Rollins' take on Dawk leaving

Thursday, March 12, 2009, 8:38 AM
It's no secret that Jimmy Rollins' sporting interests involve more than just baseball. The Phillies shortstop is always at Sixers games, and back in December, we wrote about him taking in the Eagles' 44-6 win over the Cowboys in Week 17. So kudos to Mike Missanelli for asking Rollins about Brian... Read more

Tra: I haven't heard from Andy

Tuesday, March 10, 2009, 8:38 AM
In an interview with WIP's morning show, Tra Thomas said today that he has had no communication with Andy Reid since signing with the Jaguars. "I haven't heard from him. ...I talked to [offensive line coach] Juan [Castillo]. Juan called me. I'm gonna give him a call today and talk to him,"... Read more

Quick L.J. Smith update

Monday, March 9, 2009, 4:30 PM
By now, I'm sure you've heard that Tra Thomas is headed to the Jaguars on a three-year deal. That further reduces the list of free-agent Eagles who are still looking for new homes. The most notable ones still on the market are Jon Runyan and L.J. Smith. Smith reportedly visited the Lions and the... Read more

Boldin: It's out of my hands

Monday, March 9, 2009, 8:40 AM
Free agency has slowed down considerably with many of the big names finding homes last week. And the draft is still about six weeks away, meaning the big moves that could take place between now and then will happen via trades. In that respect, the one player everyone's been watching since before... Read more

T.O. doesn't get into Eagles past

Sunday, March 8, 2009, 12:35 PM
I just got done watching Terrell Owens' press conference with the Bills yesterday, and thought I'd share some of the highlights. This crowd is undoubtedly interested in whether T.O. talked about the Eagles at all. Owens was asked about some of the problems he's had in the locker room and with coaches/teammates... Read more

G-Lew a good fit with Pats?

Saturday, March 7, 2009, 9:06 AM
It's a pretty quiet morning around the NFL. The suspense around some of the big names (Ray Lewis, T.J. Houshmandzadeh, etc.) ended this past week, and the Terrell Owens watch continues. There may or may not be interest in the receiver, depending on who you ask of course. But since I've become completely... Read more

Rosenhaus: There's interest in T.O.

Friday, March 6, 2009, 12:17 PM
Yesterday we wrote about Terrell Owens and the apparent lack of interest in the 35-year-old receiver. Today, Drew Rosenhaus (your favorite, I know) says that's not the case. “These are several teams that are interested in signing Terrell,” Rosenhaus told profootballtalk.com. “I... Read more
