Raheem Brock, a Dobbins and Temple product, was one of three defensive ends who worked out yesterday for the Houston Texans. The team also worked out Dewayne White and James Wyche. The Texans are in need of a veteran to replace backup Tim Bulman, who is sidelined with a shoulder injury. Brock was released by the Colts in March after eight seasons. His agent, Andy Simms, did not return messages from the Daily News .

In the reorganized layout of the Eagles locker room at the NovaCare Complex, the offensive linemen are clustered in a back corner of the room like bears in a cave, just the way they want it. For three years under Chip Kelly, the locker assignments were random, with a linebacker here, a running back there, a punter here, and even a quarterback dropped among the brutes like a pearl in a field of rocks. It was interesting in a new-age kind of way, but Kelly's revolution has expired, and Doug Pederson is more of a business-as-usual guy, from the standard fundamentals of the game right down to the positional groupings in the locker room.

Bill O'Brien says he understands how some people feel let down because he left Penn State after only two years as head coach, but he wants them to know that he didn't want to pass up a "once-in-a-lifetime" opportunity presented to him by the Houston Texans. O'Brien was introduced Friday as the Texans' new head coach at a packed news conference inside Reliant Stadium in Houston. And he made sure to reach out to his former players and Penn State fans during his opening remarks. "I want to thank Penn State for the opportunity they gave me to be their head football coach," he said.

Jaelen Strong, who grew up in Mount Airy and went to West Catholic High, was selected Friday in the third round of the NFL draft by the Houston Texans. Strong, the 70th overall pick, started his college career at Pierce College in Los Angeles before starring the last two seasons at Arizona State. Strong is the son of the late John Rankin, a former Drexel basketball standout and Philadelphia police officer. Rankin died when Strong was 9. Strong has a tattoo of an image of the Philadelphia skyline on his right biceps.

With face-painted fans shouting his name, Tony Boselli became the Houston Texans' top pick yesterday - the second time an expansion team began building a franchise around him. "We have a Hall of Famer and we haven't played a game," general manager Charley Casserly said. After five Pro Bowl seasons as an offensive tackle with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Boselli proved to be too attractive for the Texans to pass up, even at a huge cost. Boselli missed most of last season with a shoulder injury that makes him something of a question mark.

Mark Sanchez will remain the New York Jets' starting quarterback despite calls for the team to insert backup Tim Tebow following successive losses. Asked Tuesday on a conference call with reporters if Sanchez will start the Oct. 14 home game against the Indianapolis Colts, coach Rex Ryan responded: "Yes, no question. " Sanchez's 48.4 completion percentage ranks last in the National Football League and is the worst of his four-year professional career. His 208.6 yards passing per game rank him 26th among the league's 32 starting quarterbacks.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Colin Kaepernick threw four touchdown passes in San Francisco's 41-34 win Sunday night over the turnover-prone New England Patriots. Six days after the Patriots' 42-14 win over the Houston Texans, who had the NFL's best record, they were on the other end in another game against one of the league's top teams. Kaepernick, making his fifth start after replacing Alex Smith as San Francisco's starting quarterback, threw scoring passes of 24 yards to Randy Moss, 34 yards to Delanie Walker, and to Michael Crabtree of 27 yards and 38 yards in the fourth quarter to break a 31-all tie. With the win, the 49ers (10-3-1)

New Eagle Stefen Wisniewski isn't worried about winning a starting spot on the offensive line in June. It's by September that he hopes to be in his familiar position. Wieniewski signed a one-year deal in the offseason with the Eagles. He has started all 77 games in a five-year NFL career. A second-round pick of Oakland in 2011, Wisniewski, 27, played his first four seasons with the Raiders and last year with the Jacksonville Jaguars. "I haven't been a backup since I have been in this league, and I don't intend to be one now," Wisniewski said after a workout this week.

WHILE MUCH HAS been made of the money that the Eagles are spending on the quarterback position this year, the fact of the matter is that the $22.35 million in 2016 salary-cap space that will be occupied by Sam Bradford ($12.5M), Chase Daniel ($5M) and Carson Wentz ($4.8M) is just the 11th-highest cap total for the position in the league. Given Bradford's solid play the second half of last season and Daniel's photographic knowledge of Doug Pederson's offense and Wentz's sky's-the-limit potential, you can make a decent argument that $22.35 million is a bargain.

When the Eagles switched from a 4-3 to a 3-4 defense in 2013, only two of eight regulars on the line had any NFL experience playing in an odd-man front. The unit, as coordinator Bill Davis explained it, was going from one end of the spectrum (a wide-nine-based 4-3) to the other (a two-gap-based 3-4). He preached patience, but even Mother Teresa would have been tested by a transition that ultimately fell short of expectations. Three years later, the Eagles are making the trip back to a wide-nine-based 4-3 under new defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - When injury and illness strike, few athletes have the heart to match their talent. A strapping frame, a powerful swing and deft touch around the greens might be the most modest weapons in Jason Day's arsenal. A childhood marred by abuse and poverty combined to make Day, 28, virtually impervious to injury. His iron will draws comparisons to Tiger Woods and Derek Jeter. Two weeks ago the bulging disc in Day's back flared up. No matter: He still won the WGC Match Play, which earned him the No. 1 world ranking as he enters his sixth Masters.

HOUSTON - Unlike the regionals of the NCAA tournament, the Final Four allows for two days of interviews with the coaches and players of the participating schools for the hundreds of national media on site. That could have turned out uncomfortably Friday for Villanova's Ryan Arcidiacono when he was thrown a question asking, "Do you think people have underestimated you as being a small white guy with choirboy looks?" Arcidiacono laughed. "That's the first time I've heard that in my four years," replied the 6-foot-3 senior, who went on to answer in nine more sentences in a rather light-hearted vein.

SOMEDAY, we will be privy to the pictures Howie Roseman has of Miami Dolphins executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum that helped him facilitate one of the great NFL trade robberies of the salary-cap era. For now, it's enough to know that cornerback Byron Maxwell and his XXXL contract are somebody else's problem and the Eagles are picking five spots higher in the first round of next month's draft than they were three days...

The Eagles agreed to sign offensive lineman Brandon Brooks, safety Rodney McLeod, linebacker Nigel Bradham, quarterback Chase Daniel, and cornerback Ron Brooks. The team made the deals for McLeod, Brandon Brooks, and Ron Brooks official. The other signings were confirmed by league sources.

If you were Sam Bradford, and you had other options, would you want to come back to the Eagles? I might. If you were Sam Bradford, and you had other options, would you want to come back to the Eagles? It would depend a lot on the options, which are hard to evaluate right now. If the Houston Texans, who have DeAndre Hopkins, Bill O'Brien and J.J. Watt, would like to pay me the market rate for a starting quarterback, and the Eagles' aren't gonna franchise me, then hasta la vista, Haddonfield, N.J., point me to the correct exit off Houston's Southeast Freeway for River Oaks.

A LITTLE MORE than two hours before the Eagles officially introduced Doug Pederson as their new head coach Tuesday, ESPN reporter Josina Anderson stood in front of the entrance to the NovaCare Complex and delivered a pessimistic report about the likelihood of the Eagles re-signing quarterback Sam Bradford. She quoted an unidentified Eagles source as suggesting that the team just had too many needs to commit the kind of money and salary-cap space it's going to take to bring Bradford back.
