Kiko Alonso thought he was in proper shape. The Eagles' new inside linebacker also thought he remembered what a Chip Kelly practice was like from his time at Oregon. But two years away from Kelly with the Buffalo Bills was long enough that Alonso still needed to adjust to the Eagles' practices this week during organized team activities. "I knew what to expect, but I definitely thought I'd be more in shape, but I was wrong," Alonso said. "I remember when I was in Buffalo, I was like I can't imagine going against the Eagles and that pace.

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.

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.

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.

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. A South Philadelphia native, Mr. Olivo, known as "Frankie," was a barber, worked for years in the casino industry in Atlantic City, sold cars, and was in the mortgage business.

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.

The Eagles will work out offensive lineman Jared Wheeler on Monday, according to a league source. He will sign if he passes his physical, according to agent Brett Tessler. Wheeler, 24, is 6-foot-5 and 319 pounds and played at the University of Miami. He was waived by the Seattle Seahawks after the draft in May. Wheeler spent last summer with the Carolina Panthers and Buffalo Bills. He was with the Bills during the preseason, but did not make the final roster cut. Wheeler started six games at Miami in 2013 - one at left guard, two at center, and three at right guard.

Philly native Audrey Landers has a little something up her sleeve as she prepares for a return to her hometown for Yachtstock on the banks of the Delaware River this coming weekend. Yachtstock River Jam, in its 17th year, is one of the more popular summer concert series in the five-county region and benefits children's charities. Landers told me during a recent phone interview that she may even do a little number just for fun - something from "Dallas," perhaps. But it's Landers' son, Daniel Landers , who's in the spotlight this go 'round.

In East Falls, atop a hill that crests after a tenth-of-a-mile slope of dirt-pocked grass and fissured white pavement blotched with black tar, rests the Abbotsford Homes housing project. Rasheed Bailey lived at Abbotsford until he was 18, as did his best friend and classmate at Roxborough High School, Rashawn Anderson. But it wasn't until someone shot and killed Anderson outside his house on the night of Feb. 7, 2011, that Bailey recognized his own deep desire to leave Abbotsford.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. – Malcolm Jenkins just started a new period of his life when he hosted his annual football camp last June. One year later, Jenkins led his camp at Piscataway High School emboldened by a season in which he was one of the most important players on the Eagles' defense and one of the leaders in the locker room. "I remember last year, I wanted to set a good impression in everything," Jenkins said Friday on the first day of a two-day free camp for nearly 400 children.

The Eagles reported for the offseason program on April 20. That was before the Marcus Mariota fantasies faded, before LeSean McCoy finished airing his grievances, and before Chip Kelly released Evan Mathis. Their final practice of the spring came Thursday. Ninety players trained in a drizzle, sat through a final team meeting, and went their separate ways for summer vacation. They won't return for another six weeks, with the first training camp practice on Aug. 2. "Our biggest strength is that we have six weeks before training camp, and our biggest weakness is that we have six weeks before training camp," Kelly said.

Josh Huff caught the pass in stride 20 yards downfield on a crossing route. With the ball in his hands, he burst ahead looking for a defender to plow over. But each defensive back peeled off and Huff jogged back to the sideline unable to unleash his fury. In minicamp, practices are no more than touch football and physical wide receivers such as Huff don't get opportunities to display their wares. But the Eagles don't have to worry about Huff with the ball in his hands. It's making sure it gets there and stays.

For a moment, assume the worst for Sam Bradford. Picture him at Lambeau Field on Aug. 29, dropping back to pass against the Packers during the Eagles' third preseason game. The third exhibition game is a team's most important preseason game. It's the dress rehearsal for the regular season. It's Bradford's best chance, maybe his only chance before the final score starts to matter, to answer the questions about whether, after tearing his left anterior cruciate ligament twice in a 10-month span, he can make Chip Kelly's offense purr like a Ferrari 458 over 16 games.

CHIP KELLY definitely got reporters' attention yesterday when the Eagles' coach talked about giving Vinny Curry some reps at outside linebacker. Here, finally, was a new development in what has become an old and frustrating story, especially for Curry, a pass rusher of great potential who suddenly is closing in on his 27th birthday June 30, without ever having started an NFL game. Curry notched nine sacks and forced four fumbles last season in just 371 defensive snaps, about a third of the plays the defense totaled.

The nail that sticks up gets hammered down. - Japanese proverb For the second straight day, Chip Kelly was asked on Wednesday to clarify the perplexing question of why he chose to dismiss an accomplished starter who had two years remaining on his contract. And for the second straight day, Kelly said a lot without saying very much, content to allow one explanation to chase the other's tail like a dog spinning in a tight circle while going nowhere. Kelly is a pretty good football coach, but he's untouchable in debate class.

CHIP KELLY made the annual, ceremonial declaration common to all coaches, that no hard and fast conclusions should emerge from the Eagles' spring work. Yesterday's bit of cautionary Kelly boilerplate might be more accurate than usual this year, given the long list of new starters we haven't seen in pads yet, and the fact that the presumed No. 1 quarterback, Sam Bradford, has yet to throw in an 11-on-11 session. "It's a lot of new people coming into the fold right now, but chemistry is going to come," cornerback Byron Maxwell said.

CHIP KELLY'S Church of Sports Scientology came into Brent Celek's life just in the nick of time. The tight end was 28 going on 60 when Kelly replaced Andy Reid as the Eagles' head coach two years ago. Six seasons of playing pro football the only way he knows how - pedal to the metal, with no regard for his physical well-being - had taken its toll on his body. "I probably wouldn't be here if not for the type of stuff we do now," he said. "I was starting to break down a little bit and I needed to take care of my body a little bit better.
