Rob Ellis won’t have a ring for his thumb, just yet.
The Eagles have re-signed defensive end Cedric Thornton to a one-year deal, the team announced Monday.
The Eagles made a big commitment to center Jason Kelce when they gave him a six-year, $37.5 million contract extension. The dollars and years were an obvious factor in keeping Kelce in Philadelphia, but it wasn’t the only reason. The coach, and the front office, have impressed Kelce as well.
When Jonathan Papelbon talks, there is usually quite a bit of reaction. Earlier this year, when Papelbon said that he doesn’t perform as well when the team isn’t winning, that reaction was generally negative. It seems it wasn’t only a lack of fire that caused Papelbon’s disappointing 2013 season.
Even the biggest supporters of former Phillies manager Charlie Manuel would have admitted the team was in need of a change.

I’ll admit, the Sixers may have abused his legacy a little bit. Every time they roll him out for another ceremony or press conference it seems contrived, but every time he sits down to talk or walks out on the court, I’m in awe. I love every second of it and I can’t help it.
The Union made several moves throughout the off-season and even once training camp began they continued to add to the roster, acquiring 25-year-old defender Austin Berry from the Chicago Fire for allocation money on Monday
Connor Barwin is different than what you’d expect an NFL linebacker to be off the field. An overall socially conscious person, who listens to indie rock and is vocal about being ‘green’ and taking public transportation is not what you’d expect from a guy whose job is to hit other people as hard as he can.
In July, Riley Cooper was caught on tape using a racial slur at a Kenny Chesney concert. The incident quickly became a national story and consequently, Cooper became a controversial figure.
