Eagles have inquired with Bills about trade for RB LeSean McCoy

Jay Ajayi is out for the season with a torn ACL

Jay Ajayi is out for the season with a torn ACL

With Ajayi done for the season with an ACL injury, and the Eagles offense sputtering - just 5.2 yards per play, 25th in the National Football League, compared to last year's 5.6, which placed 8th - perhaps it's time for the Eagles to get creative. McCoy has a cap hit of $8.95 million this season and $9.05 next season. With such glaring issues at the running back position, doesn't trading for Bell make flawless sense?

It's dot-connecting season in the NFL.

The team was fairly cap strapped, but with Fletcher Cox's contract reworked, the Eagles now have about $11 million in cap space, according to Spotrac.

In La Canfora's report, he indicated that Pittsburgh was "hopeful" of getting a draft pick higher than the third round in exchange for Bell and of being able to ship him to the NFC, if anywhere. This year he's been banged up on a bad Bills team, rushing for just 170 yards in four games.

The season, and possibility the entire tenure with the Eagles, is now over for Ajayi, who is in the past year of his contract.

Ajayi was reportedly injured in the Eagles' 23-21 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Not only did they lose the NFC Championship rematch at home, but they also lost their starting running back, Jay Ajayi. Players at that position now without a contract include Mike Gillislee, Orleans Darkwa, Terrance West and Christine Michael. At 2-3, there is some panic in the City of Brotherly Love that there is a Super Bowl hangover. Or will elder statesman Darren Sproles come back soon and usurp everyone?
