Scott appears to be Philadelphia's No. 2 running back through the first few days of training camp, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.
EDGE Analysis
The Eagles have a deep group of running backs, with Scott and starter Miles Sanders joined by Kerryon Johnson, Jordan Howard and fifth-round pick Kenneth Gainwell. The latter is arguably the biggest threat to Scott's backup role, but the veteran will at least get a chance to defend it, following a 2020 campaign in which he averaged 5.0 yards on 80 carries and 8.5 yards on 25 receptions. Gainwell is also a smaller back with promising receiving skills, so it'll be hard to find find steady roles for both him and Scott unless Sanders is injured or benched.

Scott has signed his exclusive-rights tender with the Eagles, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
EDGE Analysis
With only two accredited seasons to his name, Scott will need to wait until next spring for his first shot at restricted free agency. He's a clear No. 2 on Philadelphia's backfield depth chart heading into April, but there's still plenty of time for the team to add competition before training camp. Scott averaged 4.7 yards on 80 carries and 8.5 yards on 25 catches last season, though he barely got any touches when Miles Sanders was healthy. Scott's four starts accounted for 51 of his 80 carries (64 percent) and nine of his 25 receptions (36 percent).

Scott will be an exclusive rights free agent this offseason, meaning he can only negotiate with the Eagles, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
EDGE Analysis
There was talk of Scott being a restricted free agent, but that would've required three accrued seasons in the NFL, rather than the two he's been credited with. A 2018 sixth-round pick, Scott started his career on the Saints' practice squad before the Eagles poached him in December of 2018. He's since played in 29 regular-season games for Philadelphia, taking 141 carries for 618 yards (4.4 YPC) and six touchdowns, with 49 catches for 416 yards (8.5 YPR) and another score. The 5-foot-6 Scott is one of the shortest players in the NFL, but his dense build (203 pounds) and impressive receiving skills have helped him develop into a reliable backup RB behind Miles Sanders. That said, there's always the possibility of Philadelphia adding backfield competition this offseason, especially if the new coaching staff lacks confidence in Sanders and/or Scott.

Scott filled in for Miles Sanders (knee) and finished with 65 yards on 15 carries and two receptions (five targets) for 14 yards in Sunday's 20-14 loss to Washington.
EDGE Analysis
Scott made his third spot start in place of Sanders this season, and the results were on par with his previous opportunities in which he turned in solid, yet unspectacular, fantasy lines. The 25-year-old is a solid backup with some ability as a pass catcher, but he doesn't have much upside when he is asked to be anything more than that. Scott will become an restricted free agent this offseason, but with big turnover potentially coming for the Eagles, it is unclear whether the front office plans to retain him or not.

Scott is expected to lead the Philadelphia backfield Sunday against Washington, as teammate Miles Sanders has been ruled out with a knee injury.
EDGE Analysis
Scott played 56, 69 and 66 percent of the offensive snaps in the three other games Sanders missed this season, averaging 12 carries for 50.3 yards and 2.3 catches for 24.7 yards, with his one touchdown being a game-winning reception Week 7 against the Giants. Scott now gets another chance to strut his stuff in a primetime game, though any of Corey Clement, Jason Huntley and Jordan Howard could also have a role in the game plan.

Scott carried the ball twice for 17 yards in Sunday's 37-17 loss to the Cowboys.
EDGE Analysis
Scott saw his fewest carries since Week 5 but made the most of them, as he gained as many yards as he had in any of his past four contests. With Miles Sanders healthy, the 25-year-old is looking at a similar role in Week 17 against Washington.

Scott caught his lone target for a seven-yard gain in Sunday's 33-26 loss to Arizona.
EDGE Analysis
Scott played 15 snaps in the game and has not seen more than 16 in any of his past three outings. The Louisiana Tech product did not register a carry for the first time all season and has not seen more than four touches in a contest since Week 12.

Scott carried the ball three times for six yards and caught his lone target for 11 yards in Sunday's 24-21 win over New Orleans.
EDGE Analysis
Scott has seen three or fewer carries and targets in four of his past five games. Meanwhile, Miles Sanders and Jalen Hurts garnered 32 carries between them.

Scott rushed twice for nine yards and was unable to catch either of his two targets in Sunday's 30-16 loss to Green Bay.
EDGE Analysis
Scott has not topped eight touches since the Eagles' Week 9 bye. He remains a fantasy afterthought as long as Miles Sanders is healthy.

Scott rushed twice for seven yards and caught five of six targets for 40 yards in Monday night's 23-17 loss to the Seahawks.
EDGE Analysis
Scott trailed only Dallas Goedert for Philadelphia's team lead in receptions. Despite the presence of starting Miles Sanders ahead of him, Scott has persisted as a useful change-of-pace threat, with his versatility as a pass-catcher working as an added bonus. Look for him to remain in the mix as a complementary piece in Week 13 versus the Packers.
