Chip Kelly trolls Howie Roseman by signing JaCorey Shepherd

Chip Kelly: still ice cold.

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles-Minicamp Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Oh man, Chip. You never fail to amaze me.

The Eagles, you might have heard, have been gaming the NFL’s practice squad system this year by releasing and re-signing the same two players, JaCorey Shepherd and Darrell Greene, back and forth each week this year. It’s been my favorite storyline. I wrote about it five times.

Well, on Monday, Chip Kelly’s San Francisco 49ers did this:

It was one of the weeks Shepherd was off the practice squad instead of on it. With Chris Davis heading to injured reserve, the 49ers needed a cornerback. Do you think Chip’s team was really going to miss a chance to mess with Howie Roseman’s practice squad strategy?

Nope.

And thus, the incredible JaCorey Shepherd-Darrell Greene saga comes to an end, not with a bang but a whimper.
