The Philadelphia Eagles were busy on Monday eliminating all traces of the Chip Kelly era. Earlier in the day they sent running back DeMarco Murray To Titans and then the Eagles sent cornerback Byron Maxwell and linebacker Kiko Alonso to the Miami Dolphins.
The Eagles are expected to get draft picks in return from Miami. No trade can become official until the league’s new year starts on Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET.
Both of the players were part of former Eagles coach Chip Kelly’s offseason overhaul last year. Maxwell signed a six-year, $63 million contract after spending four seasons with the Seattle Seahawks. Alonso, who played for Kelly at Oregon, was acquired in a trade with the Buffalo Bills for running back LeSean McCoy.
