CSN Philly still believes the Eagles will find an "acceptable" trade offer for ILB Mychal Kendricks.

Kendricks and Brandon Boykin are expected to be the next talented Eagles that Chip Kelly lets loose. He can especially afford to move on from Kendricks with DeMeco Ryans, Kiko Alonso, Najee Goode, Brad Jones and rookie Jordan Hicks at inside linebacker. The Eagles were reportedly offering Kendricks in exchange for a second-round pick at the draft.

Trey Burton is expected to be groomed into the Eagles' future No. 2 tight end.

Burton, an undrafted project out of Florida last year, is a plus special teamer for now. Eventually, the Eagles hope he can play that role and back up Zach Ertz. Burton played some wideout at the University of Florida.

CSN Philly's Geoff Mosher expects Zach Ertz to make a "sizable jump in snaps" this season.

Ertz played 40.5 percent of the snaps as a rookie in 2013 and only progressed to 50.3 percent last year. Too often he was watching from the sideline as superior blocker Brent Celek held the edge in Chip Kelly's scheme. Celek returns for his ninth season in Philly, but Ertz is expected to surpass him on the back of improvement in the blocking department. We know the Eagles need him on the field as a receiver now that Jeremy Maclin is gone -- especially in red zone. Ertz will break out if he gets roughly 75 percent of the snaps.

Eagles signed OG John Moffitt to a one-year contract.

The No. 75 overall pick of the 2011 draft by the Seahawks, Moffitt retired midway through the 2013 season as he dealt with personal issues. Going on 29, Moffitt hasn't played meaningful snaps since 2012, and wasn't overly effective as a regular NFLer. Nevertheless, the Eagles get a player with a mauling profile two weeks after releasing Evan Mathis. Moffitt won't be assured of cracking the 53-man roster.

Eagles NT Bennie Logan led all defensive tackles in solo tackles last season with 44.

Also from Pro Football Focus, Logan was second among 81 qualifying defensive tackles in solo stops (solo tackles that constitute an offensive failure). The tackle stat has become mostly meaningless in the football world, so these numbers give us a better idea. The Eagles' run defense allowed just 3.7 YPC last season (fourth in the NFL), and Philly was one of four teams not to allow a 40-yard run.

Coach Chip Kelly said Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez are openly competing for the starting quarterback job.

If all goes according to plan, Bradford will win the job with ease. The Eagles dealt Nick Foles and a second-round pick for Bradford and his $13 million salary. He's not going to sit behind Sanchez if healthy. But Bradford has yet to participate in any 11-on-11 drills with his new team, allowing Sanchez to take all the first-team reps. Sanchez has reportedly looked impressive in his second year in Kelly's system. The plan is for Bradford (torn ACL) to be cleared for the start of camp.

NJ.com's Eliot Shor-Parks predicts Tim Tebow will make the Eagles' 53-man roster.

Shor-Parks likes Tebow's chances because he "doesn't turn the ball over" and can "make plays with his legs." He also said Matt Barkley "isn't built" to be a backup and that Tebow offers more in spot duty. Even if Tebow makes the team, he'd be a distant third behind Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez.

Eagles coach Chip Kelly has "been really impressed" by WR Miles Austin.

"Catches the ball extremely well. Intelligent. Knows the subtleties of the exact route running, kind of exactly where to maybe place his elbow to get separation in terms of pushing off the hip and things like that," Kelly said. "And he's imparted that on the younger guys, which I think has really helped us to have that true veteran route runner in there." Hamstring issues have sapped Austin's playmaking ability, but he can serve as a mentor to the Eagles' extremely young receiver corps. Unfortunately, mentorship does not earn fantasy points.

CSN Philly's Geoff Mosher said Walter Thurmond should open the season as the starting safety opposite Malcolm Jenkins.

"Thurmond’s had a really nice camp," Mosher said, "and his instincts are far better than any other of the candidates." Thurmond has never played safety before, but he has the playmaking skills to be a competent center fielder. Health will always be a concern for Thurmond, but the starting job appears his to lose.

CSN Philly's Geoff Mosher considers Matt Tobin the favorite to start at right guard for the Eagles.

With Allen Barbre switching to left guard following the release of Evan Mathis, the Eagles have a huge hole at right guard and very little talent to fill it. A 2013 UDFA out of Iowa who struggled in seven starts last season, Tobin's claim to the starting job has more to do with a lack of competition than his individual talent. Philadelphia should be scouring the waiver wire for help during training camp.

The Eagles have gotten Darren Sproles reps at receiver during spring practices.

Sproles didn't line up wide or in the slot much last season. But coach Chip Kelly said he wants to find more ways to get Sproles touches, and in a crowded backfield behind DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews, getting Sproles some looks out of the slot isn't a bad idea. Much like last season when Sproles averaged five touches per game, his weekly workloads will be of the lightly-used change-of-pace variety. He's a fantasy RB4/5.

Josh Huff has struggled to consistently catch the ball during spring practices.

"It's mental plays here and there, especially when I get tired, or I fall behind on a play, or I don't get back in time and I don't see the play," Huff said of his miscues. In OTAs and minicamp where receivers are supposed to shine, Huff has been up-and-down. After being talked up before the draft, it sounds like Huff has settled back in as the No. 4 receiver. Seyi Ajirotutu is also pushing him for snaps.

Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski feels "fairly certain" that Zach Ertz will put up "big-time numbers" this season.

That's as long as coach Chip Kelly gives Ertz a sizable bump in playing time. Kempski named Ertz the player who impressed him most at Eagles OTAs and minicamp. The hype is starting to build for the second year in a row, though it feels real this time around. Ertz is arguably the team's best pure pass catcher, and he and Sam Bradford were said to be developing a real chemistry this spring.

Jordan Matthews is expected to continue to focus on playing the slot as a second-year receiver.

Matthews mixed in on the outside in red-zone formations during OTAs and minicamp, but he's been the primary slot man in three-wide sets. There seems to be an obsession amongst some inside the fantasy community about Matthews "playing outside more," but Chip Kelly sees him as a mismatch creator in the slot, where Matthews showed the ability to win regularly as a rookie. It's not a negative. Matthews may be a superior talent, but his utilization is similar to an earlier-career Marques Colston. Matthews remains the favorite to lead the Eagles in every receiving category this year, offering legitimate WR1 fantasy upside.

Philly Mag's Sheil Kapadia reports Eagles first-round WR Nelson Agholor has been "as advertised" during offseason practices.

"Shifty athlete with good hands who plays hard," wrote Kapadia. Agholor has been running with first- and second-team offenses during the spring and seeing time both inside and outside. He can play any of the receiver spots and should jockey with Amari Cooper and others for fantasy's top redraft rookie receiver.
