NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that there is interest in a homecoming for McCoy, but it remains to be seen if the two sides can make a deal work. However, a recent report indicates that they are not planning to pursue a trade for the Steelers' disgruntled star. 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.

Expectations were high for Ajayi heading into the 2018 season as the team's No. 1 running back, and this will certainly put Philadelphia in an interesting position in the offseason when it comes to what to potentially do over his contract situation. Darren Sproles hasn't played since the season opener and Corey Clement has been out each of the last two weeks, so Wendell Smallwood might be the leading tailback on a short week against the Giants this Thursday. If they were to add another running back, then they might have a decision to make.
The Eagles placed Ajayi on injured reserve Monday because of a knee injury. Which would bring into play the eight figures in extra 2019 cap space that the Eagles created in the Cox restructuring, with the extra $6.5 million in extra 2018 cap space being used to cover Bell's base salary for the balance of the current season.
