The Chip Kelly pipeline continues, as the Eagles added another player who played for Chip Kelly. The latest is wide receiver Dave Ball, a 29-year-old who was a record-setting pass catcher at New Hampshire while Kelly was offensive coordinator.

Ball broke Jerry Rice's divison I-AA record with 58 career touchdown catches.He went undrafted out of UNH in 2007 and has floated around since. He's never caught a pass in an NFL game, although Ball has spent time with the Chicago Bears and New York Jets. He also spent time in the CFL and the arena league.
