PHOENIX - The Eagles have just $8.6 million in salary-cap space following the recent head-spinning flurry of free-agent signings (Byron Maxwell, DeMarco Murray, Ryan Mathews, Walter Thurmond) and trades (Sam Bradford, Kiko Alonso), according to numbers-crunching spotrac.com. But $5 million of that is earmarked for the rookie pool. That means that, unless the Eagles restructure some other contracts, it isn't likely that defensive end Fletcher Cox and linebacker Mychal Kendricks will be receiving early contract extensions.

THE EAGLES' front-office power shift was all Jeffrey Lurie's doing, Chip Kelly said yesterday. Oh, and trading way up for Marcus Mariota? Not gonna happen. The team's 2015 quarterback? Sam Bradford or Mark Sanchez, probably Bradford if he's healthy, from the tone of Kelly's remarks. Chip gets along just fine with Howie Roseman, he said, but the much-questioned drafting of Marcus Smith in the first round last year was Howie's fault. Anything we missed, hot-button topicwise?

Chip Kelly said Wednesday that Howie Roseman had final say on the Eagles' last two drafts, including the selection of linebacker Marcus Smith in the first round last year. "Howie had final say on the decision," Kelly said when asked about the selection of Smith, who played only 68 snaps on defense in 2014. Aside from second-round wide receiver Jordan Matthews, the early returns on last year's draft haven't been encouraging. Former Oregon players Josh Huff and Taylor Hart, who played under Kelly in college, were selected in the third and fifth rounds.

The Eagles have a proposed trade in place that would send Pro Bowl running back LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills for linebacker Kiko Alonso, according to two NFL sources. The trade cannot be finalized until Tuesday, when the new league year opens at 4 p.m. The blockbuster move sends the Eagles' all-time leading rusher to Buffalo for the 24-year-old Alonso, who played under Eagles coach Chip Kelly at Oregon. Kelly spoke at a fund-raiser in Cherry Hill on Tuesday night, but when reporters asked about the McCoy trade, Eagles vice president of team security Dom DiSandro ushered him out the back door.

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.

During this quiet Eagles offseason in which the silence is only broken by rambling assumptions from the outside, it was a rare moment over the weekend when former general manager Howie Roseman cleared his throat and had something to say. What he said is that, at least from his point of view, one of the most popular recent assumptions isn't a very good idea. According to Roseman, who spoke at the Geek Thanksgiving known as the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, trading up in the first round of the NFL draft in order to get a coveted player is rarely worth what you have to give up. He doesn't recommend it. "The history of trading up for one player, when you look at those trades, isn't good for the team trading up and putting a lot of resources into it," Roseman said, "because the guys who are really good at the draft, if you're hitting on 60 percent of your first-round picks, that's a pretty good track record.

BOSTON - The night before Howie Roseman's third draft as the Eagles' general manager in 2012, the deal with the Seahawks was already done. Once the Eagles were on the clock, Roseman picked up the phone and completed the trade, moving up from 15th to 12th overall to nab Fletcher Cox. "The trade was done 9 minutes before we picked," Roseman said on Saturday. "There was so much time on the clock that we then got another trade offer. Trade chat is nice, but moving up is really player driven.

History shows that trading up for one player in the NFL draft is not favorable for the team that must surrender significant resources, Howie Roseman says. That was one of the topics the Eagles executive vice president of football operations addressed Saturday while he spoke on a panel at the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference in Boston. The debate about trading up in the draft is relevant in Philadelphia because the Eagles would likely need to part with valuable picks and/or players if they want to acquire Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota.

INDIANAPOLIS - Andy Reid spoke recently with Howie Roseman, Reid said yesterday, and "Howie's doing good. " Maybe you read that sentence, shrugged your shoulders and said, "eh. " But for the Eagles' information-starved media corps, which has not laid eyes on the former general manager since the Jan. 2 restructuring of the team's front office, this was a gleaming, rare pearl of information. The way most teams operate, yesterday's opening of the NFL Scouting Combine would have been a day to talk to Eagles head coach Chip Kelly about how he sees his role in the draft process, now that Kelly has full personnel control.

INDIANAPOLIS - Ed Marynowitz's first seven months working for the Eagles overlapped with Andy Reid's final season in Philadelphia, giving Reid enough exposure to the team's new vice president of player personnel that the longtime coach praised Chip Kelly's decision to promote him. "Ed's on the rise, boy," Reid said Wednesday at the NFL's annual scouting combine. "He's a good one. I think it was a great choice by Chip. " In May 2012, the Eagles made seven front office transactions.
