PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Chip Kelly's transition to the NFL involves more than turning the Philadelphia Eagles into a winner.
Since the team's final minicamp ended last week, the Eagles have made headlines for a few off-field matters. The latest came Wednesday when five-time Pro-Bowl left tackle Jason Peters was arrested in north Louisiana for allegedly drag racing and trying to flee from police.
Peters, who didn't play last season after twice tearing his Achilles tendon, is an integral part of Philadelphia's offensive line. He missed some voluntary practices this spring for personal reasons, but appeared to be doing well and seemed fully recovered during last week's mandatory sessions.
Handling this matter will be Kelly's first off-field challenge since leaving Oregon to replace Andy Reid. Of course, he can't say anything about it now because it's a pending legal situation.
