Jay Ajayi Says Goodbye to Philadelphia

With news breaking that Jordan Howard is being traded to Philadelphia, NFL fans, media, and players are all reacting accordingly. One person who had an immediate reaction to the news was Jay Ajayi, who posted this image to his Instagram Story as soon as news broke.

The peace sign is a giveaway that Ajayi is leaving the Eagles and will be signing with a new team for the 2019 season. In his short time in Philadelphia, Jay Ajayi helped the Eagles rushing game in 2017 and was a part of a team that gave the city of brotherly love its first Lombardi Trophy. He was off to a fast start in 2018, picking up two touchdowns in Week 1 against the Atlanta Falcons and another against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2. However, a torn ACL in Week 4 ended his season, and cost him a chance at landing a long-term, big-money deal this offseason.


Ajayi will leave the Eagles making a small blip on their all-time rushing leaders list:

  • 57th in rushing yards (592)

  • 72nd in rush attempts (115)

  • T-58th in rushing TDs (4)
