NO ONE WHO HAS spent any time around Jason Kelce expected him to show up for his news conference yesterday afternoon wearing a three-piece suit from Boyds or Ventresca Ltd., and the Eagles center didn't disappoint. He wore the same sleeveless T-shirt and sweatpants in which he had worked out earlier that morning, which tells you a little bit about his fashion sense and much, much more about his work ethic. Even on the day he became rich beyond his wildest dreams, he still made sure to hit the weight room.

THERE WAS A TIME when big-money contract extensions for 32-year-old players just weren't how the Eagles rolled. But times change, front offices change, exceptions arise. If Eagles general manager Howie Roseman had any reservations about guaranteeing Jason Peters $19.55 million in a 5-year, $51.3 million contract announced yesterday, Roseman did a very good job of hiding them. "He's got a chance to be a Hall-of-Fame-type player in an Eagles uniform. For us to get that kind of player, and have him end his career here, still playing at an extremely high level . . . just knowing that he continued to get better in this offense, in this scheme, with his work ethic and his determination, he's a guy that really can defy all the odds that you look at going forward," Roseman said after the deal was announced.

BIRDS WIN AWARDS NEW YORK - The Eagles' LeSean McCoy won the NFL FedEx Ground player of the year award, for the second time in three seasons. Denver quarterback Peyton Manning won the FedEx "air" award, presented at Radio City Music Hall on Saturday night. Eagles left tackle Jason Peters was tied with Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno for runner-up as Comeback Player of the Year, Peters having returned to Pro Bowl status after tearing an Achilles' tendon twice in 2012 and missing the season.

THE AMAZING season of Nick Foles will end up in Hawaii, as we all figured. Foles, the first alternate for any of the six Pro Bowl quarterbacking spots, was assured of going when Russell Wilson took the Seahawks past the Saints into the NFC Championship Game this weekend. The Pro Bowl will be Jan. 26, in Honolulu. Foles' 119.2 passer rating led the league, as did his ratio of 27 touchdown passes to two interceptions. He would have made it outright had those numbers been compiled over the entire season, instead of 10 starts.

NFL SOURCES confirmed yesterday that the Miami Dolphins and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have told the Eagles they intend to talk to player personnel vice president Tom Gamble about their vacant general-manager positions. Because Gamble isn't the Birds' GM, and these are GM jobs, the Dolphins and Bucs don't need the Eagles' permission to talk to Gamble, who joined the team a little less than a year ago from the 49ers, where he had the same title but lesser responsibilities. Gamble began his NFL career with the Eagles in 1988, when his father, Harry, was the Eagles' general manager.

At one end of the Eagles' locker room late Saturday night was owner Jeffrey Lurie, offering optimism in the aftermath of his team's 26-24 playoff loss to the Saints, speaking of the future as if it were full of nothing but happy days for his franchise. "This is just the tip of the iceberg," Lurie said. "It's a missed opportunity, and it's the tip of the iceberg. I think that everyone in this room knows it. It's a very young team, and at the same time, they already learned what it takes.

Despite being snubbed by the Pro Bowl, guard Evan Mathis was one of three Eagles selected to the Associated Press all-pro first team. Running back LeSean McCoy and tackle Jason Peters joined Mathis on the team selected by 50 NFL writers across the country. Both had previously been voted all-pro - Peters in 2010 and 2011 and McCoy in 2011. But this is the first time for Mathis, a nine-year veteran who signed with the Eagles before the 2011 season. "It's great to receive the recognition, and it's truly humbling," Mathis said to philadelphiaeagles.com.

Howard Mudd was trying to think of the free-agent tackle, the one the Eagles were forced to sign after Jason Peters ruptured his Achilles tendon before the 2012 season. "The guy from Buffalo . . . Demetress Bell," Mudd finally recalled. "Oops, that didn't work out. " The former Eagles offensive line coach, now retired, was going through some of the combinations of linemen he was forced to insert into the lineup after four (!) of five starters were injured last season. Mudd wasn't complaining.

Jason Peters had a publicist in the Eagles locker room on Wednesday. It was defensive end Vinny Curry. "Comeback player of the year . . . Pro Bowler . . . all-pro," Curry said. Peters indeed has been named to the Pro Bowl, but Curry threw in a few more suggestions. He wanted to make the point that the Eagles' left tackle is having a standout campaign, and it has come in Peters' first season back from a twice-ruptured Achilles tendon. "Look at his ankle. Think that doesn't bother him?"
