Here's hoping Ryan Quigley has the softest mattress money can buy. A comfortable couch could suffice, too. The 5-foot-11, 190-pound running back and defensive back has been a busy young man at Lansdale Catholic. Not only does the senior also play basketball and baseball for the Crusaders, but he is also heavily involved in extracurricular activities, and has done it all while maintaining a blemish-free GPA. With all that busyness, perhaps the master of multitasking finds a measure of peace in football.

HOW MANY other NFL coaches or general managers would have been willing to do what Chip Kelly did in March? How many other coaches or general managers would've had the cojones to trade a 26-year-old, Pro Bowl quarterback only two seasons removed from a 27-touchdown, two-interception season for a guy who was coming off back-to-back ACL tears in his left knee? Zero, that's how many. But Kelly wasn't interested in what other NFL people would or wouldn't do. After missing the playoffs despite a second straight 10-win season, he thought he needed a franchise quarterback to help the Eagles go to the next level.

The Eagles traded quarterback Matt Barkley to the Arizona Cardinals on Friday for a conditional seventh-round pick in a deal that clears the way for Tim Tebow to make the 53-man roster. The trade headlined the eve of cut-down day, when NFL rosters must be reduced from 75 to 53 players. The Eagles informed multiple players that they will be waived, according to sources and reports, and still have a few more moves to make by 4 p.m. on Saturday. The highest-profile move was trading Barkley.

A FEW MONTHS from now, this might amount to little more than a footnote; we might forget why we cared. But context is everything, and on Labor Day weekend's Friday afternoon, when NFL teams were paring their rosters, what the Eagles did counted as monumental, breathtaking news. The Eagles' final preseason game Thursday night against the Jets was what we thought it was - confirmation that Tim Tebow will back up Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez, and that Matt Barkley's time with the Eagles was at an end. The Arizona Cardinals agreed to send a seventh-round draft choice to the Eagles for Barkley, the Eagles said, confirming a Fox Sports report.

John Dougherty, leader of the politically powerful Electricians union in Philadelphia, expanded his sphere of influence Wednesday with a new title. Dougherty was selected to succeed Pat Gillespie as head of the Philadelphia Building and Construction Trades Council, which represents nearly 40 unions in Philadelphia and the suburbs. Gillespie, who has served as business manager for the union coalition for 34 years, said he had wanted to retire by Nov. 23, his 70th birthday. He will remain on the job until Dec. 1, when Dougherty takes over.

Richard Schroeter remembered his conversation with David Kedra. Both were state troopers in the Montgomery County barracks - Schroeter a veteran, Kedra a relative newcomer. But they shared a bond: The younger trooper said he aspired to reach the same heights as Schroeter, a 43-year-old corporal and firearms instructor. Kedra, 26, wanted to someday teach others how to safely use guns. "He was on his way to being an excellent trooper," Schroeter said. He recounted the story Friday in a Norristown courtroom packed with troopers and Kedra's family.

HOUSTON - He is 36 and a parent himself, so when, on his first day as a Los Angeles Dodger, Chase Utley was asked whether he was thrilled that his mother and father would now be able to see him play more often, it sounded somewhat silly. But, as Utley likes to say, that's baseball. In his sport, it's often difficult to separate the child from the adult. Fittingly, it was the affection a young Utley still felt for his hometown team that, after weeks of discussions involving other West Coast contenders, led to the waiver deal that sent the six-time Phillies all-star to the Dodgers last week.

One last time, Chase Utley emerged on the field and walked through the handshake line with his teammates after a 7-4 victory over Toronto. When it ended and he approached the steps leading to the tunnel, the Phillies icon offered a casual tip of the cap to the fans gathered behind the dugout at Citizens Bank Park. This was the final act of a storied Phillies career. Late Wednesday, the rebuilding team finalized a trade to send Utley, one of the city's most beloved athletes, to the Los Angeles Dodgers for infielder/outfielder Darnell Sweeney and minor-league righthander John Richy.

CHASE UTLEY emerged from the hallway that links the home clubhouse to the field at Citizens Bank Park, shot a quick look at the herd of reporters camped out in the dugout, and set his glove aside to join his teammates for pre-batting practice stretch. Minutes later, he was in the batting cage, taking his daily cuts with the rest of the reserves held out of last night's starting lineup. And then he was at second base, getting his pregame defense work in, too. Utley did all of these things in a Phillies uniform, the only uniform he's known since being drafted by the team 15 years ago. But less than an hour before Utley took the field, the Phillies had already agreed to send the franchise icon to the Los Angeles Dodgers, a trade first reported by cbssports.com.
