LARRY BRACKINS, the last link to the Soul's 2008 title team, has been traded to Orlando, as the team continues to shape its roster amid injuries and a slow start. Brackins, a 6-5 wide receiver, spent six seasons with the Soul and is the team's all-time leader in touchdown catches. His most memorable play was stretching for a touchdown on the final play as the Soul avoided an upset by New York in the first round of the 2008 playoff run, which ended in the franchise's only championship.

Jack McInerney, who after a torrid beginning last season was considered the face of the Union franchise, has been traded to the Montreal Impact for forward Andrew Wenger. This is a classic trade in which both teams hope that a change of scenery is helpful to two young forwards who have played through long periods of inconsistency. Still, the Union have traded a player who was more productive than the one they are receiving. "This move was more about what is better for the team and the organization and the long-term implications," Union manager John Hackworth said Friday in a conference call before the team boarded a flight for Chicago and Saturday's game with the Fire.

MIKE RICHARDS and Jeff Carter come back to Philadelphia for the first time as a duo and it is impossible not to look back, and to wonder. It is a waste of time, of course, the wondering - but sometimes you can't help yourself. What if they had not been traded? What would this team look like? "I think it's a long time ago," Claude Giroux was saying. "A lot has changed since. I think there's only four guys on the team who were there in 2010. So a lot has changed. We have a new look in the Flyers' organization.

Besides acquiring Wayne Simmonds, Brayden Schenn, and Jake Voracek, there was another reason the Flyers made the stunning 2011 trades of Jeff Carter and Mike Richards: They wanted to make Claude Giroux the team's centerpiece. Given more ice time and more responsibility, Giroux has flourished in that role. Entering Monday's game against Richards, Carter and the visiting Los Angeles Kings, Giroux was fourth in the NHL with 74 points. He established a career high in points (93) and goals (28)

With each passing day, the DeSean Jackson saga appears to be more a question of when rather than if he will no longer be with the Eagles. A day after The Inquirer learned that the Eagles were actively shopping the Pro Bowl wide receiver and contacting other teams, the New York Daily News reported that Jackson would eventually be either traded or released, thus ending his six-year tenure with the team. The Eagles would obviously prefer receiving compensation - preferably a draft pick - for Jackson.

THE BIGGEST indicator that the Eagles are willing to trade DeSean Jackson remains the fact that the team hasn't responded to reports, or talked to Jackson about 2 weeks-plus of trade speculation, even after reading and hearing that Jackson is bothered by what he's hearing. For a while there yesterday, it seemed this all might go away. On 94WIP, former Eagle Ike Reese said he had been told that Eagles coach Chip Kelly had called Jackson and told the team's top receiver not to listen to the media speculation.

DUNEDIN, Fla. - The first week of the Jimmy Rollins Spring Training Saga began with the shortstop belittling the importance of exhibition play results, finding himself on the bench for 3 days, and then coming to terms with manager Ryne Sandberg amid the abrupt benching. The second week of the Jimmy Rollins Spring Training Saga began Tuesday, when ESPN's Buster Olney reported that there were "strong sentiments within the [Phillies] organization" that the team would be better off trading the shortstop.

ANOTHER DAY, another report about the Eagles possibly trading DeSean Jackson. This time it was Comcast SportsNet's Derrick Gunn, saying league sources told him the Eagles are not shopping Jackson but are willing to listen to offers, and that so far, the 49ers and the Patriots have inquired. Gunn also said the front office has informed Jackson that it is listening to offers. This might have been the most tangible piece of information to emerge from more than 2 weeks worth of speculation about a possible divorce between the Birds and the wideout whose 1,332 receiving yards last season ranked second in the history of the franchise.

Darren Sproles arrived at the Eagles facility on Friday for the first time since the team acquired him a day earlier, and management quickly showed how much it wanted the 30-year-old running back by giving him a two-year contract extension that could keep him in Philadelphia through 2016. Sproles, who was hoping that the Saints would release him so he could choose his own team, was pleased with the deal to the Eagles. His concern was going to a team in which he did not fit, but that does not appear to be an issue.
