Chip Kelly has brought another former Oregon Duck to Philadelphia.
The Eagles announced the acquisition of running back Kenjon Barner from the Carolina Panthers in exchange for a conditional 2015 draft pick. Barner, a sixth-round pick by Carolina last year, was buried on a loaded Panthers depth chart. Fozzy Whittaker looks like a good bet to make the Panthers now.
The Eagles, on the other hand, have questions at the position after LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles. Chris Polk has been out with a hamstring injury and has struggled to stay healthy in the past. Matthew Tucker has been the Eagles' No. 4 running back in camp.
Kelly said in a statement that Barner would also compete as a return man, where wide receiver Josh Huff was recently injured. Barner is the ninth player from Oregon currently on the Eagles roster, but the only one named Kenjon.
