Fresh out of Fordham Law School a mere 10 years ago, Howie Roseman showed up at Veterans Stadium ready for the first day of his Eagles internship. He felt as high as a first-round draft choice. "I come in, I'm wearing a shirt and tie - I'm in the National Football League," Roseman said. Roseman reported to Joe Banner, the Eagles' president, who had hired him to concentrate on salary cap issues. Right away, Roseman had a question for his new boss: "Where do I sit?" Banner told Roseman the truth.

NEW YORK - The Jets' search for a general manager has taken an interesting turn as Tom Gamble, San Francisco's director of player personnel, has entered as the front-runner to replace Mike Tannenbaum. Gamble and Jets coach Rex Ryan have some history, since their fathers worked together with the Eagles. Harry Gamble was the team president when Buddy Ryan was the Eagles' coach in the late 1980s. Tom Gamble played a key role in helping general manager Trent Baalke turn the 49ers into one of the NFL's top franchises.

John Abraham, still waiting for a long-term commitment from the Jets, just got slapped again - with the franchise tag. The defensive end was designated the team's franchise player yesterday for the second straight year. Though that means he stands to make $8.33 million in 2006, all he wanted was for the Jets to prove they want him to stick around for the future. Now the Jets are expected to explore trade options because they are so far over the salary cap. Abraham's agents, Rich Rosa and Tony Agnone, stopped short of demanding a trade but also are interested in making a move.

The New Orleans Saints have fired defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo after one season - a record-setting year in the wrong way. New Orleans ranked last in the NFL in total defense and run defense, yielding the most yards (7,042) ever in a single season. The Saints went 7-9 this season and allowed 454 points; only Tennessee gave up more. Coach Sean Payton, who returned to work this week after a season-long suspension, announced Thursday that Spagnuolo, a former Eagles assistant and Rams head coach, was being released.

The New York Jets have signed running back LaDainian Tomlinson to a 2-year contract, adding an aging star to an offense that ranked No. 1 in rushing last season. Tomlinson's agent, Tom Condon, confirmed the deal last night. Tomlinson spent Friday with the Jets, capping it with dinner with coach Rex Ryan, general manager Mike Tannenbaum and other team officials. The 2006 NFL MVP, who was cut last month by San Diego, chose the Jets over Minnesota after visiting the Vikings on Thursday.

Brett Favre doesn't have to be playing to make news on Super Bowl Sunday. Sports Illustrated's Peter King, speaking on NBC's pregame show yesterday afternoon, reported that New York Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum told Favre he doesn't have to rush his decison on whether to return as quarterback next season. If need be, the report said, Favre can even take months to decide. However, a Jets spokesman disputed that report and said the team expects Favre to have a discussion about the situation by the time the NFL combine begins Feb. 18 in Indianapolis.

Bill Parcells rejected the Tampa Bay Buccaneers - again. The two-time Super Bowl champion coach said last night he will not return to the sideline with the Bucs or any other team. "Bill Parcells, early this evening, told us that he would not be returning to coaching," Bucs executive vice president Joel Glazer said. Parcells told CNNSI.com and Sporting News Radio he wasn't able to make the commitment necessary to do the job. "I hope that convinces everybody that I'm not coming back.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano has been medically cleared to return to the team by his physician and could be back as soon as Monday. On Thursday, Larry Cripe, Pagano's doctor, told the Associated Press it's up to Pagano and the Colts to figure out when he'll be back and how much he'll do. Pagano's leukemia was diagnosed Sept. 26. Cripe said that while the cancer remains in remission, Pagano will continue to take oral medication and will be closely monitored for the next couple of years.

Syracuse's Doug Marrone is set to try to turn around an NFL team after improving a college program down the highway. Marrone reached an agreement to become the Buffalo Bills' new coach Sunday, three people familiar with the negotiations told the Associated Press. One person said the sides were still putting the finishing touches on the contract for Marrone to sign. The people spoke on the condition of anonymity because there has not been an official announcement. Marrone will replace Chan Gailey, who was fired Dec. 31, a day after the Bills closed their second consecutive season with a 6-10 record and extended the NFL's longest active playoff drought to 13 seasons.

PALM BEACH, Fla. - The Eagles triumvirate of owner Jeff Lurie, general manager Howie Roseman and president Joe Banner have yet to be spotted in the hallways of the Breakers Resort where the NFL will open its 3-day March meeting Monday morning. But Jets owner Woody Johnson offered his first public comments on his team's acquisition last week of Tim Tebow. Nothing earthshaking. But he did speak, which puts him one step ahead of Lurie, who already has put out word through the team's public relations department that he is much too busy to talk to reporters down here.

In Howie Roseman's telling, the biggest trade of the NFL offseason so far came about because of a couple of well-timed takeout orders in Indianapolis. At the NFL combine last month, the hotel suite for the Eagles' player-personnel staff and coaches was just two doors down from the Miami Dolphins'. Dinnertime rolled around. "There are a couple of places in Indy that are really good," Roseman, the Eagles' executive vice president of football operations, said Thursday. "So we were trying each other's food.

Leaning on a wall outside the visiting locker room at Lincoln Financial Field late Sunday afternoon, Mike Tannenbaum didn't dare discuss how Mark Sanchez had helped to win him one more football game. The Dolphins' vice president of football operations, Tannenbaum was the Jets' general manager in 2009 when they traded up to draft Sanchez with the fifth overall pick, so sure were he and Rex Ryan that Sanchez's elite pedigree and affable personality made him the perfect franchise quarterback.

Mark Sanchez and Tony Romo won their first playoff games on the same night: Jan. 9, 2010. Sanchez and the New York Jets beat the Cincinnati Bengals in Cincinnati. Romo and the Cowboys beat the Eagles in Dallas. A big night for both of them. A big day for both of them coming up now. That night represents the intersection of the best argument for Sanchez and the best argument against Romo as viable and reliable NFL quarterbacks. These arguments, which revolve around the core question of how to evaluate those who play the most important position in sports, are particularly relevant ahead of Eagles-Cowboys on Thursday.

With the ink not even dry on the New York Jets' dreadful season, Rex Ryan fled to the Bahamas only to be photographed lounging poolside at a resort hotel, book in hand, with an interesting tattoo gracing his right biceps. It showed his wife, Michelle, wearing an unmistakably green Jets jersey emblazoned with the unmistakable No. 6 of embattled quarterback Mark Sanchez. And nothing else. The New York Daily News ran a front-page photo Friday and by lunchtime it was an Internet sensation.

COULD MICHAEL VICK become the new face of the New York Jets? This much is clear: It's no longer Mark Sanchez, who could soon become a former member of the team. And Tim Tebow might even beat him out the door. A person with knowledge of the situation told the Associated Press on Thursday that the Jets will consider all of their options regarding the two quarterbacks during the offseason. That means both Sanchez and Tebow are in limbo and trades cannot be ruled out. The person, who requested anonymity because the team's personnel plans are private, told the AP that the Jets have not made any determinations involving Sanchez or Tebow.
