The Philadelphia Eagles are fresh off a Super Bowl loss to the Chiefs, but one player wants to keep the good times rolling with the team and return back to them.
Miles Sanders wants to stay in Philly.
The Philadelphia Eagles running back is set to hit free agency next month, but he wants his team and other teams to know he wants to stay where he is at.
In a quote posted to his Instagram story, Sanders says: “I love Philly. Just bring me back. I hope they bring me back.”
Sanders is coming off the best season of his four-year career, rushing 259 times for a career-high 1,269 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also put up a career-high 1,347 yards from scrimmage in earning his first Pro Bowl selection.
This is the first time in his career that the 25-year-old Sanders will be a free agent. He was picked by Philadelphia in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
Sanders can clearly land a better contract elsewhere, but it’s clear he might give a hometown discount just to stay with the Eagles.
Philadelphia averaged an NFL-best 153.6 rushing yards per game and 57 rushing touchdowns over the last two seasons. The team would love to have him back, but at what cost?
Sanders was essential to Philadelphia’s run game this year, and time will soon tell if they’ll pay him or let him walk.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
