Eagles’ Jay Ajayi feels like the forgotten RB in NFC East

Saquon Barkley is on his way to being named Prince of New York. Ezekiel Elliott has been hyped as a potential league-leading rusher in 2018. Heck, even the Washington Redskins’ remade backfield with rookie Derrius Guice and Chris Thompson has earned high praise this offseason.With the rest of the running backs in the division earning headlines, Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl-winning running back Jay Ajayi feels like the forgotten man in the NFC East.”Obviously, those guys get a lot of the publicity,” Ajayi said, via the Philly Daily News. “I’m ready to showcase again to the world who I am as a running back. At the end of the day, I do feel like the world’s forgotten about the kind of player that I [am] when I’m playing at the best of my ability and the kind of things I can do on the football thing. I’m excited to go back out there and do that. Especially given the role that I should be in this year and what they’re saying.”The type of player Ajayi can be is a bulldozing runner with power between the tackles and speed on the edge.Last season, Ajayi struggled in seven games with the Miami Dolphins (averaging 3.4 yards per carry). After a midseason trade to the Eagles, the 25-year-old split reps with LeGarrette Blount. In limited snaps, he earned 5.8 yards per carry on 70 totes and 10 receptions for 91 yards with Philly.With Blount gone, Ajayi believes he can get back to being the workhorse he was in 2016 when he ranked fourth in the NFL in rushing with 1,272 yards.
