Evan Mathis Release The Biggest Test For Kelly

Chip Kelly is faced with what is the biggest test in his entire career so far with the release of Evan Mathis. Last year, Kelly made a very shocking decision that saw DeSean Jackson leaving the tea. But when he made that move, Kelly sat comfortably knowing that he will soon be having the services of Jeremy Maclin who was soon going to make a comeback following a knee injury which he had suffered. Back then, Jeremy was going to take up the vacant position that DeSean had left vacant. Kelly went on even further and surprised many when he let go LeSean McCoy, who was the team’s running back, but he was quick in filling up that position when he brought on board DeMarco Murray who took up McCoy’s position. He later topped off his moves by letting go off Nick Foles only to bring on board Sam Bradford.

But latest move which has seen Mathias leaving the team late during the offseason might actually prove to be the toughest for Kelly.

Last week the Eagles opted to let go off Evan Mathias despite the fact that they are yet to find the perfect replacement for him. In fact the team are yet to make any indications that they are looking at adding an offensive lineman in their team. The one person who the Eagles have shown that they are interested in is Orlando Franklin but he has already put sign to paper and joined the San Diego Chargers.

How this will play out in the coming days is yet to be known but one thing is for sure, this is without a doubt one of the biggest test for Kelly yet.
