Reports: Cross Haynesworth and Bush Off Your Wishlists (if they were on them)

Reports: Cross Haynesworth and Bush Off Your Wishlists (if they were on them)

The local player movement scene has been a little slower than most people might have thought  since the lifting of the NFL lockout, with the Eagles notably sitting on the sidelines in terms of announced deals. Of course, we know that Kevin Kolb will be traded, with most but not all signs pointing to a deal with the Arizona Cardinals and involving Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a draft pick coming this way.

But throughout the waning period of the lockout, we also saw the Eagles linked to names like Plaxico Burress, Albert Haynesworth, and Reggie Bush, among others. Well, after yesterday's spate of minor-name trades, Thursday is gearing up to be a busy day, with at least Haynesworth and Reggie Bush reportedly on the move, and not to Philly.

Jay Glazer reports that Bush will be moved to Miami once a contract with the Dolphins is worked out, and Adam Schefter says the Patriots have sent a 2013 fifth rounder to Washington for the services of Mr. Haynesworth. No word on whether it had mustard on it.

It had previously been speculated that the Redskins would take just about anything to keep Haynesworth from winding up in Philly, preventing their nightmare signing of the big man from compounding with interest. Mission accomplished there, and they even managed to get a higher pick for him than they did for Donovan McNabb yesterday.

Bush was probably always a long-shot at best, as there aren't a lot of touches to go around the Eagles' backfield after Lesean McCoy has gotten his.

Meanwhile, after all the Phillies caps and Vick stories, the Eagles haven't been seriously linked to Plax at all this week. In fact, the team previously seen as the least likely to land him, his former club the Giants, appears to be one of two finalists for his services, along with the Pittsburgh Steelers, his other former club.

After the pending Kolb news, the Birds will turn to free agency once that market opens. The names most commonly heard on that front right now are DE Jason Babin and LB Stephen Tulloch. More on those possibilities as we hurtle closer to free agency.

Another award: Carson Wentz named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month

Another award: Carson Wentz named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month

Three games into his NFL career, Carson Wentz might need a bigger trophy case.

The 23-year-old, who picked up his first NFC Offensive Player of the Week award for his performance against Pittsburgh, has been named the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Month for September.

Yes, Wentz's first NFL month was a special one.

The No. 2 pick from North Dakota State has completed 64.7 percent of his passes for 769 yards, five touchdowns and zero interceptions. He's the first rookie in NFL history to put up those numbers in the first three games of a career. And his 102 straight passing attempts without an interception is also a rookie record.

It's hard to believe that a little over a week before the season began, Wentz was scheduled to be the Eagles' third-string quarterback and have a redshirt year. That all changed when de facto GM Howie Roseman traded away starter Sam Bradford and the team decided to start the rookie.

While many thought the decision to start Wentz was the beginning of a long rebuilding year, the rookie has the Eagles off to a fast 3-0 start. Wentz has played very well, but has also been aided by a stout defense, led by NFC Defensive Player of the Month Fletcher Cox.

This week, Wentz is spending some time hunting while the Eagles are on their bye week. He bagged another trophy on Thursday.

The team will be back in action on Oct. 9 in Detroit to face the Lions.

Watch: Joel Embiid can't get over how much he trusts the process

Watch: Joel Embiid can't get over how much he trusts the process

Joel Embiid really trusts the process. 

And he'll tell you as much over and over.

In fact, JoJo said it so much yesterdady that he was cracking himself up about just how much he trusts the process.

By most accounts, Joel was a bit rusty in the first couple of practices to kick off training camp, but, you know, you've just got to trust the process.

And he does. Trust the process.
