Philadelphia Eagles' Chip Kelly declines fan wedding RSVP because of NFL Draft (Photo)


For whatever reason, it’s become a rather popular fad to send your favorite athlete (or in this instance, coach) a wedding invite.

What started with a player or two kindly responded has turned into a mild phenomenon and now players/coaches have to respond as if they don’t, they’ll likely be blasted on social media.

I’m guessing that’s what Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly was thinking when he kindly sent back a wedding RSVP sent to him by a rabid Eagles fan, inviting him to his nuptials.

Maybe Kelly was actually interested in going – I mean – who turns down free cake?! But alas, he’s a little busy that weekend with the 2014 NFL Draft that weekend.

Now, first off, what are you doing as a sports fan planning your wedding on the NFL Draft weekend? And more importantly, how did you not remember it was the draft?

Still, kind gesture by Chip to send back the autographed note.

Swell guy – sans the whole running up the score thing.
