NFL Free Agency: Boson Scott Heading To LA

NFL Free Agency: Boson Scott Heading To LA Bill Streicher, USA TODAY Sports

The Giant Killer is officially heading out.

On Monday, it was announced that the Los Angeles Rams had signed running back Boston Scott to join their backfield.

The move isn’t much of a surprise given the Eagles drafting a back with a similar play style in Will Shipley and also adding several players (Isaiah Rodgers, Parris Campbell, Ainias Smith, etc.) who would figure to compete for the returning role that Scott had occuped.

Scott made an official statement to the organization, fans and city thanking them for his time here.

Scott joined the team way back in December of 2018 when the Eagles poached him off of the Saints practice squad.

He was never a workhorse type back for the Eagles (except for a few games against the Giants) but he was a productive player that would put up 1,295 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns over the next five seasons.

He averaged 4.3 yards per attempt in his time in Philadelphia.

He also added 1,504 yards returning kicks over the years.

He will now head to LA where Kyren Williams is the only back with good success at the NFL level, so he may have a better opportunity for playing time.
