The Eagles are not expected to re-sign backup running back Jerome Harrison, who was severely underutilized in his short tenure in Philadelphia.
Though the Eagles drafted Dion Lewis, an impressive runner from Pittsburgh, most do not expect the Eagles to trust him with the backup job to LeSean McCoy.
A recent report stated that the Eagles could be interested in the New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush.
Bush is one of the most explosive players in the NFL and would probably be an afterthought in an offense composed of Michael Vick, DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin.
The Eagles, though, may have a need for the backup running back spot. Dion Lewis is an elusive runner, but with the lockout, he may need time to adjust to the NFL game.
Bush would start right away as the punt returning specialist replacing Jackson. Jackson may not want be the punt returning specialist because he won't want to risk an injury that would affect his contract status. Bush would be an electrifying punt returner and would add another dimension of speed to the backfield.
Darren Sproles can do it all for your football team.
Though he is undersized, he plays with heart, can be effective as a change-of-pace back and is legitimate in the passing game.
Sproles is one of the better returners in the game, so he could also provide a spark to the special teams.
He has to compete with Ryan Matthews and Mike Tolbert, so the likelihood of getting carries is very slim.
The Cardinals running back will probably not re-sign with the team, especially with the recent drafting of talented back Ryan Williams in the second round.
Hightower is a solid third-down back who doesn't do anything spectacular, but is consistent.
Carnell "Cadillac" Williams
Carnell "Cadillac" Williams is a solid running back who can excel as a backup.
Williams lost his job in Tampa Bay to LeGarette Blount, but he can still catch the ball and block well. Williams caught 46 balls last season.
The Eagles' backup running back job will not be attractive, considering the Eagles had one of the best with Jerome Harrison and barely used him.
