Eagles coach Andy Reid has already said that RB LeSean McCoy’s workload will be reduced this year, which means more playing time for the backup.
Although Chris Polk could work his way into the competition, we’re guessing ultimately Bryce Brown and Dion Lewis will be the prime candidates for the No. 2 tailback job.
Lewis didn’t play much as a rookie -- 4.4 average on 23 carries -- but when he did get the ball he was productive. Brown, the rookie seventh-round pick, has an edge in size and is a better receiver. Lewis blocked surprisingly well last year, but Brown, with his speed, size and receiving ability, will get every opportunity to win the No. 2 job.
