      Kendricks is a strong candidate to be traded, according to Geoff Mosher of CSN Philadelphia.

      Analysis: The Eagles have a glut of talent at inside linebacker, with Kendricks joined by DeMeco Ryans and offseason acquisition Kiko Alonso. Both Kendricks and Alonso have strong three-down skillsets, whereas Ryans is more of a run-stuffer at this stage in his career. The team might find it useful to keep all three, but if a strong offer for Kendricks comes up, Alonso and Ryans would be a perfectly capable duo.

      Abraham is wanted by police in Brookhaven, Georgia for a charge of misdemeanor battery, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

      Analysis: Between his struggles with concussion symptoms and off-the-field issues, Abraham faces an uncertain professional future. He said this weekend that he's 50-50 on returning for a 15th season, but there haven't been any further updates, and a return to the NFL might now require dealing with league discipline.

      Wolff (knee) is no lock to make the final roster, according to CSN Philadelphia's Geoff Mosher.

      Analysis: Wolff had knee surgery in November and missed offseason practices, after recording just seven tackles in seven games last year. Walter Thurmond has emerged as the clear favorite to start next to Malcolm Jenkins at safety, leaving Wolff to compete with a group that includes Chris Maragos and Chris Prosinki for what will likely be two or three roster spots.

      Posluszny, who is slated to reclaim his starting spot at middle linebacker, is still viewed as a three-down player by the Jaguars, the Florida Times-Union reports.

      Analysis: Posluszny returns for the 2015 season after a torn chest muscle ended his 2014 campaign during Week 7's contest against the Browns. Prior to his injury, he accumulated 69 tackles and two sacks in seven games. Posluszny signed a contract extension in April, keeping him in Jacksonville through the 2017 season. The 30-year-old linebacker finished second in the league in tackles during the 2013 season with 162 stops in 15 games.

      Thurmond is expected to start next to Malcolm Jenkins at safety, according to CSN Philadelphia's Geoff Mosher.

      Analysis: The Eagles moved Thurmond to safety this offseason, and while he was initially expected to compete for a starting job, it now seems he may essentially be handed one. Second-round rookie Eric Rowe will compete for a starting spot at cornerback, and the Eagles' other options to play safety are underwhelming. Thurmond's role probably won't be conducive to piling up tackles, given that he's on the smaller (and faster) side of the safety spectrum.
