Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said Wednesday, Sept. 24, that he was surprised free-agent RB LaMichael James (49ers) was still available on the open market. He coached James at the University of Oregon. "I think LaMichael's a hell of a football player," Kelly said.

He's an awesome football player, he's an awesome person."
