According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network, the Philadelphia Eagles seem like the team that is the best fit for Oregon head coach Chip Kelly and could end up landing there. NFL.com’s Albert Breer said Friday on NFL Network’s “Around The League” that the team most associated with Kelly right now is the Philadelphia Eagles. Andy Reid is expected to be fired after the season, opening the Eagles’ head-coaching position for the first time since 1999. Breer said the Eagles could be an ideal match for Kelly, considering the structure they have in place. Kelly likely will want personnel control wherever he goes, and the Eagles are a team that gave Reid control over those matters. Kelly potentially could slide into the same type of multi-faceted role Reid currently has. Breer also reported that the Browns and Panthers will likely pursue Kelly as well. If the Eagles choose to pursue Kelly, they’ll have company. The Cleveland Browns and Carolina Panthers also could be interested, according to Breer. That would give Kelly options on how he’d like to begin his NFL career. If Philadelphia doesn’t land — or doesn’t chase — Kelly, Breer hears another option is University of Washington coach Steve Sarkisian, who has both NFL experience and relationships with members of the Eagles’ organization. With all the speed that Oregon has, it’s obvious Kelly wants his offense to be fast and quick and that’s exactly the kind of offense the Eagles have.  The only thing he’ll need to do is find a quarterback. and build a strong offensive line around him.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";
