Jay Ajayi wants to return to workhorse role

Running back Jay Ajayi joined the Eagles in the middle of the 2017 season and split time in the backfield with LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement on the way to a Super Bowl title.

Blount left as a free agent this offseason, but Clement is still around and the Eagles brought back Darren Sproles after last year’s torn ACL. Recent draft picks Wendell Smallwood and Donnel Pumphrey are also on the roster and former Washington starter Matt Jones recently joined the team, so the pieces for another committee would certainly seem to be in place.

Always wanted to play in front of these fans, Marshall wrote in a post with a picture of him in a 12th man shirt.

The 34-year-old Marshall is a six-time Pro Bowler, but the Giants cut him in April with a failed physical designation. He was coming off ankle surgery after playing five games last year for Big Blue.

While players were discouraged by the league’s decision, they were happy that Jets CEO and chairman Christopher Johnson publicly said he would not impose punishment on any player who protested, and would pay any fines the Jets, as a team, incurred from the league for their players staging a protest.

We’ve been actively in conversations with Christopher, on how we can go about it, and other ways to make change, Kearse said. I’m very appreciative of him. I think he kind of gets it, the fact that he has taken ownership, to support us and be actively involved.

We’ve spent an awful lot of time, I think this is our fourth day in the red zone, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said, via Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. I think it’s just important we get a lot of work in there. We put a big emphasis on it last year. We’re going to continue to do so.

While Cousins has found some early rapport with tight end Kyle Rudolph, the rest of the passing game is a work in progress. With new coordinator John DeFilippo putting in new things, there’s a big emphasis on installation this time of year, with a new set of basics like snap counts and play calls.

That’s why we’re doing it. It’s not easy, Cousins said. It is condensed. You have to be on the screws. Your throws have to be that much more accurate. The routes have to be that much more perfect in terms of the depth, the cut and the timing. That’s why we’re practicing it right now. . . .

Neil Walker reaches one-year agreement with Yankees

The New York Yankees have agreed to a one-year deal with veteran second baseman Neil Walker.

A Silver Slugger winner at second base in 2014, Walker is a career .272 hitter with 130 homers in parts of nine seasons with the Mets, Brewers and Pirates.

He had been working out at the camp for free agents in Bradenton, Florida, organized by the players’ association.

To make room for Walker on the 40-man roster, the Yankees have designated for assignment outfielder Jake Cave.

The Yankees also released infielder Danny Espinosa from his minor league contract.

But he’s played in just nine games all season. So nobody’s expecting imminent rescue by Leonard, even though his elite skill set suggests he probably could save San Antonio’s season.

I saw the reports that say he wants to come back Thursday, Parker said. So it’ll be 14 games left. It is what it is. We’ll try to do our best. I know everybody wants to keep fighting. There’s a lot of character on this team. If Kawhi comes back, hopefully he can help us. We know it’s not going to be easy. He didn’t play for like two months. It’s going to be a tough situation regardless, but we’ll try to do the best we can.

A two-season layoff following an August 2016 knee injury naturally depresses Bridgewater’s value. But in a best-case scenario, a team could acquire a quarterback who — after knocking the rust off — could start for 10 seasons or more. At the very least, Bridgewater will bring supreme professionalism and attitude to any role he receives. — Seifert

Teams don’t step out much for linebackers unless they are also pass-rushers, but Brown can make a big difference relative to what he is likely to be paid. He’s a tackling machine (512 in four seasons) who hasn’t missed a game in the NFL. — Seifert

Veteran running backs are usually bargains on the open market, considering their short shelf life. But whoever signs McKinnon will get a player who fits well into today’s incarnation of NFL running backs. He is equally fluent in the running and passing games, and offers value as a returner as well. — Seifert

If Fulmer is healthy, he could be as attractive a trade target as will exist on the in-season market, with the stuff to be a No. 2 or 3 in a contending rotation and four years of team control remaining. That combination should command a hefty price in another team’s prospects.
