Eagles set price for DeSean Jackson

Might a Philadelphia veteran's days be numbered in the City of Brotherly Love? The Eagles might not be actively shopping DeSean Jackson but they're picking up the phone and listening to offers. And, according to CSN's Derrick Gunn, other teams are interested. The team has taken inquiries from the 49ers and Patriots, Gunn has learned from a league source, and notified the Pro Bowl wideout early last week that it's not shopping him but is listening to potential suitors. Also according to the source, the Eagles are seeking at least a third-round pick and potentially more for Jackson, whose career-best 1,332 yards last season ranked ninth among NFL receivers. Jackson also tied a career high with nine touchdowns and averaged 16.2 yards per reception, third-highest among wideouts with at least 80 receptions. (CSN Philly) Comment

Another setback for Bynum title=

When the Pacers play in New York, they will do so without the services of Andrew Bynum. [Bynum] will stay in town to treat swelling in his knees that are causing him pain -- and to miss games. "The knees are still swollen so he's going to stay behind to get some work in here and some treatment here," Pacers coach Frank Vogel said following Tuesday's practice. "We'll see where he's at when we get back." Bynum, who was in practice gear but didn't participate on Tuesday, admitted there's some concern for his recent setback. ... [Bynum] has experienced significant swelling in his right knee to the point where he underwent an MRI and had it drained Monday afternoon. "This one is a little concerning for me because it caused a lot more fluid," he said. "I haven't had that much fluid in there since like the (2010) Boston Finals in L.A." (Pacers.com) Comment

The Dodgers' biggest hole title=

Based on payroll alone, no one's going to shed a tear for the Dodgers, but that's not to say the roster's perfect. If second base was a question mark entering the offseason, it is a much greater one (in relative terms) now. Having declined the option of the solid-but-unspectacular [Mark Ellis], and seen that [Alexander Guerrero] was in need of seasoning before he can handle an everyday MLB role at a new position, Los Angeles is left with the prospect of starting [Dee Gordon] at second. ... If the club has anything less than a strong start and the keystone looks to be a part of the problem, there will be intense pressure to act decisively to find a solution. That is rarely a good situation to be in. Likewise, the club will have to tread cautiously in managing its four outfielders. (MLB Trade Rumors) Comment
