A few reports about the Eagles’ quarterback situation emerged on Super Bowl Sunday.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Philadelphia has received multiple inquiries about all three of their signal callers. Sal Paolantonio has heard that the Browns, Broncos, and Bills have discussed Donovan McNabb’s availability with the Eagles.
Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News, however, insists that “nothing is anywhere close to happening.“
No trade, of course, can happen before the start of the new league year on March 5. So Bowen isn’t going out on a limb.
Bowen indicates that he doesn’t expect McNabb or Kevin Kolb to be dealt, and that Michael Vick is the most likely trade candidate.
“The Vick-to-St. Louis speculation makes a lot of sense to me,” Bowen writes.
It will be interesting to see if the Rams are truly willing to surrender a draft pick for Vick with so many holes on their roster. There’s a good chance that Vick will become a free agent early next month, when he is due a $1.5 million roster bonus.
