The Eagles and Seahawks were talking trade after all. But the two teams weren't haggling over quarterbacks - or at least not yet. They struck a deal when the Eagles traded defensive end Chris Clemons and a fourth-round pick to Seattle in exchange for defensive end Darryl Tapp. The Eagles also signed the four-year pro to a three-year contract extension, pending a physical, according to a league source. The Eagles not only upgraded at defensive end yesterday, they potentially added a complement to running back LeSean McCoy by signing restricted free agent Mike Bell to an offer sheet.

The Eagles' second free-agent signing wasn't nearly as big a deal as the first one. That doesn't mean defensive end Chris Clemons' addition isn't as important as the far more celebrated signing of cornerback Asante Samuel the day before. Clemons, as predicted by his agent, Don Henderson, on Friday, showed up at the NovaCare Complex yesterday and signed a five-year contract with the Eagles. Details of the deal were not available. What the Eagles expect from Clemons, on the other hand, was an open book.

The Eagles' flurry of free-agent signings at the end of the lockout garnered deserved attention. The Birds, however, have always been a player in free agency, just in a less compressed time period and with fewer big names.

NEWARK, N.J. - There are good trades and there are bad trades, and the Chris Clemons deal with the Eagles was a good one for the Seahawks. "You win some," Seahawks general manager John Schneider said, "you lose some. " Clemons has notched 38 sacks in four seasons since the Eagles dealt the pass rusher to Seattle, along with a fourth-round draft pick, for defensive end Darryl Tapp. In his previous five seasons in the NFL - two in Philadelphia - he had 20 sacks. Clemons said the increase in sacks and overall production - he does more than just take down quarterbacks - was mostly because of the opportunity that Seahawks coach Pete Carroll gave him. "When I first got to Seattle, Pete gave me an opportunity, not only to play but to start," Clemons said Tuesday at Super Bowl media day. "That wasn't an opportunity I had in Philadelphia.

The first day he pulled on his pads at Eagles training camp in July, an unnerving thought occurred to Chris Clemons. "I realized I needed training," the defensive end said. "I wasn't really ready for that, and it didn't take somebody else to tell me. " Clemons signed with the Eagles on March 1. The year before, when he played for the Oakland Raiders, Clemons was at training camp in the Napa Valley, staying at a sprawling resort hotel. During two-a-days, one practice was in the early morning and the other at night, so his body had time to recharge.

Chris Clemons can't explain how he felt Tuesday when he was carted off the field with dehydration and sent to a hospital. He doesn't remember. He can recall bits and pieces from Tuesday morning's practice, but nothing else. He doesn't know when he first felt he was in trouble. And the ambulance ride from the field to Lehigh Valley Hospital was a blur. "At that point, I couldn't really tell where my body was going," Clemons said. After missing a day and a half of practice, Clemons was back on the field yesterday at defensive end - taking reps with the first team.

WITH THE release of the NFL schedule last night, here's a quick look at how the offseason went for the Eagles' 2014 opponents: Arizona Cardinals 2013: 10-6, missed playoffs by one game. Key signings: T Jared Veldheer (from Raiders), CB Antonio Cromartie (Jets). Key losses: LB Karlos Dansby (to Browns), WR Andre Roberts (Redskins). Projected first-round pick (No. 20): CB Kyle Fuller, Virginia Tech. Quick hit: Larry Fitzgerald's seven TD catches against the Eagles are easily his most against a nondivisional opponent.

One injury after another kept him from fulfilling his potential as a pass-rushing defensive end. The only breaks he ever seemed to get were the kind that prevented him from taking the field. And now he's with a new team. No, this is not Jerome McDougle's story. This tale belongs to Chris Clemons, the free-agent defensive end the Eagles signed to a five-year deal worth $12.6 million this off-season in the hope that he will improve their pass rush. Clemons, who missed most of the preseason because of a right-calf injury, practiced yesterday as the Eagles started preparations for their season opener Sunday against the St. Louis Rams at Lincoln Financial Field.

NFL FREE AGENCY began yesterday with a torrent of deals, making it clear that the teams used the 3-day "legal tampering" period to do more than just discuss parameters of potential contracts. They settled on terms, even if the rules still say you aren't supposed to do that. The Eagles did not get left in the barn, as word of their 3-year pact with former New Orleans safety Malcolm Jenkins surfaced about an hour after the 4 p.m. opening of the market. Nobody was shocked when the Eagles tabbed Jenkins for 3 years and $15.5 million, $8.5 million of that guaranteed, with $5 million as a signing bonus, a source close to the situation said.

ON THE SURFACE, it seems like a marriage made in free-agency heaven. The Eagles, as you may have heard, need a ball-hawking cover safety. And as luck would have it, Jairus Byrd, one of the league's very best ball-hawking cover safeties, is expected to be available on Tuesday when the 2014 free-agent signing period commences. Byrd, 27, wants ridiculous money. He's reportedly looking for a deal that will pay him in excess of $9 million a year. But the Eagles have more than enough salary-cap room - $24.1 million - to accommodate him. Chip Kelly also knows the guy pretty well.

What does $57.14 million buy you? Apparently, an interception returned for a touchdown in the playoffs. The Eagles got a monster return on their investment yesterday when cornerback Asante Samuel, their big free-agent acquisition in March, returned an interception for a touchdown to help beat Minnesota, 23-14, in an NFC wild-card game. It was a huge play from Samuel, and the first touchdown of the afternoon for the Eagles, who won for the fifth time in six games to set up an NFC divisional matchup against the New York Giants, whom the Eagles beat at the Meadowlands four weeks ago. And it was why the Eagles invested so heavily in the Samuel, who will turn 28 tomorrow, with a six-year deal that included $20 million in guaranteed money.

WHEN THE INACTIVES were announced over the press box PA a couple of hours before history was written at the Linc, I thought there was a glaring omission on the Eagles list. They saved the mild surprise for last, L.J. Smith. And if you watched the tight end mishandle the football like a cross between a greased pig and a live grenade in the Redskins debacle, you were hardly shocked. But where was the most obvious inactive? Where was Andy Reid? The coach had dropped the ball week after week in his never-ending, seldom-accomplished goal of "putting players in better position to win. " Ninety-seven years after the World Champion Philadelphia Athletics had a player nicknamed "Home Run" Baker, the Eagles have a coach who should have been nicknamed "No Run Reid.
