WHEN HE WAS taken fourth overall by the Eagles in 2013, Lane Johnson had a feeling the franchise saw the left tackle position in his future. He'd played it in college, and, with a talented but aging Jason Peters at left tackle, it seemed he could be a natural successor. With the news Friday that the Eagles signed Johnson, 26, to a new six-year deal that locks him up through 2021, his move to the left side of the offensive line could be nearing. "I think that's what they drafted me for," Johnson said Friday.

A lot of players who do not really belong there are going to participate in the NFL Pro Bowl on Sunday at Aloha Stadium in Hawaii. Jason Peters will not be one of them. He was selected to play in his eighth Pro Bowl, but the assortment of injuries that dogged the 6-foot-4, 328-pound left tackle throughout the 2015 season prompted him to stay away from a ridiculous game that he has played in many times before. It was a wise and no doubt easy decision by one of the greatest Eagles of all-time.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Jason Peters doesn't know who his new head coach will be, doesn't know who will be coaching the offensive line. But if those guys have any sense, Peters will be back for an eighth season as the Eagles' left tackle at age 34, Peters said. "I want to be here. I still got gas in the tank," said Peters, who made his eighth career Pro Bowl and his sixth as an Eagle, despite being in and out of games with injuries all season. Would Peters consider moving inside to guard, where he'd have more help and spend less time trying to pass block in space against players 10 years younger?

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Jeffrey Lurie ultimately will make the final decision on who is the Eagles' next head coach. But it's clear that the opinion of the Eagles locker room will factor prominently into choosing the man who will succeed Chip Kelly. The players certainly played a part in Lurie's decision to fire Kelly with one game left in the season. The Eagles owner said he had been taking the temperature of the locker room for weeks leading up to Kelly's dismissal. Lurie can't let the players influence the coaching search in so much that he aims to appease specific players.

Sam Bradford said Saturday that he wants to remain with the Eagles, and Chip Kelly was not surprised. It was the first time Bradford had been emphatic in public about his desire to stay with the team. Bradford becomes a free agent after the season. "He's always seemed comfortable being here," Kelly said Monday. "It may be news to you guys but not news to us. " Bradford said returning to the Eagles is "not my choice," indicating that it's up to the team signing him to a new contract.

Sam Bradford said after the Eagles' 38-24 loss to the Washington Redskins on Saturday that he wants to return to Philadelphia next season. It was the most emphatic the free-agent-to-be has been about his future, and he put the onus on the organization to make the decision. "I'd like to be back here," Bradford said, "but that's not my choice. " Eagles coach Chip Kelly previously said he wants Bradford back and that the team did not trade for Bradford so he would only be in Philadelphia for one season.

I DON'T THINK any reporters who cover the Eagles know Jason Peters well. It's kind of odd, given that Peters has made the Pro Bowl as an Eagle six times, as much as Donovan McNabb did, but the best left tackle in franchise history makes himself available in the locker room sporadically, and he doesn't make small talk. Over the years, Peters has been revered as an Eagles cornerstone, first for Andy Reid, then for Chip Kelly. His judgments, when offered, have been taken as gospel. Peters isn't one to try to drown the truth in a torrent of rationalizations or excuses.

When the Eagles have the ball When the Eagles and Redskins met in Week 4, Sam Bradford threw for 270 yards and three touchdowns - and Bradford is playing better now than he was then. That should be an encouraging sign for the Eagles, who will have the opportunity to move the ball against Washington. The Redskins allow 240.2 passing yards per game, but the 7.7 yards per attempt is one of the worst averages in the league. Opposing quarterbacks have thrown for 26 touchdowns and only nine interceptions against Washington, plus 11 passes of 40-plus yards.

AS EXPECTED, defensive lineman Fletcher Cox was named to the Pro Bowl on Tuesday, the first such honor in Cox's four-year Eagles career. Darren Sproles made it for the second year in a row as a returner, and left tackle Jason Peters was tabbed for the eighth time, his sixth as an Eagle. A source with knowledge of the situation said safety Malcolm Jenkins, center Jason Kelce and special teams ace Chris Maragos will be alternates. "It feels great. It feels really great," Cox said in quotes released by the team.

DeMarco Murray does not have an explanation for why his role has shrunk, and the underused, high-priced running back remained diplomatic Tuesday when discussing his demotion. "At the end of the day, you've got a position to make the playoffs, and that's what a lot of people's focus is on," Murray said. "I can't worry about how many plays I'm getting and things of that nature. I can only control what I can control, and whenever I get in, I just have to make the best of it. I can't worry about it. I'm blessed.
