Miles Sanders posts Instagram Story yet again, expressing his interest to say in Philadelphia
Miles Sanders posted an Instagram story yesterday expressing, yet again, his interest in staying in Philadelphia next season.

The post reflects comments that Miles Sanders made back in mid-January about his future with the Eagles.
Miles Sanders’ future with the Philadelphia Eagles remains uncertain.
Even with Sanders rushing for a career-high 1269 yards and 11 TDs last season, the Eagles have been reluctant to shell out top-end money for running backs in the past, aside from LeSean McCoy 11 years ago.
Philadelphia won’t be short on options as the upcoming free agent class is loaded with RB talent, with rumors already swirling that Dalvin Cook is on the team’s radar.

- David Montgomery
Honestly, if Sanders doesn’t come back on a super-friendly deal, then I don’t see him returning to Philadelphia next season.
During the Super Bowl, Sanders carried the ball seven times for 16 yards. On his first touch of the night, he fumbled the ball out of bounds and nearly cost the Eagles seven points after another fumble in the second half, only for the call to get reversed.
Again, Howie Roseman has never paid his running backs top-end money. The only exception was LeSean McCoy, who’s one of the best RBs ever to wear an Eagles uniform.
Sanders is clearly not on the level and has never been an elite back in the NFL.
His 2022 season aside, Sanders has routinely underwhelmed for most of his professional career. He’s a good, not great running back who will look to get paid like a top-10 guy. Howie just won’t pony up on that.
