There's a classic song called "I've Been Everywhere" that's been performed by many artists since it first debuted on American radio in 1962 (in fact, the song was originally written by Australian Geoff Mack in 1959). If you know the tune, you know that the singer rattles off an impressive list of all of the places that he's been to. Here, take a listen:
Over the last few months, it seems like Chip Kelly has been aiming to write his own version of the song.
According to NFL.com's Bryan Fisher, Kelly has reportedly been to at least 12 pro day workouts this offseason. Of course, going to pro days is part of the job, but it's not every day that an NFL head coach attends 12 such workouts in the same year. In fact, NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt tweeted that he's never seen one coach at so many of these different workout days.
According to the report, Kelly's stops have included Pittsburgh, Ohio State, Temple, Alabama, Louisville, Florida State, Virginia Tech, Missouri, Vanderbilt, Texas A&M, Penn State, and most recently, LSU.
It's clear that Kelly is doing his homework and going the extra mile, or the extra 11,000 miles, to make sure that he and the rest of the Eagles personnel department know everything that they need to as they head into May's NFL Draft.
