Chip Kelly talks about finding fits
By Calvin Watkins
The free-agency period has been pretty good for the Eagles with their trade for running back Darren Sproles, signing of safety Malcolm Jenkins and the re-signing of five of their own players.
But coach Chip Kelly hasn't been around to address what the Eagles have done in the first week of free agency until Friday night.
Kelly spoke to reporters after receiving the Maxwell Football Club's Earle "greasy" Neale Award as the professional coach of the year.
Kelly talked about finding right fits for the schemes instead of going after big-money players.
"I don't think price tag has ever been an issue," Kelly said, according to the Wilmington News Journal. "That's not how we talk about things. It's who fits in terms of what we do on either side of the ball and where do they fit special-teams wise."
