According to Adam Schefter, the Philadelphia Eagles have signed former 49ers RB Tyrion Davis-Price, to a reserve-future contract.

Eagles sign Tyrion Davis-Price

TDP stands at 6’1, 219 lbs, and was drafted out of Louisana State in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft. He’s appeared in 7 games up to this point, registering 120 rushing yards on 40 carries in the 2023 team that made it to the Super Bowl.

Davis-Price spent 3 years at LSU prior to joining San Francisco, putting up 1,744 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns. 1,003 of those yards came in his junior season. He’s not an overly quick or agile runner, but someone who would be best suited to vertical looks where he can rely on his power to drive through contact.

The Eagles seem to have an affinity for 49ers castoffs at running back. Trey Sermon had bounced around the fringes of the Philadelphia roster between 2022-23, and TDP will be hoping to buck the trend and stick around.

Philadelphia only has one running back on the roster not currently set to hit the open market, so the signing of a bigger back would seem to hint at a departure for Rashaad Penny, who was unable to do much of anything during his short stint with the Eagles.
