Brett Hundley says Eagles' scheme most resembles what he ran at UCLA - PhillyVoice
Chip Kelly may not care all that much about Hundley's lack of experience taking snaps from under center, but the other two perceived negatives should be concerning. If Chip Kelly feels like he can work with him through the mental side of the game, and if he cannot land his protege in Mariota, the physical attributes that Hundley brings to the table could be make him an attractive second option at quarterback to the Eagles.

Eagles Draft Talk - Iggles Blitz
Walsh made the point that you need the right guy. That sounds simple, even obvious, but too often we overlook that and focus on the big shiny object. Guys like Michael Vick, Carson Palmer and Matt Stafford are #1 picks with more physical gifts than Brady, but none of them have ever played in a Super Bowl, let alone won 4. It would be great to see the Eagles get Marcus Mariota because he seems like such a good player, good person and good fit, but let’s not fall into the trap of thinking that getting him guarantees anything or missing on him means disaster.

"Byron is one of ours. It would be hard to see him leave but I would think his market would be pretty strong," he said. "He's a heck of a kid and a heck of a player. But we're going to keep doing things like the way we started here. We're going to keep drafting people and playing younger people and trying to keep the players that we can keep. We'll work on trying to identify the players that we need to reward, and will make those tough decisions about players that are under contract that you may have to let go to create cap room."

Here's why QB Marcus Mariota faces uphill battle against a draft slide - Yahoo!
Marcus Mariota hasn't studied Colin Kaepernick's game. He hasn't broken down film on Robert Griffin III, either. And Johnny Manziel, well, nobody asked, but it's a sure bet the Oregon Ducks star quarterback hasn't spent much time on Johnny Football. As Mariota put it Thursday at the NFL scouting combine, "I don't really compare myself to other players." He might want to start since NFL teams are doing it right now. And Mariota is already starting a subtle slide down the draft board because of it.

Don't expect Titans to pass on Mariota - Daily News
On these endless frigid days and nights, the remote possibility of Marcus Mariota again chucking footballs for his old college coach Chip Kelly is the only thing that is getting many Eagles fans through the winter. Well, that and Mr. Yuengling. I'd love to have some good news to report to them on that subject from the NFL Scouting Combine. But alas, a Marcus & Chip Reunion Tour continues to appear to be nothing more than a pipe dream.

What Casey Move Means For Eagles - PE.com
The first of many moves to re-shape and upgrade the Eagles' roster came on Thursday when the team released tight end James Casey, a move that has some ripple impact ...

Here's a trade the Eagles could — and should — make - CSN Philly
Last week, we documented the obstacles facing the Eagles in upgrading safety through free agency. Such is life when Nate Allen is considered the seventh-best safety about to hit the open market. But the Eagles could potentially upgrade the spot next to Malcolm Jenkins through the trade market, and the Buccaneers make an ideal dance partner.

The Sixers have enough draft picks to trade up for Marcus Mariota. (I'm the millionth person to make that joke by now.)
