It was fair to wonder whether Eagles offensive tackle Tra Thomas would be at this weekend's minicamp after he joined wide receiver Terrell Owens in hiring Drew Rosenhaus as his agent earlier this month. Thomas will be there, but he will not be participating in the activities because of a blood clot in his leg that the team revealed yesterday. According to one team source, Thomas has had the problem for a while. The source said Thomas has been attending off-season workouts with his teammates at the NovaCare Complex.

A SECURITY GUARD who was supposed to watch the cars of Philadelphia Eagles players during games has been charged with ripping off offensive lineman Todd Herremans to the tune of more than $225,000. Federal prosecutors accused Robert Von Ryan, 37, of Philadelphia, of going into the vehicle of a player identified as T.H., and copying his bank account information. He then allegedly transferred $225,034.52 from the player's account without authorization. Authorities said Von Ryan used the money to pay various bills and make purchases for himself and others.

An Eagles pep rally, scheduled to last till 2 p.m., took over Love Park late this morning, featuring players signing autographs, freebies, and a big slingshot that can launch Angry Birds. Perhaps 200 to 300 fans were on hand during the lunch hour, but by 1:15 rain returned, threatening to end the enthusiasm. Before the rain, cheerleaders and mascot Swoop were on hand, along with WIP (94 FM) hosts Ike Reese and Michael Barkann, who interviewed offensive tackle Todd Herremans, after his autographing stint was over.

A week after Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr shut down Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon with man-to-man defense, there was the belief by some that he would shadow DeSean Jackson all day Sunday. He did not. But Carr covered the Eagles receiver for much of the game and helped hold Jackson to just three catches for 21 yards. Jackson was targeted eight times, but it should be noted that a number of the missed throws fell on the shoulders of Nick Foles and Matt Barkley. On one play in the third quarter, Foles missed a wide-open Jackson downfield.

Each week, Daily News football writer Paul Domowitch will tell you the things he will be keeping his eyes on during that week's game. Here's how things panned out last night: 1. Making Campbell Soup: Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell was benched in the second half last week, but started last night. He's protected by a wobbly offensive line missing two of its best blockers, left tackle Chris Samuels and right guard Randy Thomas. The Eagles sacked Campbell six times for 38 yards and intercepted him once.

DeSean Jackson became just the third Eagle to register 1,000 receiving yards in a season in the Andy Reid era. With 140 yards yesterday, Jackson has 1,087 with two games left. The other two Reid Eagles to crack 1,000 ? Terrell Owens and Kevin Curtis. With 48 yards Sunday, LeSean McCoy broke the Eagles' rookie record for rushing yards, passing Correll Buckhalter (586). McCoy has 606. Rocca's third-quarter touchback was just his third in 64 attempts this season. Todd Herremans' holding penalty in the third quarter was just the fifth of the season by Eagles offensive linemen, and only the third in the last eight games.

Pitt running back LeSean McCoy, a former star at Bishop McDevitt High School in Harrisburg, will make a pre-draft visit to the Eagles, a league source said yesterday. The Eagles, in need of a running back to complement Brian Westbrook, could use one of their two first-round picks on one of the top college runners in this year's draft, which takes place April 25 and 26 in New York. McCoy is one of four running backs Eagles general manager Tom Heckert touted as a potential first-round pick at the NFL owners' meetings last week in Southern California.

After getting used to the NFL's ways as a rookie, Eagles offensive lineman Todd Herremans said he was anxious to make another major adjustment in his second season - to a new position. After playing offensive tackle last year and throughout his college career, Herremans is moving to left guard, where he is projected to be a starter, replacing Artis Hicks, who was traded to Minnesota. "I feel like a rookie again, position-wise, learning a new spot," Herremans said after a recent weight-lifting session at the NovaCare Complex.

The Eagles' wildest pick on the final day of the NFL draft may have been the one Andy Reid made from his closet, pulling out a Hawaiian shirt. Even that was an understated black-and-white flowered print. The Eagles pulled no surprise moves or landmark trades, but managed to put together a solid, if not flamboyant, draft. They used three of their seven second-day draft picks on offensive linemen. They also made trades to acquire two more selections in the 2006 draft. While later rounds rarely produce marquee names, the Eagles have a reputation for consistently finding low-profile players from obscure schools and turning them into stars.

Each week, Daily News football writer Paul Domowitch will tell you the things he will be keeping his eyes on during that week's game. Here is how things panned out in yesterday's game: 1. Slowing down the Panthers' ground game: Last season, running backs DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart combined for more than 2,300 rushing yards. There was some concern coming into yesterday's game because the Eagles finished fourth in the league against the run last season, and are missing two fairly significant components from that unit - middle linebacker Stewart Bradley and free safety Brian Dawkins.
