The Eagles pulled off a minor miracle in securing Brandon Graham and bringing the linebacker back into the fold, but they lost a potential free agent acquisition Monday when running back Frank Gore backed out of an agreement, an NFL source said. Graham had all but signed with the New York Giants, but the Eagles swooped in, sweetened the offer and the free agent decided to return to Philadelphia instead. The 26-year old signed a four-year contract worth $26 million with $14 million guaranteed and will be penciled in as the starting outside linebacker opposite Connor Barwin.

The Eagles sat out of the pass rusher shopping spree last offseason, waiting until the first round of the draft to address the position with Marcus Smith. They knew that one year later, Trent Cole would be older and more expensive, and Brandon Graham would become a free agent. The Eagles are now at the one-year-later mark. They released Cole and have not re-signed Graham. The depth chart at right outside linebacker thinned, although Smith's unproductive rookie season leaves the Eagles searching for more help at the position.

TURNS OUT, having Chip Kelly in charge of personnel is a lot like having Chip Kelly in charge of your offense, only there are no pauses for the officiating crew to get set for the snap. The Eagles blazed through the first 36 hours or so of the NFL's "legal tampering" period before the start of free agency tomorrow afternoon at 4 with a definite sense of purpose. The biggest move was the agreement with Seattle corner Byron Maxwell, first reported by Houston radio host Jayson Braddock, for what ESPN said was $63 million over 6 years, with a $25 million guarantee.

The Eagles officially released linebacker Trent Cole on Wednesday, one day after reports surfaced that his time with the organization would end after 10 seasons. Cole, 32, is free to sign with any team even before free agency opens on Tuesday. The decision was made after the Eagles and Cole could not agree on a restructured contract. "We spoke with Trent and his agent and expressed a desire to have him back," Eagles coach Chip Kelly said in a statement. "We have been talking for a couple of weeks.

THE EAGLES yesterday announced they have released linebacker Trent Cole, as expected. A fifth-round draft choice of the Eagles in 2005 out of Cincinnati, the 32-year-old Cole ranks second in Eagles history with 85 1/2 sacks in 10 seasons, trailing only Hall of Fame defensive end Reggie White. A two-time Pro Bowl selection (2007, '09) and an All-Pro honoree in 2009, Cole appeared in 155 games (145 starts) in a Philadelphia uniform, totaling 795 tackles and 20 multi-sack games. "We spoke with Trent and his agent and expressed a desire to have him back," said Eagles coach Chip Kelly.

The Eagles continued to reshape their roster and clear salary-cap space Tuesday by determining that they will release outside linebacker Trent Cole after 10 years with the team and jettisoning veteran cornerback Cary Williams after two seasons in Philadelphia. The moves, coupled with the trade of running back LeSean McCoy to Buffalo, left the Eagles with about $50 million in salary-cap space to use in free agency, which begins March 10. The Eagles did not discuss the moves on Tuesday night.

TODD HERREMANS' release after 10 solid years of service with the Eagles is yet another example of the often unpleasant business of football in the salary-cap era. Herremans was a 32-year-old offensive linemen with a $5.2 million salary-cap number who had missed a third of the Eagles' games the last three seasons because of injury. You don't have to be an analytics expert to conclude that his predicted 2015 playing value didn't match up with his cap number. Will there soon be more Eagles cap casualties?

LANE JOHNSON was the fourth overall selection in the 2013 draft, from Oklahoma. Todd Herremans' draft status was not quite that lofty - he was taken in the fourth round, in 2005, out of much less prominent Saginaw Valley State. But Johnson quickly attached himself to Herremans, his mentor in the ways of the NFL. Herremans, 32, is "someone I love like a brother - really helped me mature as a player on the field and as a man off the field," Johnson said in a text, after Herremans yesterday confirmed an ESPN report that he will soon be released, after 10 seasons with the Birds.

THE FINAL GUN had hardly sounded before the tweets began. Jeremy Maclin was campaigning to come back. Trent Cole was begging to stay. Maclin, the Eagles' best receiver since they took him in the first round in 2009, can hit the open market and cash in on a career season. Cole, ranked second on the team's all-time sack list, is due more than $35 million over the next three seasons. Maclin sounds willing to forgo free agency and, possibly, take a little less Treasury green to stay in Eagles green.

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.
