Andy Reid made Kolb look like a real QB Juan…
Right when I heard the news of Reid to the Chiefs and Kelly to the Eagles, my first though was that Andy Reid would trade for Nick Foles. He loves the kid and the Chiefs don’t have a starter currently on the roster. The Chiefs hold the #1 pick in the draft, but there is no QB that will garner that pick. With Vick restructuring to play for the Eagles in 2013, the organization could look to move Foles who may or may not fit the Chip Kelly system.
The Eagles are releasing statements that Foles is available for a first or second round pick, but I would be shocked if someone goes through with giving up that steep of a price for Foles. There are few starting QBs in free agency and no slam dunk starters in the draft, so the Eagles may be looking for some leverage in getting compensation for Foles. It would seem that the Chiefs make the most sense for Foles as he knows the system and fits a team need. Look for things to heat up heading into April’s draft.
New Chiefs general manager John Dorsey: “There is no quarterback where personnel guys can definitely say, ‘He’s a first-round pick,’ ” Dorsey said. “There were so many inconsistencies in the collective group. There was not one guy that stood up and said, ‘I’m the guy in the position this year.’ There really wasn’t one clear-cut guy.
“There are too many technical flaws, scheme flaws. There are so many different variables that there are a lot of people all over the place on naming the top four or five guys and who those guys would be.”

According to Geoff Mosher of CSNPhilly.com, the Eagles won’t use their franchise tag this offseason to retain cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who will hit free agency on March 12th. The tag number for cornerbacks is expected to be around $10.7 million, which would be an awfully high salary given Rodgers-Cromartie’s inconsistencies since being acquired two offseasons...

Vick said he plans on pushing himself and his teammates to improve their record in the upcoming season.
After the Philadelphia Eagles were blown out in their season finale, and Andy Reid was fired, Michael Vick blasted his Eagles teammates for “quitting, and their lack of desire.”
Vick I assume thought his time with the Eagles was over, and he was just fed up with the lack of heart around him. Fast forward about a month and a half.

Geoff Mosher of CSN Philly he’s been informed that the Philadelphia Eagles have no intention of using their franchise tag this offseason.
Mosher adds that CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is only player they would even consider.
Rodgers-Cromartie, 26, is set to become an unrestricted free agent in the next few weeks, but applying their franchise tag to him would run the Eagles ...
Michael Vick is still a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. Despite the speculation and heavy criticism, the 32-year-old quarterback retains a spot on the roster and, thanks to the hiring of read-option guru Chip Kelly, could very well be the starter when September rolls around.

People know D’Brickashaw Ferguson as a solid left tackle for the Jets whose name helped to inspire that “Key and Peele” sketch about football player names. What some don’t know is that he once competed on the early ’90s Nickelodeon game show “Wild & Crazy Kids”. D’Brickashaw appeared in a segment with him on a bike racing against another kid on a horse.
