Mike Warren II
RB - DET
The Philadelphia Eagles have waived undrafted rookie free agent Michael Warren II, along with Elijah Holyfield, and Adrian Killins Jr.
That leaves the Eagles with three RBs on the roster heading into the regular season (Miles Sanders, Boston Scott, and Corey Clement). This news should remove any doubt that Sanders is in any way, shape, or form injured. The Eagles would have kept more than three RBs if Sanders wasn’t able to go in Week 1. That also likely cements his role as a featured back. He’s a sure-fire RB1 this season with Scott and Clement operating in complementary roles.
Former Cincinnati RB Michael Warren II has signed with the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent.
The Eagles didn’t select a running back in this year’s Draft, but they pick up Michael Warren II as an undrafted free agent. He’s a big, physical runner who had a great past two seasons at Cincinnati. In 2018 and 2019, he combined for 2,594 yards and 33 TDs on the ground. The power back finds himself in a unique situation in Philadelphia of being able to contribute immediately in goal-line or short-yardage situations as a bruiser. Miles Sanders and Boston Scott don’t offer the same physicality that Warren II brings to the table, and for that reason, he’s got some immediate appeal in TD-dependent fantasy leagues. Keep an eye on Warren II this off-season to see what kind of role he can carve out in the Eagles high-powered offense.
