Jamar Chaney Linebacker St. Lucie West Centennial High School Port St. Lucie, Fla. Given that the year before it had gone 9-1 and had some of the better players from that squad back, it was understandable that the St. Lucie West Centennial High School football team had high expectations as the 2004 season approached. Jamar Chaney remembers, "We had a chance of winning the state championship that year. " But that was before the east coast of Florida was hit by two devastating hurricanes within weeks of one another.

Want to know how Jamar Chaney's offseason is going and whether the second-year Eagle has what it takes to supplant Stewart Bradley as next season's starting middle linebacker? Just patrol the near-vacant football fields in South Philadelphia and keep an eye out for the 6-foot, 242-pounder, running through his linebacker drills in solitude. It's more than Eagles coach Andy Reid can do. Several blocks away, at a nearly deserted NovaCare Complex, Reid is preparing for the NFL draft at the end of this month.

In his career, Chip Kelly already has experienced everything that comes along with coaching a football team, with one notable exception. There aren't many cutdown days in college. "We have none," Kelly said. That part of the NFL game is new to him. These aren't recruits who stay on scholarship even if they can't stay on the field. These are professionals who sometimes have to be told that their livelihood won't be continuing here. "There's only a certain number of guys who are going to make it. You start with 90 and end up with 53. How that comes about is difficult," Kelly said.

STRONGSIDE linebacker Jamar Chaney confirmed that he has buried the hatchet with Steelers offensive lineman Ramon Foster, who dived into the back of Chaney's legs well after the whistle during last Thursday's game. Foster was not penalized. "I don't think he did it intentionally," Chaney said today. "It looked like it on film. It is what it is. It won't help me to be mad about it . . . We don't play the Steelers any more unless we make it to the Super Bowl and they make it, too. " Chaney said he and Foster spoke via direct message on Twitter.

Kurt Coleman knows the drill for the first off-season of his NFL career. "I have to get bigger, faster, stronger, and learn to understand the game a little more," Coleman said. The Eagles' rookie safety might have been speaking for all of the team's young players. They gained some experience this season, but their development could be the key to the team's future. "We were able to play young players who were able to get experience," Eagles coach Andy Reid said. "Some of those young guys are going to be leaders on this team.

JACKSONVILLE - In a league where standout safeties are scarce, you just don't get a guy of Kenny Phillips' stature on a 1-year deal with nothing guaranteed. So from the moment the Eagles announced the signing of the former Giants first-round draft pick, there was ample reason for skepticism. He was available because the Giants decided Phillips was never going to be healthy again, and yesterday the Eagles seemed to adopt the same view, making Phillips the headline name in a group of 12 players released as the Birds whittled to 76. If Phillips' fate wasn't sealed going into Saturday's preseason game at Jacksonville, it was when he warmed up and then decided his balky quad muscle wouldn't allow him to play.

ON MOST MONDAYS during the Eagles season, we turn High & Inside over to the fans to let them praise or blast - lately it has been more of the latter - their beloved Birds. There was no game yesterday. Instead of winning or losing, the players got to enjoy a rare weekend off. Thanks to Twitter and other sources, we are able to share what some of them did: *  Michael Vick went shopping: "Toy Store with the kids," he tweeted. "Glad daddy make good money. Early xmas. " * Brian Rolle already has his mind on Sunday's game in Miami.

Linebacker wasn't always an annual question mark. In 1982 the Eagles sent two homegrown 'backers to the Pro Bowl: Frank LeMaster, a 1974 fourth-rounder, and Jerry Robinson, a first-round pick in 1979, the last linebacker the team has taken in the NFL's opening round. It was the only Pro Bowl appearance for either, and the next year the team began a drought at linebacker that would seem familiar to fans today. After '82 the Eagles went nine years without a linebacker in the NFL's all-star game, but they eventually broke the streak with Seth Joyner, an eighth-round pick in 1986 who would grow into one of the central pieces of Buddy Ryan's defenses.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - DeSean Jackson injured his left ankle during Friday afternoon's practice after he was sandwiched between two safeties during seven-on-seven drills. Jackson slowly came to his feet and walked to the trainer's tent. His left ankle was wrapped and he returned to the team, although he did not play any more. When Jackson was asked how he felt while walking to his car after practice, he gave a thumbs-up. Fifteen players missed practice because of injury or illness, but most were minor pulls and spasms.

The Eagles lost their second player to a season-ending injury in three days when linebacker Jason Phillips tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during Monday's practice. It was the same injury that Jeremy Maclin suffered two days earlier. The Eagles made an immediate roster move, placing Phillips on injured reserve and signing undrafted rookie linebacker Travis Long. Phillips, 27, signed with the Eagles during the offseason to bolster the special teams. He was hurt during special-teams drills.

LANCASTER - LeSean McCoy is sitting out of the Eagles' quarterback debate, declining to weigh in on who should win the starting quarterback spot and when a starter should be named. He's focusing instead on his touches. "That's why they pay Chip Kelly the big bucks, to pick the quarterback," McCoy said. "Whoever he picks, I'm fine with. As long as I get my carries, I don't care who they pick. " McCoy spoke before his second annual charity softball game.

The Eagles sent running back Dion Lewis to the Cleveland Browns on Thursday for linebacker Emmanuel Acho. Though they had hoped to get a late draft pick for Lewis, the Eagles acquired a young linebacker for a player who probably would have been released. With LeSean McCoy, Bryce Brown, and a healthy Chris Polk at running back, coach Chip Kelly deemed Lewis expendable. Acho, a 2012 sixth-round draft pick out of Texas, spent last season on injured reserve with a knee injury. He suffered a meniscus (cartilage)

The news of Mike Kafka's signing a futures contract with the New England Patriots on Thursday makes this a good time to revisit the Eagles' 2010 draft class - and specifically the fourth round. That's when Kafka went. He was one of four fourth-round picks for the Eagles. A fourth-round pick in the NFL has value - but not significant value. There's rougly a 10 percent chance of finding a starter in that round. Of course, based on those odds, the Eagles had a realistic statistical chance of finding a starter in that round.

QUARTERBACK Eagles: In his first start against the Redskins 5 weeks ago, Nick Foles struggled against the blitz, completing just 8 of 18 passes and throwing two interceptions when they sent five or more rushers. Since then, he has done a good job of moving and sliding in the pocket and has thrown just one pick. Redskins: Robert Griffin III is nursing a knee injury that kept him out of last week's game.

TAMPA - Two significant defensive lineup changes for the Eagles Sunday, neither of them having anything to do with the wide-nine, but both seemingly for the better: Rookie linebacker Mychal Kendricks, the strongside starter all year, went to the weakside. Jamar Chaney, who hadn't started since the Pittsburgh game Oct. 7, took over the strongside spot. Then, with Kurt Coleman left home because of a sternum bruise, special-teams ace Colt Anderson got his first safety start since 2010.
