Philadelphia Eagles players didn't know Chip Kelly was going to be released

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles' decision to release Chip Kelly on Tuesday evening came as a shock to nearly everyone. Even the team's players. Check out to the reaction to Kelly's dismissal. First, from Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com:

The team did not tell players that Kelly was going to be released prior to the announcement, and Kelly did not meet with players to inform them of the team's decision.

Players found out about the news from Twitter, reporters and other teammates.

The players that were reached by NJ Advance Media spoke on condition of anonymity until all of the details of the move had been released.

"Pissed," one player said of the news.

Did he have any idea it was coming?

"None whatsoever" another player said when reached.
