Another day, another name. With college-level big-shots Bill O'Brien, Brian Kelly and Chip Kelly out of the picture, the Philadelphia Eagles have added a Super Bowl-winning coach-turned-broadcaster to their list of potential candidates. 

Brian Billick interviewed with the team last week, according to CSN Philly's Reuben Frank

A league source said Sunday afternoon that the Eagles interviewed Billick last week and now consider him among the leading candidates to replace his good friend, Andy Reid, fired two weeks ago after 14 seasons as head coach of the Eagles.

Billick is the eighth known candidate the Eagles have interviewed for their head coaching job and the 13th overall known candidate.

So the key candidates right now appear to be Billick, Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley and Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy. Also in the picture are Bruce Arians and Jay Gruden, who served as offensive coordinators in Indianapolis and Cincinnati, respectively, last season. 

On to what else is being talked about in the league's most popular division:

Dallas Cowboys's Ian Rapoport and a team source of his seem to agree that moving from the 3-4 to the 4-3 will be easy for the Cowboys to accomplish.

Tony Dungy isn't so sure of that: He believes the Cowboys are two drafts from having the right personnel to make the switch, according to Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Silliness. 

New York Giants

From Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News: David Wilson is a second-team All-Pro.

Bleacher Report's Doug Rush examines the connection between Bill Cowher and the Giants.

Philadelphia Eagles

Phil Sheridan of the Philadelphia Inquirer on why the time has come for Philly to hire Jon Gruden.

From ESPN's Adam Schefter: The Eagles are checking out CFL defensive tackle Armond Armstead.

Washington Redskins

From Rich Campbell of the Washington Times: Trent Williams was slapped with a fine for shoving Richard Sherman.

And in separate stories, the Washington Post confirms that the NFL and the NFLPA have both signed off on the Redskins' handling of Robert Griffin III's injury against Seattle.
