Bacarri Rambo celebrated his interception during rookie camp Sunday morning by running to Phillip Thomas on the sideline, jumping and bumping shoulders with him. The sequence previewed a best-case scenario for the Washington Redskins. The two rookie safeties could eventually help a secondary that provided more questions than answers last season.
Southern California quarterback Matt Barkley was the first pick of the fourth round of the NFL draft, taken by Philadelphia after a trade with Jacksonville.
This was one rush quarterbacks embraced.
Vick is entering his fifth season with the Eagles, and the soon-to-be 33-year-old quarterback is the oldest player on a rebuilding team. He accepted a restructured contract to remain with the Eagles, just two years after signing a $100 million extension that included $35.5 million in guaranteed money.
For the past four seasons, Chip Kelly coached the University of Oregon and built one of college football's most dynamic programs. The protocols he established there included scoring points, winning games and scoring more points. Now he hopes to do the same in Philadelphia.
Michael Vick took a significant pay cut to stay with the Philadelphia Eagles and compete for a starting job.
Vick, who was injured and inconsistent last season, eventually giving way to rookie Nick Foles, now has a three-year contract, and will compete with Foles to see who runs new coach Chip Kelly's offense this season.
Moments after Chip Kelly's plane landed, he was handed a new Eagles visor and received a warm greeting from fans gathered at the airport.
Torn between loyalty to his players and accepting a new challenge, Chip Kelly ultimately chose the NFL and the Philadelphia Eagles.
