It is set to be a big season for the Philadelphia Eagles following some of the strange and sensational moves they have made this off-season.

The Eagles made a big statement by luring free agent runningback DeMarco Murray to the franchise.

Who to start?

However the biggest questions came with their quarterback acquisitions after they re-signed Mark Sanchez, traded Nick Foles for Sam Bradford and also signed Tim Tebow.

These are now three experienced quarterbacks and the question was which will Chip Kelly decide to start in week one?

While everyone saw the trade for Bradford as somewhat confusing and many felt that signing Tebow was just to increase the depth chart, that may prove not to be the case.

Rumours are that Tebow has actually been impressive in training camp and that he could actually be set to challenge for the starting role.

One man who is full of praise for the former Denver Broncos quarterback is DeMarco Murray who has only worked with him for a couple of months.

"A very hardworking guy ... He comes to work every day ready to compete and that's what you can expect from him." - Murray on Tebow's work ethic

Murray has praised the work ethic of Tebow with the Eagles quarterback possibly feeling like he has to prove something after some controversial comments from Sanchez earlier in the off-season.

His return to the league has already proven to be a popular decision as his jersey was the 16th most purchased from in July.

How high will the Eagles soar?

The Eagles failed to reach the post-season last year and with a very packed NFC Conference again this year, they will have to be better in order to reach the play-offs.

With the big name acquisitions that Philadelphia have made this off-season, they will surely be harbouring hopes of the play-offs and probably more.

They will however have to overcome the Dallas Cowboys to win their division and who knows what the battle for the NFC East will bring.
