Eagles News: Kiko Alonso is reckless and wants to smash people

Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 7/31/2015.

Let's get to the links...

2015 Eagles training camp: 25 predictions - PhillyVoice
25) Most likely surprise player to make the team: Tim Tebow

Behind the ‘Legend Of Kiko Alonso’ - Birds 24/7
"I tell the guys all the time: ‘Kiko’s not all the way there.’ When it comes to hitting, man, he doesn’t care. He’s going to try and smash you. You guys will see that once we get pads on, get to see this guy play up close and personal. The way he hits guys makes you think twice."

Eagles rookie Rowe ready to tackle cornerback - Inquirer
"I strongly believe," Eagles defensive backs coach Cory Undlin said, "the kid can be a top-level corner in this league." The Eagles won't press Rowe into starting immediately. If veteran Nolan Carroll plays as well as he did during the spring, the cornerback spot opposite Byron Maxwell will be his. But there seems to be something about Rowe that hasn't stopped Eagles coaches from raising his bar.

Camp Storylines: There Are Plenty Here -
Catching passes at wide receiver requires a village on this roster. More changes here, as you know. Rookie Nelson Agholor and veteran Miles Austin join the ranks which includes veteran Riley Cooper and second-year men Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff. Can Austin help as a big-bodied and sure-handed receiver? He had a strong season in Cleveland with 47 catches before his year was cut short by injury. Can Huff contribute after an up-and-down rookie campaign? Does Matthews, who was so good in Year 1, move outside and become an every-down threat? What is Cooper's role within all of this competition?

5. Jeffrey Lurie sells the team to Howie Roseman: Forget the first four, this happens and Kelly wakes up screaming and may never get back to sleep.

Are the Philadelphia Eagles better or worse in 2015? - The 700 Level
More often than not, it all comes down to the man under center in this league, and even if Bradford is healthy, he's yet another unknown. We can project improvement coming over from the St. Louis Rams to a dramatically improved situation in terms of weapons, protection and coaching all we want. The fact remains Bradford owns a losing record as a quarterback in the NFL. He's never won or so much been a playoff game. He's never posted Pro Bowl caliber numbers or come particularly close. If you would've asked me for my opinion of Bradford in an offhand manner six months ago, admittedly I probably would've told you he's just a guy.

For Chip Kelly, Eagles' offseason was all about the money - CSN Philly
We’ve spent all summer scrutinizing the differences between DeMarco Murray and LeSean McCoy. We’ve speculated on the real reasons the Eagles cut ties with mainstays like Todd Herremans and Trent Cole. We’ve broken down the changes in the secondary and how they’ll impact the Eagles’ pass defense. So far, we’ve really studied all of it from a football standpoint. Who’s faster? Who’s bigger? Who’s better? Chip Kelly has a different take on all of it.
