Tweetcap: Tough Decisions Coming

The Eagles have one more roster move to make in order to get to the 75-man roster limit by 4 PM. Head coach Chip Kelly said the team would make the announcement following Tuesday's training session. Here's the full recap of what Kelly had to say with even more roster cuts on the horizon ...

Chip Kelly: D. Kelly has played well, Molk done really well at center, really excited about Tobin ... 5 guys have really helped themselves. — Eagles Insider (@EaglesInsider) August 26, 2014

Kelly: Julian Vandervelde is "a ways away" — Eagles Insider (@EaglesInsider) August 26, 2014

Kelly: Releasing players is a part of the job but it's not a fun part of the job ... Position coaches and I meet with each player. — Eagles Insider (@EaglesInsider) August 26, 2014

Kelly: Hopefully guys we release get a chance to play somewhere else, had 4 already ... We didn't make many moves so we get attached to guys — Eagles Insider (@EaglesInsider) August 26, 2014

Kelly: We've had list of kickers or any player released by other teams ... We're looking at everybody. — Eagles Insider (@EaglesInsider) August 26, 2014

Kelly: Parkey has done well so far but there's a difference between practice and game conditions. — Eagles Insider (@EaglesInsider) August 26, 2014

Kelly: I like our depth at TE. I don't know if anybody else has three guys like Celek, Ertz, Casey. — Eagles Insider (@EaglesInsider) August 26, 2014

Kelly: Allen Barbre likely won't play Thursday night. — Eagles Insider (@EaglesInsider) August 26, 2014

Kelly on evaluating RBs: it's everything, pass protection, catching passes, are they following the blocking? ... Going to be tough. — Eagles Insider (@EaglesInsider) August 26, 2014

Kelly: In this league, if you don't have a quarterback you won't be successful ... You can never have too many. — Eagles Insider (@EaglesInsider) August 26, 2014

Kelly: For all RBs who aren't McCoy or Sproles, it'll come down to how much you can help on special teams. — Eagles Insider (@EaglesInsider) August 26, 2014
