Trent Cole is just a country boy in the big city. Right now the rookie defensive end from rural southern Ohio is looking for two things: an opportunity on the field and a new hunting partner. Cole, a fifth-round draft pick out of Cincinnati, has survived the first test by making the Eagles' roster. He sees a chance to make an impact. The Eagles released veteran defensive end Hugh Douglas, and Jerome McDougle is not expected to return from a gunshot wound until five or six weeks into the season.

* Re: What Eagles' early cuts mean (Eagletarian blog, Aug. 30): [Linebacker Everette] Brown should have made this team. Trent Cole stinks; why they are keeping this guy around is nuts. Why they are switching to a 3-4 defense knowing half the guys on this team never played it is crazy, as well. Cole is taking a roster spot from a guy who I think had more sacks in this preseason then Cole had all of last year. We need youth, not age, here. Brown was a beast [Thursday] night even though was against ham and eggers . . . - william20, Philly.com

Eagles coach Chip Kelly said Monday he would like both LeSean McCoy and Jeremy Maclin to return in 2015 but conceded that there could be tough decisions ahead. "We are going to have a long, full process for this whole thing," Kelly said of roster evaluations. "But do I want LeSean back? Yeah. Do I want Jeremy back? Yeah. Is that the reality? I don't know. . . . What if someone gives us 17 first-round draft picks for LeSean? . . . We'll look at everything. " The two high-profile players face uncertain futures with the team.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Chip Kelly said the Eagles aren't "into statements. " The coach is always wary of labels, and despite the Eagles' dominating, 33-10 win over the Dallas Cowboys in front of a national audience, he found no reason to support the notion that his team made a statement on Thanksgiving. But some of the Eagles players, particularly on defense, had no trouble taking the bait. The defensive line chirped all week about earning respect. Fletcher Cox, Bennie Logan, and Cedric Thornton said they didn't think the Cowboys' offensive line was as invincible as some have suggested.

Marcus Smith has a plan for his first offseason as an NFL linebacker, which is more than can be said about his first regular season as an NFL linebacker. He wants to get bigger, stronger, harder. He weighs 260 pounds now, but "I don't look it," he said. "I want to be able to look it, be faster and more explosive than I was coming into it. " Smith sat at his locker for a while Tuesday, talking about his rookie year with the Eagles. It would be kind to say he has not made much of an impact.

Jason Babin officially is no longer an Eagle. Tennessee acquired the defensive end after the Eagles declined to match the Titans' offer. Under a right-of-first refusal clause the Eagles put into Babin's contract, they had 1 week to match the offer sheet signed Wednesday. Without the clause, Babin would be an unrestricted free agent because of his 6 years of NFL service. The Titans announced that the Eagles notified the NFL yesterday they would not match the offer. Babin, a first-round draft pick in 2004 out of Western Michigan, has played for Houston, Seattle, Kansas City and, last season, the Eagles.
