Price Is Right

Birds Sign Street FA RB, Also Add OT


The Eagles on Monday added another street free-agent signing, agreeing to terms with former 49ers running back Tyrion Davis-Price, per his agency, Elite Loyalty Sports.

According to the agency, Davis-Price signed “the biggest” Reserve/Futures deal in the league. The Eagles previously only had two running backs – Kenneth Gainwell and Lew Nichols – who’ll be under contract when the new league year begins March 13.

GETTY IMAGES: The Eagles signed street free-agent RB Tyrion Davis-Price, a former 49ers third-round pick.

The 6-foot-1, 219-pound Davis-Price, a 2022 third-round pick by the 49ers, has a chance to compete this spring and summer for a spot on the 53-man roster. He’s the kind of big-bodied ball carrier that the Eagles have lacked over the last few years.

The Eagled confirmed the signing, and announced that they signed offensive tackle Darrian Kennard, a 2022 fifth-round pick of the Chiefs who has played in one career game.

Davis-Price has 120 career rushing yards on 40 carries, an average of 3.0 yards per carry, and hasn’t scored a touchdown. The LSU product has no career receptions and has played just 77 total snaps in two years, with no returns on kickoffs.

Oddly enough, the Niners took Davis-Price in the third round of the 2022 draft after taking running back Trey Sermon in the third round of the 2021 draft and moving on from Sermon after one season.

Sermon then joined the Eagles and spent most of 2022 on the practice squad before moving onto the Colts in 2023 after the Eagles waived him.

    I think the fans may be overlooking how poorly the Eagles protected Jalen last year. The strength of the Eagles offensive line is to run the football. When successful, play action passing may give Jalen the added time he needs to find receivers. A better right guard may also relieve some pressure from their opponents.
