CHIP KELLY, THE EAGLES’ CONVENTIONAL UNCONVENTIONAL LEADER

After releasing top receiver DeSean Jackson in 2014, the Eagles this offseason have traded starting quarterback Nick Foles, traded starting running back LeSean McCoy (above), invested heavily in running back DeMarco Murray, released starting guard Evan Mathis and traded nickel cornerback Brandon Boykin.

While roster churn is part of life in the NFL for every team, Kelly isn’t conventional. He’s more fearless than most, and his theory on past injuries not being an indicator of future ones flouts established thought (Travis Long’s situation notwithstanding). But if you can set aside your own NFL worldview and piece together where Kelly might be coming from, he isn’t necessarily as unorthodox as his moves make him out to be. In reality, when you analyze the more notable moves individually, you see a pattern of, well, logical decisions.

Let’s take a look:
