APPARENTLY, JEFFREY Lurie really does want to do this thing right. That's something we haven't been able to say until now. Not because it wasn't true, but because the signs he's sent since firing Chip Kelly and Ed Marynowitz have been as garbled as the explanations he's offered in defense of them. Until now. On the surface, the only way to interpret the Eagles' hiring of Joe Douglas to head up the team's personnel department is that Lurie was serious when he said he wanted to build a legitimate personnel department, and that, this time, he would hold Howie Roseman accountable for the performance of that department.

WHEN HE fired Chip Kelly and Ed Marynowitz, and brought Howie Roseman back into personnel after a year of forced exile, Jeffrey Lurie implied he just might end up hiring a personnel executive who could outrank Roseman. This is known in the advertising business as the "soft sell," which the online Investopedia says is "designed to avoid angering potential customers and pushing them away. " Roseman, never a fan favorite, clearly suffered image damage when Lurie allowed Kelly to remove him from all personnel decisions in favor of "football guy" Marynowitz.

For Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie, the most delightful development over the last few days wasn't necessarily that his team's ostensible starting quarterback decided to show up to work. Yes, it's nice that Sam Bradford said Monday that he'll report to minicamp next week, but some more promising news for Lurie could have come Wednesday with a click on NFLShop.com. There, he would have found Carson Wentz's black No. 11 Eagles jersey among the site's top-selling pieces of men's apparel, for a cool $99.99.

NOW THAT Sam Bradford has chosen the only realistic option available to him, maybe we can turn our attention to a question that seems to have gotten lost in the kerfuffle that arose in the wake of the Eagles' decision to trade up for No. 2: What in the world do they think this roster is capable of this season? The question warrants consideration, regardless of how you feel about Bradford as 2016 starter or Carson Wentz as the future of the franchise or the price tags paid to secure the services of each.

Up until Monday, it was possible to understand what Sam Bradford was doing after the Eagles moved up in the draft to take Carson Wentz and essentially relegate Bradford to his spot on the menu as yesterday's potatoes. Even if you didn't agree with Bradford when he stopped attending team activities and requested a trade, at least the rationale made some sense. We can debate forever the notion that a guy who worked to come back from three serious surgeries might not have the resolve to compete, but there was no getting around the fact that his chance to be the long-term starter here had been seriously diminished.

When the Eagles prepared for the draft, Auburn defensive back Blake Countess was someone they targeted even though he was not invited to the scouting combine. The team watched film of the 5-foot-10, 184-pound Michigan transfer and considered him "a favorite player of ours," according to football executive Howie Roseman. On the third day of the draft, the Eagles picked Countess in the sixth round. "They try to invite everybody they think is going to get drafted," Countess said of the combine.

When rookie head coach Andy Reid signed veteran backup Doug Pederson in 1999 and immediately installed him as the Eagles starting quarterback, come hell or high draft pick, Reid's mentor, Mike Holmgren, shook his head. "That can wreck your team," Holmgren, the Green Bay coach, said. Jobs aren't supposed to be handed out in March or April. Players in the locker room like to believe in a meritocracy, particularly if the lack of one might cost them a football game. Plus, how can the fans accept a starter - and not call for his highly anticipated replacement - when it doesn't appear the guy had to earn the position?

The Eagles are close to hiring Bears scout Joe Douglas to head their personnel department, NFL sources told the Inquirer on Saturday. The announcement is expected Monday. Douglas, who has been the Bears' director of scouting for the last year, interviewed with the Eagles on Thursday. He previously spent 15 years as a Ravens scout. Douglas will report to Howie Roseman, the Eagles' executive vice president of football operations, and head the scouting department. The Eagles suspended their search for Roseman's second in command in January in the hope they would have a larger pool of candidates to choose from after the draft.

Before Halapoulivaati Vaitai begins playing for the Eagles, the rookie offensive lineman will have a nickname. Howie Roseman did not even attempt saying "hal-lah-poo-lee-VAH-tee," instead calling the team's fifth-round pick "Big V. " It's a nickname that Eagles fans might need to remember. Vaitai, a 6-foot-6, 315-pound tackle from Texas Christian, is an intriguing prospect whom the Eagles will try to develop at tackle. He also was a player the Eagles considered trading up to acquire before he slipped to the No. 164 pick.

NFL history is filled with terrific stories about undrafted players who went on to become superstars and Super Bowl winners. One of them - Kurt Warner - was even a Super Bowl MVP. This, of course, would be a good time for the Eagles to find one of those hidden gems. Having used their first-round selection on a quarterback (Carson Wentz) they hope sits and learns this season and having made just one selection (offensive lineman Isaac Seumalo) in the first four rounds on a player who might actually help them this season, the Eagles desperately need to hit on one of the 16 undrafted free agents they officially revealed Thursday.
