Eagles add RB, acquire Jordan Howard from Bears

Jordan Howard

The Chicago Bears did the expected Thursday when they traded running back Jordan Howard to the Philadelphia Eagles for a sixth-round pick in the 2020 National Football League draft, and Howard took to Twitter Friday to say goodbye to Bears fans. He had an excellent rookie year, piling up 1,313 yards and averaging 5.2 YPC. Eagles had been looking to supplement their running options following the departures of Jay Ajayi and Darren Sproles.

"When you're dealing with running backs for us, in this offense, you want to be able to have a guy that has really good vision that can make guys miss", Nagy said. Nagy's frequent comments through much of last season, that the Bears were still in search of an identity in their run game, made it amply apparent that the long-term identity would not involve Howard.

In Philadelphia, Howard joins an Eagles offense that is very similar to the one he leaves in Chicago.

Davis, who was actually drafted in the fourth round in 2015, one year before the Bears found Howard in Round 5, had two 30-plus catch seasons at SC prior to joining the NFL. He also recorded 72 catches for 568 yards (7.9 avg) and a score. His 2,057 yards put him in the same company as Todd Gurley, Ezekiel Elliott and Kareem Hunt. Davis also gained almost a full yard overall more than Howard on each carry last season (4.6 to 3.7) and earned the same AV (approximate value) grade from Pro Football Reference - 6 - as Howard.

If Howard can be productive on first and second downs, the trade will be a success.

Some will question the decision by the Bears to move on from Howard after only three seasons, but with Tarik Cohen already on board on top of the recent signing of Mike Davis, Chicago's backfield was a little too crowded.

The team acquired RB Jordan Howard from Chicago in return for a conditional 2020 6th round pick.
