Philadelphia police are investigating an allegation that Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor sexually assaulted an exotic dancer Thursday at a South Philadelphia strip club. The Eagles on Friday confirmed that Agholor was being investigated by police. Agholor's attorney, Fortunato N. Perri Jr., said his client "has not engaged in any criminal conduct. " At a news conference Friday afternoon at Police Headquarters, police spokesman Lt. John Stanford declined to identify the person under investigation because no charges had been filed.

The past few weeks - a whirlwind for the Egg Harbor Township softball team - haven't allowed much time for reflection. And maybe that's a good thing. Years from now, the Eagles can look back, likely in disbelief, at their part in one of the most memorable stretches in state softball history. But right now, they're locked in. The ride isn't over. "We don't have enough time to reflect on it," Panthers coach Mary Dunlap said as her team prepared for a Group 4 state championship matchup with North Jersey champion Watchung Hills (27-5)

Cody Parkey and Caleb Sturgis did nothing Thursday. This is an exaggeration, of course, but just a slight one. They're competing for the Eagles' placekicking job, but at the team's final day of mandatory minicamp, their activities seemed more like vacation than they did competition. The Eagles' offense and defense practiced red-zone formations and strategy on one field at the NovaCare Complex. There, Sam Bradford, Chase Daniel and Carson Wentz were completing passes and sending defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz into an expletive-laden lather, and that action occupied everyone's attention.

The final day of offseason workouts is anticipated by NFL players - it's akin to the last day of school before summer vacation. The Eagles' offseason program stretched two weeks longer than normal this year because they have a new head coach, and it included the introduction of Doug Pederson's schemes and philosophies. On Thursday, Pederson sent his players off for six weeks; they will reconvene for training camp in late July. The Eagles had an abbreviated one-hour practice, and players who have spent 10 weeks training packed up for their last encounter with down time until 2017.

The Eagles conclude the spring portion of their offseason practices and workouts Thursday when the mandatory minicamp ends, and everyone departs having agreed it went great. That is the recurring theme around the NovaCare Complex since Doug Pederson replaced Chip Kelly. Things are great and, with the regular season still three months away, there's no sense in dwelling on the fact that greatness is a relative term, particularly in the NFL. It is a time of quiet optimism instead, even if it would also be optimistic to predict the team will win more than half its games this season.

NOW THAT the Eagles have completed the shorts-and-two-hand-touch portion of their schedule and head off for some well-deserved R & R before the start of Camp Pederson in late July, I'd like to take a moment to offer some unsolicited advice to their "passionate" fans: Let it go. By "it," I mean your over-the-top anger toward quarterback Sam Bradford over his late-April trade request and two-week NovaCare boycott after the Eagles moved up to...

Doug Pederson was never in a position to skip offseason workouts or attempt to force a trade or hold out for a new contract, but it's likely he wanted to at one time or another, and, at the least, shared locker rooms with players that were able to take those stances without repercussions. Would he have preferred for Sam Bradford, Fletcher Cox and Darren Sproles to attend all of his first offseason as Eagles coach? Is Riley Cooper looking for a job outside the fast food industry? But Pederson never said as much publicly, never questioned their desires, and never instigated a showdown even though the Eagles had leverage in each circumstance.

HERE ARE half a dozen things we learned about the Eagles during OTAs and minicamps, with the team breaking up Thursday until rookies, quarterbacks and select vets report for training camp at NovaCare July 25: 1 Sam Bradford is the quarterback. He's back from hiatus, he's taken charge, he's engaged, if you watched minicamp and didn't know who the three QBs were, you'd pick No. 7 as the starter. The biggest potential flash point for 2016 does not look ready to explode. Yet. 2 The rookie many observers thought might have the biggest impact this season (assuming QB Carson Wentz mostly sits)

CARSON WENTZ does something amazing just about every day, but he isn't ready to quarterback the Eagles, and he probably isn't going to be ready when the season opens in September. That isn't meant as a rip or as a "hot take. " It's an assessment of where we stand, with the Eagles wrapping up pretraining-camp work Friday. The more we are able to watch Wentz and Sam Bradford running Doug Pederson's offense, the more apparent it becomes that the Eagles didn't just blunder into employing both Bradford and Wentz, along with Chase Daniel, at the QB position for 2016.

TRAINING CAMP is a far-away, shimmering dot on the horizon. The NFL season is as distant in one direction as March Madness is in the other. But right now, the Eagles rookie poised to make the biggest 2016 contribution is . . . Jalen Mills? This is not often the case for someone selected in the seventh round of the draft, but the circumstances are unusual. First, because of the tradeups for quarterback Carson Wentz, who isn't scheduled to start right away, the Birds didn't have a pick between No. 2 overall and No. 79, in the third round, when they took Oregon State guard Isaac Seumalo.
