The Facts: Highly touted Washington running back Polk told NFLDraftScout.com via CBSSports.com that he has agreed to terms with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Diehards Line:Some projected Polk as high as a second-round pick, but he wasn't among the 253 players selected in this year's draft. However, as soon as the draft ended, Polk's phone began to ring, and he chose the Eagles over the NFC East rival Washington Redskins. "I will just have to go out there and show them I have a lot of great football left in me," Polk said. "I know teams are concerned about my shoulder, but I also heard somebody say something about a degenerative hip, and there is just no truth to that. I had labrum surgery on the shoulder a year ago and it didn't slow me down last season. ..." Polk rushed for 1,341 yards last season, and he also caught 29 passes for 324 yards and scored 15 touchdowns. He rushed for 4,049 yards in his career. The Eagles, with HC Andy Reid recently suggesting it might be time to slightly lighten LeSean McCoy's workload, could be an interestingt spot for Polk. Dion Lewis and Graig Cooper were the only running backs on the roster entering the draft, and the team selected Kansas State's Bryce Brown in the seventh round Saturday.
