Chip Kelly is now in charge of the Eagles' personnel department, the result of an organizational restructuring announced by owner Jeffrey Lurie on Friday night that gives Kelly more power and leaves Howie Roseman with a new role but without control of the players on the roster. Roseman, who had been the team's general manager, is now executive vice president of football operations. He will direct contract negotiations, salary cap management, and NFL strategic matters. He will oversee the team's medical and equipment staffs.

Camden's L3 Communications building on Market Street, long seen as housing some of the city's best office space, was sold this week to a major South Jersey real estate firm for $35 million. The 575,000-square-foot property was owned by the state Economic Development Authority, which last year reached a sales agreement with the city's Cooper's Ferry Partnership. This week, the Cherry Hill-based Needleman Management company, along with a group of investors, purchased that agreement, company president Howard Needleman said.

TUESDAY EVENING, Eagles security officials escorted Tom Gamble out of the NovaCare complex, as is protocol for fired employees, and the team's future got a whole lot more complicated. Gamble, now 51, arrived 23 months ago from San Francisco to give general manager Howie Roseman the seasoned NFL personnel perspective many observers thought Roseman needed. Roseman had risen through the front-office ranks on the business side, though Roseman, now 39, has always seen himself as a personnel guy. Wednesday, the Eagles announced that the team and Gamble had "agreed to part ways.

A DRIED PUDDLE of blood remained on Pine Street yesterday between the curb and a gray Audi parked near 46th. Sad, residents agreed, but from what they'd heard it seemed that the police officer had no choice. An off-duty cop walking his Pekingese about 7 p.m. Saturday opened fire on an unleashed Cane Corso that attacked his dog and then bit him when he tried to intervene, police said. Neighbors reported hearing between four and six shots. Internal Affairs is investigating, as it does whenever a police officer discharges a weapon, but the shooting appears to have been justified, according to Officer Christine O'Brien, a police spokeswoman.

About a year ago, Philadelphia Police Chaplain Luis Centeno was approached by Stephen McWilliams, who teaches a social documentary film class at Villanova University. McWilliams was initially interested in profiling the chaplain, but as they talked, both began to see a more meaningful project - about a dark secret, one few law enforcement officers are willing to openly talk about. Suicide. The collaboration led to this to the release this fall of BLUE , a 40-minute documentary chronicling the occupational hazards of the job, and a related app to help officers identify and address the signs.

John Hoyt. The 15-year veteran had volunteered to serve as commander of the contingent of Philly officers heading to Saturday's funeral for slain New York City Police Officer Rafael Ramos. From his SUV, Hoyt led two large tour buses carrying about 100 officers, and four police SUVs loaded with more officers.

The SEPTA officers went to Hahnemann University Hospital on Friday bearing gifts fit for a baby born on the Market-Frankford El: a T-shirt with a SEPTA logo and a stuffed train car. Yanjin Li recognized them immediately. "I remember you!" she exclaimed as they walked into the room. On Christmas, Sgt. Daniel Caban and Officer Darrell James sprung into action as Li went into labor on a train at 15th and Market Streets - and helped deliver a healthy baby boy now named, fittingly, Chris.

The buses leave Saturday before sunrise, carrying dozens of Philadelphia police officers to New York City. Active officers, making the trip on a day off to pay final respects to a fallen brother. Retired officers, wanting to show support. And a class of police cadets, who will see firsthand, for perhaps the first time, the degree of sacrifice demanded of them. They go even as their own department has received threats against officers in recent days. The Philadelphia police will join a contingent of officers from departments large and small from around the region and country, all bound for the funeral of Officer Rafael Ramos, 40, who along with his partner was shot and killed a week ago in a patrol car in Brooklyn by a gunman targeting police.
