BREAKING NEWS: Not everything on the internet is true.

Including a rumor that Andy Reid would be replaced by Jon Gruden. Here's what the Eagles had to say: "Early this morning we have received several inquiries regarding the rumors regarding Andy Reid and Jon Gruden. This was simply a rumor and there is no basis to it at all. It is simply not true."

This was apparently started by former Eagles fullback Kyle Eckel and a post he made on his Facebook page. Obviously it picked up enough steam in the Web world that the team felt it had to respond.

We return now to labor disputes and rampant draft/free agent speculation.
