Adrian Killins Jr.: Pens two-year deal

Killins (undisclosed) signed a two-year contract with the Eagles on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Killins suited up in just one game as a rookie with the Eagles. In that contest, he lost 12 yards on his only carry but caught his lone target for a two-yard gain. The UCF product will add depth in the Eagles' backfield, but Miles Sanders (knee) and Boston Scott should take on a bulk of the responsibility in 2021. In turn, Killins will have to battle for a roster spot during the offseason program and training camp.

Adrian Killins Jr.: Inks practice squad deal

The Eagles signed Killins to the practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: Killins suited up for the Eagles in Week 4 against the 49ers and lost 12 yards on his only carry but added a two-yard reception. He'll add organizational depth to the backfield, but he won't be promoted unless there's an injury to one of the four running backs on the active roster.

Adrian Killins Jr.: Cut from practice squad

The Eagles cut Killins from the practice squad Monday, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Analysis: The undrafted rookie out of UCF was elevated for the Week 4 win over San Francisco, and he recorded a carry that went for a 12-yard loss and a two-yard reception. This may be a signal that Miles Sanders (knee) will return Week 10 and the organizational depth is no longer needed. Killins will vie for a practice squad role elsewhere.

Adrian Killins Jr.: Rejoins practice squad

The Eagles signed Killins to the practice squad Wednesday.

Analysis: Killins was on the active roster for Week 4's primetime win over the 49ers. He took one carry on eight offensive snaps in his NFL debut, and additionally caught his only target for two yards. He now returns to the practice squad in an emergency depth capacity.

Adrian Killins Jr.: Let go by Philly

Killins was waived by the Eagles on Monday.

Analysis: The 22-year-old was promoted from the practice squad Saturday and made his NFL debut during Sunday's win over the 49ers, playing eight offensive snaps and rushing once for negative-12 yards and catching his only target for two yards. Killins is a candidate to rejoin the Eagles' practice squad should be go unclaimed on waivers.

Adrian Killins Jr.: Joins Eagles active roster

Killins was signed to the Eagles' active roster off the practice squad Saturday.

Analysis: The undrafted free agent could potentially get into his first NFL game Sunday against San Francisco, but he'll almost certainly be playing a minor role if he does. He's buried down the depth chart at running back and appears to be the team's fifth option behind Miles Sanders, Boston Scott, Corey Clement and Jason Huntley.

Adrian Killins Jr.: Waived by Eagles

Killins was waived by the Eagles on Thursday, Dave Zangaro of NBCSports.com reports.

Analysis: The Eagles made their final cuts at running back Thursday, parting ways with Killins, Elijah Holyfield and Michael Warren. Killins singed with Philadelphia as undrafted free agent back in April after spending four seasons at UCF.

Adrian Killins Jr.: Picking up slack

Coach Doug Peterson said Wednesday that Killins has been getting "a lot of reps" with Miles Sanders (lower body) sidelined, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

Analysis: Killins appears to be one of the beneficiaries after Sanders suffered a lower-body injury during training camp last week. Killins - an undrafted free agent out of Central Florida - totaled 21 touchdowns across three seasons in college. The fact that he's earning first-team reps is a strong sign that he'll make the roster at the least, but still has a ways to go to make a meaningful contribution from a fantasy perspective.
