Mychal Kendricks has joined Eagles voluntary offseason workouts in Philadelphia

Good news?

According to a report from CSN Philly's Derrick Gunn, inside linebacker Mychal Kendricks has arrived in Philadelphia to join the team's voluntary offseason workout program.

Workouts began two weeks ago on April 20. Kendricks' absence was originally due to a planned vacation but then he spent some time helping his brother, Eric Kendricks, prepare for the 2015 NFL Draft. Now that the draft is over, Kendricks is back in Philadelphia.

A report emerged last week that the Eagles are shopping Kendricks in exchange for a second round draft pick. Despite this, Chip Kelly said he expects Kendricks to be back in 2016.

While the NFL Draft passed without him being traded, the Eagles linebacker situation only got more crowded. Philadelphia drafted Texas linebacker Jordan Hicks in the third round. Hicks isn't figured to be a starter right away but there's still a logjam between Kendricks, the returning DeMeco Ryans, and the acquired Kiko Alonso.

Kendricks is scheduled to play on the last year of his rookie contract in 2015. The team reportedly hasn't approached him about a contract extension despite being eligible for one.


Meanwhile, Gunn also reports Evan Mathis still hasn't shown up to voluntary workouts. Kelly spoke about Mathis this past weekend. The Eagles coach said Mathis has been on the trade block for two years now but Philadelphia hasn't received an offer for him.
