May 28, 2015; Philadelphia, PA, USA; Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford (7) loosens up during OTA
Following a chaotic offseason full of changes, the Philadelphia Eagles roster underwent quite an overhaul. Head coach Chip Kelly gained full control of all personnel decisions and wasted no time putting his stamp on the team. Letting go of some players that were considered fan favorites including LeSean McCoy and Trent Cole, while also making his fair share of questionable moves as well.
Kelly doesn’t care what anyone thinks about the moves that he’s made this offseason, as long as it equates to winning football games. The world nearly ended when Kelly traded McCoy for Kiko Alonso, an inside linebacker recovering from a major knee injury. Then Kelly traded Nick Foles, who was the Eagles’ savior…for one season, in return for another injury plagued player, quarterback Sam Bradford.
These moves appeared crazy at first but now that we’ve been given some time to let them marinate, they don’t seem all that bad. Kelly has always been a man with a plan and he knows exactly what he needs to succeed in Philadelphia. But what does this all mean for the players on the team heading into the upcoming season? Let’s take a look at which players are poised for a breakout season in 2015.
