Free-agent running back Devonta Freeman is visiting the Philadelphia Eagles, according to NFL insider Mike Garafolo. Garafolo adds that it does not sound like there is any deal agreed to as of yet but that the Eagles and working out Freeman in case they decide that they need a running back in the near future.

With Miles Sanders missing Philadelphia's Week 1 matchup against Washington, the team got an extended look at running backs Boston Scott and Corey Clement. The results were not very good. Freeman would give the team a reliable complement to Sanders and a veteran presence in the running back room, though his arrival would likely negatively affect the fantasy value of Sanders.
