Eagles | Unlikely to name starting QB until camp

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly indicated that he's unlikely to name a starting quarterback until sometime after training camp starts in late July. "We have an understanding of their athletic ability and how they run, change direction and things like that. But there are still a lot of things to be evaluated when you put the pads on," Kelly said. "It's still a physical game. A lot of guys look great in shorts and T shirts, then they disappear when you put the pads on. Until we get the pads on, we can't tell." QBs Michael Vick and Nick Foles split repetitions with the first team 50-50 through minicamps. QB Matt Barkley worked with the third team throughout camp, but Kelly said the personnel groupings mean little so far.

Fantasy Tip: Vick has voiced his frustration with the fact that Kelly has yet to name him the starter over Foles, and he won't get his wish to have a decision before training camp. Vick will have to get his wish by performing on the field, and we expect he will. He'll be a high-risk, high-reward backup that can be had later in drafts.
