Fourth and Goal

Clearly, there are several viable options for Roseman and the front office to look at regarding the running back position.

If the coaches aren’t willing to give Clement and Smallwood a chance to prove themselves, acquiring a feature back like Jordan Howard could be in the best interest of the team both this year and in the long run.

If Pederso doesn’t feel comfortable letting his current backs take the torch with only Josh Adams as the fallback, Prosise could be a compelling safety net who just might blossom into a stud.

Either way, there are clearly other flaws in this Eagles roster that may pose a greater issue than the running back position. In part two of this series, I tackle an issue more effectively than that issue tackles. If you’re catching my drift, check in next time to see who might be able to help diffuse the string of bombs that have dismantled this Eagles defense.
