Eagles Claim RB William Powell Off Waivers
The Eagles added another running back to their roster today, claiming William Powell (5-9, 207) off waivers.
Powell, 25, spent last year with the Cardinals, carrying 59 times for 216 yards (3.7 YPC) behind a horrible offensive line. He also had 19 catches for 132 yards.
“The overall yards per carry wasn’t great,” said GM Howie Roseman. “But he was making a lot of yards on his own.”
LeSean McCoy and Bryce Brown figure to carry the load, but the Eagles have made several moves to address depth and competition at the running back spot this offseason. They added veteran Felix Jones and also signed undrafted free agent Matthew Tucker.
