#DuckBias: Could the Eagles be interested in Drew Davis?

A familiar face for Chip Kelly could be an option on the free agent market.

With Jeremy Maclin headed to Kansas City, the Eagles have a big hole in the team's wide receiver corps. While the big name receivers are pretty much off the market, Chip Kelly may be looking for depth with upside.

Kelly's former Oregon receiver Drew Davis was not given a restricted tender by the Falcons and is now a free agent. Perhaps, Kelly would be willing to reunite with his former college play-maker.

Philadelphia fans may remember Davis from his breakout game in a win against the Eagles in 2012. He scored his first career touchdown against the Eagles and helped lift the Falcons to victory. He has since been mostly a special teams player but could be of value as a depth receiver in the right offense.

Davis played behind the likes of Roddy White, Julio Jones, Eric Weems and Harry Douglas, so he didn't receive a lot of snaps in Atlanta. The former undrafted free agent has caught 16 passes for 256 receiving yards and three touchdowns in three seasons.
