Paunil: Eagles Think Jason Kelce Can Still Be Good
In 2015 the Philadelphia Eagles ranked 18th in the NFL in Sacks Allowed Per Game (2.31) and Total Sacks Allowed (37). Addressing the Offensive Line has been a point of emphasis for the Eagles and led to them signing Guard Brandon Brooks in Free Agency.
Josh Paunil said on The Sports Bash on Friday that the Eagles brought in Brooks to help Jason Kelce return to Pro Bowl form:
"I do think that Brandon Brooks signing the Eagles think that will really help Jason Kelce and then when they pick a Left Guard, presumably in the NFL Draft, that should help Jason Kelce. So their thinking really seems to be its not that Jason Kelce just got worse or you know that he was just so terrible that we really can't fix it. But their philosophy is if we give Jason Kelce some help and some talented guys next to him, he can still be a productive guys for us, he can still be a good leader and good anchor on that offensive line."
