On the first day of legal tampering, we found out the Eagles are trading away Kiko Alonso, Byron Maxwell and DeMarco Murray. With free agency starting tomorrow and the compensation for those trades still unknown, plenty of news will be coming in today.

7:32 — Sam Bradford may be close to getting a new backup.

6:26 — McKelvin talked to the media about why he chose the Eagles, Schwartz’s scheme and more.

3:36 — The Eagles signed former Bills cornerback Leodis McKelvin.

2:55 — Another ex-Schwartz player to keep an eye on.

2:22 — If the Eagles sign Chase Daniel, that means they’d likely cut Mark Sanchez and save $3.5 million against the 2016 cap.

1:54 — An update on the Maxwell and Alonso trade.

1:00 — Some action on the corner front:

The 30-year-old McKelvin, who has spent each of his first eight NFL seasons in Buffalo, played under Jim Schwartz in 2014. He had a career-high four interceptions that season. He missed six games that year and played just nine games in 2015 due to an ankle injury.

The Eagles and Cowboys seem to be swimming in similar circles. Dallas has apparently checked in on Nolan Carroll as well. — TM

12:47 — Top free-agent guard Kelechi Osemele is reportedly off the market. The Raiders are set to pay some major money for his services.

With a new precedent established, it’s safe to say that reps for other free-agent linemen will be looking to raise the asking price. This obviously impacts the Eagles. Will they be willing to write the check necessary, say, for the likes of Jeff Allen? Or will their sights be set a bit lower? Worth considering.

10:45 — The Eagles and Nolan Carroll aren’t on the same page numbers wise at the moment. Howie Roseman and company want him to test the market, per a source, to see if it matches up with Carroll’s valuation. At least one NFC East team is said to be interested. Seems like there is still a chance he returns to Philly, but they’ll have to find some middle ground. — TM

9:19 — In case you missed it, Murray isn’t the only (former) Eagle restructuring his contract.

8:09 — Zach Berman mentions a few players to keep an eye on.
