The Philadelphia Eagles are among the NFL's leaders in how much they value the running back position. General manager Howie Roseman has another opportunity to show that off by signing free-agent running back Devonta Freeman.
Roseman made his stance on investing in running backs clear last year when the Eagles chose Miles Sanders in the second round of the 2019 draft.
"Guess what, guys," Roseman told reporters after selecting Sanders. "We got a running back. We draft running backs in Philadelphia."
The statement may have been made in jest since the organization hadn't sunk a significant draft pick in the position during the previous decade, but it still speaks to the organization's willingness to spend a valuable asset on a position that's largely viewed around the league as devalued. Philadelphia does invest in running backs, carries more on the roster than most and utilizes each of them.
