Not too long after Ajayi was ruled out for the year, Howie Roseman and the Eagles front office got to work on the cap space situation. Not only did they lose the NFC Championship rematch at home, but they also lost their starting running back, Jay Ajayi. Philadelphia is just 2-3 comping off of its Super Bowl-winning campaign. Or will elder statesman Darren Sproles come back soon and usurp everyone?
