TAKING COMMAND of a group that hasn't seen you lead it through a game - or even a practice - can be tricky, Sam Bradford acknowledged. "It is a little bit difficult," the Eagles quarterback said yesterday, after again throwing in seven-on-seven sessions during OTAs. Mark Sanchez, Matt Barkley and Tim Tebow quarterbacked for all the full-team reps. "Yeah, I wish I were out there taking every rep. I think it'd make it a little easier to take on that leadership role and develop some of those relationships.

Sam Bradford's progress is measured in increments this time of year. The Eagles quarterback took part in only individual drills during the first week of organized team activities. He mixed in two seven-on-seven drills in the second week. The third week started Monday and Bradford added a few more snaps to his workload. He still wears a bulky brace on his left knee. He's still not as healthy as the other quarterbacks on the Eagles' roster. But Bradford remains on schedule - even if that schedule does not have a firm date for rejoining the team as a full participant.

Nolan Carroll's climb to the top of the cornerback depth chart shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who watched him break up pass after pass last spring. Despite a strong period that carried into training camp, Carroll fell short of supplanting incumbent starters Bradley Fletcher and Cary Williams last season. In retrospect, giving Fletcher the nod over Carroll may have been the most costly decision of the Eagles' playoff-less 2014. The starting position opposite prized free agent Byron Maxwell is clearly open this year, and through the first month of spring workouts, Carroll has made it difficult for defensive coordinator Bill Davis to overlook him again.

REPORTERS GET their first look today at the 2015 Eagles, when the team briefly opens up organized team activities, as mandated by NFL access rules. Chip Kelly is scheduled to speak, for the first time since the draft wrapup, nearly four weeks ago. Then, reporters will watch workouts, and when the players come off the field this afternoon, everyone is slated to be available, more or less at once, something that will happen only three more times before training camp begins, at the end of July.

After five months of turbulence in which the front office was turned upside down, the roster dismantled and reassembled, Chip Kelly is lifting the curtain on the 2015 Eagles and finally opening practice to the media Thursday. But the star acquisition of the offseason is not expected to be on stage at the NovaCare Complex. Quarterback Sam Bradford has been limited throughout spring workouts and has not been participating in team drills during this week's organized team activities, NFL sources said.

The Eagles announced yesterday that cornerback JaCorey Shepherd, their sixth-round draft choice from Kansas, has agreed to terms with the club on a four-year contract. Quick signings of draft choices are some of the results of recent NFL collective bargaining agreements, which leave teams with a set amount of money they can spend on rookies, based upon their draft position. Gone, for the most part, are the days of long summer holdouts. Shepherd's signing leaves only one unsigned pick from this year's draft class: linebacker Jordan Hicks, their third-round choice from Texas.

RAY DIDINGER and Tommy McDonald go way back. In the late 1950s and early '60s, Didinger - then just a boy - would carry the flanker's helmet after practices at Eagles training camp in Hershey. Who knew that years later, Didinger would spearhead a successful campaign to get McDonald into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and then introduce his boyhood hero at the induction ceremony in Canton, Ohio in 1998? It's the stuff of Hollywood movies. Or in Didinger's case, a play. The former Daily News columnist has penned "Tommy and Me" and Theatre Exile will stage a reading at the Plays and Players Theatre in Center City on May 4 at 7 p.m. "My mom and dad took me on vacation to Hershey for two weeks every year during Eagles training camp," Didinger said yesterday.

The Lehigh Valley Phantoms didn't make the playoffs this season, but coach Terry Murray gave positive reviews on several of his players - especially defensemen Brandon Manning and Shayne Gostisbehere. Gostisbehere, 22, missed most of the season because of knee surgery. "But in the big picture, when you look back 10 years from now, you might say Gostisbehere's injury was a real positive in the sense he became a player who really paid attention to the off-ice part of it and became a bigger, stronger player," Murray said Tuesday, one day after he and general manager Ron Hextall had individual exit interviews with the Phantoms, the Flyers' AHL farm team.

The Eagles officially signed quarterback Tim Tebow to a one-year contract Monday, a relatively inconsequential transaction for a down-the-depth-chart player that drew national headlines because it involved Tebow. The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner has spent the last two seasons out of football, but his fame created a fascination throughout Philadelphia upon reports of his pending signing - enough that a local soft pretzel company designed pretzels in the shape of him praying on one knee: Tebowing.

TO MOST football fans, Willie McGinest is the NFL Network analyst who was selected to two Pro Bowls and was a big part of three championship teams for the New England Patriots. To Soul linebacker Beau Bell, the former linebacker represents something much more personal. Bell was a fourth-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2008 when he met McGinest, who was about to begin his 15th and final NFL season. Bell tweaked his knee in training camp and was coming off arthroscopic surgery.
