Per a Gary Shaw Productions press release, unbeaten heavyweight contender Bryant Jennings has left Peltz Boxing and Main Events in the aftermath of a fight with Tomasz Adamek not materializing. Jennings previously elaborated on the situation with BLH: Now advised by manager James Prince, Jennings will attempt to get his career back on track under the Gary Shaw and Antonio Leonard banner. Jennings had the following to say: I'm glad I'm finally moving forward in my career with a great team. Gary Shaw and Antonio Leonard are two great promoters who have been in this sport for many years and have promoted some of the biggest fights in boxing history. I'm ecstatic to be managed by James Prince because he's guided the careers of many world champions and his knowledge as a boxing manager is impeccable. It's truly a blessing to have these experienced gentlemen working on my behalf. I'm ready to take my career to the next level. Shaw appeared equally pleased and says he's working hard to get Jennings a big fight: First off I want to say I'm very thrilled to be working side by side with my good friends Antonio Leonard and James Prince. We've worked harmoniously together in the past when we had Corrales and it was an astonishing journey. Now we've come together again with an outstanding heavyweight in Bryant Jennings. From what I've seen, Jennings has the personality and talent to become a star in this sport. He's a very kind young man who brings an exciting style to the heavyweight division. I'm very pleased to add Jennings to our rich history of great fighters here at GSP and I'm working hard with Antonio and James to get him in a big fight. He'll be in the ring very soon. And Antonio Leonard goes as far as to say that they are confident they will eventually get a fight with the Klitschko brothers, and whip them: When Gary Shaw and I team up its like dynamite. Whoever we work with is going to be the next superstar in boxing. With Diego Corrales we did amazing things together. I have great respect for Gary Shaw who I started out with, not just as a boxing promoter, but as a loyal friend. I know Bryant Jennings is in the hands of a great promoter with Shaw who cares about his fighters just like I do. Jennings' work ethic is unbelievable and he reminds me lot of Andre Ward. Bryant carries himself with great respect inside and outside of the ring. James Prince along with Gary and me will take this man to the top. I can promise you Jennings will leap to the top of the heavyweight division and will whip the Klitschko brothers. Bryant who hails from Philadelphia will make America proud! Now naturally a lot of that is just promoter speak, but if any American heavyweight is going to beat the Klitschkos, Jennings' chances are as good as anyone's. Right?

In Jimmy Rollins' first full season in the big leagues, Larry Bowa was his manager. Bowa was also in his first season as manager of the Phillies. The two formed a bond. By 2004, Bowa's last year on the job, Rollins had grown into a .289 hitter with an .803 OPS to go along with his speed on the base paths and excellent defense. Rollins has talked fondly of Bowa in the past. The pair will reunite in 2014, with Bowa hired to be bench coach. One of his tasks could be helping Rollins, now 34, with adapting his game for the back-end of his career. "That's going to be Ryno's decision," Bowa said. "If he says, 'I want you to do this with Jimmy,' then that's what I'll do. We work for Ryno. I thought (Rollins) made big improvements in the last month of the season with pitch selection, and his playing in the field." Rollins finished the year with a mediocre .252/.318/.348 slash line, his .667 OPS the worst of his career. He did finish strong, hitting .292 in September with nine doubles. He posted a .797 OPS in that stretch. "There's not a play he can't make, and I think he is a better hitter than .255," Bowa said. "He's probably the least of worries for the staff. I think he has a lot of baseball left in him."

No change has been made in Michael Vick's injury status for the Eagles-Buccaneers game on Sunday. Prior to practice, Chip Kelly spoke with the media and stated that Vick is officially still day-to-day with a hamstring injury. Vick was yet again a limited participant in practice. The Eagles QB threw the ball in Tuesday's practice but did not take part in team drills. After Wednesday's practice, Vick confirmed he participated in 7 on 7's. A number of reports earlier in the week stated that Vick was unlikely to play against the Bucs. With Vick's status in question, it's hard to imagine he's a safe bet to play, but it hasn't been officially ruled out yet. Nick Foles will start in his place if Vick misses the game. Elsewhere on the injury report, Eagles safety Patrick Chung is still dealing with a shoulder injury he suffered against the Chiefs. Since then he's missed the past two games. He was listed as a full participant. Along with Vick, CB Brandon Boykin (groin), P Donnie Jones (non-punting foot), RB Chris Polk (ankle) were listed as limited participants.
