It's onto the next one for Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles. Just days after Frank Gore signed-but-didn't-sign with the Eagles because of reported concerns over Kelly's management style, the team's shifted their ACOG scope towards free agency's biggest prize: All-Pro running back DeMarco Murray. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Murray's flying to Philadelphia today to put pen to paper on a contract. Barring any last minute Godfather offer from the Dallas Cowboys, he'll be LeSean McCoy's replacement:
UPDATE: There won't be a Godfather offer from Jerry Jones. Perhaps C.J. Spiller will fit the bill in Dallas?
