The quarterback who receives the least amount of attention on the Eagles is the one who has been with the organization the longest. He's the lone quarterback Chip Kelly has ever drafted. And he's the only one who has not been traded or released by a team - or at least not yet. Matt Barkley is entering his third season in Philadelphia. He arrived in 2013 expecting to compete with Michael Vick and Nick Foles for the No. 1 job. He now must hold off Tim Tebow from taking the No. 3 job. "He's not taking my reps on the field," Barkley said.

Chip Kelly's insistence that he does not require a mobile quarterback was confirmed on Saturday when the Eagles traded up in the fourth round of the NFL draft to take Southern California quarterback Matt Barkley. Barkley was expected to be a top 10 pick in 2012 before he returned to school in a decision that likely cost him more than $10 million. Barkley was one of the most decorated players in college football the last four seasons, but a decline in production and a shoulder injury caused his stock to dive.

TWO OF THE top college quarterbacks in the country faced off at the Los Angeles Coliseum on Oct. 29, 2011, combining for 614 passing yards, six touchdown passes and 104 points. USC quarterbacks coach Clay Helton watched Stanford's Andrew Luck and the Trojans' Matt Barkley lead their teams up and down the field, Stanford ultimately winning, 56-48, in triple overtime. "You knew it was a really special time," Helton said yesterday. "That you were looking at some guys that were - wow, these are two really special athletes out here.

IF YOU STRAPPED Chip Kelly to a chair, pumped a heaping helping of truth serum into him and asked him whom he would like to see win the Eagles' starting quarterback battle this summer, many think he would say Michael Vick because Vick is faster than Nick Foles and Matt Barkley the way a Ferrari is faster than a tractor, and would be able to run the unabridged version of Kelly's offense, including the read option. While it's entirely possible that assumption is correct, Kelly repeatedly has insisted that it isn't, that the last quarterback standing this summer won't necessarily be the fastest one. For what it's worth, I believe him. And I'll go you one better.

TAKING COMMAND of a group that hasn't seen you lead it through a game - or even a practice - can be tricky, Sam Bradford acknowledged. "It is a little bit difficult," the Eagles quarterback said yesterday, after again throwing in seven-on-seven sessions during OTAs. Mark Sanchez, Matt Barkley and Tim Tebow quarterbacked for all the full-team reps. "Yeah, I wish I were out there taking every rep. I think it'd make it a little easier to take on that leadership role and develop some of those relationships.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA quarterback Matt Barkley announced yesterday that he will return for his senior season rather than enter the 2012 NFL draft. Barkley had been projected as a high selection in the first round. "I am staying so I can finish what I started," the 6-2, 220-pound Barkley said. This season, Barkley threw for 3,528 yards and 39 touchdowns with only seven interceptions. The Trojans won seven of their final eight games, though they had to endure a second straight bowl-less season thanks to postseason sanctions that end next season.
