PHILADELPHIA -- Saying he is "extremely embarrassed, extremely hurt, and extremely sorry for my actions," Philadelphia Eagles receiver Riley Cooper apologized Wednesday for a video that showed him using a racial slur at a recent concert. "I'm disgusted and I'm sorry," said Cooper, speaking to a cluster of reporters outside team headquarters. "That's not the type of person I am. I wasn't raised that way. I've got a great mom and dad at home. They're extremely, extremely disappointed in me. " The apparent cellphone video, which surfaced on the Internet earlier in the day, shows Cooper at a Kenny Chesney concert June 8 at Lincoln Financial Field.

" Well, here we are, the day after the Eagles fell to the Carolina Panthers, 30-22, to drop to 3-8 this season. For those of you who might struggle a bit with math, that means now the best-case scenario for the Eagles is 8-8. In other words, things aren't looking good for Reid.

Brian Dawkins has decided to retire after 16 seasons in the NFL, he announced Monday on Twitter. But the eight-time all-pro safety still has another decision to make: Does he want to be remembered as an Eagle or a Bronco? Dawkins remains undecided about whether he should retire as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles, the team with which he spent the first 13 years of his career, or the Denver Broncos, the team that showed him love when he felt spurned by the Eagles. The Eagles reportedly have told Dawkins they want him to retire as member of their team.

Movie producer Jeffrey Lurie said Wednesday he will buy the Philadelphia Eagles for a reported $185 million, believed to be the highest price ever paid for a sports franchise. Lurie, who intends to keep the team in Philadelphia, bought the club from Norman Braman after weeks of negotiations. The Eagles did not disclose a selling price. However, reports have put the price tag at $185 million, which would eclipse the $173 million that Peter Angelos paid for the Baltimore Orioles last year.

Michael Vick did not receive an endorsement from his coach following the Philadelphia Eagles' third straight loss, 30-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. It apparently took Andy Reid more than 24 hours to decide that Vick will remain his team's starting quarterback, at least for Monday night's against the New Orleans Saints. There has been no official announcement since the Eageles' headquarters were closed Monday due to Sandy, the massive storm that has lashed the East Coast, but three sources told the Associated Press of Reid's decision.
