NFL Trade Rumors:
According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, a “source with knowledge of Michael Vick‘s thinking” suggests that he is open to playing for either Chip Kelly next season.
The report also mentions that Vick was open to playing for Jon Gruden as well, but he never really seemed like a strong candidate throughout the process.
Vick is set to make upwards of $15 million, which means that he would have to be willing to restructure his contract before they could even consider the idea. Vick figures to be a better fit for Kelly’s offensive scheme than Nick Foles.
There has already been some speculation that the Eagles could look to trade Foles in the coming months and the Chiefs seem like a potential option given their quarterback troubles and the fact that Andy Reid drafted Foles last year.
It’s hard to put a lot of stock in this idea, but I guess it’s at least a remote possibility.

Bradley helped lead Seattle to the playoffs with the number four ranked defense and number one scoring defense.

The Eagles held a press conference today at 1:30 to introduce new head coach Chip Kelly.
The press conference, which aired live on Comcast SportsNet, focused mostly on Kelly and the organization's decision to come together and make him the next Eagles' head coach.
However, you knew Andy Reid was going to be mentioned at some point.

It was reported earlier that Gus Bradley will be the Philadelphia Eagles’ new head coach. It looks like that report was premature.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Bradley will arrive in Philly today for a second interview and is also scheduled to meet with the Jaguars.
Even though nothing is certain, I think...
Will you look at that. The Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears aren't hiring retreads.

Where to begin? So much to dig into here, and so few electrons to spend on it. List time!
> Mike Vick will restructure or leave. But the first option is now actually possible.
There is no scheme that can make Vick less injury-prone or get him back to the pre-age 30 wheels that would have made him downright fascinating in this offense. It's also an...
