When the Eagles conclude today's "voluntary" workout, the next time they will be getting together will be on Tuesday at West Chester University for their opening meeting of official training camp. But as many as 12 Eagles who answered coach Buddy Ryan's call for volunteers over the last three weeks may be AWOL. With yesterday's signing of rookie draft picks Eric Everett, a fifth-round cornerback, and Joe Schuster, a 10th-round defensive tackle, the Eagles now have two draft picks and 10 veteran free agents unsigned.

Bobby Abreu, the Phillies' rising star in right field, will miss today's first full-squad workout of the spring. Abreu, who signed a three-year, $14.25 million contract last month, has been delayed traveling to Florida from Venezuela because his mother has been ill. Abreu is expected to arrive at camp sometime tomorrow, but possibly not in time to work out. He is expected to take part in the full workout Friday. No one else is expected to arrive late. In fact, most position players have been in camp for several days, taking batting practice and lifting weights.

Steve Spurrier was his usual maverick self when he arrived in Carlisle, Pa., for his first NFL training camp as a head coach yesterday. He barely had unpacked his bags when he immediately made it clear he would rather be somewhere else. "I don't understand the importance of getting away, to tell you the truth," Spurrier said as the Washington Redskins checked into their dorms at Dickinson College. Spurrier, an avid golfer whose first words when he walked into the room before the news conference were, "Shot 75 today," said he might move training camp back to Redskin Park in the Washington suburbs next season.

Never mind the NFL labor acrimony, there will be football at the NovaCare Complex. Arena football, that is. The Soul will prepare for its return to the indoor game by conducting training camp at the Eagles' practice bubble beginning this weekend. The 2-year hiatus that followed the Soul's 2008 championship has resulted in a total makeover of the roster and coaching staff. Mike Hohensee, who coached Chicago to the 2006 AFL title, will lead the Soul. The only familiar face will be Phil Bogle, an all-Arena lineman for Philadelphia's title team, who has been brought on as an assistant coach.
