Breaking news early Tuesday morning as ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Philadelphia Eagles have acquired running back Jay Ajayi in a trade with the Miami Dolphins. 

In nine games this season, Ajayi has rushed for 465 yards and no touchdown while averaging 3.4 yards per carry. 

Last season, Ajayi finished with 1,225 yards and eight touchdowns. 

Ajayi is still only 24 years old and he's now in a talented Eagles offense along with running backs LeGarrette Blount and Wendell Smallwood. 

The road to the Super Bowl currently goes through Philadelphia. The Eagles are 7-1, one game ahead of the 6-2 Vikings.
