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.

With 4 minutes, 4 seconds left in the fourth quarter, the Eagles, with Mark Sanchez, above, at quarterback for the injured Nick Foles , led by 17-14. Their starting right guard, Todd Herremans , had left the game with an ankle injury. To that point, they had run the ball just 19 times in 50 offensive plays. Here is what happened next: The Eagles ran the ball 20 times in their final 24 plays (not including two kneel-downs), with one of the four pass plays becoming a Sanchez scramble.

The Eagles officially released offensive lineman Todd Herremans on Friday, one day after news initially broke that the team was moving on from one of its longest-tenured players. Herremans, 32, played 10 seasons with the Eagles after the team drafted him in 2005. He met with coach Chip Kelly on Friday about the decision. "Todd has been the ultimate professional during my two years in Philadelphia with him," Kelly said in a statement. "He is a tough player and I wish him all of the best as he moves forward in his NFL career.

The Eagles are making another change on the offensive line, this one just four days before the team's season opener Sunday in St. Louis. Guard Kyle DeVan, whose first practice with the Eagles was Monday, practiced with the starters Wednesday, ahead of rookie Danny Watkins, who has struggled at right guard. Neither coach Andy Reid, DeVan, nor Watkins would confirm the move, or say if it is permanent, but a team source said the change has been made. Wednesday practice lineups generally reflect Sunday's starters.

WE DON'T know the exact dates, but the NFL announced its preseason games yesterday. The Eagles will open with two games at home, the first against the Indianapolis Colts somewhere between Aug. 13 and Aug. 17. Andrew Luck quarterbacks the Colts, of course, but they also feature longtime Eagles stalwarts Trent Cole and Todd Herremans, recently released by the Birds after 10 seasons here. They also have running back Frank Gore, who changed his mind about signing with the Eagles to go to Indy, a decision that might have led to the Birds' signing of DeMarco Murray.

CONNOR BARWIN, Eagles outside linebacker and booster of public transportation, clearly is one of the team's best acquisitions of recent years. He led the Eagles and made the Pro Bowl with 14 1/2 sacks in 2014. The Eagles acknowledged that success yesterday by tweaking Barwin's contract, league sources confirmed. Usually in a restructuring, the team gets more cap room - the Eagles are down to around $7 million in free space, a little more than a week into free agency - but in this case, apparently, there was no benefit to the team.

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.

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.
