The Union made a major executive hire when they named Tim McDermott the club's new chief business officer on Wednesday. McDermott will have responsibility for overseeing the team's business operation, including working closely with the new USL team, Bethlehem Steel FC, along with the Philadelphia Union Academy. He is a former Eagles employee and the brother of Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott. So where does that leave Dave Rowan, who assumed day-to-day business operations in the interim as chief revenue officer after former chief executive officer and operating partner Nick Sakiewicz was fired in early October?

The agent for former Chicago Bears running back Thomas Sanders said that the Eagles made a bid to sign the free agent yesterday but that the offer was too low. The 28-year-old back had a tryout Monday and took a physical examination yesterday. But his agent, Harold Odom, said the Eagles' offer was so low that Sanders would be better off waiting for another opportunity. "Right now, he's on his way back to Texas," Odom said last night. "It was take it or leave it, so unless they come up in their offer . . . . " Eagles coach Buddy Ryan had expressed interest in signing Sanders during the Plan B free-agent signing period in the offseason, but Sanders signed with the San Diego Chargers.

Peyton Manning's first appearance with the Denver Broncos was a brief one. Manning played one possession in the preseason opener against the host Chicago Bears on Thursday and got intercepted near the end zone. In his first appearance since the Pro Bowl following the 2010 season while with Indianapolis, Manning completed 4 of 7 passes for 44 yards. On the game's first play from scrimmage, his pass was broken up by Lance Briggs. Then Chicago's Geno Hayes tipped the ball near midfield, but Jacob Tamme hauled it in for a 12-yard gain.

SAN DIEGO - Peyton Manning needed only one half to show why he still is one of the best quarterbacks in the game. This time, it was the second half, as the Denver Broncos became the first team in NFL history to trail by 24 or more points at halftime and win by double figures, downing the San Diego Chargers, 35-24. Manning, who threw a critical interception in the second quarter, finished 24-for-30 for 309 yards and three touchdowns. He was 6-for-6 on the Broncos' first possession after halftime, and hit Demaryius Thomas for Denver's first TD of the game at 10:56, throwing for 83 yards on the drive that made it 24-7.

After 10 seasons at Lincoln Financial Field, the Eagles are investing $125 million to renovate the stadium during the next two years.

The project was started in 2010 and has included research of season-ticket holders, the season-ticket advisory board, and focus groups of fans, as well as surveying architectural firms that have built stadiums since Lincoln Financial Field opened.

IF THE PAST is any indication, the San Diego Chargers will win next month's Super Bowl. Our prediction has nothing to do with the talents of quarterback Philip Rivers, running backs Ryan Matthews and Danny Woodhead, or receivers Keenan Allen, Eddie Royal and Antonio Gates. It's based solely on the Eagles' Linc to the past six Super Bowl winners. Over the last four seasons, the team that the Eagles have played in their home opener has gone on to win the Super Bowl. Furthermore, the last six Super Bowl champions all played at the Linc during the season they won the big game.

As a free agent, Rueben Randle didn't earn much security, but he won't be lacking confidence during his first season with the Eagles. The 24-year-old wide receiver, who spent his first four NFL seasons with the rival New York Giants, signed a one-year contract with the Eagles last week. The deal is worth $1.025 million, with $500,000 guaranteed. With incentives, it could be worth more than $3 million. Randle held a news conference on Friday at the NovaCare Complex and did not hesitate when asked if he thinks he will be a starter at a position that could use an upgrade.

A lot of players who do not really belong there are going to participate in the NFL Pro Bowl on Sunday at Aloha Stadium in Hawaii. Jason Peters will not be one of them. He was selected to play in his eighth Pro Bowl, but the assortment of injuries that dogged the 6-foot-4, 328-pound left tackle throughout the 2015 season prompted him to stay away from a ridiculous game that he has played in many times before. It was a wise and no doubt easy decision by one of the greatest Eagles of all-time.

The Eagles' best and most productive offensive player this season was a ghost again last week, missing from the practice field and the locker room, his future for the next month and beyond the kind of topic that pro football players don't often dare discuss. Ryan Mathews suffered a concussion three weeks ago, in a game against the Dolphins, and hasn't played since. There is no telling when he will play; he is, according to Chip Kelly, still going through the NFL's concussion protocol.

From the sidelines of the NovaCare Complex's practice fields Thursday, wearing a baseball cap and resting his injured hamstring, DeMarco Murray had a better view of the action than any that he got during his first two games with the Eagles. Murray has averaged a foot-and-a-half per carry so far this season. He's taken 21 handoffs from Sam Bradford, and instead of holes and running lanes opening before him, he's usually had opposing defenders fill his field of vision and drag him to the ground.

The Eagles practiced Tuesday for the first time with a reshuffled offensive line that featured four players in different spots from the starting lineup in Sunday's game. Left tackle Jason Peters was the only player at his original position. Todd Herremans slid from right guard to right tackle. David Molk played center in place of Jason Kelce, who underwent surgery for a sports hernia on Tuesday. Matt Tobin, who missed the first three games, lined up at left guard with the top unit.

DAVID MOLK'S girlfriend is in town, so they took a trip to the Philadelphia Zoo yesterday. Walked around, had a pleasant time. Nobody recognized the guy who figures to be snapping the ball to Nick Foles for at least the next 6 weeks or so. "That's the one nice thing, I'm 6-1, instead of 6-6. I don't really stand out in a crowd," Molk said near the end of the day he became the Eagles' starting center, with Jason Kelce needing surgery to fix a...

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - Whether he deserves them or not, Peyton Manning can't escape questions about his poor record in cold-weather games. With this year's Super Bowl being played outdoors at nearby MetLife Stadium, the Denver Broncos quarterback was sure to be asked about the wintry conditions - rain, sleet, snow, and a below-freezing temperature at kickoff - in the forecast for this Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. In fact, it took all of three questions before the topic was broached during the Broncos' first news conference aboard the Cornucopia Majesty docked at the Hyatt Jersey City on Sunday.

DENVER - A minute-and-a-half into his postgame news conference, the inevitable question was thrown at Peyton Manning. And he threw it right back. He wasn't ready to talk about the next chapter in the Peyton vs. Tom Brady saga. He'll get to that on Wednesday when the Broncos return to the practice field to start preparing for their AFC Championship Game battle against Brady and the Patriots next Sunday in Denver. Yesterday, the soon-to-be 37-year-old quarterback just wanted to savor his team's 24-17, divisional-round playoff win over the San Diego Chargers.
