He came, he saw, he left without a contract. Demetrius Bell was still a free agent when he departed Philadelphia after visiting with the Eagles over the weekend. The left tackle has met with four teams, including the Pittsburgh Steelers, Arizona Cardinals, and Green Bay Packers, since the start of free agency last month. But he remains on the market even though the Eagles were scrambling to find a starting left tackle after Jason Peters suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon last week.

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.

The Eagles' defensive plans for 2010 looked a little wobbly when middle linebacker Stewart Bradley limped off yesterday favoring his left leg, the day after Marlin Jackson's injury. Let's see - middle linebacker and free safety. Wasn't there some sort of trouble there last season? Bradley left the field and went inside midway through yesterday's workout. The Eagles later said he had tweaked a calf, an injury that shouldn't be a big deal, unless Bradley aggravates it or something.

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.

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.
