JUST AS FANS started to get good and worked up about the Eagles' inactivity in the early hours of free agency, the team dropped a load of signings on the reeling Twitterverse. Five new Eagles joined the roster, though they weren't the splashy, top-of-the-market guys some fans always seem to want, in the face of solid evidence that trying to build a winner that way doesn't work. The signings reflected what general manager Howie Roseman and new coach Chip Kelly said in the weeks leading up to the opening of the market: The Eagles need players, as they transition from the Andy Reid era to new systems.

Frank Olivo, the Santa Claus who got pelted with snowballs at the Eagles game that winter day in 1968, died Thursday, April 30, at Kindred Hospital Philadelphia-Havertown. Mr. Olivo, 66, of Glenolden, had battled heart disease, diabetes, and other ailments for 25 years, and had been seriously ill since mid-January.

1 Steve Van Buren. The best ever. How do you judge? How do you cross eras and compare? Just what is universal, what is the tipping point, what is the criteria for such an honor as being named the best ever for a franchise that has existed for more than seven decades? Championships. When it comes down to it, the game of football is about winning championships, and no one was more instrumental in bringing not one, but two championships to the city of Philadelphia than Steve Van Buren.

The team that could not score from the 1-yard line two times with the 49ers game on the line in September wants all two-point conversions to be from that distance. And it just so happens that the Eagles could have a roster this year that is better equipped to make those plays. NFL owners will consider three proposals to change the extra point this week at the league meetings in San Francisco. One is from the Eagles, who are proposing to move extra points from the 2-yard line to the 15-yard line, two-point conversions from the 2-yard line to the 1, and for defenses to be allowed to return a turnover for two points on the play.

PRETTY WOMEN in high-heeled, rhinestone-trimmed sneakers girl-tossing a pink football to each other. That's what I halfway expected to see the night I went to watch Philly's lingerie football team do some off-season conditioning. Boy, did I have it wrong. If they started out in makeup, they'd sweated it off by the time I got there. In fact, there was nothing the least bit glamorous about the Philadelphia Passion players I saw at 7 Deuce Sports, in Medford, N.J., last week. The women, whose team is part of the recently renamed Legends Football League , were hitting it hard, to the point that a few were hobbling.

FOR MORE than a few of the 75 players on the Eagles' roster, tonight's game at the Jets will be the last time they will pull on a football jersey, the end of something they've devoted their lives to since they were in elementary school. That is a serious and solemn thing, even as we roll our eyes at the idea of having to watch a preseason game minus starters, to be contested at least partly among men who will never play a down in the NFL. The cutdown to the regular-season roster limit of 53 by 4 p.m. Saturday looms.

The Eagles' plan for handling the Riley Cooper situation became clear Tuesday. There is no plan. There never was. The team acted quickly to fine Cooper for his videotaped racist threat, then ducked low and hoped it would all blow over. The assumption that Cooper went to some kind of sensitivity training or counseling program appears incorrect. The Eagles excused him from team activities on Friday so he could "seek assistance. " Coach Chip Kelly said there was no timetable for Cooper's return.

DEMOCRATIC MAYORAL nominee Jim Kenney got a surprise phone call yesterday from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton . He was just as surprised as I was to hear the following: "I just wanted to call and congratulate you, Jim, on your nomination to be Philadelphia's next mayor. The issues of diversity and economic inclusion are important for all of our working families. We want to tackle these issues throughout our country. Again, congratulations, and good luck!"   Speak of hills Production began recently for Philly actor David Morse 's new original drama series, "Outsiders," which will launch on the Comcast Network early next year.

WHENEVER YOU find yourself searching for somebody to blame, a good piece of advice is to take a long, hard look in the mirror and hope somebody is standing behind you. If not, look somewhere else. At some point, you will realize that it is probably your parents' fault, and you can get on with your life. Take, for instance, the current state of our sports teams here in the city of Philadelphia. I don't want to say it's the worst it's ever been, but pretty soon Cleveland will be walking around with its chest puffed out. The Phillies are at least 3 years away from being something other than a travesty; the Sixers are still climbing out of the wreckage of the last regime; and the Flyers are coming off a season in which they suffered 11 shootout losses, one of them to "Frozen on Ice. " It's like old times again here in the City of Why Do We Bother, and there is no shortage of culprits to blame.

The NFL will consider three proposals for changing the extra point at the spring meetings next week. One is from the Eagles. The Eagles proposed snapping from the 15-yard line for an extra point but moving the ball to the 1-yard line for a two-point conversion. They also want the two-point conversion to be a scoring opportunity for the defense, which could return it for two points on a turnover. The New England Patriots proposed the same extra point but added the two-point conversion from the 2-yard line.

THE EAGLES announced that they have signed the last of their draft picks. Linebacker Jordan Hicks, a third-rounder from Texas, agreed to terms with the team on a four-year contract. Now, all six draft choices are under contract. The Eagles are in the midst of their offseason program. According to the collective bargaining agreement, they are in Phase 2, during which players may work out on the field and participate in individual instruction and drills.

EAGLES personnel vice president Ed Marynowitz continued to build his scouting team yesterday, when the team announced that former Bears exeutive Dwayne Joseph will be director of pro personnel, and that former Eagles pro scout Louis Clark will hold the title of senior director of pro personnel. A team source clarifed that "senior" is a reflection of Clark's age (50) and experience, and does not mean he will rank ahead of Joseph, 42, who was Chicago's associate director of pro personnel.

The Eagles named Dwayne Joseph director of pro scouting and promoted Louis Clark to senior director of pro personnel Wednesday, two big changes to the organization's revamped scouting staff under Ed Marynowitz. Although the titles are different, the two share similar responsibilities and both report directly to Marynowitz, the vice president of player personnel. Joseph comes from the Chicago Bears and replaces Rick Mueller, who was not retained after the draft. Clark had been a pro scout with the team since 2013.

Everyone had better be careful now. This is the reality of an NFL leadership group that just suspended the league's most famous and accomplished star for favoring a softer football and failing to come clean about his preference. This is the consequence of Roger Goodell's Inspector Javert act not just against Tom Brady but Robert Kraft, Bill Belichick, and the entire New England Patriots organization: a first-round draft pick, a fourth-round draft pick, a $1 million fine, the loss of Brady for four games next season.

IT SEEMS there is a method to Chip Kelly's madness. Eagles fans gave Kelly holy hell when he signed Tim Tebow last month. Why add another subpar quarterback when you've already got Mark Sanchez, Matt Barkley and G.J. Kinne. Because of the "Tebow Rule," that's why. Actually, no such rule exists. Yet. But that's what it will likely be known as if a proposal by the Eagles concerning the two-point conversion is accepted. Next week, the NFL owners will meet and mull over three proposals for changing the way extra points and conversions are handled.
