Chaney: I'll be ready for minicamp

Linebacker Jamar Chaney talked to the Eagles' team Web site today, and said he'd be ready to practice in April even after having offseason surgery to repair a herniated disk in his neck. He said the surgery will help him from suffering the same injury again.

"It's coming along pretty good now," Chaney told PhiladelphiaEagles.com "By the end of this month, maybe next month, I should be back to myself 100 percent. I feel pretty good now, working out, squatting, bench pressing, doing the normal stuff I would be doing in the offseason."

He said he should be ready for minicamps and OTAs.

Chaney also backed the team's decision to bring back Juan Castillo as defensive coordinator.

"We're happy he's back because we went through a change last year with a new defensive coordinator, and it takes time to learn the scheme," he said. "This organization, I don't think they're trying to build for the future. We're trying to win right now, so the best thing is for Juan to come back because we already know the scheme."
