All of Chip Kelly's Influences Are Finally Gone

Ding-Dong! The witch is dead. With Nelson Agholor heading to the Raiders, all of Chip Kelly's players are now officially off of the Philadelphia Eagles, or out of the league altogether.

If you want to get extremely technical, this isn't true because of Lane Johnson and Zach Ertz still being on the roster. However, since that was Chip Kelly's first year with the Birds, we don't know how much influence he had with those draft picks. Let's just assume all credit for them goes to Howie Roseman.

In 2014, coming off of an NFC East title and "revolutionizing" the NFL, it seemed Kelly gained trust from the higher brass of the organization, and we started seeing that reflected in some of the signings and draft picks. Here's a look at the 2014 additions.

2014 saw the Eagles start out hot (9-3) but then failed to make the playoffs when they finished with a 10-6 record. Kelly gained full trust from Jeffrey Lurie, and the 2015 team would be solely his responsibility to put together. Here's what those offseason additions looked like:

It took half of a decade, but now we can say that, without a doubt, the Eagles are 100$ Howie Roseman's team and responsibility.
