Updates with Boykin’s latest comment from Pittsburgh

Not long after the Philadelphia Eagles traded Brandon Boykin on Saturday night, the cornerback criticized Chip Kelly, saying that the Eagles coach is “uncomfortable around grown men of our culture.”

Boykin texted CSN’s Derrick Gunn:

Boykin told reporters in Pittsburgh on Sunday morning that he merely wished Kelly had interacted with him more and that he wasn’t saying that Kelly was a racist.

During the offseason, running back LeSean McCoy, who was traded to Buffalo, told ESPN that Kelly quickly “got rid of all the good players. Especially all the good black players.” Tra Thomas, who formerly played for the team and was a defensive assistant on Kelly’s staff last year, said that some players see a “hint of racism” in personnel decisions.

On Sunday, Kelly seemed surprised, saying that Boykin’s departure after being traded for a fifth-round draft pick was cordial. “When he left, he gave me a hug,” Kelly told reporters.

Asked if it bothers him that several players have made the same allegation, Kelly said, “Yeah, it does. The reality of it is we have 90 guys and you’re going to have to cut to 53, so 37 are going to be disappointed. Obviously, I would imagine that all 37 of those guys have a different opinion than we have as a staff, but that’s what you have to do.”

Quarterback Mark Sanchez said talk about racism was wearing thin.

“That’s nuts,” Sanchez said (via Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post). “[During stretching today], guys were like, ‘Sanchez, ain’t you Mexican? And Bradford, aren’t you Native-American? And Kiko [Alonso] is Colombian. We’ve got black guys, white guys, Polynesian guys. C’mon, that’s crazy. It’s not even worth talking about. Stop asking the players about it. It’s getting old.”
