New Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly has the long-term goal of rebuilding the franchise for the Eagles back into a winning atmosphere, something that took former coach Andy Reid only two years.
Currently, the Eagles are a mess. They suffered many major injuries on the offense in 2012, including three of the best offensive linemen: Jason Peters, Jason Kelce and Todd Herremans. Running back LeSean McCoy suffered a concussion, as did quarterback Michael Vick.
Expect the offense to be back in 2013, except for one major issue. The team still doesn't know who will be the 2013 starter at quarterback. It could be veteran Michael Vick, 2012 rookie Nick Foles, a soon-to-be-signed free agent or a draft pick.
On defense, the Eagles were soft and ineffective for the final 12 games of the season.
Rumors have indicated that the Eagles could switch to a 3-4 defense in 2013, something not employed by the team in over 30 years, but that doesn't fix the enormous holes in the secondary.
Veteran Nnamdi Asomugha is a likely offseason cut, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is a free agent and may not return, and safeties Nate Allen and Kurt Coleman are both better suited as backups.
Needless to say, Kelly has some major rebuilding to do for the Eagles. It will conclude with the draft, but first it starts in free agency.
Here are 10 players that the new head coach for the Eagles should absolutely avoid at all costs.
