Sal Paolantonio said Sunday that three teams have spoken to the Eagles about Donovan McNabb: Buffalo, Cleveland, and Denver.
The Broncos are the only team in the group with an established starting quarterback, so it’s no surprise they told the Denver Post there is “no truth” to the report.
Perhaps the Broncos are just covering their tracks. Why not deny it?
Still, this is an odd fit. Josh McDaniels’ offense is much different than Andy Reid’s and we can’t imagine the Broncos giving up the compensation required to get McNabb.
If the Eagles are going to trade McNabb or Kevin Kolb — and we doubt they will — the suitor will have to be desperate enough to give up major compensation. Kyle Orton played well enough last season that the Broncos should not be that desperate.
