Philadelphia Eagles preparing for a blockbuster trade?

Philadelphia Eagles preparing for a blockbuster trade?

You have to think this is the last we've seen of Ajayi as an Eagle. That fact gave all the more intrigue to reports earlier this month that Bell was planning to report by Week 7, just over a week before that date, which could give the Eagles time to swing a deal.

McCoy spent his first six seasons with the Eagles before he was traded by Chip Kelly.

After the news of Ajayi's injury came down on Monday afternoon, Derrick Gunn of NBCS Philadelphia reported that while the Eagles have been connected to Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell, don't be surprised if they inquire on Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson.

The former Boise State star is out for the season with a torn ACL, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Further Australian support following the Sulawesi quake and tsunami
The national disaster agency said the confirmed death toll from last Friday's magnitude 7.5 quake increased slightly to 1,571. Many hundreds of people are now entombed in slowly drying mud churned with heaps of debris and vehicles.

Robertson: Title race not just between Liverpool and City
We were close, more than ever to winning here but it is better than last season and we compete really really good. I liked it, but if you want to win against City, you have to use a few of these half-chances.

Is a diplomatic row awaiting Turkey-Saudi ties?
Turkish officials said Mr Khashoggi was killed on the premises and his body was then removed. Turkey's foreign ministry on Wednesday summoned Saudi Arabia's ambassador over the issue.

However, this silences that scenario for the time being with Philadelphia looking in another direction with their running back position that already has other injuries with Darren Sproles dealing with a nagging hamstring issue while Corey Clement is on the mend with quad problems.

Adding either Johnson or Bell would take a serious hit to the Eagles payroll this year and beyond.

Not too long after Ajayi was ruled out for the year, Howie Roseman and the Eagles front office got to work on the cap space situation. It indicates that they are most likely making a move for a running back.

Imagine LeSean McCoy coming back to Philly.
