The Philadelphia Eagles will soon face a tough decision when it comes to whether Josh Adams is worth keeping around.

Due to numerous injuries at the running back position during the 2018 season, Josh Adams was able to see some solid playing time for the Philadelphia Eagles, and even led the team in rushing.

Even if leading an offense like the Eagles with only 511 rushing yards is the last thing any player should be bragging about, just the fact that the former Notre Dame star was able to make a name for himself as an undrafted rookie says a lot about Adams.

Of course, just like most young running backs in the league, Adams has a few areas of weakness in need of improvement, especially when it comes to his fumbles being an issue.

Since Philadelphia already knows that Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders are going to play significant roles during the 2019 season, the preseason seemed like the perfect opportunity for Adams to show he was worthy of a roster spot.

Beyond Howard and Sanders, Adams faces plenty of tough competition for a roster spot as well, ranging from Darren Sproles to Corey Clement.

Since the chances of the Eagles moving on from Sproles and Clement being cut seem slim due to their roles from previous years, this could very well mean that Adams ends up being the odd-man out, which is totally fine.

At the end of the day, Philadelphia will need to do what’s best for the team, and that means moving on from Adams, well at least the offense will still have plenty of other running backs that can fill in.

A team like the Eagles can only give someone like Adams so many opportunities to prove themselves, and it would be one thing if his preseason was mostly productive, but that’s been far from the case.

The fact that Adams only has 28 rushing yards on 15 carries (1.9 yards per carry) through three preseason game shows how much of a disappointment he’s been, and doesn’t seem worth keeping around.

So with plenty of tough decisions to make for the final roster cuts, here’s to hoping that Philadelphia makes the right choice by moving on from Adams, or they will most likely regret it down the road.
