Chip Kelly is revered in the NFL for his innovative way of the approaching football. This includes a unique offensive gameplan that served his Philadelphia Eagles well last season, and now he has a bizarre approach to the off-season as well.
Now that the 2014 NFL Draft has been and gone, preparation for the season begins in earnest. Pre-season games don't start until August, but training camp and off-season activities are first on the agenda for Kelly and his team.
However, NFL off-season rules dictate that coaches cannot have on the field contact with their players for another two weeks.
Not willing to simply stand by and let this time go to waste, Kelly has hilariously decided to use a remote control car to get past this obstacle and talk to his players.
Seventh-round pick Beau Allen has revealed that Kelly introduced himself by running a remote control car into the nose tackle.
"I was sitting and waiting to go in and meet with (general manager Howie Roseman) and all the front office guys," Allen said, via Philadelphia Magazine, "and Coach Kelly was driving around a little remote control car -- they use it out on the field because they can't do motions -- and he drove it right into me and was like, 'Oh, hey Beau, how are you doing?' And I was like, 'Hey, Coach.'"
It's quite a peculiar thing to do to cope with the "Phase One" period of the off-season workouts, but that's Kelly for you.
