THIS WAS March of 2014 at the NFL owners meeting in Orlando, Fla., just two weeks after the Eagles had slipped something into the drink of Saints general manager Mickey Loomis and persuaded him to hand over Darren Sproles for the bargain-basement price of a fifth-round draft pick. On that day at the Ritz-Carlton resort, Chip Kelly talked of all the wonderful ways they were going to utilize the dangerous pass-catching running back. "We've got to be smart enough as coaches to get the ball in his hands because he's a dynamic player with the football in his hands," Kelly said.

Welcome to the No-Lose Season for Jeffrey Lurie, even though some would portray 2012 as the most perilous for the Eagles' owner in the recent history of the organization. After watching the team fail to win a playoff game for three straight seasons, after betting the limit on quarterback Michael Vick, and after putting the head coach on notice that this is truly a make-or-break situation in his tenure here, Lurie certainly will be watched closely. The television cameras will peer into the luxury suites to catalog every cheer and every grimace.

IT'S THE CLASSIC debate about what constitutes fame, or even whether the various sports halls of fame are aptly named. Good-but-not-great players who accumulated gaudy numbers through the fortune of good health have squeezed through the doors of Cooperstown amid great debate, their statistics belying the impression left on some who watched them play and compete and were not overly impressed. Dave Winfield, Bert Blyleven and Gaylord Perry for starters, for me. Which is a good way of introducing the Hall of Fame discussion this week surrounding Eric Lindros and Mark Recchi, the 12th highest scorer in NHL history.

While the Eagles focused their efforts early this offseason on extending contracts for three of their young core players, it was no surprise Monday that they agreed to terms with safety Malcolm Jenkins on a new five-year deal that will keep him under contract through 2020. Jenkins certainly has done as much, if not more, in the last two seasons than tackle Lane Johnson, defensive end Vinny Curry and tight end Zach Ertz - the players to whom the Eagles handed out $144 million worth of contracts over the previous month.

Shane Battier visited the 76ers on Thursday. The team met with the former NBA player as a way to reach "out to basketball people . . . trying to grow our organization," coach Brett Brown said. Brown said the Sixers picked Battier's brain to see if there's a connection down the road. They may decide to offer him some type of role with the team. However, both sides ruled out Battier coming out of retirement to play for the Sixers. "That ship has sailed," said Battier, 37. "The playing ship has left the port.

THE SOUL re-signed quarterback Dan Raudabaugh to a 2-year contract, the Daily News has learned from a league source. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Raudabaugh, the team's offensive leader the last three seasons, represents the first key player to rejoin the club. He has an extensive relationship with head coach Clint Dolezel. Dolezel was re-signed in September, also for two seasons. The Soul went a disappointing 9-9 this past season and was eliminated by Cleveland in the first-round of the playoffs.

NEWARK, N.J. - Superstar forward Ilya Kovalchuk stunned the New Jersey Devils and the sports world Thursday, retiring from the NHL to return to his native Russia. In leaving, the 30-year-old Kovalchuk walked from $77 million left on the 15-year contract that he signed with New Jersey in 2010, including guaranteed annual salaries of at least $11 million over the next four seasons. The Devils announced the stunning news Thursday afternoon, saying that the 30-year-old Kovalchuk had alerted general manager and president Lou Lamoriello earlier this year that he wanted to return home with his family after 11 seasons in the NHL. "Gentlemen, this wasn't a decision made by the New Jersey Devils," a testy Lamoriello said at the end of a conference call held less than an hour after the retirement was announced.

Staying within the family, Monsignor Bonner has promoted Greg "Bubba" Bernhardt from assistant to head football coach. Bernhardt, 34, was the team's offensive coordinator for the last five seasons. Before that, he served in the same position at Cardinal O'Hara. "Obviously, I'm extremely excited," he said. "Since I got into coaching, it's been a dream of mine to be Bonner's coach. " Bernhardt, a 1995 Bonner graduate, was a wide receiver and cornerback for the Friars' 1994 Catholic League championship team.

PITTSBURGH - During Billy Davis' three seasons as the Eagles' defensive coordinator, he seldom, if ever, mentioned the safety position and stopping the run in the same sentence. In his two-gap, 3-4 scheme, safeties were quasi-cornerbacks with limited run responsibilities. Tackling was way down their list of priorities. The way getting coffee is for a Fortune 500 CEO. Yes, Malcolm Jenkins had a team-high 104 tackles last season. But about half of those were on guys Byron Maxwell and Mychal Kendricks missed.

Zach Eflin pitched the last few weeks with a fracture in his right foot, which was not discovered until Friday and will likely be enough to shut down the rookie pitcher for the rest of the season. The stress fracture was discovered when Eflin had an MRI on his knees. He was placed on the disabled list last week with tendinitis in both knees. Eflin said he had received treatment for the foot, not knowing it was fractured. He does not know how the injury occurred. Manager Pete Mackanin said, "It's unlikely that he will be back this year.

So I was talking with 76ers head coach Brett Brown at Eagles practice the other day, and he got me thinking about bat poop. Trust me. There's a connection. Just hang tight. Brown and Sixers general manager Bryan Colangelo visited the NovaCare Complex on Monday, and during a brief interview near the practice fields, Brown mentioned how much he was enjoying watching Dario Saric and Sergio Rodriguez - two Sixers players he hasn't had the chance to coach yet - in the Rio Olympics. Both of them, he said, "thought the game" very well.

AT THIS POINT, Zach Ertz has stopped trying to figure what the phrase "breakout season" means. The talented tight end out of Stanford had that presented as his story going into his second season and going into his third season. Now as he enters his fourth season since being selected by the Eagles in the second round of the 2013 draft, "breakout" is again associated with the expectations for the 25-year-old. "You know what?" Ertz said after the Eagles completed their open practice in front of 18,286 spectators Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field.

CHICAGO - Ohio State lost 12 players to the NFL draft after last season, and its senior class finished a four-year career with a 50-4 record, tying for the most wins over that span by an FBS school in NCAA history. However, when coach Urban Meyer said Tuesday that, "44 of our players, which is over half of our scholarships, are kids that never played in a game," it was less of a lament, and more of a hopeful sign of what's to come for the Buckeyes this season. "The issue would be if it was a non-talented young team," Meyer said.

Sam Bradford finally enjoyed a healthy summer. He was not sequestered in a training room rehabilitating a torn knee, like he did the previous two summers. An elusive break in his schedule allowed Bradford to spend time with teammates, focus on building the rest of his body - and even get married. Bradford begins his second training camp with the Eagles on Monday as the unequivocal starting quarterback, but with his career in Philadelphia likely expiring after this season. Yet all the attention devoted to Bradford's employment has overshadowed what's otherwise been the dominant story line of Bradford's career: His health.

Who could forget it? Donald Trump and wife Melania stepping away from the golden Currency Exchange entrance within Trump Tower and riding an escalator down, down amid a cheering crowd and the thumping tones of Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World. " It was a pure Trump moment - announcing the death of the American dream and his plan personally to revive it by running for the presidency of the United States. That was more than a year ago - June 16, 2015, in fact - and it marked a political season like no other.

Tommy Joseph was out of the lineup Saturday night against the Mets. Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said he would use the second half of the season to determine where the rookie first baseman fits into the system. Since Joseph was called up from Lehigh Valley on May 13, he has batted .255 with a .510 slugging percentage. "He came in like gangbusters," Mackanin said. "Then he went through that bad stretch and he came out of it, little by little. Now it is going to be determined: Is he going to come out of it big or so-so?
