C.J. Spiller: I'm Pretty Sure Chip Kelly Has My Agent's Number

Mar 4, 2015 10:35 AM

The Philadelphia Eagles could have a need at running back with their trade of LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills.

The trade effectively ended the tenure of C.J. Spiller with the Bills, but it could create an opportunity for him to join the Eagles.

"I'm pretty sure that Chip (Kelly) has my agent's phone number so I'm pretty sure we might have to make a call over there," he said.

"I've never been in that type of system before," referring to the Eagles' hyped offensive attack, "but I don't think I'd have any problem adjusting to it."

Mayock: Marcus Mariota Will Be Project For Every Team But Eagles

Feb 9, 2015 2:58 PM

Mike Mayock believes Marcus Mariota is a quarterback that will be a project for any team to develop, except for the Philadelphia Eagles.

"It's not a real good quarterback draft," Mayock told Philadelphia radio station WPEN-FM, per Philadelphia magazine. "You've got two quarterbacks that are head-and-shoulders above everyone else, and even they have their own holes -- one on the field (Mariota) and one off the field (Florida State's Jameis Winston)."

Mariota was recruited to Oregon by Chip Kelly.

"From a physical trait perspective, he has everything you want," Mayock said of Mariota. "He's big, he's athletic, he's got great feet and he's got a live arm. So on the surface, the individual components all work. The problem is he's a projection coming to the next level because of the pocket awareness, the progressions and the reads."

Mayock also said that if Eagles officials "think he's the guy and that they can win a Super Bowl with Marcus Mariota, given people around him and a good defense, then I think they have to try and go get him."

The Eagles own the No. 20 pick in the first round.

Nick Foles Expects To Remain Eagles' Starting Quarterback

Jan 29, 2015 8:25 PM

Nick Foles enters the offseason with an uncertain future with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Foles has been the subject of trade rumors while the Eagles have also been linked to trading up for Marcus Mariota.

Foles continues to consider himself the Eagles' starting quarterback.

"I'm still being introduced as that, but then you get asked different questions, the rumors and everything, so that is a part of it," Foles said on NFL Network. "But still getting introduced, and that's, in my mindset, that's where I'm at."

Foles plans on being with the Eagles in 2015.

"It's always about the trade rumors -- that's always the hot topic," he said. "But that's one of those things where you just have to smile about. The only thing I listen to is what (coach) Chip (Kelly) decides, and that's all I care about."

Tom Gamble Returns To 49ers As Senior Personnel Executive

Jan 29, 2015 5:38 PM

Tom Gamble has returned to the San Francisco 49ers as the team's senior personnel executive.

Gamble’s return to the 49ers has been expected since Dec. 31, when the Philadelphia Eagles announced a mutual parting. Gamble had been the Eagles’ vice president of player personnel since February 2013.

Gamble formerly worked with the 49ers as director of player personnel.

“Tom is one of the most experienced, knowledgeable, and respected personnel men in the business,” Trent Baalke said in a statement. “He played an instrumental role in our personnel department from 2005-2012, and is well versed in our system having played a role in its development. This familiarity, along with his many strengths, will be tremendous assets as we prepare for free agency and the draft. It is great to have Tom back with the 49ers.”

Rams Interested In Trading For Nick Foles

Jan 26, 2015 12:47 PM

The St. Louis Rams have interest in trading for Nick Foles.

Foles could be made available this offseason by the Philadelphia Eagles as they also have interest in trading up for Marcus Mariota.

The Tennessee Titans and Houston Texans could also have interest in Foles.

"Love him," one NFL coach said of Foles. "Right now I would put him in the second or third tier of quarterbacks, but I think he is right on the cusp of being in the top tier at the position."

Foles inability to escape pressure was highlighted last season as the offensive line suffered through a season of injuries and poor play. 

 

Foles has been quiet since his injury, but did make it clear in his lone interview that he expects to be with the Eagles next season.

"I expect to be back here," Foles said. "I expect to be the quarterback. I love my teammates, and I expect to be back out there leading them and winning some games. I'm excited to come back better than I ever have been."
