CIRCLE THE DATE

Now that the NFL's 2013 calendar year has begun, here's what fans have to look forward to.

Despite restructuring Michael Vick's contract and signing Dennis Dixon, the Philadelphia Eagles aren't shopping quarterback Nick Foles and would want a first- or second-round pick to even consider it, a person familiar with the team's plans told The Associated Press on Friday.

The person, speaking on condition of anonymity because the Eagles won't publicly discuss trade rumors, said new coach Chip Kelly and the front-office brass ''haven't discussed trading Foles with any team.''

Foles was selected in the third round with the 88th overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft. The Eagles ''absolutely'' rate his value higher than that because of his success as a rookie, the person said.

Foles replaced an injured Vick last November and started six games, going 1-5 on a team that finished 4-12.
