BETHLEHEM - Everybody showed up who was scheduled to, by Andy Reid's annual 7 p.m. meeting that welcomes veterans to training camp, and then a few hours later, it officially became a full house, when the Eagles and top draft pick Brandon Graham agreed to terms on a five-year deal. "It feels good," said Graham. "Because I really wanted to get to training camp and coach Reid really wanted me to get to camp and now it's time to show them why they picked me. I have a lot of work to do, but I'm ready to go. " Graham might be able to take part in this afternoon's first full-squad practice, quite a reversal from when yesterday began.

An arbitrator ruled that DeSean Jackson owes former agent Drew Rosenhaus $516,415 in loans and fees, sources close to the situation told The Inquirer. Rosenhaus had filed a grievance with the NFL Players Association last June, claiming that the former Eagles wide receiver owed him more than $700,000 in unpaid loans and fees. Arbitrator Roger Kaplan, using the NFLPA's agent regulations, announced his decision on Tuesday. Jackson plans to appeal the ruling, according to his spokeswoman.

MANKATO, Minn. - Randy Moss is calling it a career after 13 seasons in the NFL as one of the most dynamic and polarizing players the league has ever seen. Moss' agent, Joel Segal, said yesterday that the receiver was considering offers from several teams, but made the decision to retire. Segal declined to comment specifically on the offers, instead saying his 34-year-old client felt the time was right to step away. "Randy has weighed his options and considered the offers and has decided to retire," Segal said.

DeSean Jackson, a month after he severed his relationship with agent Drew Rosenhaus, signed with Joel Segal, who represents Eagles quarterback Michael Vick. Jackson's publicist, Denise White, announced the signing on Twitter. Liz Mullen of Sports Business Journal was first with the report. Jackson had entertained the idea of moving to rapper/entrepreneur Jay Z's Roc Nation Sports, according to sources close to the Eagles wide receiver. But he ultimately opted for a traditional agent, albeit one of the more powerful ones in the NFL. Jackson is entering the second year of a five-year, $51 million contract that he signed in March 2012.

Nike wanted to make this clear yesterday: The company is supplying Michael Vick with shoes and gear and apparel, nothing more. "Nike does not have a contractual relationship with Michael Vick," Nike said in a statement yesterday. "We have agreed to supply product to Michael Vick as we do a number of athletes who are not under contract with Nike. " Of course, the Eagles quarterback is not like other athletes. His Nike shoes will get attention whether he is paid or not. When he was with the Atlanta Falcons, Nike paid him millions to endorse its products and put his name on signature shoes.

With rookies scheduled to report to Lehigh a week from today, the Eagles have signed all but two of their 13 draft picks. Only first-round pick, defensive end Brandon Graham, and second-round choice, safety Nate Allen, remain unsigned. Joel Segal, the agent for Graham (and for a certain birthday-party-loving backup quarterback), thoughtfully called back to say he never talks about contract negotiations. But, yes, Segal has noticed that first-rounders aren't signing yet, which just about has to complicate the Graham scenario.

An ESPN report caused a stir Thursday night, but recently fired Titans coach Jeff Fisher is not going to become the Eagles' next defensive coordinator, according to multiple NFL sources. ESPN reported that Eagles coach Andy Reid had informed candidates that the vacancy at coordinator had been filled.

Michael Vick hasn't had many - some would argue any - big plays on the football field since joining the Eagles, but he had a great day in court yesterday. A federal appeals court ruled against the NFL and for Vick in a case that means the quarterback won't have to repay more than $16 million in roster bonuses he received from the Atlanta Falcons. An Eagles spokesman said Vick would be available today to answer questions about the court victory. Attempts to reach Vick's agent, Joel Segal, were unsuccessful.

DeSean Jackson took his act down I-95 to Washington, where the former Eagles wide receiver met with the Redskins on Monday. Jackson flew from his hometown of Los Angeles to Dulles International Airport, where he was met by camera crews from both Washington and Philadelphia. He was scheduled to have dinner with Redskins coaches, including new coach Jay Gruden, during the evening and meet with team officials and undergo a physical Tuesday. Jackson, 27, has been linked to several teams since the Eagles released him on Friday with little explanation, but the Redskins are the only team to schedule a visit.

SOMETIMES it's hard to remember that 2 years ago, as the Eagles prepared to play their final preseason game at the New York Jets, just as they are doing now, scout-team quarterback Michael Vick was looking forward to meeting with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell about Vick's official reinstatement. Quite a bit has happened in the 24 months since. Today, the team will hold a news conference to celebrate a 6-year Vick contract, which a source close to the situation said will earn the QB $100 million, with $40 million guaranteed.

PITTSBURGH - The strangest part of the Michael Vick GQ magazine controversy might be what has been deemed most controversial. Author Will Leitch's main point isn't about whether Vick could have ended up with the Bengals or the Bills, though he says in the story that Vick was initially leery of the Eagles, and thought opportunities in Cincinnati or Buffalo might be more promising. It's a story about how blacks and whites interpret the Vick saga differently - a topic that was raised in these pages last season - and beyond that, how Vick's public contrition might not be the entire scope of his complicated feelings about the dogfighting conviction that landed him in federal prison.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - After Michael Vick confirmed that DeSean Jackson - who reportedly was in Philadelphia on Sunday - will report to Eagles training camp on Monday, there were three obvious questions: What time will Jackson arrive at camp? When the flamboyant wide receiver does show, will he be a happy Eagle or a malcontent only looking for a new deal? Who gets the first contract extension, Vick or Jackson? The Eagles did not verify Sunday that Jackson will report to Lehigh University, but the fourth-year player arrived in Philadelphia - accompanied by his agent, Drew Rosenhaus - according to TV reports.
