The Carolina Panthers have agreed to a four-year deal with former Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders, according to Ian Rapoport and Mike Garofolo of the NFL Network.
The 25-year-old just had a career year with the Eagles, helping them reach the Super Bowl while making it as a Pro Bowl selection for the first time after registering 1,269 yards and 11 touchdowns. He’s the first Philly running back to pass the 1,000-yard mark since 2014, when LeSean McCoy eclipsed the number.
The Panthers turned to Sanders after negotiations with D’Onta Foreman fell through. Re-signing Foreman was a priority for the team but they ended up looking in another direction when nothing materialized, though bringing him back is still possible.
This is a big loss for the Eagles, who appear to be pretty laid back this offseason albeit bringing a handful of key players back. Sanders ranks third in the NFL in rushing average since 2021 with 5.1 per game. Only Tony Pollard and Nick Chubb have been better with 5.34 and 5.25 respectively.
The RB was selected out of the second round by Philadelphia in the 2019 NFL Draft. In four seasons with the Eagles, he’s posted 3,708 rushing yards and 20 TDs on the ground.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
