Dolphins Trade Ajayi to Eagles

We almost overlooked this with all the other insanity going on at the trade deadline, but the Miami Dolphins have traded running back Jay Ajayi to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for a 2018 fourth-round draft pick.

On Thursday night against Baltimore, Ajayi gained 21 yards on his first carry, then 2 yards on his other 13 carries. Dolphins coach Adam Gase had harsh words after the game: "We've got to stop trying to hit home runs all the time. It's on the running back. Do your job. It's not hard to do."

Panthers Trade Kelvin Benjamin to Bills

The Carolina Panthers have traded wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for third- and seventh-round picks in next year's draft.

The trade fills an obvious need for Buffalo, who find themselves in the thick of the playoff chase at 5-2 despite one of the NFL's worst depth chart at wide receiver. Running back LeSean McCoy leads the team in targets and receptions. Second-round rookie Zay Jones is second on the team with 37 targets, but has only caught 10 of those passes.

Bills Trade Marcell Dareus to Jacksonville

Surprising move for a pair of surprising teams this year: the 4-2 Buffalo Bills have traded defensive tackle Marcell Dareus to the 4-3 Jacksonville Jaguars for a sixth-round pick in 2018. ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the pick could be a fifth-rounder based on Dareus' performance.
