STARTING in 1975, it just wasn't an Eagles practice without Joe Brown standing on the sidelines. Even in recent years, when he was legally blind, Joe would be there, always treated with respect and consideration by coaches and players alike. His friendly, outgoing personality endeared Joe to everyone he met, on the field and off. Joe died Sunday at age 62. He lived in Exton. "Training camp will not be the same without Eagle Joe," said head coach Andy Reid. "He was a fixture at our practices every summer for many, many years.

THE EAGLES are well aware that they haven't done this before. Team president Don Smolenski was describing for reporters Thursday some of the changes to the layout at Nova-Care, where about 300 to 400 invited fans will watch training camp, and at Lincoln Financial Field, where the Birds will hold five free public practices for which they have already distributed more than 200,000 tickets, Smolenski said. "We didn't know what to expect with the tickets. It's exciting to see it grow, literally on a daily basis.

YOU COULD almost hear the briefcase clicking shut Monday evening. That's when Howie Roseman finished a four-month negotiation with Fletcher Cox, perhaps already the best defensive tackle in Eagles history and probably the best athlete in the city, depending on how you regard Claude Giroux. According to ESPN, Cox, 25, agreed to a six-year, $103 million contract extension, $63 million of it guaranteed in various manners. It might turn out to be the most guaranteed money a non-quarterback has ever made, but NFL contracts are specious documents full of misdirection and hidden intent.

Mark Twain seemed to anticipate 2016 when he remarked that "a lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is still getting its shoes on. " In the intervening century-plus, that travel time has been greatly reduced. Today, thanks to social media, a lie can orbit the earth before truth's alarm clock even buzzes. We got another reminder of that last week when hackers broke into the NFL's Twitter account and mischievously transmitted the following faux news: "We regret to inform our fans that our commissioner, Roger Goodell, has passed away.

The final day of offseason workouts is anticipated by NFL players - it's akin to the last day of school before summer vacation. The Eagles' offseason program stretched two weeks longer than normal this year because they have a new head coach, and it included the introduction of Doug Pederson's schemes and philosophies. On Thursday, Pederson sent his players off for six weeks; they will reconvene for training camp in late July. The Eagles had an abbreviated one-hour practice, and players who have spent 10 weeks training packed up for their last encounter with down time until 2017.

The absences of Fletcher Cox and Darren Sproles might have been conspicuous during the last two months, but their return to the Eagles this week has been anticlimactic. Cox and Sproles spoke to reporters Wednesday for the first time this offseason, and neither player gave any reasons for headaches among the higher-ups at the NovaCare Complex. Cox would not address his absence - "I'm here today. That's all that matters," he said - and wants any discussion of his contract negotiations to remain private.

NOW THAT the Eagles have completed the shorts-and-two-hand-touch portion of their schedule and head off for some well-deserved R & R before the start of Camp Pederson in late July, I'd like to take a moment to offer some unsolicited advice to their "passionate" fans: Let it go. By "it," I mean your over-the-top anger toward quarterback Sam Bradford over his late-April trade request and two-week NovaCare boycott after the Eagles moved up to...

HERE ARE half a dozen things we learned about the Eagles during OTAs and minicamps, with the team breaking up Thursday until rookies, quarterbacks and select vets report for training camp at NovaCare July 25: 1 Sam Bradford is the quarterback. He's back from hiatus, he's taken charge, he's engaged, if you watched minicamp and didn't know who the three QBs were, you'd pick No. 7 as the starter. The biggest potential flash point for 2016 does not look ready to explode. Yet. 2 The rookie many observers thought might have the biggest impact this season (assuming QB Carson Wentz mostly sits)

JEFFREY LURIE came out of the NovaCare Complex about 15 minutes into the Eagles' first "official" practice of the offseason. The minicamps and training activities of the last several weeks were on a voluntary basis for veterans. So it was easy for the Eagles to dismiss the prominent absence of All-Pro defensive tackle Fletcher Cox. Monday's start of the current minicamp, however, was mandatory, and had Cox not shown up then it would have been a good indication that he was willing to go to extreme measures to have a new contract agreement.

FLETCHER COX and Darren Sproles, absent from Eagles drills all spring, took the field Tuesday for the first day of the team's three-day mandatory minicamp, but there was a twist. Though Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Cox and Sproles would both be limited participants, eased back in to avoid injury, that seemed to be the case only for Cox, who did no team work at all, participating only in position drills. Sproles seemed to do everything, including returning punts. Neither Cox nor Sproles was available during the time reporters were allowed in the locker room.

The Eagles begin their third week of organized team activities on Tuesday. Here are three story lines and three players to watch: Final week of voluntary workouts: When coach Doug Pederson discussed the absences of Fletcher Cox and Darren Sproles, he emphasized that the offseason program has only been voluntary to this point. The four OTAs this week mark the final voluntary portion of the spring. The Eagles will host a mandatory minicamp next week and then take a six-week break before training camp.

MAYBE THINGS will change, after third-round rookie Isaac Seumalo is eligible to rejoin the Eagles for training camp. Maybe Stefen Wisniewski, currently the backup center, or Malcolm Bunche, the second-team left guard, will eventually emerge to challenge Allen Barbre's hold on the starting position between Jason Peters and Jason Kelce. As Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich noted Wednesday in a radio appearance, new regimes name starters to create order from chaos, but within that order, the players compete and competition can change the order.
