The Eagles will release veteran offensive lineman Todd Herremans, according to league sources. Herremans had been one of the team's two longest-tenured players after spending the first 10 years of his career in Philadelphia. The move gives the Eagles more salary-cap space, but it also leaves them with a vacancy at right guard. The team did not make any announcement Thursday. Herremans, 32, started 124 of his 127 games in an Eagles uniform. He missed 16 games due to injury during the last two seasons.

MOBILE, Ala. - Bill Davis, the defensive coordinator who kept trying to single-cover star receivers with Bradley Fletcher as the Eagles slipped from the playoff picture, remains secure in his post. But the late meltdown of the Birds' secondary has claimed some victims. Last week, former Pro Bowl corner Todd Lyght, who'd assisted Eagles defensive backs coach John Lovett the past two seasons, left to coach Vanderbilt's corners. Yesterday the Eagles announced that Lovett is now a pro scout.

EAGLES running back LeSean McCoy, who suffered an apparently minor knee injury in the season finale against the Giants, will not participate in the Jan. 25 Pro Bowl in Arizona, an NFL source confirmed. Also, wideout Jeremy Maclin and long snapper Jon Dorenbos were added. Maclin, a third alternate, replaces Denver's Demaryius Thomas. Dorenbos was added as a "need" player by coach Jason Garrett. Eagles named earlier were guard Evan Mathis, tackle Jason Peters, linebacker Connor Barwin, center Jason Kelce and returner Darren Sproles.

Eagles guard Evan Mathis, originally a second alternate, was named to the Pro Bowl yesterday when Philly's own Jahri Evans, of the Saints, turned down his invitation, citing injury. Mathis will play in the game for the second year in a row. He joins linebacker Connor Barwin, center Jason Kelce, returner Darren Sproles, running back LeSean McCoy and left tackle Jason Peters . . .

The Eagles had four players named to the all-pro second team by the Associated Press: Linebacker Connor Barwin, defensive lineman Fletcher Cox, tackle Jason Peters, and returner Darren Sproles. Barwin led the NFC with 141/2 sacks and fell two votes shy of first-team all-pro linebacker Elvis Dumervil of the Baltimore Ravens. Dumervil finished the season with 83 tackles, 141/2 sacks, 21 hurries, and two forced fumbles. Cox did not make the Pro Bowl, which surprised Eagles coach Chip Kelly.

IT DIDN'T get much notice, given that it happened in the course of a soul-crushing defeat, but the Eagles went three-for-three in the red zone last Sunday night against Dallas. The Birds have struggled with the short field all season, especially in the running game, but handing the ball to Chris Polk produced touchdowns of 1 and 5 yards. Darren Sproles also added a 1-yard run. LeSean McCoy? Just before the Sproles TD, McCoy got the ball on a run to the left from the Dallas 4, and he seemed about to score, but safety Barry Church did an excellent job of stopping him just short.

REMEMBER Chris Baker? Jason Peters just barely does. The Eagles' left tackle was asked yesterday about his Sept. 21 ejection from this season's previous Eagles-Redskins game, avenging Baker's blindside block that leveled quarterback Nick Foles. "Hadn't even thought about it," Peters said yesterday, as the Birds prepared for Saturday's NFC East rematch in Landover, Md. "We're going down there to win . . . Point blank. Whatever we've got to do to win, that's what we're going down to do. " Peters said that since Baker is a nose tackle, they probably won't encounter one another that much.

It is never the one thing, not in football, not in any sport, and certainly not in life. Chip Kelly stepped to a podium inside AT&T Stadium after the Eagles had beaten the Cowboys, 33-10, on Thursday, and the first thing he said was that the Eagles' offensive line had just played its finest game of the season - and it probably had. The Eagles rushed for 256 yards, averaging 5.7 per attempt, and Mark Sanchez was sacked just once, and it would be...

ARLINGTON, Texas - It's only gaudy if you can't pull it off. LeSean McCoy rolled out of the locker room and headed toward coach Chip Kelly, who actually took a step backward and began to chuckle. Kelly reached forward, rubbed the lapel of McCoy's white leather jacket and said, "What's this?" "This," said McCoy, "is my Thanksgiving outfit. " He dressed as a guy nicknamed "Shady" should dress, a walking PETA nightmare: Timberland boots, a dark-brown designer leather duffel bag, a light-brown ostrich skin backpack and - the topper - something like Michael Jackson's jacket from "Beat It," only not red. It was as white as Shady's smile, with gold snaps and zippers.

LeSean McCoy wanted to know whether he was cocky. The running back was walking to the podium after the Eagles' 43-24 win over the Titans when he stopped a reporter and asked, "Do you think I'm too cocky? Of all the players you have known, would you put me in the top 10?" You bet. McCoy was in a playful mood. He had just rushed for 130 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries, and even a sarcastic remark a few moments later at the start of his news conference elicited a laugh from the tailback.
