Chip Kelly could keep wheeling and dealing through the NFL Draft.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that defensive back Brandon Boykin and linebacker Mychal Kendricks could be moved at the right price in a trade, according to sources with teams around the league.

Boykin, 24, has been effective in the slot corner under Kelly, but the coach seems determined to build a roster of his own hand-picked players. The Eagles, who acquired Byron Maxwell and Walter Thurmond in free agency, don't appear done with their secondary rebuild. Boykin will earn $1.54 million in the final year of his contract.

Kendricks, 24, may be expendable in Philadelphia after the team traded for inside linebacker Kiko Alonso and handed out a contract extension to DeMeco Ryans. Kendricks, a second-round pick in the 2012 draft, is due just $896,060 in the final year of his rookie deal.

In addition to Boykin and Kendricks, NFL Media's Albert Breer reported Thursday that Fletcher Cox and Evan Mathis are veteran players other teams have viewed as potential trade pieces for the Eagles.

All players should have healthy markets. It wouldn't be a shock if they're on new teams by Sunday morning.
