These moves would all be very beneficial to this 2013 team going forward and are just some food for thought.
QB- Vick should be released as is expected from everything i keep reading and hearing so Mr. Foles should at the least get a crack at the starting position next year which is well deserved in my opinion.
Word has it that Dixon is highly possible to join the squad which I don't mind seeing the former oregon connection between him and kelly to see how well that works. I believe a mid-round draft pick will be added to this roster as well somewhere in the 3-5 round i can see. E.J. Manuel FL.State or Tyler Wilson Arkansas both possibilities i can see the Eagles adding.
RB- Our RB situation is one of the best in the league and should be fun to watch this upcoming season no addition needed here. Except if you were curious to see what Kelly could do with a 7th round pick Denard Robinson???
Wr- Maclin and Desean need to perform at a very high level this year in order to keep the fan's faith in them it seems after last years disappointing season and deseans drama filled season from the year before both WRs need to step up big time for this team to succeed curious to see how chip utilizes their speed and elusiveness in space this year as both have big play potential if put in the right situation. avant aka best hands in the league is always a reliable slot man and 3rd down guy which should carry over well. Cooper is a curious player still as he has shown some potential with some good plays downfield with his size but i believe another taller 6-2+ receiver needs to be added to this roster but if the eagles choose not to go that route i would love for the eagles to add a receiver like danny amendola or wes welker if he escapes the clutches of the patriots as they are both extremely tough players which this Team and Wr core needs polished tough route runners who catch almost everything Kelly would be able to use these guys so well and be able to get them into space. Just a Thought...
TE- Brent Celek and clay harbor provide a good 1 and 2 at the tight end position hopefully Kelly will be able to get Clay more involved in the offense as I have been looking to see some more from him since he got here but celek should get plenty of short-intermediate looks this year in kelly's offense so it should be a productive year from Celek. I could see the Eagles adding a veteran via Fa or take a late round flier on a TE in the draft this year to see if they can shake it up a little bit.
O-Line - Everyone is hating hard on the O-line for some good reasons i agree lack of consistency and allowing too many sacks at times but it is very hard to perform at a high level as a unit when you are shuffling in different players almost on a weekly basis either due to injuries or poor performance. This upcoming year will be a huge year for the O-line as Peters, Herremans, Kelce, and watkins are all coming back from injuries that affected all their seasons in one way or another. That is 4 out of the 5 starters on this line that were out for periods of time this year and players like Bell or King dunlap are not going to perform at the same level they would but with everyone back and the addition of a player or 2 this off-season should put this group back at an exceptional level. It should be Peters-Mathis-Kelce-Watkins-Herremans suiting up for week 1 and hopefully lasting through to the superbowl ha. The verdict is still out on watkins however if he will live up to that 1st round draft status from 2 years ago but Jake scott acquired late last year did a decent spot job in the later half of the season which could earn him a good reserve role here, Reynolds, and Dennis Kelly gained valuable experience last year and showed some promise with hopefully only better things to come. I would love for the eagles to get Larry Warford in round 2 if he is still around as not only insurance in case Watkins dosen't pan out but in the case that Warford may be able to beat out Watkins for the starting job right from the beginning as Warford has the looks as being a great mauler and someone who could add some Grit and toughness to this O-line in the middle that would leave lanes looking like the Parkway out there for Mccoy and Brown to gain 100 yards a game. A man can dream sometimes right? In all seriousness this O-line has greatness potential it just all needs to fall in place which I think Chip can unlock in time.
