NFL trade rumor: Ex-Eagles RB Miles Sanders strike four year contract agreement with Panthers

The NFL trade rumor mill is abuzz with news of a potential deal between the Carolina Panthers and former Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders. According to inside sources, Sanders has struck a four-year contract agreement with the Panthers, signaling a major shift in the team’s offensive strategy. Here’s what we know so far:

Signing with the Panthers, Sanders was able to cross the extra “Miles” and is now expected to earn a whopping $25.4 million in four years with a “fully guaranteed” $13 million according to Mike Gorofolo.

Before diving into the details of the potential trade, it’s important to know who Miles Sanders is and why he’s such a coveted player. Sanders was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft and quickly became a standout player on the team.

In his rookie year, he rushed for over 800 yards and scored three touchdowns, and he continued to impress in his second year with the team, racking up over 1,000 yards and six touchdowns.

Why are the Panthers Interested in Miles Sanders?

For one, the team has been struggling to find a reliable running back since Christian McCaffrey’s departure, so the inclusion of Sanders could fill the empty void and provide a much-needed boost to the team’s offense.

Additionally, Sanders is known for his versatility and ability to catch passes out of the backfield, which would make him a valuable asset in the Panthers’ passing game.

What Does This Means for the Eagles?

Of course, any time a team loses a standout player like Sanders, it does have its impact— the Eagles will need to find a way to replace Sanders’ level of productivity, a task no way near easy.

However, the team has several other talented running backs on its roster, including Boston Scott and Kenneth Gainwell, so even though Sanders’ departure might have left many gaps in the Eagles’ nest, the remaining “flock of Eagles” is here to rebuild their home ensuring a stable offense.

While the deal between Sanders and the Panthers has yet to be officially announced, it’s clear that there’s a lot of excitement surrounding this potential trade. If Sanders does end up joining the Panthers, it could be just the boost the team needs to make a serious run in the playoffs.
