Nelson Agholor said Sam Bradford (ACL) was "moving great" when the two worked out together last week.

NJ.com has already reported that Bradford is expected to be a full go when Eagles camp opens on Sunday. "To me, he looks great, he looks healthy," Agholor said. Eagles quarterbacks have thrown 59 touchdown passes in two seasons under Chip Kelly.

LeSean McCoy gave his take on how the Eagles will divvy up the backfield reps this season.

"Chip (Kelly) doesn't value the running backs in a certain way," McCoy said back in April. "DeMarco's going to do all the running. Sproles is going to do all the routes. Mathews is just in case of emergency because Murray gets hurt a lot. That's how it's going to go." Shady isn't the sharpest tool in the shed, but he does have intimate knowledge of how the Eagles coaches think. We suspect 270-290 carries for Murray and 80-100 for Mathews is a fair projection.

Eagles waived/injured RB Matthew Tucker.

He faces an 8-9 month recovery timetable after suffering a torn quad. Tucker spent 2014 on Philadelphia's practice squad.

The Eagles did an independent study on the likelihood of ACL re-injuries prior to acquiring Sam Bradford.

The research concluded that football players have a 10-12 percent chance of re-injury. That gave the Eagles enough confidence to trade away their starting quarterback and a second-round pick for the right to pay Bradford $13 million this season. Chip Kelly pointed to Drew Brees, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning as quarterbacks who have rebounded from serious injuries. Bradford is available in the 11th round of fantasy drafts because he's "injury prone," an idea Kelly does not believe in. "Everybody in the NFL is 100 percent injury prone," he said.

A source tells NJ.com Sam Bradford (ACL) should be ready to go when Eagles training camp opens Aug. 2.

Bradford didn't participate in full-team drills this spring, sending media and fans into a tizzy. They failed to consider that perhaps the Eagles were just playing it safe with a guy that tore his left ACL for the second time in the 2014 preseason. NJ.com's source says Bradford is now "looking great" and is expected to participate in 11-on-11s right at the start of camp. He's a great risk/reward pick in Round 11 as the leader of an offense that will put crooked numbers on the board no matter who is under center.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports contract-year QB Sam Bradford plans to play out the final year of his deal.

It's a smart move by Bradford, whose value is probably as low as it's been as he comes off back-to-back ACL surgeries. He also played in one of the league's worst offenses in St. Louis and now gets to play under quarterback-friendly Chip Kelly. It's an opportunity for him to not only rehab his stock, but also maximize it. With a solid, healthy season, Bradford could command an Andy Dalton deal.

Mark Sanchez led workouts featuring Eagles players in San Diego last week.

Darren Sproles, Zach Ertz, Ryan Mathews and Jordan Matthews were among 11 Eagles players that shared a house and trained together. It's a version of the old "Jets West" Sanchez ran with Gang Green. Sanchez enters camp with a very steep hill to climb if he's going to win the starting job, but he has continuity on his side. Sam Bradford (ACL) has barely worked with his new teammates.

CSN Philly's John Boruk considers Nolan Carroll the favorite for the starting corner job opposite Byron Maxwell.

"He's taken the majority of the first-team reps," Boruk said. "Chip Kelly has said that he's done an unbelievable job so far." Rookie Eric Rowe could push him, but Carroll has the size (6'1/205) Chip Kelly covets on the outside. If the Eagles are truly this high on Carroll, it's worth wondering why he didn't start over Bradley Fletcher last year.

The Philadelphia Inquirer's Zach Berman said Brandon Boykin is "resigned" to being nothing more than a slot corner in Philadelphia.

Chip Kelly has told Boykin he can compete for an outside role, but Boykin does not fit the "big guy" preferences of the head coach. Boykin said earlier this season being considered only a slot corner has gotten "really old," but he will not be able to do much about as long as he plays for Kelly. Unless he is traded, Boykin will fill a limited role again this season.

An anonymous NFL executive told the Newark Star-Ledger that first-round WR Nelson Agholor will have an immediate impact in Chip Kelly’s offense.

"He’ll come in and produce right away," the source said. "He has a great approach. And in that offense, he’ll put up numbers." Agholor saw time on the outside and in the slot at OTAs. He projects to get the majority of his snaps as Jeremy Maclin’s replacement at Z receiver. Agholor should push Amari Cooper to be this year's top redraft rookie, and is locked in as a top-four wideout in Dynasty rookie drafts.
Jul 8 - 5:19 PM

NJ.com says Josh Huff was "very impressive" through OTAs and minicamp.

This is the most positive take we've heard on Huff's offseason, as some Eagles beat writers were disappointed in his performance. In the end, Huff will have to step up with the pads on in August if he is going to beat out blocker Riley Cooper for the No. 3 wideout job behind Jordan Matthews and Nelson Agholor. In a worst-case scenario, Huff will end up as a sub-package receiver and return man.

Eagles RB Kenjon Barner is expected to land on the practice squad this season.

Although Barner is one of "Chip's guys" from Oregon, he did not appear in a game last season. The undersized returner and space back projects as insurance behind Darren Sproles.

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.
