PHILADELPHIA (AP) - While Michael Vick and DeSean Jackson are eager to know who will be the Philadelphia Eagles' starting quarterback, it's clear Chip Kelly isn't picking a guy before training camp.
Kelly's logic makes sense to others.
``I haven't been evaluating our quarterbacks because I'm focused on the offensive line but I really don't see the point of Chip Kelly naming a starting QB before camp,'' veteran Evan Mathis told The Associated Press on Wednesday. ``This is an entirely new coaching staff with an entirely new offense, which isn't even fully installed yet. It's not rocket science; whoever the coaches feel will help the team the most will win the job after proving himself in training camp and preseason.''
Vick and Nick Foles competed along with rookie Matt Barkley throughout the team's spring practices. Dennis Dixon and G.J. Kinne also took reps.
The Eagles are coming off a 4-12 season.
