    Default Ajayi (Torn ACL)

    Eagles apparently put Ajayi on IR today with a torn ACL. That's news.

    Now for (my) rank speculation:

    Does this news now create the most logical fit and potential front runner as a landing spot for Bell? Championship caliber team underperforming a bit to date; solid o-line; finally getting healthy on offense again, outside of a glaring need at RB, and probably don't want their QB being forced to carry the team on a weekly basis; NFC team, so while proximately located to Pittsburgh compared to many other potential destinations, it's about as far away from the Steelers as can be for purposes of preventing Bell from haunting them in the future.

    Admittedly, I have no idea what the Eagles' cap situation is, or how the NFL salary cap even works in terms of freeing up cap space through injuries, releasing players, trades, etc. (I do hear the concept of "dead money" thrown around quite a bit for players that are no longer on a team's roster, so apparently it's somewhat tricky). But in any event, it's the first though that crossed my mind when I read the news about Ajayi.

    ...and no sooner do I finish speculating than the Eagles restructure Fletcher Cox's contract to free up $6.7 million in cap space for this season, and just short of $12 million for next season ... only to have sources then promptly squash the idea that they have interest in Bell.

    Oh well. Was an interesting thought. We'll see what happens. Sometimes where there's smoke, there's fire.

    Also heard an interesting possibility bandied about this morning -- Ameer Abdullah.

    Not a stud by any stretch. But he has some versatility, and the Lions clearly want to trade him so he'll likely come as a very cheap option.

    Well wouldn't that suck for everyone who just spent FAAB on Smallwood. I missed out on him in both leagues. Got Clement in one though.
