If Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly really wants to erase any thought of him being a “racist”, he should cut wide receiver Riley Cooper immediately…or at least that’s what one person believes. There’s also more and more hype building around another wide receiver in Philadelphia, first-round pick Nelson Agholor is generating quite a buzz due to his mentality and work ethic he is showcasing so far in midnight green. All that and more in this morning’s serving of Bacon, Eggs and Eagles!
If Chip Kelly wants to halt racism allegations, he’ll cut Riley Cooper ASAP – Angelo Cataldi of PhillyVoice.com
"In the chaos of this wild off-season, Chip Kelly has taken full control of Eagles personnel, has remade the roster with players committed to his ideals and has managed to tune out all the noise accompanying his many controversial decisions.Unfortunately, there is one move he refuses to make. The coach simply will not get rid of Riley Cooper.He has to get rid of Riley Cooper."
WR Tales: Stories Of Early Lessons – Dave Spadaro of PhiladelphiaEagles.com
"Maybe the historic Class of 2014 wipes away the perception that rookie wide receivers don’t thrive in the NFL. Jordan Matthews, who we saw every week, was proof of the new day at wide receiver in the league. He caught 67 passes for 872 yards and eight touchdowns in his highly successful rookie season, one of a handful of rookie wideouts who stepped right into the big time and made an instant impact.Can Nelson Agholor have the same early success? It’s a question that Agholor was asked last week as the Rookie Minicamp began, and he brushed it off with professionalism and reality: “That’s not the conversation right now,” he said, instead focusing on the day-to-day goal of improvement.”"
Will Agholor Make A Smooth Transition? – Chris McPherson of PhiladelphiaEagles.com
"Former National Championship-winning quarterback Tee Martin is now the wide receivers coach/pass game coordinator for USC and has been able to watch the development of Nelson Agholor.Before the NFL Draft, Martin said that quarterback Mark Sanchez returned to his alma mater to talk about the Eagles offense. USC transitioned from a West Coast, huddle-type approach last season to a no-huddle, tempo scheme that is similar to what the Eagles utilize."
Philadelphia Eagles Veterans Who Have Been Put on Notice This Offseason – Andrew Kulp of BleacherReport.com
"The Philadelphia Eagles made plenty of additions this offseason. Yet at a certain point, the question frequently becomes this: Will those front-office decisions ultimately lead to subtractions?Inevitably, the moves every NFL team makes send a message to veterans already on the roster. Oftentimes, the message is that a player’s job is on the line, as is presumably the case for many members of the Birds roster."
Best- and Worst-Case Scenarios for Each Philadelphia Eagles Rookie – Cody Swartz of BleacherReport.com
"Leading up to the 2015 NFL draft, much of the talk within the Philadelphia Eagles fanbase centered around how much head coach Chip Kelly would give up in his pursuit for Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota.The Tennessee Titans never wavered in giving up the No. 2 overall pick despite a reported whopping offer by Kelly, per NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht even admitted to USA Today Sports’ Jim Corbett that the Eagles reached out to him about his team’s No. 1 overall pick."
Although Eagles inside linebacker Emmanuel Acho may not be a big name on the field, he certainly has his fair share of hilarious moments on Twitter. Here’s one of his latest tweets, talking about the “Deflategate” news.
