PATRICK CHUNG made the blood of Eagles fans run cold. Chung lacked closing speed; played without instinct; cost the Eagles innumerable yards in his 15 starts at safety in 2013. In a secondary devoid of playmakers on a defense full of uninspiring players, Chung was the poster child for its ineffectiveness and Exhibit A of Chip Kelly's obsession with employing his former Oregon Ducks. Generally considered the worst starter on a flawed squad, Chung was cut after the 2013 season.

There were more ex-Eagles than current Eagles at Todd Herremans' third annual Hoops 4 Hope fund raiser Thursday night at Vie Restaurant. A month ago, LeSean McCoy, Jeremy Maclin, Trent Cole and Herremans were four of the more notable Eagles and accounted for a combined 32 seasons in Philadelphia. But after a flurry of moves and decisions from Chip Kelly that had McCoy dealt to the Bills, Maclin choosing the Chiefs, Cole and Herremans released and eventually signed by the Colts, and Nick Foles traded to the Rams, the Eagles took on a dramatically different look in a matter of weeks.

PHOENIX - Jeffrey Lurie says he believes in the necessity of a franchise quarterback for sustained success in the NFL, and he hopes Sam Bradford can become that player for the Eagles despite an injury-plagued career. "There was an opportunity to do an upside gamble with an outstanding young quarterback who you hope can become healthier throughout his career," the Eagles owner said Tuesday at the NFL meeting. "It is so hard to get a franchise quarterback, as you know. It sets the ceiling on what you have as a team, and do you want to take upside gambles or not?

BYRON MAXWELL sees an environment in Philadelphia like the one he experienced in Seattle, Maxwell said yesterday. He did not seem to be referencing the wet ground or the blustery skies, as Maxwell introduced himself to a new city after signing a contract billed at 6 years and $63 million, with $25 million guaranteed. "It was just an easy match, it was just a perfect fit," Maxwell said. "A lot of the things they're doing here are similar" to Seattle. "It just meshed. " Maxwell referenced the emphasis on "daily habits," Chip Kelly's "win the day" dictum.

EAGLES FANS got two surprises yesterday. Only one of them was pleasant. Brandon Graham, the once-scorned 2010 first-round pass rusher who emerged as a useful, productive 3-4 linebacker in coordinator Bill Davis' scheme, was thought to be eager to move elsewhere - someplace that ran a 4-3 setup, and where nobody would ever again bring up the name "Earl Thomas. " Graham also was rumored to be looking for something like $8 million a year. But the Eagles eventually confirmed yesterday's report by Phillymag.com's Tim McManus that Graham would return to the Birds.

The Eagles pulled off a minor miracle in securing Brandon Graham and bringing the linebacker back into the fold, but they lost a potential free agent acquisition Monday when running back Frank Gore backed out of an agreement, an NFL source said. Graham had all but signed with the New York Giants, but the Eagles swooped in, sweetened the offer and the free agent decided to return to Philadelphia instead. The 26-year old signed a four-year contract worth $26 million with $14 million guaranteed and will be penciled in as the starting outside linebacker opposite Connor Barwin.

TURNS OUT, having Chip Kelly in charge of personnel is a lot like having Chip Kelly in charge of your offense, only there are no pauses for the officiating crew to get set for the snap. The Eagles blazed through the first 36 hours or so of the NFL's "legal tampering" period before the start of free agency tomorrow afternoon at 4 with a definite sense of purpose. The biggest move was the agreement with Seattle corner Byron Maxwell, first reported by Houston radio host Jayson Braddock, for what ESPN said was $63 million over 6 years, with a $25 million guarantee.

The Eagles sat out of the pass rusher shopping spree last offseason, waiting until the first round of the draft to address the position with Marcus Smith. They knew that one year later, Trent Cole would be older and more expensive, and Brandon Graham would become a free agent. The Eagles are now at the one-year-later mark. They released Cole and have not re-signed Graham. The depth chart at right outside linebacker thinned, although Smith's unproductive rookie season leaves the Eagles searching for more help at the position.

THE EAGLES yesterday announced they have released linebacker Trent Cole, as expected. A fifth-round draft choice of the Eagles in 2005 out of Cincinnati, the 32-year-old Cole ranks second in Eagles history with 85 1/2 sacks in 10 seasons, trailing only Hall of Fame defensive end Reggie White. A two-time Pro Bowl selection (2007, '09) and an All-Pro honoree in 2009, Cole appeared in 155 games (145 starts) in a Philadelphia uniform, totaling 795 tackles and 20 multi-sack games. "We spoke with Trent and his agent and expressed a desire to have him back," said Eagles coach Chip Kelly.

The Eagles officially released linebacker Trent Cole on Wednesday, one day after reports surfaced that his time with the organization would end after 10 seasons. Cole, 32, is free to sign with any team even before free agency opens on Tuesday. The decision was made after the Eagles and Cole could not agree on a restructured contract. "We spoke with Trent and his agent and expressed a desire to have him back," Eagles coach Chip Kelly said in a statement. "We have been talking for a couple of weeks.
