From Eagletarian.com, the Daily News' Eagles blog: It figured Andy Reid would take some of his assistants with him to Kansas City - it was no shock when Eagles quarterbacks coach Doug Pederson became the Chiefs' offensive coordinator Friday - but the staff list released by the Chiefs did contain some surprises. Reid's son Britt, a graduate assistant at Temple, is going to the Chiefs as a quality control coach. Britt is most known by Eagles fans for being arrested, the same day in 2007 as his older brother Garrett, after separate traffic incidents that involved drug charges.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - If you were at Eagles training camp and happened to be driving up the road in between the team's practice fields and Lehigh University's campus Monday afternoon, you many have spotted a man dressed in black with a bushy mustache climbing the hill. And you may have asked yourself, "Was that Andy Reid?" News flash: It was. The familiar sight of Reid walking off the fields after practice and into a chauffeured SUV was replaced by one of the Eagles coach bypassing the black vehicle and walking the two-mile stretch in between the fields and the dorms where the Eagles are staying.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Jeremy Maclin hauled in a 20-yard strike from Michael Vick as he was running full speed toward the sideline. His momentum carried him a few yards out of bounds, quickly parting a sea of onlookers sidestepping out of harm's way. One of those spectators along the sideline was Jeffrey Lurie, the Eagles owner who was no less than an hour removed from sharing words about Andy Reid and his deceased son, Garrett, at midfield with players...

The Eagles are expected to lose top wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and are keeping quarterback Mark Sanchez, two moves that could signal major changes to Chip Kelly's offense. A deal is in place for Maclin to sign with the Kansas City Chiefs, a league source confirmed. The signing would reunite Maclin with former Eagles coach Andy Reid, who drafted the wide receiver in Philadelphia. The Chiefs still need to clear salary-cap space, according to ESPN, which first reported the news. Sanchez is returning to the Eagles on a two-year contract that is worth $9 million and possibly $16 million if he hits certain incentives, a league source confirmed.

Freddie Mitchell has been watching. He had plenty of time for it, much more than he would have liked. Around the NFL, other wide receivers taken in his draft class have been playing more, catching passes and making big plays. Meanwhile, the Eagles' first-round pick had been learning his team's offense, waiting and watching. "Oh, definitely," Mitchell said. "I see a lot of the rookie receivers, and they've been thrown right into the action. That team had to take them out of the learning curve.

Terrell Owens downplayed a report yesterday that he falls asleep in team meetings. "As long as I don't sleep on Sunday," the Dallas Cowboys receiver said as he left the locker room at the team's practice facility. As is customary on Fridays, he did not conduct interviews. The receiver said in yesterday's editions of the Dallas Morning News that he informed the Cowboys about a sleeping problem before signing with them. "It's nothing new for me to fall asleep in a meeting," he said.

The NFL's free-agency season is under way, but little is likely to happen before Monday. Some visits will take place over the weekend, but most of the moving and shaking will happen next week. While their quarterback and line positions have holes, the Eagles are virtually devoid of proven talent at wide receiver. In the next few days, they are expected to entertain Washington Redskins receiver Leslie Shepherd and Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Charles Johnson (when Johnson returns from his Hawaii vacation with friend Antonio Freeman, Green Bay's Pro Bowl receiver)

A few times yesterday at the NovaCare Complex, David Culley, the Eagles' wide-receivers coach, didn't see precisely what he wanted. Sometimes a cut wasn't crisp enough. Sometimes a player's eyes weren't turned back on the ball. Sometimes one of the men in Culley's charge - a youthful stable of aspiring Eagles receivers - just didn't sell the pattern. Culley would step forward to speak. But sometimes, the name of the man beneath the helmet would elude him. Such is life at the Eagles' minicamp for rookies and selected veterans: make a name for yourself or pack your bags.

When the Eagles drafted 6-foot-3 wide receiver Riley Cooper in 2010, and again this past April when they picked the similarly-sized Marvin McNutt, the immediate thought was the same: big end-zone target. Only it hasn't worked out that way for Cooper - the Eagles threw to him just four times in the red zone last year, all in their win over the New York Giants - and just because McNutt stands equally tall, it doesn't necessarily mean the Eagles brought him in to catch jump balls in the end zone.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - It was minutes after 2 p.m. on Wednesday, and DeSean Jackson checked into the Eagles' dorms at Lehigh University. The mandatory team meeting did not start for nearly five more hours, yet Jackson was there. He strutted across the arid lawn, smiling and remarking how nice a day it seemed. If there is any image that encapsulates the difference between the way the Eagles started the 2011 season and the way the Eagles started the 2012 season, it might be this: Jackson, on time and happy.

KANSAS CITY - Andy Reid ambles across the practice fields, a red-jacketed Santa figure with a sandy, whitening mustache, ruddy and jolly, a mischievous twinkle in his clear blue eyes. On this cloudless afternoon, icicles dangle from the speed-limit signs on nearby Interstate 70. The wind chill makes it feel like it's 15 degrees, but anywhere south of 40 degrees Reid's 55-year-old arthritic knee hurt like hell, anyway. "Ah," he said, dismissively. "It's cold. " He shrugged.

Andy Reid is the Chiefs' new chief. The former Eagles coach came to an agreement with Kansas City to become its next head coach. The Chiefs tweeted a photo of Reid and Chiefs owner Clark Hunt signing the contract on Friday night. "Andy Reid and Clark Hunt make it official," the tweet said. "Reid becomes the Head Coach of the Chiefs. " Reid and his wife, Tammy, boarded a private plane with Hunt and were flown to Kansas City Friday afternoon. When the Reids touched down at Kansas City airport, camera crews were already waiting for the new coach, according to local reports.

IT ISN'T JUST Andy Reid who presumably will have to pack up his office next week at NovaCare. The Eagles' media guide lists 14 assistants, from Bobby April to Mike Zordich, who serve on Reid's staff; there are a few others in entry-level spots who don't rate mention, and a building full of trainers, equipment managers, strength coaches, secretaries and the like who could be affected by the ripples from what everyone expects to be the first Eagles head-coaching...

IS IT fair to write the epitaph before the funeral? Andy Reid on Sunday likely coached his last game at the helm of the Eagles in a stadium that has never known another head coach. The Eagles lost, 27-20. Even with a win in a week at the Giants, Reid will finish no better than 5-11, equaling his worst season - his first. Combine this with the .500 debacle of 2011, which owner Jeffrey Lurie declared insufficient grounds for continued employment. So, presumably, this was Reid's last appearance on the west sideline, where he was received with indifference before the game and left without incident afterward.

THE QUESTION was obvious, and it felt a little funny not knowing the answer after four seasons, but here it was: What is DeSean Jackson especially good at, other than being fast? Here is what Marty Mornhinweg came up with: "He'll go track the ball," the Eagles' offensive coordinator said. "As you know, he's great down the field, across the field, inside, breaking route. He's very, very good at those types of things. He also can get in and out of breaks very, very quickly . . . "He's really sharp, he's got natural playing ability and that's what enabled him to play at such a high level so early in his rookie season.

EVERYBODY WANTS to know who makes the 53-man roster for the Sept. 9 Eagles season opener. Fact is, even with the Birds having flown from Lehigh Tuesday, to resume preseason work at NovaCare Thursday, the jury remains way, way out on roster spots. The Eagles have played one of their four preseason games. Everybody - yes, even safety Jaiquawn Jarrett, child of fan and media scorn after his inept performance in the preseason opener - still has a chance at redemption. The Eagles don't cut down from 90 to 75 players until Aug. 27, the day after the Flight Night practice at Lincoln Financial Field, and they don't have to get to 53 until Aug. 31, the day after the preseason finale.
