The Athletic's Zach Berman suggests Eagles RB Boston Scott will be "competing for more of an offensive role."
"The Eagles don’t believe how Scott played in December was a mirage or simply a hot streak, but rather an indication he can be a weapon for the offense," Berman writes. "Whenever they are on the field for training camp, Scott won’t be competing for a roster spot; he’ll be competing for more of an offensive role." Scott came off the bench for Jordan Howard and Darren Sproles over the last month of the season, averaging 87.5 yards (and 5.7 yards per touch) from Week 14 on. It sounds as if the 25-year-old's role on offense will expand even if the team adds another veteran (on minimum salary) to the mix, keeping Scott locked in as a late-round option with immediate value. Miles Sanders is still fully expected to handle 15-18 touches per game as Philadelphia's lead back. Jun 02 9:16 am (EST)
- Scott rushed 61 times for 245 yards and five touchdowns while adding 24 catches on 26 targets for 204 yards in 11 regular-season games in 2019.
- Scott carried the ball 19 times for 54 yards and three touchdowns and caught four of six targets for 84 yards in Sunday's 34-17 win over the Giants.
- Coach Doug Pederson said Thursday that Scott has earned the chance to maintain a role in the Eagles' offensive game plan, even with fellow back Jordan Howard (shoulder) expected to play Sunday against the Giants, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports. All Boston Scott News
