Eagles met with Alabama RB Jahmyr Gibbs at NFL Combine
For the first time since 2019, the Philadelphia Eagles could be in the market for a running back in the early rounds of the NFL draft.
Pro Bowl running back Miles Sanders is a free agent and may have priced himself out of Howie Roseman’s range with his breakout season. Boston Scott is also a free agent and could have suitors on the open market as well.
There’s been talk of Philadelphia having eyes for Texas running back Bijan Robinson, but the most logical fit could be a dual-threat running back from Alabama.
Jahmyr Gibbs has been mocked tock the Eagles for weeks now and if he’s still on the board, he could be the guy to replace Sanders on a rookie contract.
While at the NFL combine, Gibbs met with Philadelphia brass according to Joe Castro.

Gibbs led the Crimson Tide with 926 yards on 151 rushing attempts for 6.1 yards per carry as well as seven touchdowns.
A dynamic dual threat that plays similarly to Alvin Kamara and Dalvin Cook, Gibbs led Alabama in receptions with 44 for 444 yards and three touchdowns.
