This article has been corrected. An earlier version said the Eagles' seven new players missed an average of 12 games last season. Chip Kelly continues to hand out money to players with extensive injury histories. The Eagles agreed to terms Monday on a one-year contract with wide receiver Miles Austin and extended and restructured linebacker DeMeco Ryans' contract through 2016. The oft-injured Austin has to pass a physical Tuesday before he can sign a deal that is worth $2.3 million and with $700,000 in incentives, an NFL source said.

THE EAGLES gained some cap room yesterday by restructuring and extending inside linebacker DeMeco Ryans' contract through 2016, a move that indicates the return of the team's defensive leader from Achilles' surgery is going well. They also touched off a wave of speculation over the future of the other 2014 starting inside linebacker, Mychal Kendricks. A source close to the situation said Ryans, who was entering the final year of his original deal, will get up to $10.5 million over the next two seasons, with $6.25 million guaranteed.

LeSEAN McCOY insisted last night that he didn't tell Frank Gore not to come to Philadelphia, during a series of phone conversations they had about Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Greg Roman, formerly of Gore's 49ers. After first joking during an NFL Network interview that he'd told Gore not to sign with the Eagles - Gore backed out of a Birds deal reached during the "legal tampering" period and signed with the Colts yesterday - McCoy said the 49ers' all-time leading rusher "did ask me a lot of questions . . . He asked me about Chip and the offense, and I was honest with him. I told him he'd get the ball a lot and he would love it. Chip is a mastermind - he finds ways to get the ball in space with the running backs . . . I was honest with him, for the most part.

WE LEARNED last March that Chip Kelly isn't afraid to shake things up when he released DeSean Jackson. We learned it again yesterday when Kelly sent shock waves through EaglesNation by agreeing to trade away his star running back, LeSean McCoy, and moving closer to releasing the second best pass-rusher in franchise history, Trent Cole. The moves, along with the release earlier in the day of cornerback Cary Williams, and last week's exit of veteran right guard Todd Herremans, are largely, but not entirely, salary-cap motivated.

The Eagles added their first free agent of the offseason Monday by signing inside linebacker Brad Jones, a 28-year-old, six-year veteran who was released by the Green Bay Packers last month. Jones, 6-foot-3 and 242 pounds, signed a two-year contract and will provide depth at a position that sorely needs it. The Eagles will return starters Mychal Kendricks and DeMeco Ryans, although Ryans is coming off his second ruptured Achilles tendon. Emmanuel Acho and Casey Matthews were the top reserves last season, and Matthews is a pending free agent.

Eagles coach Chip Kelly said Monday he would like both LeSean McCoy and Jeremy Maclin to return in 2015 but conceded that there could be tough decisions ahead. "We are going to have a long, full process for this whole thing," Kelly said of roster evaluations. "But do I want LeSean back? Yeah. Do I want Jeremy back? Yeah. Is that the reality? I don't know. . . . What if someone gives us 17 first-round draft picks for LeSean? . . . We'll look at everything. " The two high-profile players face uncertain futures with the team.

CHIP KELLY said again yesterday how much he likes his coaches, lauded them as good teachers. He said again that he "loves" coaching in the NFL - precisely because of the parity that has sabotaged his efforts to build on his first-year success. "Because," he said, "every single game, no matter who you play, when you play it, where you play it, you have no idea if you're going to win or lose. I think that's a tough deal when you really look at it. But in college, it's not that way. " Which begs a question that has been obscured by all those other questions about the end-of-the season meltdown of his secondary and that epidemic of turnovers, mostly by his two quarterbacks, which he acknowledged yesterday he had never experienced as a head or assistant coach.

When Mychal Kendricks' teammates were asked to give his No. 1 attribute, they talked about his athleticism. When defensive coordinator Bill Davis spoke of the Eagles linebacker, he focused on his versatility. Kendricks' athleticism and versatility are tied together, and help explain the blossoming he's had in his third season. But when asked to explain his improvement, which reached its zenith Sunday against the Seahawks, Kendricks focused on his mental state, which he said has become less anxious.

THE PICK This will be the Eagles' biggest win of the season, if they can pull it off, and I think they can. Seattle, after scuffling a little there for a while, is healthier now, and back to being really, really good. But the Seahawks are 3-3 on the road, 2-2 outside their time zone. And as good as Marshawn Lynch is, the run is what the Eagles' defense does best. Even without DeMeco Ryans, they would much rather you run at them than go deep against Bradley Fletcher and Cary Williams all day. I'll be surprised if Seattle churns out a whole bunch of points.

CONNOR BARWIN learned he was NFC defensive player of the month for November from fellow linebacker DeMeco Ryans yesterday, in the NovaCare weight room. That was fitting, because Ryans and Barwin were teammates in Houston the last time Barwin won a player-of-the-month award, for the AFC, in 2011. Barwin had six sacks in November. His 12 1/2 for the season lead the Eagles and are tied for second in the NFL with Baltimore's Elvis Dumervil, behind Kansas City's Justin Houston (16). "I was surprised," Barwin said.
