In case you’ve missed anything, here’s a round-up of several Philadelphia Eagles news items over the past week or two.
We’re still mired in a slow football news period while we’re all waiting for training camp to begin, which can’t come soon enough. However, there have been several off-the-field newsworthy items regarding current and former Eagles players recently.
Since I mostly like to focus on actual football — and none of the most recent “news” was about anything on the field — I didn’t feel the need to dedicate single posts to any of these news items.
However, I suppose these things have their place and, well, actual football news is a little on the dry side right now. Therefore, I thought this was better served as an all-in-one post.
First, I’ll start with probably the best of the bunch because it’s good news. Or, in other words, a nice feel-good story:

Like many members of the Eagles squad, this past week I squeezed in some last moments of relaxation before the start of training camp. For the first time ever, my laptop wasn’t opened for almost a full week. I didn’t check Google Reader for Eagles news. I was blissfully unaware of most things happening in the world.
But somehow, two bits of news still made their way to me...
It's a sad truth that the NFL seems to be the league with the most arrests among the four major professional sports. Any league that counts Michael Vick, Adam "Pacman" Jones and Donte Stallworth -- to name a few -- among its ranks is not necessarily the most upstanding league in the world. But the amount of arrests that have occurred since the Super Bowl, frankly, is...
The offseason has been busy in the National Hockey Leagues offices, so as part of my parole, I am required to stay away from dogs and educate people about free agency signings. Wait, I thought I was Michael Vick’s blogging brother, Jimmy Vick. I forgot, I’m the guy who’s still making Michael Vick jokes in 2012. I could write for CBS! Anyway, here’s a look at who just signed...
