The changes on the Eagles defensive line started two weeks ago when Mike Patterson and Cullen Jenkins were released. Which defensive scheme the Eagles will use has not been disclosed, but the cuts were the first steps of a transition. Expect the Eagles to play a 3-4 or a 4-3 under scheme, which is a hybrid of the 3-4. That means the Eagles need a nose tackle, and they'll have a defensive end/outside linebacker who's primarily a pass rusher but also would drop into coverage. The Eagles have only three sure linemen on the roster: Fletcher Cox, Cedric Thornton, and Antonio Dixon.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Fletcher Cox knew what it meant to hear fans calling his name Monday along the fences beyond the Eagles' practice field at Lehigh University. Cox, the defensive tackle whom the Eagles selected with the No. 12 overall pick in April's draft, arrived here with the onus of being the highest draft selection the Eagles have made since taking another defensive tackle - Corey Simon - at No. 6 overall in 2000. "You expect a lot of out of them," Cox said of first-round picks, a sentiment coach Andy Reid had expressed a day earlier.

GOING BY THIS morning's standings, the Eagles do not play a team with a winning record for the next 7 weeks, not until the season finale against the Giants. So there is that. On those self-same standings, the Eagles have five losses, all well-deserved. If the season ended today, the last wild-card team in the NFC would have four losses. Despite how abysmal the Eagles looked against the Saints on Monday night - and abysmal does not begin to describe the wreckage, not really - we are not talking about a monumental stretch.

It was fourth-and-1. The Eagles had the ball on the Packers' 42. Eagles quarterback Michael Vick set up in the shotgun. With 2:00 remaining on the clock in the fourth quarter, Green Bay linebacker Clay Matthews knew what was coming. "Obviously, we knew what was on the line - the game - and we knew we had to stop them," said Matthews. "And with 1 yard to go, we suspected he would be running a quarterback sneak. " Vick did. And Matthews stopped him. No gain.

CULLEN JENKINS knew his $7.5 million cap number for 2012 might be a problem. In the end, Jenkins was more interested in not having to uproot his family again, and in helping the Eagles be more competitive in the free-agent market, than he was in making every penny he might have been able to squeeze out of his situation. Jenkins, 31, was an honest, solid, reliable performer for the 2011 Eagles, and he remained in that mode yesterday, when the team announced he had agreed to restructure his contract, originally announced as a 5-year deal last August.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Mike Patterson, who underwent brain surgery six months ago, will not participate in Eagles training camp and could need a couple of months - possibly more - before he is cleared to practice, the team said. "We're talking about this preseason as a month, then we'll probably reevaluate there," Eagles head trainer Rick Burkholder said. "But it could be a couple of months or more. We don't know. " The Eagles had anticipated Patterson's return at the start of camp, which began Sunday with the arrival of rookies and selected veterans at Lehigh University.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Among the Eagles' offensive playmakers, Jason Avant might be the least flashy. But that doesn't mean he can't put on a show. He did on Sunday, with two highlight-reel catches, including the play of training camp. First, he stretched up high to make a leaping grab over the middle in seven-on-seven drills. But that was an appetizer. In a goal-line drill, Michael Vick faced pressure and lobbed the ball over the top. Avant, covered by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, ran under it and made a full-extension, layout catch that carried him into the end zone.

IT MIGHT HAVE been a triumphant homecoming. Juan Castillo could be careening into Dallas ahead of a phalanx of bloodthirsty defenders bent on realizing Jerry Jones' fears about the Eagles. Instead, Castillo will roll into Big D without a very good D; at least, not a very consistent one. Castillo worshipped the Cowboys as a standout high school and college linebacker in southeast Texas. He considered old Texas Stadium the St. Peter's of football. He dreamed of one day playing or coaching there.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - After a week at Lehigh University, training camp on Saturday looked like football the way fans enjoy it - complete with the players wearing pads and tackling those in different-colored uniforms. "It felt like we are back in camp," defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins said after players put on pads for the first time since the 2011 season concluded. The practice ended with the damper of injuries to wide receiver Riley Cooper, defensive end Jason Babin, and defensive tackle Antonio Dixon, but there were enough plays in both the one-on-one matchups and the team drills to draw an ovation from the 6,486 fans in attendance.
