Eagles trade for Jordan Howard, send 2020 draft pick to Chicago Bears

The Eagles found their running back for next season by acquiring Jordan Howard from the Chicago Bears on Thursday for a 2020 draft pick, addressing a position of need without paying a hefty price. The draft pick is a sixth-rounder that could become a fifth-rounder. Howard is under contract for only one more season at $2.025 million, but it’s not an expensive salary, and it allows the Eagles to avoid paying a big contract in free agency or losing out on a compensatory pick. The Eagles did not address running back during the initial wave of free agency, but top executive Howie Roseman cautioned against panic when asked about it on Monday. He noted how the Eagles have six months before they play a game and that they won a Super Bowl in 2017 with three running backs who were added after the draft.
