The Eagles have not made a transaction throughout training camp. The last time they added or cut a player was May 19, which is the longest stretch in the NFL. Since Howie Roseman became general manager in 2010, the Eagles had not gone more than three days into training camp without making a move until this preseason. One major reason is the relative health of the Eagles. Some moves in camp are made because of necessity, with depth thin at positions because of injuries. The Eagles have not lost a player for an extended period.

Safety Keelan Johnson returned to the Eagles on Thursday after missing four practices because of an arrest on assault charges. Johnson was excused from the team after he met with coach Chip Kelly on July 24. In that meeting, Kelly told Johnson that he did not want to cut the second-year player. "He could easily have gotten rid of me," Johnson said. "It was a situation I wish I could avoid. Just give it to [Kelly] and this organization. " Johnson would not comment on the details of his arrest.

WASHINGTON - Shortly after nothing happened, Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. promised something was going to happen. "I don't see a scenario right now where our roster is going to be the same roster in April that it is right now," Amaro said Thursday after baseball's non-waiver trade deadline expired without the Phillies making a single move. "It will change. It will need to change because we need to get better. " There are not many things you could get Phillies fans to agree with Amaro about during these dark days, but the idea that his last-place ball club needs to make changes is definitely one they'd be on board with.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The finishing pieces still believe the team for which they chose to play is close to winning again. The Phillies lavishly paid rightfielder Marlon Byrd and closer Jonathan Papelbon as they tried to complete a star-studded roster. They signed them because they expected to contend for a playoff spot. Instead, when the non-waiver trade deadline passed at 4 p.m. yesterday, the Phillies had the third-worst record in the National League, stood 12 1/2 games out of first place in the NL East behind the host Nationals and 14 games below .500.

The Phillies made three roster moves before Monday's game at Citizens Bank Park against the San Francisco Giants. The most difficult move was designating outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr. for assignment. Just last month, Gwynn's father, Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn, died. "It was tough with Tony with everything he's gone through," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said before the game. "He's a very professional guy, a terrific teammate, so it's tough. " Sandberg said that Gwynn could still remain with the organization.

AMONG THE never-ending games of what-if played repeatedly over the last few summers here, the what-if-Pat-Gillick had stayed game probably does not get enough plays. At the very least, it is far less popular than the what-if-they-had-picked-Mike-Arbuckle-as-GM game. And yet there is far more evidence to make the case that things would have been different if Pat remained general manager than if Mike was made one, evidence supplied in his previous stops in Toronto, Baltimore and Seattle.

Scott Laughton stood at the front of his line, poised to skate, before each end-to-end drill on Thursday. On the first day of Flyers developmental camp, Laughton glided through most of the exercises, the first skater to reach the other end of the ice. Still just 20 years old with a thin chin-strap beard, the Flyers' 2012 first-round pick is a veteran of sorts at the prospect camp, and he carried himself like one. This year, the stakes are different...

THOUGH THE VISION for the 76ers' brass is focused years away, as evidenced by last week's draft from which their top two picks probably won't play for them this season, there still is the responsibility of fielding a team for this coming campaign. Seven players are on the payroll (Thaddeus Young, Jason Richardson, Nerlens Noel, Michael Carter-Williams, Eric Maynor, Tony Wroten and Arnett Moultrie). Maynor already was bought out, and it wouldn't be surprising if Richardson, who is scheduled to make $6.6 million this season and is coming off major knee surgery, and Moultrie, who is to make $1.1 million but tested positive for marijuana last season and possessed a salty attitude, also are given deals to move on. The team also has options on guard Elliot Williams and center Jarvis Varnado, each for just under $1 million.

FOLLOWING HIS team's recent U.S. Open Cup victory against the New York Cosmos, Union interim manager Jim Curtin alluded to reinforcements to come after the World Cup. It's now evident that one potential lineup fortification could come via a player already on Philadelphia's roster. Curtin said yesterday the Union is "in close communication with" and "actively looking" at center back Carlos Valdes, who's in Brazil competing in the World Cup with the Colombian national team. The Union still owns the rights to Valdes, a defender for the team in 65 matches during the 2011 and 2012 seasons.
