The Eagles won’t have any problems scoring touchdowns when down on the goalline.

Last season, at the age 30, the former Patriots running back led the NFL in rushing touchdowns with 18.

The Eagles were close to entering the season without a proven NFL runner who can handle short-yardage duty.

Blount is coming off an 18-touchdown, 1,161-yard season.

They now have one of the best in the league on their roster, and will have a full package of running backs to take pressure off Carson Wentz, including Darren Sproles and rookie Donell Pumphrey Jr.
