The Eagles have lost their top receiver after each of the last two seasons - DeSean Jackson was cut last year, and Jeremy Maclin signed with Kansas City as a free agent earlier this month.

DeSean Jackson, gone. Jeremy Maclin, gone. Riley Cooper, here. Chip Kelly's decision to keep Cooper rather than his most productive wide receivers over the last two years might not make much sense, but the Eagles coach has never been one to evaluate based on paper. That may be most apparent at the receiver position. Understanding how Kelly values receivers can help explain Cooper's place on the roster and the departures of Jackson and Maclin. It also points out how Kelly intends to replace the 42 percent of receiver receptions, 47 percent of receiving yards, and 46 percent of receiving touchdowns that left with the two Pro Bowlers.

OH MY, my head is spinning. It's almost impossible to keep up with Chip Kelly and his wheeling and dealing. Apparently, he is moving as fast as the Eagles' general manager as his offense does on the field. Though it's almost too hard to keep up with, it certainly is exciting. Think about this, in a 10-day span, the Eagles' No. 1 running back was LeSean McCoy, Frank Gore, Darren Sproles, Ryan Mathews, and then, finally, DeMarco Murray. Even with McCoy and Gore not on the team, the Eagles have four quality running backs, but still no deep-threat wide receiver.

JEREMY MACLIN, the last major offensive weapon left over from the Andy Reid Eagles regime, will join his former coach in Kansas City when free agency starts tomorrow at 4 p.m., ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported last night. The news was unexpected, given that there hadn't been much buzz about Maclin previously during the NFL's "legal tampering" period leading up to free agency, and the few reports that had surfaced spoke of Maclin and the Eagles continuing to try to reach agreement.

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.
