ... I’m told Hyde is a guy they’re targeting." The presence of Hyde would limit Miles Sanders' projected three-down role. The Eagles drafted Sanders with the No. 53 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft. Sanders more than met expectations as a rookie, racking up 1,327 yards from scrimmage and six touchdowns despite splitting plenty of work with early-drown grinder Jordan Howard. Unfortunately, the presence of Hyde would reduce Sanders' projected touch count to the 10-15 range per game as opposed to flirting with 20-combined carries and targets on a week-to-week basis.
