eagles sign former 49ers rb to futures deal

Tyrion Davis-Price.

In 2022, Trey Sermon saw his brief 49ers tenure come to an end by joining the Eagles. The same is now true of fellow running back Tyrion Davis-Price.

The latter signed a reserve/futures contract with Philadelphia on Tuesday, his agency announced. Davis-Price was added in the third round of the 2022 draft, but he was unable to carve out a role in San Francisco.

He was waived in December after playing in just one contest. The 23-year-old cleared waivers and finished the season on the 49ers’ practice squad.

The Eagles lost Miles Sanders in free agency last offseason when he joined the Panthers on a four-year, $25.4M deal. His chief replacement was D’Andre Swift, acquired via trade from the Lions during the draft.

Swift earned his first career Pro Bowl nod by rushing for 1,049 yards and five touchdowns. He did not have as large of a pass-catching role as some expected he would, however.

Swift is a pending free agent, as are Boston Scott and Rashaad Penny. Tuesday’s move will thus give the Eagles a young depth option in the backfield as they sort out their direction at the position for the offseason.

Davis-Price has logged only 40 carries across seven regular-season games. He has yet to record a reception, and he was not used heavily on special teams by the 49ers. The LSU alum thus faces an uphill battle to earn a 53-man roster spot.

Philadelphia now has three backs under contract, including fellow reserve deal signee Lew Nichols and returnee Kenneth Gainwell.

Unless one or more of Swift, Scott and Penny are re-signed, the Eagles will no doubt be in the market for an addition at the RB spot.

Regardless, Davis-Price will turn his attention to his new home as he looks to establish himself as a full-time contributor.
