Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly has told reporters he would be open to trade offers for QB Mark Sanchez, presumably to let Sanchez have a chance at the No. 1 job with another team.
Sanchez is currently listed as the Eagles No. 2 quarterback behind Nick Foles, but the team feels confident enough to use Matt Barkley as the backup if they are willing to find a suitor for the former Jets starter. Even if he is dealt before the start of the regular season he is a mediocre signal caller at best and an even worse fantasy option while sitting on a career 55 percent completion percentage.

Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said this week that he intends to get Pierre Garçon’s numbers “back up” in 2015.
The Redskins are a mess, so this is clearly lip service. Garçon is a fine wide receiver, but to think that his numbers will rise with questions surrounding Washington's quarterback situation are a bit far fetched. The veteran wideout saw 45 less receptions and 594 fewer yards last year than he did in 2013, so to think that his numbers will increase next year is a bit preposterous. View him as a WR3 for now, but Garçon has the ability to be much more if the Redskins can develop some chemistry on offense. Analysis: David Kerr
