Chip Kelly Had Odell Beckham Jr. Rated No. 1 On 2014 Draft Board

Mar 25, 2015 1:58 PM

Chip Kelly claims the Philadelphia Eagles had Odell Beckham Jr. ranked No. 1 on his draft board for the 2014 NFL Draft.

Beckham was the third receiver selected, going to the New York Giants at No. 12 overall behind Sammy Watkins and Mike Evans.

"I said it a year ago: I thought Odell Beckham was the best player in the draft," Kelly said, via Pro Football Talk. "I was right. We didn't have a chance to get Odell Beckham, but a lot of it depends on where you're selecting."

The Eagles held the No. 22 overall pick.

LeSean McCoy Trade Took Only 30 Minutes

Mar 24, 2015 10:56 PM

The LeSean McCoy trade to the Buffalo Bills came together very quickly. The trade was one of the biggest in the NFL in recent history.

The trade took just 30 minutes to complete after the Bills were "stunned" to learn that the Philadelphia Eagles were interested in trading McCoy.

"The trade for LeSean happened really quick," Ryan said at the NFL owners meetings. "We were all sitting there. We were having organizational meetings. ... And all of the sudden we get this call from Philadelphia and I think that was when the trade started. Probably 30 minutes later, the trade was done."

The Eagles called the Bills about McCoy being on the market, which surprised the Bills.

"We were just kind of, like, stunned there for a little bit," Ryan said. "We're like, 'Really? Wow.' All right, so let's just take it from there. Obviously we were interested and then the trade came down. We knew it wasn't going to be cheap by any stretch. And losing a player like Kiko Alonso is obviously a steep price, but we felt really good about it."

Eagles Likely To Sign Tim Tebow If Matt Barkley Traded

Mar 17, 2015 7:50 PM

Tim Tebow didn't sign a deal with the Philadelphia Eagles during his visit on Monday, but it could happen if they manage to trade Matt Barkley.

Barkley hasn't played well in limited action, but he was at one point a top prospect at quarterback.

Tebow would almost certainly be the Eagles' third-string quarterback if signed behind Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez.

Browns Offered First Round Pick For Sam Bradford

Mar 17, 2015 7:45 PM

The Cleveland Browns reportedly offered a first round pick for Sam Bradford.

It is unclear if the Browns made the offer when Bradford was property of the St. Louis Rams or Philadelphia Eagles or both.

Both Jeff Fisher and Chip Kelly claimed to have received first round offers for Bradford.

The Browns aren't counting on Johnny Manziel being a factor this season.

DeMarco Murray Expects To Sign With Eagles

Mar 12, 2015 11:00 AM

DeMarco Murray is flying to meet with the Philadelphia Eagles with the intention of signing with the team.

Murray personally reached out to Chip Kelly to express his desire to play in his spread offense with Sam Bradford. Murray and Bradford were teammates and roommates at Oklahoman.

The obstacle for Murray signing with the Eagles still would be money, a source said, as Kelly has made it publicly and privately clear the team will be financially prudent in their personnel decisions.

The Eagles are the most appealing destination for Murray due to their position as a contender.

The Dallas Cowboys are still monitoring Murray's market in free agency and would like to re-sign him, although Dallas has had numerous chances to re-sign Murray throughout the year and now.

Murray would consider a final, last-minute offer from the Cowboys, a source told Schefter, but he's going to Philadelphia with the intent to sign.

Update: The Cowboys are now calling around the NFL in an attempt to find another running back expecting Murray to sign with the Eagles.
