Philadelphia Eagles Secure ‘Big & Physical’ 2-Time Championship Running Back!

In a surprising turn of events, the Philadelphia Eagles have added another formidable running back to their roster, agreeing to terms with undrafted free agent Kendall Milton. This move marks yet another acquisition of a former Georgia Bulldogs player by the Eagles, as confirmed by Georgia’s official X account.

Despite facing stiff competition in Georgia’s loaded backfield, Milton managed to shine with his limited opportunities, boasting an impressive average of 6.5 and 7 yards per carry over the past two seasons.

In 2023, Milton showcased his prowess with 121 carries, accumulating 790 rushing yards and an impressive 14 touchdowns. However, there’s room for improvement in his involvement in the passing game, as he only recorded four receptions for 25 yards last season.

A key contributor to Georgia’s consecutive national title triumphs in 2021 and 2022, Milton now joins a roster teeming with former Bulldogs players, many of whom played pivotal roles in those championship campaigns.
