Kelly says Eagles will not trade Mychal Kendricks

August 2nd, 2015 by Sam Shipley | Filed under Eagles, General, NFL.

In his opening press conference of training camp, Chip Kelly shot down any remaining rumors about linebacker Mychal Kendricks. According to Kelly, the Eagles are not trading Kendricks, and told reporters to “write that down in ink”.

The quote from Kelly backs up a report from CSN’s Derrick Gunn, who reported last night that the Eagles are likely to keep Mychal Kendricks.

With Kendricks staying, the Eagles depth at inside linebacker remains a strong point for the team with Alonso, Ryans, and rookie Jordan Hicks all expected to be on the roster come week one.  It still should be noted that Kendricks still has not been approached by the Eagles regarding a contract extension.

Keeping Kendricks is with out a doubt the best move going forward for the Eagles. There is no denying the talent that Kendricks brings to the football field, and the idea of having newcomer Kiko Alonso paired with Kendricks has many Eagles fans very excited.
