Cary Williams met with Eagles coach Chip Kelly and general manager Howie Roseman after he told reporters Sunday that the Eagles weren't feared around the NFL and that he wanted to "establish a tenacity" on defense. Williams, who played for the Ravens before joining the Eagles, also said that last week's scrimmages against the Patriots would have been handled differently in Baltimore. "The words I used were taken out of context," Williams said Monday. "I just wanted Chip and Howie Roseman to understand that's not my intentions.

SO, YOU THOUGHT the Eagles' defense had no place to go but up this year, huh? You thought they hit rock bottom during the 2012 Juan Castillo/Todd Bowles debacle when they finished tied for 29th in the league in points allowed, 23rd against the run, 32nd in takeaways, 26th in third-down efficiency and 32nd in opponent passer rating. Think again. After spending the previous 2 days getting worked over by Tom Brady and the Patriots offense over at the NovaCare Complex, Bill Davis' new-and-not-so-improved defense moved over to Lincoln Financial Field last night, hoping a change of scenery might help them.

SO, THE EAGLES were pretty much who we thought they were in the first dress rehearsal of the Chip Kelly … ow, sorry, had to stop typing there, hand cramped up. See, I try to keep play-by-play, with notes on who made the tackle, the formation, etc., and Chip kept hurrying the snap and, hey, let's not even talk about how I can't decipher my notes after the second drive. I'm typing hurt here. Where were we? Oh, yeah. Chip Kelly era. Dress rehearsal. New England won Kelly's first preseason game, 31-22.

Tim Tebow smiled and said nothing. The New England Patriots quarterback wasn't going to discuss the imbroglio involving a certain Eagles wide receiver, even if that Eagle was his former roommate at Florida, even if the two were close enough to pillow-fight each other in the apartment they shared. Coach Bill Belichick passed, too. Running back LeGarrette Blount didn't want to touch the issue. The Patriots practiced Tuesday with the Eagles, as they will for the next two days leading up to the teams' preseason game Friday.

The Patriots are coming, and the Eagles are happy they'll have several days of reprieve from hitting each other. "To have competition against the best is always a good thing when you bring guys in," Eagles linebacker Brandon Graham said. "I'm just looking forward to a change-up, seeing some different people. Trying to pick up [Patriots quarterback] Tom Brady - it'll be fun just to see really where I am because they do a lot of different things. " New England arrived Monday night in Philadelphia and will spend the next four days here.

A grim-faced coach Bill Belichick said in Foxborough, Mass., on Wednesday that the New England Patriots will learn from the "terrible experience" of Aaron Hernandez's arrest on a murder charge and work to improve their player evaluation process. Speaking publicly for the first time since the then-Patriots tight end was arrested four weeks earlier, Belichick, who opened his 22-minute news conference by speaking from prepared notes, said he was "shocked and disappointed" to learn of the criminal investigation while he was out of the country.

Alfonzo Dennard of the New England Patriots was arrested Thursday and accused of driving drunk in Lincoln, where he once starred as a Nebraska defensive back. Lincoln police said Dennard, 24, was pulled over southeast of downtown just before 2 a.m. and failed a field sobriety test. A police spokeswoman said Dennard was taken to a detoxification center but not jailed. He also was accused of refusing a chemical test and a driving infraction and had not been charged. COLLEGES: Villanova senior defensive lineman Antoine Lewis is one of 20 players named to the preseason Buck Buchanan Award Watch List.

NEW ENGLAND owner Robert Kraft spoke publicly for the first time yesterday regarding murder charges against former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez. "If this stuff is true, then I've been duped and our whole organization has been duped," Kraft told Boston-area reporters during a 40-minute session in his office. Kraft said he believed Hernandez was a "most likable young man. " But he said the Patriots "made a mistake and are facing it head on," which includes a process in which they will "renew efforts and look at procedures.

The NFL Network wrapped up its Top 100 Players of 2013 series on Thursday night, and its almost complete shunning of the Philadelphia Eagles is now history. Perhaps deservedly so, after a 4-12 season that got head coach Andy Reid fired. Only one Eagles player made the list, running back LeSean McCoy at No. 45. That's way down from 2012, when the list included seven players: McCoy at No. 18, tackle Jason Peters at 42, defensive ends Jason Babin and Trent Cole at 44 and 57, quarterback Michael Vick at 70, wideout DeSean Jackson at 71, and cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha at 79. Peters had a good excuse: He missed last season because of a twice-ruptured Achilles tendon.

ATTLEBORO, Mass. - New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was arrested yesterday and charged with murder in the shooting death of a friend prosecutors say had angered the NFL player at a nightclub a few days earlier by talking to the wrong people. Hernandez, 23, was taken from his North Attleborough home in handcuffs just over a week after Boston semipro football player Odin Lloyd's bullet-riddled body was found in an industrial park a mile away. Less than 2 hours after the arrest, the Patriots announced they had cut Hernandez, a 2011 Pro Bowl selection who signed a 5-year contract last summer worth $40 million.
