AMID THE HUBBUB stemming from DeSean Jackson's release, the much-anticipated return of Jeremy Maclin and the drafting of intriguing new weapons in Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff, a 2010 second-round draft pick is seldom mentioned when discussing the state of the Eagles' wide receiving corps. "I'm kind of like a dark horse," Arrelious Benn said after practice on Monday. That can happen to a player who misses most of consecutive seasons, including his first with a new team. But it's worth mentioning that when Maclin tore his ACL on the second day of last summer's training camp, Benn was a candidate to step into a much larger role.

NONE OF US knows what he is like in private, but in his public life, Jeremy Maclin has never lacked in confidence. In media Q&A sessions, he routinely rejects any negative parts of the questions and is almost combatively positive in his answers. So, when you ask him about the theory that people recovering from serious knee injuries and surgeries often aren't fully back to health in their first year, he says with a smiling defiance, "Luckily for me, a year will be right at the start of training camp.

THE EAGLES opened their almighty OTAs yesterday but the session was closed to the media. And who said there is no God? OTA: organized team activity. If that term sounds a bit legalistic, that is because it is a bit legalistic. It comes from the collective bargaining agreement between the players and owners, a document that now circumscribes what can and cannot be done by an NFL player during the offseason and does it in impressive detail. From the end of the season to the start of training camp, everything is accounted for except the timing of the players' bathroom breaks.

UNION MIDFIELDER Maurice Edu, a member of the U.S. men's national soccer team that played in South Africa in 2010, was left off the final 23-man roster for this year's FIFA World Cup in Brazil. U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann announced the roster yesterday, the absence of Landon Donovan coming as the biggest surprise. Donovan, 32, is the all-time leading goal scorer in the history of the U.S. national team. Edu, one of 30 players who had been in World Cup training camp in Palo Alto, Calif., will rejoin the Union and be available to play in Sunday night's road match against the LA Galaxy, according to the club.

Without trying, Ed Snider sounded as though he had created a slogan for next year's Flyers. "I'm happy with the core, but I know we need more," Snider, chairman of the Flyers' parent company, Comcast-Spectacor, said during a news conference Friday at the Skate Zone in Voorhees, where the players were clearing out their lockers. Snider gave the team a "B" grade for its overall performance this season, despite getting eliminated in the opening round of the playoffs. He said he factored in how the Flyers rebounded from a franchise-worst 1-7 start, going 41-23-10 the rest of the way before falling to the New York Rangers, four games to three, in the playoffs.

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.

With the start of free agency three weeks away, Eagles free-agent receiver Jeremy Maclin remains hopeful that he can reach a deal to stay in Philadelphia. "I've always stated this is where I want to be. The Eagles have stated the same thing," Maclin said Saturday at the NovaCare Complex before tryouts for the Soul of the arena league. "We'll continue to get on the same page with all that and just get something done. " Maclin spoke to prospective Soul players before the tryout.

NEWARK, N.J. - In their second game of the season, a 41-23 win over the Giants at MetLife Stadium, the Broncos lost starting left tackle Ryan Clady to a season-ending foot injury. Next to quarterback, there might not be a more important position on the offense than left tackle, especially when it happens to be a two-time All-Pro such as Clady. If anything was going to ruin the 2013 Peyton Manning Victory Tour, it would be the loss of his dependable blindside wing man. But here we are, nearly 4 1/2 months later, and the Broncos are still alive and well, and getting ready to play the NFC-champion Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday in the same stadium where Clady's season abruptly ended.
