A WEEK REMOVED from the Daily News reporting that Lane Johnson will miss 25 percent of the Eagles' season, the reaction remains thus: Yawn. Johnson is the Eagles' starting right tackle. He also is the Eagles' most replaceable player. He will miss four games for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs. Try to notice. It's not that the rest of the positions have no depth. In fact, several positions have several options should they lose a starter. It's not that the Eagles have a vast store of backup linemen.

The Eagles used to hand out T-shirts to their players that had a message for the next season. Two years ago there was the "It's Time" shirt that wound up having more to do with the end of Andy Reid's tenure than it did with finally winning a title. Chip Kelly ended that ritual, but if he was to have shirts emblazoned with a unifying message in the post-DeSean Jackson era, it probably would have the word "Drama" in a red circle and under a slash. The Kelly Eagles in Year 2 are devoid of divalike receivers, controversial quarterbacks, contract holdouts, and the sort of off-the-field drama that seemed to plague the Reid Eagles after their 2005 Super Bowl appearance.

AFTER THE Eagles finished losing to the Saints in their playoff game in January, they exited the field, dressed in their locker room and talked about how they expected to improve in Year 2 of the Chippah. After the Eagles finished their third preseason teaching camp yesterday, they exited the field, headed toward the locker room and talked about how they had improved on several categories of intangibles. That might be true. They might be a smoother machine, more completely comprehending what innovative head coach Chip Kelly wants on offense, more quickly understanding what innovative coordinator Billy Davis needs on defense.

BEING AN NFL player on the other side of 30 is kind of like being a sleeping old person. Everybody always is checking on you to make sure you're still breathing. Todd Herremans hardly is a gridiron geriatric. He's just 31-going-on-32 and is only the third-oldest player on the Eagles' offensive line, 11 months younger than left guard Evan Mathis and 9 months younger than left tackle Jason Peters. But Mathis was a first-team All-Pro selection last season and Peters earned his sixth Pro Bowl invitation.

There are a few gray hairs on Trent Cole's face, another reminder that one of the two longest-tenured Eagles is on the other side of 30. Cole, 31, came to Philadelphia as a fifth-round pick in 2005 at age 22. Todd Herremans is the only player who has been on the Eagles as long as Cole. Only 13 players have played more games in an Eagles uniform than Cole. He has more sacks than any player in franchise history other than Reggie White. "Everybody says, 'He's getting old because he's on this side of 30,' " Cole said.

The Eagles' signing of Allen Barbre to a three-year contract extension was done with an eye toward 2015, when Todd Herremans carries a $5.2 million salary-cap hit and Evan Mathis will turn 34. But could Barbre compete with Herremans, who is the most vulnerable on the offensive line, for the starting right guard spot this season? "I don't know. No one's ever even talked to me about it," Barbre said Wednesday. "I just go out and perform to the best of my ability. " Herremans doesn't appear to be in jeopardy of losing his job. Despite a slow start last season, he settled in and helped make up one of the better units in the NFL. But the Eagles certainly have enough confidence in Barbre, who is once again expected to be the first tackle or guard off the bench.

THE 2014 EAGLES are to assemble for the first time today at NovaCare, as the team begins the spring's first full-squad organized team activities. Reporters won't be allowed to watch, and Chip Kelly and Nick Foles don't talk until Thursday. We're all really eager to glean any faint hint of what Year 2 of Kelly will bring. There's a sense that this team's personnel will have the Kelly stamp on it, much more than the group Kelly inherited from Andy Reid a year ago. Two drafts and two offseasons' worth of free-agent acquisitions - and departures - have turned over the roster.

As far as alarms go, the Eagles' failure to address their depth at offensive line and inside linebacker in last week's NFL draft hardly rang a bell. They return all five players from one the league's best lines and both starting inside linebackers. And although they had opportunities to upgrade at each position this offseason, the Eagles were confident about their returners. They saw the need to inject some young talent into the pipeline, but they didn't. "Dagger," general manager Howie Roseman said about not drafting any offensive linemen. "Dagger in the heart.

When Jeremy Maclin signed a one-year deal with the Eagles, he tried explaining how he would increase his value despite what seemed to be a surplus of offensive weapons. After the Eagles released DeSean Jackson, Maclin's one-year signing proved prescient. He is now the team's No. 1 receiver, poised to fill the role that spurred Jackson to the best season of his career. And it should only increase Maclin's value for a bigger payday. "I didn't really think about it," Maclin said Thursday at teammate Todd Herremans' charity event, hours before Jackson was released.

Some of the Eagles' top players attended Todd Herremans' second annual charity event at a Center City ballroom Thursday night at a time when the future is uncertain for two of their most prominent teammates: receiver DeSean Jackson and guard Evan Mathis. The players expressed varying degrees of support while acknowledging that the organization has the final say anyway. "[Jeffrey] Lurie, Howie [Roseman], Chip [Kelly], they're not calling down to us, asking us: 'Do we need this?
