Eagles Stay or Go: Roob's Part 4
Share This Post

In the fourth installment of our five-part offseason series examining the future of the Philadelphia Eagles, Geoff Mosher and Reuben Frank give their opinions on who will be and who won't be on the roster come the start of training camp. We go alphabetically -- part 4 is Kinne to Murphy. Here's Mosh's.

G.J. Kinne: Smart, mobile, versatile quarterback who spent offseason with the Eagles, then joined the practice squad mid-year. Former record-setting Texas high school QB is a good guy to have around. STAYS
Jake Knott: Another core special teams guy and possible long-range linebacker prospect. Was hurt much of the year but impressive when healthy. STAYS
Joe Kruger: Eagles are high on last year’s seventh-round pick, who could be in the defensive end mix this year. The Eagles need to upgrade pass rush, and Kruger will get a chance. STAYS
Bennie Logan: A bit undersized to be a full-time nose in Bill Davis’ scheme but did some impressive things once the Eagles cut ties with Isaac Sopoaga. At very least will be big part of the rotation moving forward. STAYS
Travis Long: Like Kruger, another guy the Eagles kept around in 2013 with an eye toward the future. The former Washington State Cougar will get a long look this offseason as the Eagles try to upgrade the linebacker spot. STAYS
Jeremy Maclin: He wants to be here and Eagles want him here, so they should find a way to make this work on a one-year, make-good deal. A healthy Maclin could be huge in Chip Kelly’s offense. STAYS
Jeff Maehl: Has the distinction of catching Nick Foles’ first of 29 touchdown passes this year. Didn’t do much else. GOES
Curtis Marsh: Former 2011 third-round pick returned to Eagles after brief stint with Bengals as emergency corner, but Eagles will try to upgrade cornerback depth. GOES
Evan Mathis: Finally got the recognition he’s deserved for three years, with Pro Bowl and all-pro honors. NFL’s best Ruzzle player, also. STAYS
Casey Matthews: Supposedly, he’s a great special teams player, but I haven’t seen it. Former fourth-round pick has been invisible since opening 2011 season as a starter. GOES
LeSean McCoy: NFL’s best running back will try to join LaDainian Tomlinson and Tiki Barber as only the third running back in NFL history with consecutive seasons of 1,600 rushing yards and 50 catches. STAYS
Ifeanyi Momah: Rangy receiving prospect was so raw Eagles didn’t even keep him on practice squad. He’s back and still intriguing at 6-foot-7, 240 pounds, but hard to imagine there’s a spot for him. GOES
Will Murphy: Former Oregon receiver was kept around on practice squad as scout team legs. Smart kid with some size at 6-2 but no room for him. GOES
