eagles Malcolm Jenkins is headed to Honolulu as a Pro Bowl alternate, the Eagles safety said Monday night on Twitter. Jenkins had 109 tackles and two interceptions this season, his second with the Eagles. In a Dec. 6 win over the Patriots, he returned an interception 99 yards for a touchdown. Jenkins will join Eagles Fletcher Cox and Darren Sproles in the game Sunday. Guard Jason Peters was a Pro Bowl pick, but he will sit out with a back injury.

SINCE THE DAY he entered the NFL nearly three years ago, Zach Ertz has aimed high. He was a second-round pick with top-of-the-first-round aspirations. Before he even caught his first pro pass, he would look you straight in the eye and tell you without the slightest hesitation that his goal was to be the best tight end in the league. Not one of the best. The best. Numero uno. He's not quite there yet, but after catching a career-high 75 passes this season, he's definitely climbing the charts.

The Jan. 16 NFL playoff doubleheader began in New England with 11 consecutive Tom Brady throws and ended in the Arizona desert with a series of spectacular pass plays. Overall, during that pair of pitch-and-catch victories by the Patriots and Cardinals, the four quarterbacks combined to throw the ball an astonishing 177 times. In the NFL of 2016, those games were hardly aberrations. The just-completed regular season was the pass-happiest in history. Teams averaged a record 35.7 throws a game, which led to league passing records for average completions (22.5)

MOBILE, Ala. - Doug Pederson and the Eagles have several weeks before they have to make a decision on Sam Bradford. They could sign the quarterback to a long-term contract, place their franchise or transition tag on him or let the 28-year old walk in free agency. If they chose to not bring Bradford back - and right now that would come as a surprise - it would be a clear indication that they intend to expend a high draft selection on a quarterback. There is only one prospect at this week's Senior Bowl practices that merits mention as a possible first-round draft pick: Carson Wentz.

STEVE CARIC, the agent who negotiated tight end Zach Ertz's new five-year, $42.5 million contract extension, also happens to represent another Eagle - linebacker Kiko Alonso. Caric said Alonso is "very excited" about the prospect of playing for new defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz. Alonso, the NFL's defensive rookie of the year in 2013, was with the Bills in 2014 when Schwartz was hired as the team's defensive coordinator. But he never got a chance to play a snap for Schwartz, tearing his ACL before the start of training camp that year.

The second-most emphatic endorsement on Monday by Eagles tight end Zach Ertz - after the one he put on the back of an $8 million signing bonus - was the one he bestowed on Sam Bradford, the free-agent quarterback also looking for a contract. "I've played for five quarterbacks now in three years, which seems like a lot, and I want to play with Sam," Ertz said. "Ultimately, that's not my decision. But I think the chemistry that I developed with Sam and Jordan [Matthews] developed with Sam and some of the other guys developed - I think you saw the success firsthand with Donovan [McNabb]

IT IS NOT so much that the Eagles learned something from Sunday's NFL championship games. They were another affirmation of what the Eagles already knew. The absolute necessity of having a franchise-level quarterback is no secret. It is the most important individual position in any team sport. A legendary quarterback like Tom Brady can establish a dynasty. If an all-world talent like Cam Newton puts it all together, a mediocre team like the Carolina Panthers can register the best regular-season record in the league.

Doug Pederson was introduced to the West Coast offense in 1996. Discarded by the expansion Panthers and then the Dolphins for the umpteenth time, the quarterback signed with the Packers early that season. He was only the third-stringer behind Brett Favre and Jim McMahon, but that first year playing for coach Mike Holmgren, in the system that Bill Walsh had mostly created, started a journey that has Pederson bringing the West Coast offense back to the Eagles some 20 years later. The Eagles, of course, have primarily had a West Coast-based system for most of the last two decades.

The Eagles' 17-day coach search took longer than 17 days. It commenced even before Chip Kelly's abrupt dismissal on Dec. 29. The research began late in the season, when owner Jeffrey Lurie first contemplated making a coaching change. While Kelly coached his final weeks with the team, Lurie gathered information about potential replacements. "I've always been one to feel you have to have research started long before you ever make a final decision, because that research is the key," Lurie said.
