The Eagles reportedly discussed a trade for Sermon with San Francisco last week; they held off and grabbed him off waivers instead.
Trey Sermon, 6’0″, 215 lbs, was a 3rd-round pick in last year’s draft and played with Jalen Hurts in Oklahoma. Playing his final season at Ohio State, Sermon rushed for nearly 3,000 yards and 26 TDs in college. He currently holds OSU’s single-game rushing record at 331 yards set in the 2020 Big 10 Championship game.
With Elijah Mitchell assuming the lead back role in San Francisco, Sermon became expendable and will now serve as the power runner in Philadelphia’s new-look offense. Sermon totaled 167 rushing yards and one TD during his rookie season with the 49ers.
Jalen Hurts x Trey Sermon — just like old times.
