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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

In a scene that won't be repeated, the man in charge of the Eagles' player-personnel decisions huddled with some media members at Lucas Oil Stadium during last year's NFL scouting combine and spoke at length of his affection for and commitment to the team's No. 1 quarterback. Howie Roseman went on and on about Nick Foles that day, about an up-and-coming quarterback whom the Eagles had an obligation to support, and things certainly have changed since then. No Eagles representative is scheduled to speak at next week's combine.

I THINK WE ALL can agree that Chip Kelly is a pretty good football coach. He proved that at the University of Oregon and has proved it again in his first 2 years with the Eagles, resuscitating a four-win team and racking up back-to-back 10-6 seasons. What we don't yet know, but are about to find out, is what kind of talent evaluator Kelly is. Many people assume that a good coach also is a good judge of football flesh. But the two don't necessarily go hand in hand. They're two very different jobs, two very different talents.

It's really an honor and I'm sure all of you shared my excitement when The Inquirer announced last week I had been promoted to Senior Executive Columnist for Sports Content. There's nothing like a new title to make a guy feel important, and I'd also like to congratulate colleagues Bob Brookover, the new Vice President for Sports Columnizing, and Mike Sielski, who steps into the role of Director of Sports Opinion/Columns. There's no doubt in mind that we will work together seamlessly to help the department achieve its goals with the structure now in place.

When Ryan Grigson left the Eagles in 2012 to become general manager of the Indianapolis Colts, his departure created a hole at the top of the Eagles scouting department that general manager Howie Roseman opted not to fill. "We're going to go with the people we have," Roseman said at the time. "Through this process when Ryan left, we kind of went with the people we had here, and we added some people that we feel really good about, and we like the dynamic as it's currently set, and we're going to go with it. " What Roseman liked best about the new dynamic was that he had finally consolidated total control over both the scouting and the football administration departments.
