Eagles roster shake-ups has Philadelphia sports stores nervous
Chip Kelly has not been relaxing much this off-season, trading away his star running back LeSean McCoy and former starter Nick Foles in addition to multiple other roster moves, and one group of Philadelphians is very concerned about all the changes.
Philly.com reports that sporting goods store managers are putting a halt to any new apparel purchases as they do not want to be stuck with inventory for a player who may not be on the team when the season starts.
"I don't know what Chip Kelly is doing," Frank Sanders, the store manager of Lids Locker Room in the Cherry Hill Mall, was saying yesterday. "So, yeah, I'm a little nervous getting anything in here just yet."
According to the website, stores are particularly wary of stocking any Sam Bradford jerseys, as there has been speculation that the recently acquired quarterback will be traded as the NFL draft draws near.
