Report: Eagles looking at Carlos Hyde for one-year

Sure enough, on today's episode of Inside The Birds with Adam Caplan and Geoff Mosher, Caplan reported the Eagles do indeed have interest in the 29-year-old running back. 

"Carlos Hyde has been on four teams in the last four years," Caplan explained. "They (the Eagles) are looking for a veteran running back. Hyde does turn 30 in September. He's been pretty durable lately, played all 16 games. He's only had one one thousand yard season and it was last season with the Texans. 

"He's out there. I'm told the Eagles have interest in him. They're only looking for one year out of him, at somewhere around veteran minimum, maybe plus a little bit of upside depending on playing time and so forth. Carlos Hyde is going to have to make a decision on what's he is willing to accept. There are no starting running back jobs out there. He would be in a great situation here for one season, to sort of revive his career. He would be a great signing for them. He's everything they need behind Sanders. I'm told Hyde is a guy they're targeting."

Last week, here's what Didinger said of Hyde. 

"He would kind of provide for you a little bit of what LeGarrette Blount did a couple years ago," Didinger told Joe DeCamara and Jon Ritchie, adding, "I don't think he'd cost you a ton of money."

Hyde, a second-round pick in 2014 out of Ohio State, totaled over 900 yards rushing in 2015 and 2016 and last season with the Texans rushed for 1,070 yards and six touchdowns. At 6'0", 230-pounds, like Didinger and Caplan both alluded to, Hyde would provide the Eagles with a tough, between-the-tackles type runner to compliment do-it-all back Miles Sanders and scat back Boston Scott. 

Last season, Hyde had a base salary of $1.4 million and a capt hit of $1.9 million.
