TOM BARWIN wasn't all that surprised when his son Connor, a freshman football player at Cincinnati, called home in January 2006 to impart the news that he was joining the Bearcats basketball team. For one thing, Connor had grown up more of a youth basketball star than a football player, working tirelessly on a court built in the Barwin backyard for him and his three older brothers. For another, this was Connor responding to a need - Cincinnati had fired basketball coach Bob Huggins, players had left the team, the Bearcats needed help.

I HAVE an admission to make; one I never thought I'd utter as a 47-year-old man. Please bear in mind that this is not easy for me, because I used to scoff at others for doing the very thing I'm going to share with you. But as difficult as this might be, I need to tell the truth about what I've become, and I need to do it before I change my mind. Before I go there, however, I need to make one thing clear. None of this is my fault. It's all because of Chip Kelly. Had he not cut DeSean Jackson last year, the bitterness would have never taken root.

This article has been corrected. An earlier version said the Eagles' seven new players missed an average of 12 games last season. Chip Kelly continues to hand out money to players with extensive injury histories. The Eagles agreed to terms Monday on a one-year contract with wide receiver Miles Austin and extended and restructured linebacker DeMeco Ryans' contract through 2016. The oft-injured Austin has to pass a physical Tuesday before he can sign a deal that is worth $2.3 million and with $700,000 in incentives, an NFL source said.

LIKE THE NFL'S endangered extra point, physicals given to players to make signings and trades official tend to be almost automatic. That might not be the case when Eagles doctors give wideout Miles Austin the once-over, though. Austin, who turns 31 in June, last played a full NFL season in 2012 and has a chronic hamstring problem. The NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported yesterday that the Birds have signed Austin to a 1-year deal worth $2.3 million, with another $700,000 possible in incentives.

THE EAGLES gained some cap room yesterday by restructuring and extending inside linebacker DeMeco Ryans' contract through 2016, a move that indicates the return of the team's defensive leader from Achilles' surgery is going well. They also touched off a wave of speculation over the future of the other 2014 starting inside linebacker, Mychal Kendricks. A source close to the situation said Ryans, who was entering the final year of his original deal, will get up to $10.5 million over the next two seasons, with $6.25 million guaranteed.

THE MYSTERY of who exactly decided it was a swell idea to draft Marcus Smith last spring remains unsolved. Chip Kelly pleaded innocent last week. Insisted he didn't have final say in the draft and thinks he was in Munich or Cancun or Phil Knight's living room when Roger Goodell announced, "With the 26th pick in the 2014 draft, the Eagles select Louisville linebacker . . . " Common sense says that then-general manager Howie Roseman never would have reached for Smith unless his head coach had given the move his blessing.

ESCAPE THE confusing dissonance that now envelops the Eagles and recognize this reality: Any evaluation of the 2015 version cannot be attempted until at least the end of training camp. The team has too many unknowns . . . and too few players. So much noise surrounds the franchise. Did Jeffrey Lurie or Chip Kelly demote Howie Roseman? Is it stable? Racist? This unharmonious symphony is the work of one man, Chip Kelly, who apparently loves blue-chip players who are better known for their injuries than for their accomplishments.

PHOENIX - Chip Kelly has told us on more than one occasion that you judge quarterbacks by their win-loss record. Told us that again yesterday morning when he was answering yet another question about - who else? - Marcus Mariota, who won 36 of 41 starts and turned water into wine at the University of Oregon. OK, maybe I made up the water-into-wine part. If that's true, if it's all about a quarterback's wins and losses, how do you explain the Eagles trading Nick Foles, who had won 14 of 18 starts the last two seasons, for Sam Bradford, who had an 18-30-1 record in five injury-plagued seasons with the Rams?

PHOENIX - So the last piece of Louis Vuitton luggage has been carefully trundled out of the Frank Lloyd Wright-influenced Arizona Biltmore hotel lobby into the last chauffeured Bentley; the 2015 NFL meetings are over, and for Eagles fans, the highlight was that both Jeffrey Lurie and Chip Kelly spoke. What did we learn? Nothing earth-shattering. Both the team chairman's Tuesday session and the coach's hourlong appearance at the NFC coaches' breakfast yesterday yielded valuable nuggets of new information, they filled in some blanks and buttressed some notions.

PHOENIX - With the Eagles' big free-agent splashes likely behind them, they probably will need to rely on internal options and the draft to replace departed veterans at safety, wide receiver, and right guard. "You're trying to see what the market is," Eagles coach Chip Kelly said Wednesday at the NFL meeting about remaining free agents. "There are conversations going on, but I couldn't say one way or the other. " At right guard, the Eagles will look to veteran Allen Barbre to replace Todd Herremans.
