Word of Jamaal Charles' release from the Chiefs had many National Football League teams digging into his recent injury history and contemplating whether the 30-year-old running back, the most productive in Kansas City history would be a good pick up when free agency begins on March 9.
Pederson and Charles spent three seasons together in Kansas City.
The Eagles want to add talent, but an offseason priority is also developing the young players who are already on the roster.
The Eagles, of course, need help at both positions. Well, the Philadelphia Eagles provided fans with some insight into this realm on Thursday morning as the franchise released footage of their 2016 NFL Combine interview with quarterback Carson Wentz.
Roseman said it's not going to be a quick fix, and that he wants to build through the draft in order for the new players to grow with Wentz over the next several years.
"We're not sitting here and saying we're one player away - that if we just sign this one guy, that's going to put us in position to just get over the top", Roseman said on Wednesday. On Wednesday, Pederson said that the Eagles will look into connecting those dots as well. The Eagles are likely to move on from Ryan Mathews this offseason, making Darren Sproles and Wendell Smallwood their two best options at running back.
"I do [expect Kelce back]", Pederson said. He has been a tremendous player, a Pro Bowl player.
Despite his complications, Jamaal Charles is still Jamaal Charles.
Most notably the Philadelphia Eagles, who have a big coaching connection with Doug Pederson being Charles' former offensive coordinator in Kansas City. In his first year paired with Reid and Pederson, Charles rushed for 1,287 yards with 12 touchdowns and caught 70 passes for 693 yards and seven scores. But injuries limited Charles to eight games over the past two seasons. He is also barely 30.
At the National Football League combine, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson was asked about whether he thinks the downhill runner would be a fit in Philly. "It's something we'll evaluate now". "We'll grade him just like we do every free agent and every person that's released and see where he could fit into our offense". He tore his right ACL in 2015 and missed the majority of this past season as well after undergoing surgery for a meniscus tear. "It was tough for me".
