Chip Kelly was fairly active in free agency. He signed five players on day one, all of whom are under-the-radar scheme players. It’s a far cry from the Dream Team fallout of 2011 when the Philadelphia Eagles added a slew of Pro Bowlers.
This year, Kelly is focusing more on filling parts of the puzzle. Isaac Sopoaga is a veteran nose tackle. Connor Barwin is a pass-rusher with a lot of promise. Cary Williams was a starting corner on the world champion Baltimore Ravens. Kenny Phillips, Patrick Chung and Bradley Fletcher should all vie for key roles as starters.
And there’s still the NFL draft, in which Kelly will have an opportunity to add some of the nation’s most talented collegiate prospects. The Eagles will likely target another quarterback, a 3-4 end and/or nose tackle, a cornerback and a safety. As of now, the following is the Eagles’ current starting roster.
