Just reported by every major news outlet in the entire world….. former Oregon Ducks, and current Buffalo Bills linebacker Kiko Alonso has been traded to the Philadelphia Eagles for running back LeSean McCoyAdam Schefter of ESPN says the deal has been agreed upon, but “can’t be made official until next Tuesday.”

"Oh hey coach, I would love to play for you in Philly," said Kiko

Are you a little bit surprised about this? Many thought McCoy would only be traded if it meant Marcus Mariota in return. Everyone knew Chip Kelly would make an effort to snatch Mariota in this year’s draft, but his intensions did not seem all that serious until recently. With talks of McCoy being traded so the Eagles could move up in the draft to a position where they could get Mariota, this trade seems to negate that entire thought process. But is this a part of Kelly’s master plan to grab Mariota?

One thing Ducks fans have come to learn is that you never know what to expect from Kelly. One thing Eagles fans will learn if they haven’t already, is – YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT FROM CHIP KELLY.

Stay tuned to FishDuck.com, as we think there might be more to this trade then one might think.
