Jay Ajayi Rep: Eagles RB Didn’t Trash a Mansion and Shove a Guy

Kevin Kinkead - May 15, 2018

TMZ reported Monday that Birds running back Jay Ajayi was being sued for $25,000 after allegedly trashing a Los Angeles house after the Super Bowl.

The alleged incident(s) happened back in February, when Ajayi rented the property for a five-day stay. In the lawsuit, the owner claims Ajayi and a friend threw multiple parties at the house despite being told not to. The owner says Ajayi damaged the home and refused to pay back owed money:

In total, Ajayi racked up $25,000 in penalty fees — but when the owner confronted Jay on Feb. 18, he claims Ajayi “pushed [him] on [his] chest in a menacing and threatening manner.”

The owner describes the incident as battery — and said he had to call local security to remove the NFL star from the property.

Ajayi’s camp later responded to a TMZ request for comment:

A rep for Ajayi tells TMZ Sports the lawsuit is bogus … adamantly denying Jay ever physically pushed the owner of the home.

They also deny Jay damaged the property in any way … or hosted any parties.

Instead they claim the owner tried to get Jay and his friend to pay him cash directly — bypassing the Airbnb website — so they say they left the house several days early … but still paid the full rate.

Truthfully, though, who hasn’t (allegedly) thrown a banger and trashed a mansion? I think we’ve all been there before.

That said, let’s hope this situation can be resolved amicably.

Jay Ajayi Knew Something Bad Might Happen

I think every Eagles fan was saying the same thing after watching that play unfold.

Examining Jay Ajayi’s (Former) Offensive Line and Right Knee

Kevin Kinkead - November 1, 2017

On the surface, a fourth round draft pick for Jay Ajayi feels like highway robbery.

Here’s a guy who ran for 1,272 yards and eight touchdowns last season. He’s 24 years old and under contract for $705,000 next season.

So what’s the catch?

Is this a classic case of sending your team a message? Making an example out of a guy? Did Ajayi wear out his welcome in Miami? The ex-Dolphins running back reportedly did not have a great relationship with head coach Adam Gase, who criticized his running backs after Thursday’s 40-0 loss in Baltimore. Gase said that his team has “got to stop trying to hit home runs all the time” and insinuated that some Dolphins don’t even know the full play book.:

“Offensively, it’s a joke,” Gase said. “We’ve got too many guys that don’t want to take it home with them. Until our best players actually put forth some effort, it’ll be [expletive].”

In 2017, Ajayi has 465 yards and zero touchdowns on 138 attempts. He’s on pace for about 66% of last year’s total yardage production and is finding zero red zone success.

Kyle mentioned earlier that Miami’s offense is pretty bad, and that can’t be understated.

Jay Cutler was poor and Matt Moore is worse. The Dolphins are the only team to score under 100 points this season and they rank dead last in total offense. Teams were able to stuff Ajayi with eight man fronts and sell out in rushing defense to make a one-dimensional offense become zero-dimensional. The Dolphins also spent a lot of time playing from behind, so they were chucking it in the losses against Baltimore (40-0), New Orleans (20-0), and the Jets (20-6). Somehow, they’re 4-3 and will probably be in the wild card hunt because their defense is pretty good.

Here’s Ajayi’s 2017 game log:

He had a nice day in Atlanta and also in the Tennessee win, but his 3.4 YPC average is way down from last year’s 4.9. Fantasy owners were constantly bitching because he wasn’t finding the end zone.

A lot of his runs look something like this, where blockers are being pushed into the backfield and he finds himself trying to juke or create something for himself two yards behind the line of scrimmage: Continue Reading

Don’t Pray for Dolphins Fans, They’re Already Dead

Coggin Toboggan - October 31, 2017

Poor Miami Dolphins fans. First the franchise loses its young, FINALLY successful quarterback Ryan Tannehill when he shredded every ligament in his knee during a non-contact play in training camp. THEN they decided to replace him with a barely coherent and decidedly uninterested Jay Cutler, who likely spent all off-season ripping Marlboro Reds and “training” for his new job as an announcer for CBS. Surprisingly, that well-thought-out move has not been a good one, to the tune of Cutler averaging 165 yards per game with only seven touchdowns, five interceptions, and 8 million blank-faced stares as he wondered why he decided to come out of retirement for this. FOR THIS.

Their offensive line coach took a video of himself allegedly snorting rails of cocaine to impress a stripper that was PROMPTLY released to social media…which may not even be the most embarrassing thing to happen to the franchise in the month of October, considering they just traded an All-Pro running back who is only 24 years old and under contract next season for $765,000.

Oh yeah, and there was a hurricane in there somewhere as well. That sucked.

Sorry, Miami. It’s been a rough Fall for everyone involved…so lets continue to pile on, shall we? Lets take a look at some of the most tortured Tweets from this morning from our friends down in the Sunshine State after the jump.
