FOX 4 TV in Fort Myers, Fla., reported that police there arrested Eagles safety Nate Allen yesterday. The station offered no details, and the team said it was attempting to obtain information on the situation. Allen, 27, a second-round draft choice from South Florida in 2010, will become a free agent next month and seems unlikely to return to the Eagles. Daily News attempts last night to contact Allen, the Fort Myers police and Allen's agent, Todd France, were unsuccessful.

There were indications yesterday that the Eagles were close to completing a new deal with running back Brian Westbrook. First, a report surfaced on profootballtalk.com that "Westbrook was telling others" that he had agreed to a new deal with the team. Later, an Eagles source said the team was still working on the agreement. Asked if a deal was close, the source said: "Everthing is too interrelated to say that. " It is known the Eagles have been negotiating with Westbrook's new agent, Todd France, all week and it wouldn't be surprising if they wanted to announce a new deal during their initial preseason telecast tonight against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Soul placekicker Todd France made no excuses, but he also didn't make two crucial fourth-quarter field-goal attempts. And that proved to be the difference in the Soul's 46-45 Arena Football League loss to the Columbus Destroyers at the Wachovia Center last night. France's 42-yard attempt as time expired went just wide right, assuring the Soul's record dropped to 7-6. The Soul remain in playoff contention, but they probably have to win two of their final three games to earn a berth.

A little more than two weeks ago, Todd France was out of a job, carrying his bag of six balls to the University of Toledo field, working on his questionable future in the NFL. After the first half, it looked like France might be staying in the Midwest, returning to his Ohio home again. In the end, France's NFL debut surprisingly was not a flop, but a success. Much like the rest of the special-teams unit, France turned things around in the Eagles' 37-31 win against the Chiefs.

Deion Sanders is back in the NFL, this time with the Baltimore Ravens. The seven-time Pro Bowl defensive back passed his physical yesterday and formally ended his retirement by signing a 1-year contract laden with incentives. Sanders will practice with the team for the first time today, and expects to play in the Ravens' season opener Sept. 12 against Cleveland. Sanders, 37, played cornerback in his prime, but will be used as a fifth defensive back in Baltimore. "This game is not all that complicated.

Todd France missed the initial agony of what would become David Akers' remarkable feat. The man who will assume the Eagles' kicking duties Sunday when they play the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium was not yet in his seat when Akers struck the opening kickoff against the Oakland Raiders. "I was probably three to four minutes late to the game," France said. "I didn't see any of that. " What he missed, of course, was Akers twice kicking off in excruciating pain as the Eagles' Pro Bowl kicker aggravated the hamstring injury he suffered the week before against the San Francisco 49ers.

The contract is loaded with incentives, voidable years, and pages and pages of addendums. "I think it was the most complicated contract I've ever seen," Eagles president Joe Banner said last night. "It's definitely the longest contract I've ever seen. It was 52 pages of just addendums. " All that matters, of course, is that it had enough dollars included to persuade star running back Brian Westbrook to agree to it, which is exactly what he did a few hours before the Eagles' exhibition opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field.

Now the decisions become far more difficult for Brian Westbrook and the Eagles. After suffering his second concussion in as many games over three weeks, the veteran running back must decide what risk he is willing to take to continue his NFL career. "I've heard a couple different things on that," Eagles coach Andy Reid said when asked about the seriousness of a second concussion in such a short time. "Obviously, it's not a good thing for a second one to happen. I don't know the medical terms of it. I will get that information as we go throughout the week here.

Just three weeks ago, the Eagles' biggest concern heading into the season revolved around whether Donovan McNabb and Terrell Owens would talk. Now, the Eagles are faced with a much more serious matter - injuries to two star players who further injured themselves by playing key parts in beating the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. Kicker David Akers probably will miss this Sunday's game in Kansas City with a torn hamstring, while McNabb's ability to start is unclear. Akers kicked two extra points and a game-winning field goal in the Eagles' 23-20 win over the Raiders after collapsing on the opening kickoff with a hamstring tear in his right, non-kicking leg. His injury probably will lead to a roster move if the Eagles promote kicker Todd France from the practice squad.

If there was any doubt, Brian Westbrook made clear yesterday what he was looking for. And he'd like it to happen before the season starts. "I want to be compensated like I'm one of the best running backs in the NFL," Westbrook told reporters after the Eagles wrapped up morning practice. Westbrook wouldn't say what could happen if he was not paid the guaranteed money he wanted, but was "counting on" a deal's being completed before the Eagles open the 2008 season Sept. 7. There has been no progress in negotiations between his agent, Todd France, and Eagles president Joe Banner, Westbrook said.

BETHLEHEM - No mints on Nate Allen's dorm-room pillow when he finally settled into Eagles training camp at Lehigh around 2:30 a.m. yesterday. But fellow rookie safety Kurt Coleman had thoughtfully placed Allen's playbook on his bed, before Coleman settled down to sleep, about 4 hours earlier. Allen didn't start studying it right then, since he had to be awake at 6:15 for his first practice, after signing a 4-year deal for an undisclosed amount of cash. "I feel good. I just need to seize the moment.

One day after being released by the Dallas Cowboys, placekicker Jose Cortez landed with the Eagles, and all indications are that he will remain with the team even when David Akers returns. The Eagles made room for Cortez on the roster by releasing kicker Todd France, who had filled in nicely for the injured Akers during the last three games. The Eagles made the move because they believe that Cortez has a much stronger leg than France, who struggled to get his kickoffs past the 10-yard line.
