Duuuuuucccccce is officially gone, and Dhani Jones has arrived. Those were the free-agent developments yesterday as the face of the Eagles continued to change. Jones, a linebacker who spent his first three NFL seasons with the New York Giants, agreed to a five-year deal worth $13 million. He received a $4 million signing bonus and was told he'll be replacing Carlos Emmons, who signed a five-year, $16.5 million deal with the Giants on Friday. Duce Staley, meanwhile, ended his seven-year career with the Eagles by agreeing to a five-year, $14 million deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Stanley Pritchett will formally join the Eagles today. The free-agent fullback from Miami agreed to a four-year contract with the team last night. The deal will not be finalized and signed until this morning, so financial terms were not available. Pritchett is expected to receive between $3.5 and $4 million over the four years, with a signing bonus of about $800,000. The Eagles have now signed both of the first two free agents to visit them. They will entertain the third, Pittsburgh linebacker Carlos Emmons, today.

There are hazards to being a team's resilient teachers. Patience, often hard to find, is a must. Friendships built on commiserating, sweating and battling can disappear at the general manager's whim. Maddening mistakes must be tolerated, at least early on. But Ike Reese and Carlos Emmons, the Eagles' mainstays at linebacker through recent tumultuous off-seasons, relish their roles because there always is the flip side to consider. "Now the question is whether me and 'Los are going to be here," said Reese, who is entering his sixth season with the Eagles.

Cornerback Bobby Taylor has officially severed his ties with the Eagles, reaching agreement last night on a 4-year, $11.3 million deal with the Seattle Seahawks, according to ESPN.com. The deal includes $3 million signing bonus and significant incentives that could raise the package's value to $16.8 million over 4 years, the Web site reported. Among the incentives is $1 million if he leads the Seahawks in interceptions. Taylor has intercepted 19 passes during his NFL career.

One shoe has fallen on the Eagles' linebacker corps. The other remains poised. Steelers free agent Carlos Emmons yesterday signed a four-year, incentive-laden deal with the Eagles that will earn him between $6 million and $8 million. Emmons' signing once again brings into question the other shoe - that is, the future of former Pro Bowler William Thomas. Emmons will be 27 this season, his fifth. Thomas is a 10-year veteran who will be 32 when the 2000 season begins. Thomas terrorized the league with 12 interceptions and 121/2 sacks from 1995 to '97, but he recorded just 41/2 sacks and one interception the last two years.

With all its complex terminology and various schemes, packages and sets that make the average playbook as tough to sift through as Finnegan's Wake, the NFL sometimes seems better suited to code-breakers than athletes. So imagine the potential perils that await a team such as the 2002 Eagles as they try to assimilate four new starters into Jim Johnson's stream-of-consciousness defense. By replacing so many members of a defense that was their Rock of Gibraltar during the parade to the NFC championship game a season ago, the Eagles run the risk of turning the signal-calling that accompanies each play into something reminiscent of the Tower of Babel.

Tedy Bruschi handled the hits his teammates dished out in practice. Whether he will get a chance for contact Sunday remains uncertain. The energetic catalyst of the New England Patriots' defense, who suffered a mild stroke 8 1/2 months ago, must await coach Bill Belichick's decision on whether he will play against the Buffalo Bills. "I'd like to get out there and see," Bruschi said before yesterday's practice, his second with contact. "But it's out of my control now. " Bruschi returned to practice Oct. 19 after receiving medical clearance, but there was no contact until Monday's session.

The Eagles have demonstrated in deed what they had been saying all off-season. They were confident enough in Duce Staley's complete recovery to pass on several running backs yesterday in the first three rounds of the NFL draft. After nabbing UCLA wide receiver Freddie Mitchell in the first round, the Eagles used two straight picks to bolster their defense. They traded away two picks, a third-round selection and a sixth rounder, for Miami's second-round pick in the 2002 draft.

One day later, the other shoe fell. At least they let him go with his dignity intact. The Eagles released veteran linebacker William Thomas yesterday, less than 24 hours after they signed Steelers free agent Carlos Emmons. Thomas, a locker-room leader and high-character athlete, was scheduled to earn $3.25 million this season. The money seemed warranted, as he collected 12 1/2 sacks and 12 interceptions from 1995 to '97, when he went to two Pro Bowls. His production had dropped off, however - 4 1/2 sacks and one interception the past two seasons - and the front office and coaching staff considered him considerably overpaid.

He wears No. 51, same as You Know Who did. He dresses in the locker nearest the shower door, same as You Know Who did. He plays outside linebacker for the Philadelphia Eagles, the same spot that William Thomas held for nine mostly happy years. So it's no wonder if, during the Eagles' first two preseason games, you watched a big hit or a pass coverage by No. 51 and thought, Man, Willie T. is in midseason form. Carlos Emmons gave a little roll of his eyes. "I've always worn No. 51," he said.

IT'S THE SAME principle as trying not to stare directly into the sun. When Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning does his presnap-orchestra-conductor bit Sunday afternoon, waving his arms and walking around the formation to chat with his linemen, his backs and receivers, Dimitri Patterson plans to avert his eyes. "I'm not looking at him," Patterson declared yesterday, as he prepared for his first NFL start, after 41 games over five seasons as a special-teams player and reserve cornerback.

Andy Reid is going for win No. 100 on Sunday against Tampa Bay. Say what you will about the guy - and plenty has been said - Reid has put up some impressive numbers. With a win, he will become the only Eagles coach in 76 years with 100 wins and will join Bill Belichick, Tom Coughlin and Jeff Fisher as the only active coaches with triple-digit wins. So gentlemen, what say you about Big Red? I just cleared my throat. OK, injuries: The NFC championship loss to Tampa Bay to close the Vet. The NFC championship loss to Carolina in the first year at the Linc.

The NFL's free-agent season opens Friday, and to the fans of a certain football team desperate for an elusive Super Bowl title, this means that the missing links are about to be available for the right price. We're talking, of course, about the Eagles, a team with a fascinating free-agent history, albeit not always an eventful one. With another chapter about to unfold, it's important to remember two things: This isn't a great free-agent class, and the Eagles have less salary-cap room than two-thirds of the teams in the league.

The New Orleans Saints, one game removed from running all over the Eagles, couldn't run at all Sunday against the Chicago Bears. And now the Saints' improbable run deep into the playoffs is over, a Cinderella story that came to an unhappy conclusion with a 39-14 loss to the Bears at snowy Soldier Field. The man who drew up the defensive game plan to contain the Saints' dangerous backfield duo of Deuce McAllister and Reggie Bush used to work for the Eagles. Ron Rivera, the Bears' defensive coordinator, spent five seasons as the linebackers coach under Andy Reid.

On a cold, blustery afternoon, the New York Giants displayed the depth of their defense. Despite playing without three injured defensive starters and losing another early, the Giants held visiting Tampa Bay to 174 total yards and set up a score with a turnover deep in Buccaneers' territory in a 17-3 victory yesterday. "You know what? I'm not surprised because the backups, the guys who came in, are like starters," Pro Bowl defense end Michael Strahan said after the Giants (5-2)

Just what the Minnesota Vikings needed: another off-the-field embarrassment involving one of their players. This time, it was safety Dwight Smith, signed last month as a free agent from New Orleans. Smith, 28, received a misdemeanor citation from Minneapolis police early Saturday for alleged indecent conduct with a 24-year-old woman in a stairwell near a downtown night club. Coach Brad Childress expressed his disappointment and said he would discipline Smith, though he did not specify the punishment.

The Eagles' linebackers the last time the team played the New England Patriots, in 2003, were Carlos Emmons, Mark Simoneau and Nate Wayne. Sunday in Super Bowl XXXIX, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will look across the line of scrimmage and see three different players. That became official yesterday when defensive coordinator Jim Johnson said Keith Adams would start ahead of Simoneau at weakside linebacker. "I'm comfortable with Keith," Johnson said after practice at the University of North Florida.

In the bowels of Giants Stadium, Archie Manning waited, a jittery father eager to see his youngest son. Wearing a black jacket and navy New York Giants hat, Manning watched as one by one, the Giants walked past. Amani Toomer. Tiki Barber. Jeremy Shockey. And then, flashbulbs lit up the dark, dingy hallway. Finally, his boy. Just minutes after losing to Atlanta, 14-10, in his first NFL start, Eli Manning extended his left hand to his father, who grabbed it and pulled Eli into a warm embrace.

He was supposed to be getting ready for Sunday's game against the New York Giants. He was supposed to be a huge part of the Eagles' offense in the season opener at Lincoln Financial Field. Instead, Correll Buckhalter hobbled into the locker room at the NovaCare Complex yesterday on crutches. Such is life for the Eagles running back whose flashes of brilliance have been overshadowed by his brushes with misfortune. "It's tough," Buckhalter said as he visited with his teammates.
