ESPN Boston called in to give us insight on the Eagles newest safety in Patrick Chung. Reiss said that health has been a problem for Chung, especially last season where he struggled to get on the field. Chung played only two snaps in the Patriots AFC Championship game. Mike Gill also talks to Reiss about the possibility of the Eagles landing Sebastian Vollmer from the Patriots. Reiss said that if the Eagles make the best offer then they should be able to sign them.
Will be on CSN Philly tonight for Sixers coverage against the Miami Heat. Jackson believes this could be the highlight of their season tonight if they are able to knock off a team that's won 19 games in a row. Mike Gill asked him about a player like Spencer Hawes, who has been very inconsistent this season. Jackson also tells us the player he thinks that needs to step his game up in order for them to beat the Heat. Follow Jackson on Twitter.
Houston Chronicle's John McClain called in to give us insight on James Casey, the H-Back the Eagles signed yesterday. McClain said that Casey is a strong, character guy in the locker room and comes with an inspirational story. Casey lost his mother at a young age in a fire and was forced to move in with one of his coaches. Casey played 3 season in the Chicago White Sox organization and it shows you how athletic he is. Casey is also coming to Philadelphia with strong hands and won't drop many passes.
Former Atlantic City star and UMass player called in to talk about his time with the Vikings. Atlantic City plays tonight in the Tournament of Champions after winning their second consecutive State Title. Roe recalls his time in AC with the atmosphere being "electric" every time out with the rivalries that were formed with Shawnee and Camden.

Savard also talks about he likelihood of the Rams signing Jake Long and about the team signing Jared Cook yesterday. Read more of Savard here.
