If Chip Kelly wants size in his front seven, there’s no better place to start than adding the man known as Mount Cody to the Eagles. Terrence Cody is a metaphoric mountain of a man, standing 6’4 but tipping scales at 340 pounds. This would likely be the second largest contract the Eagles would need to shell out to land him, but Cody helped the Baltimore Ravens to the second-ranked run defense in the NFL in 2011. Starting Eagles nose tackle Bennie Logan turned some heads with his athleticism for a big man as a rookie in 2013, but it wouldn’t hurt to see what a true nose tackle could bring to the team, notably for the production of the defensive ends and linebackers. It’s difficult to run when there’s nowhere to go.
