The Eagles quietly have relinquished the rights to holdout offensive tackle Matt Darwin, who has begun working out with interested teams in hopes of returning to the NFL. Darwin, attempting to come back from a pair of knee surgeries last year, told the Daily News last night that the Eagles notified his agent late last week of his release. An official announcement has yet to be made by the Eagles. The 28-year-old, five-year veteran did not wish to reveal the teams that have contacted him, but it was learned that Darwin took a physical and worked out yesterday for the New York Jets.

Randall Cunningham was supposed to have been the tough one, the guy who could sit out weeks and weeks of training camp. The Eagles gave him $4 million over three years, and he missed just a single practice. Keith Jackson, the No. 1 pick, was supposed to be the next Kelly Stouffer, a guy who was ready to sit out an entire year to get what he thought he was worth. The Eagles gave him $2.1 million over four years, and he missed just a few weeks. And all those other players the Eagles had to sign, all the draft picks and veterans, the tough nuts and the easy ones, they all have come in. Save one. Seth Joyner, a man hardly surrounded by holdout speculation just weeks ago, is the only remaining Eagle who has not come to terms with the team.

A year ago, placekicker Rich Karlis had just salvaged his career when he signed on with the Minnesota Vikings for Game 4. This season, after having his best year ever in the NFL, the eight-year veteran finds himself in limbo again after another holdout that backfired. In 1989, Karlis was a no-show Denver Bronco; that move allowed rookie David Treadwell to gain a toehold on the kicking job there. Eventually, Denver rescinded its contract offer to Karlis and Treadwell went on to enjoy a Pro Bowl season.

More than 18 months after his last collegiate game, first-round draft pick Mike Williams of the Detroit Lions, a former Southern Cal wideout, signed a contract and ended a brief holdout. Terms were not disclosed. After a court ruled in February 2004 that running back Maurice Clarett was eligible to play in the NFL, Williams hired an agent and tried to follow him. But an appeals court overturned the earlier ruling and upheld the league's right to bar players who had been out of high school less than three years.

Clifford Robinson said his 11-day holdout in Portland was worth it, even though he rejoined the team without getting the contract extension he wanted. The All-Star forward was an hour late for practice yesterday, saying he was delayed because he was locked out of his house. After the workout, he said he doesn't regret the holdout, but was back with the team for good this season. Robinson agreed to return after meeting with Trail Blazers owner Paul Allen Monday at Allen's home in Seattle.

Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters ended his holdout and reported to the Buffalo Bills. A Bills spokesman said that questions about Peters' physical and roster status would not be answered until after today's home game against Seattle. Peters, who declined to talk to reporters, won't play against the Seahawks. He had off-season surgery to repair a sports hernia and is required to pass a team physical.

Goalie Evgeni Nabokov agreed to a 2-year, $7.15 million contract yesterday with the San Jose Sharks, ending his holdout after five games. Nabokov, the franchise's career victories leader with 71 over his first two NHL seasons, sat out all of training camp and the first 2 weeks of the regular season while seeking a dramatic increase from the $575,000 he earned last season. Though the sides weren't far apart in negotiations, general manager Dean Lombardi conceded that he gave in to Nabokov's desire for a big raise and a relatively short-term contract - violating many of the principles he established while building the Sharks into a small-budget Stanley Cup contender.

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew, the NFL's leading rusher in 2011, ended his holdout on Sunday - and he isn't sorry about taking the 38-day break. "I did something I felt was right, and I'm always going to feel right," the pocket powerhouse said. "And that's why I can come back and not have a negative attitude. I think if you regret things, you're going to come back salty, be a distraction, things like that. " (Our new motto: Never be salty.) After a 40-minute talk with coach Mike Mularkey, MJD answered media questions about his holdout for half an hour.

Unsigned rookie quarterback Heath Shuler is nearing a point where he won't be able to compete for the starting job because of missed practice time, Washington Redskins coach Norv Turner said. Shuler, the third player taken in the first round of the draft, has been a holdout since training camp began July 21. "If he got here in the next day or two, we still have a good week of practice with a lot of learning, a lot of teaching, not being concerned about a game," Turner said. "But then we go a period of 11 days when we play on Monday night, we play on Friday night and we play on Thursday night.

Andre Wadsworth, who ended his preseason holdout on the eve of the Arizona Cardinals' first regular-season game, already is a starter for Game 2. Wadsworth, the third overall pick of the draft, who joined the team after a 44-day holdout that kept him out of training camp, saw limited action as the Cardinals lost to Dallas, 38-10, on Sunday. But the rookie from Florida State will start at left defensive end when the Cardinals travel to Seattle on Sunday, coach Vince Tobin said yesterday.

RUNNING BACKS   1. Arian Foster, Texans All he has to do is stay healthy, and the multitalented tailback will vie for fantasy MVP status. When he's on, there's nobody like him.   2. LeSean McCoy, Eagles Just as deadly as a receiver as he is as a runner, Shady is the most important cog in the Eagles' offense. With Michael Vick vowing to take fewer chances this year to spare his body, McCoy should get even more red-zone looks.   3. Ray Rice, Ravens It's easy to overlook the role he plays in the Ravens' passing attack because Rice is such a strong rusher.

Gus Rubino says he could easily have let time pass him by. It did for many of his colleagues in the TV and stereo repair business. In the '80s and '90s, every town or neighborhood seemed to have one or two men - they were almost always men - who eked out a living fixing TV sets, amplifiers, turntables, and speakers. Some retired. Some could not keep pace with changing technology. Some resigned themselves to a disposable culture in which, as Rubino put it, "people don't even understand the word fix . They think if something isn't working, you throw it away.

FOR LOGAN residents Jose Duprey and Meralys Aviles, it's country-living in the middle of the city. They found a possum on their basement stairs one morning. On another, a squirrel climbed in through a kitchen window and noshed on some bread. The couple's three daughters chase rabbits in their back yard - acres of it. The family lives in one of the eight remaining houses in the "Logan Triangle" - a five-sided, 35-acre piece of land bordered by Roosevelt Boulevard and Wingohocking, Loudon, 11th and 7th streets.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - At some point before the end of training camp, the Eagles will announce that team president Joe Banner and player agent Drew Rosenhaus have agreed on a contract extension for wide receiver DeSean Jackson. Terms will not be disclosed but will immediately be leaked to the media, and life with Jackson will return to normal, or whatever the reasonable facsimile of normal is when you're dealing with a young man who is very talented and very accomplished but not as much of either as he believes.

BETHLEHEM - This much, DeSean Jackson did manage to reveal: that he is not Terrell Owens, that he isn't interested in being a distraction, that he wants a new contract but that he also very much wants it to be from the Philadelphia Eagles. "I always wanted to be an Eagle," he said, which will be the headline but which also was a pretty accurate measure of the undertone. With Jackson, it really does appear to be just business, not insurrection. And now we get to find out if he means it. Because yesterday afternoon, the entourage arrived, a "Wassup?"

BETHLEHEM - Do not expect to see driveway situps or tearful halftime appearances on ESPN, as DeSean Jackson and the Eagles grapple with what to do about Jackson's contract. Yes, Jackson held out for 11 days, finally taking the field in time for yesterday's afternoon walkthrough. Yes, he showed up with Drew Rosenhaus in tow, but from there on, the script was dramatically different from 2005, when Rosenhaus did the talking at Lehigh for a truculent Terrell Owens. Rosenhaus, banished to the practice grandstand yesterday by security and by general manager Howie Roseman, said he had no comment.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - With the Eagles steadfast on not renegotiating his contract and the date that he would lose a year toward free agency set in stone, DeSean Jackson has decided to end his holdout. The Eagles wide receiver will report to training camp at Lehigh University by Monday, a source close to Jackson said Saturday. Jackson has skipped the first 11 days of camp because, it is believed, he wants a contract extension. He has previously stated that he wants a new deal, although he has yet to publicly confirm his desire for the Eagles to tear up his four-year contract and negotiate another.
