In an ESPN radio interview in Philadelphia, Cincinnati Bengals receiver and pending free agent T.J. Houshmandzadeh said he would be interested in the Eagles.

Morning take: Among the things Pluto learned was Mangini was very impressed with linebacker D'Qwell Jackson, who led the league in tackles but is still waiting to take his game to an elite level.
