Eagles are trying to get bigger at wide receiver with recent additions: Arrelious Benn from earlier this month and Ifeanyi Momah on Saturday. 'Benn, who flamed out with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, is 6-foot-2, and Momah is an outrageous 6-foot-7 and recently clocked a 4.4 40-yard dash'.

And in an unrelated and unconfirmed story the Texans are trying out Yao Ming at Tight End. :lol:

Now that guy, if he's good, might match up well against our secondary.

he's only 2 inches taller than the fastest man EVER, height is an advantage for speed (but disadvantage for acceleration)

I dont know what kind of offense Chip is going to run there. But if he sticks with the same philosophies and the same offense that he used at Oregon then being a good blocker is the most important skill a wr has. Chip values that over speed, catching ability and route running. If you don't block as a WR, you won't see the field, period.

I'm curious to see how DeShaun Jackson and Jeremy Maclin enjoy that aspect of Chip Kelly. (Of course, there's a very good chance that he does things differently in the NFL).
