The Philadelphia Eagles have parted ways with running back Josh Adams, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports. A second-year back with some promise, the Eagles' rebuilt depth chart at the position — highlighted by Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders — meant he was buried and not in-line for significant touches.

Last year, the former Notre Dame star entered the NFL Draft just to see his name passed over 256 times. He signed with the Eagles after being undrafted. Adams enjoyed a solid preseason before a release and then was re-signed. Eventually, the 6-foot-2, 225-pound 22-year-old led the Eagles in rushing in 2018, tallying 511 yards and three touchdowns on 4.3 yards per attempt.

Adams underwent offseason labrum surgery in 2019. He eased himself back into practice in May and was in attendance and participated in training camp. In the preseason, he took a feature role in Philadelphia's backfield, but he couldn't turn his touches into production. Over four games, he recorded 27 yards and a touchdown on 17 attempts, equating to 1.7 yards per rush attempt.

With Corey Clement and Darren Sproles poised to return alongside Howard and Sanders, the need for Adams in Philly quickly became lost. In addition, the team cut more running backs, including Boston Scott and Donnell Pumphrey. It should be obvious that their depth at the position is a strong suit of the team.

Though Adams is now looking for a home, it shouldn't take long for him to resurface back into the NFL. He's a young running back that has shown potential to carry a high workload. The Houston Texans and New York Jets are both looking for backs and come to mind as new NFL homes.
