The Eagles are expected to lose top wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and are keeping quarterback Mark Sanchez, two moves that could signal major changes to Chip Kelly's offense. A deal is in place for Maclin to sign with the Kansas City Chiefs, a league source confirmed. The signing would reunite Maclin with former Eagles coach Andy Reid, who drafted the wide receiver in Philadelphia. The Chiefs still need to clear salary-cap space, according to ESPN, which first reported the news. Sanchez is returning to the Eagles on a two-year contract that is worth $9 million and possibly $16 million if he hits certain incentives, a league source confirmed.

If LeSean McCoy was "ready to move on" a day after he was informed that the Eagles planned to trade him to the Buffalo Bills, as a source close to the running back said Wednesday, then so should we. The eventual departure of McCoy - the deal cannot be finalized until the new NFL year opens Tuesday - will give the Eagles an estimated $50 million in salary-cap space heading into free agency. And there could be more purging ahead. But even if the Eagles were to re-sign wide receiver Jeremy Maclin before he hits the open market, Chip Kelly will still have plenty of cash to play with in free agency.

AT LEAST Sam Hinkie offered warning. When he assumed command in 2013, the Sixers' czar told everyone he didn't like anything about the team. Then the rest of the city's teams fell in with his scorched-earth campaign, leaving the populace reeling as never before. To its credit, the population is generally accepting. It began with Chip Kelly's release of receiver DeSean Jackson a year ago, a jarring move that, viewed through the correct prism, made sense. So have the rest of the decisions.

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 have until Monday at 4 p.m. to designate the franchise player tag, which they could use on a pending free agent such as wide receiver Jeremy Maclin to effectively keep him off the open market. If the Eagles tagged Maclin, the wide receiver could sign the tender for about $12.8 million guaranteed. Outside linebacker Brandon Graham is the Eagles' other top free agent. The franchise tag number for linebackers is about $13.7 million. Those salaries are greater than the annual compensation either player would likely draw with a long-term deal.

PHOENIX - It seems like ages ago, but Danny Amendola once was with the Eagles. It was for a cup of coffee, and he never played in a game in Eagles green, but the Patriots wide receiver said his nine-month stay in Philadelphia was beneficial. "I came into Dallas, went to Philly, and I was behind some great receivers that are still playing at a high level," Amendola said. "I learned a lot from them, and I knew that if my opportunity were to arise I was going to be ready. " The Eagles signed Amendola in January 2009 after he spent the entire 2008 season on the Cowboys practice squad.

MOBILE, Ala. - If the Eagles were to draft Ohio State wide receiver Devin Smith, known for his capabilities as a vertical threat, they might evoke some comparisons to DeSean Jackson. But Smith said yesterday he's more interested in emulating Jackson's successor as the Birds' top receiver. "I watched Jeremy Maclin a lot, especially when he was at Missouri," Smith said after yesterday's North team Senior Bowl practice at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. "He's a very smooth, smooth runner - just sassy when he runs.

Chip Kelly said that Bill Davis would return next season for a third year as the Eagles defensive coordinator. "I thought Billy did a really good job," Kelly said on Monday, a day after the 10-6 Eagles ended the season. "I thought our defense improved in a lot of categories. There's still things we need to clean up. " The first question of Kelly's news conference was about Davis. The Eagles coach, however, made it clear throughout the rest of the session that the team had yet to make final evaluations on the 2014 season.

THE FINAL GUN had hardly sounded before the tweets began. Jeremy Maclin was campaigning to come back. Trent Cole was begging to stay. Maclin, the Eagles' best receiver since they took him in the first round in 2009, can hit the open market and cash in on a career season. Cole, ranked second on the team's all-time sack list, is due more than $35 million over the next three seasons. Maclin sounds willing to forgo free agency and, possibly, take a little less Treasury green to stay in Eagles green.
