What does the LeGarrette Blount signing mean for the Eagles

With the signing of LeGarrette Blount, it becomes a lot clearer what the Philadelphia Eagles‘ intentions are in the latter half of the offseason.

It’s almost guaranteed that the Eagles will cut Ryan Mathews once he is healthy enough to pass a physical. This also makes it pretty apparent that the Eagles will have a running back by committee this year.

The Eagles’ depth chart prior to the Blount signing didn’t consist of a power back. Darren Sproles, Donnel Pumphrey and Wendell Smallwood are all known for their speed.
