Report: Eagles interested in Troy Smith as Vick replacement

If the Eagles decide to part ways with quarterback Mike Vick, they’ll need a replacement.

Howard Eskin of WIP reported earlier today via Twitter that the team is eyeballing Troy Smith of the Ravens.  Smith, who won a Heisman Trophy at Ohio State, has faded deep into the depth chart in Baltimore, behind Joe Flacco and recent arrival Marc Bulger.

As to the question of whether the Eagles will make a change, Eskin writes, “Say goodbye to Vick!!!

But didn’t the Eagles insist they’re not thinking about cutting him?  For more on that dynamic, here’s another PFTV segment.

    Troy Smith fell on the depth chart and they haven’t even opened camp?
    At least I know plenty of people are getting their recommended 8 hours of sleep. I only hope this rumor is true so Troy Smith can wake all of you up when he’s throwing touchdowns to Desean Jackson all season.

    It’s time to cut your losses, and end this social experiment, it didn’t work. I have nothing against Vick but I don’t want him on the Eagles.
    The Eagles took a chance on him and it didn’t work . time to put him in the Rearview mirror and move forward with this team.

    Great job, PFT! Stay on this Vick story, I see a pulitzer in your future!

    Florio …
    If you plan on using Howard Eskin , as a “source” …. you better go back to Law School, and forget NFL reporting.
    Eskin as a source …now that is funny.

    Those miserable Eagles. First you give up your franchise player to a division rival for a bag of chips, cut Westbrook loose and now your fate hangs on the shoulders of back up QB and a depleted defense.
    Kudos to that front office. It’s not too late to sign Jeff Garcia.

  7. Ryan_Mack says: Jul 7, 2010 3:04 PM

    Damnit.
    I was really hoping for a Jeff Garcia comeback!!!

  9. dbs0011 says: Jul 7, 2010 3:09 PM

    Yea Troy, get outta Baltimore and go somewhere you can start! I’m sure the fans will be much more supportive too ;)

  10. Popeye says: Jul 7, 2010 3:11 PM

    who cares about this..Lets pull for the Dutch in the world cup!!! Vikki Vette and Bobbi Eden!!!!

  11. RyanT. says: Jul 7, 2010 3:11 PM

    Good!
    Maybe, Jeff Lurie and Andy Reid finally wised up and realized that there is no upside for the Eagles to keep Michael Vick on the roster.
    Vick is overpaid and they don’t trust him to grasp the offense in the event that Kolb goes down.
    Trade for Troy Smith and cut all ties to Michael Vick!
    If Vick is as good as all his delusional followers claim, he’ll have no trouble landing on another team’s roster. And, if he does more power to him! But, at least he won’t be on my favorite team anymore!

    So wait…what is the story here?
    We don’t know if the Eagles are getting rid of Vick, but if they do keep your eye on Smith?

  14. StupidRednecks says: Jul 7, 2010 3:24 PM

    McNabb, Vick or Smith, doesn’t matter, a brotha will be starting by week 3 :)

  16. bkcox says: Jul 7, 2010 3:27 PM

    You guys do know that Howard Eskin has not been in tune with the Philadelphia sports scene for years. He’s a bottom feeder who’s going senile.
    Top notch news reporting here.

  17. birdmancometh says: Jul 7, 2010 3:30 PM

    “Boy, Andy Reid loves QB’s who suck.”
    Like McNabb…his only starting QB….well….ever?
    Or maybe all of the backups that won games for him during McNabbs injuries? Detmer won games, Feeley won games, Garcia won games (including playoff games), we won’t talk about Pederson since he was just a coach with a uniform.
    Good comment though.

  18. DeuceDeuce13 says: Jul 7, 2010 3:33 PM

    Man, it’s sad to think Troy will probably be delt. But he could really shine in Philly. My jaw dropped when the ravens picked up bulger. But go ‘head Troy shock the haters. I’m an avid ravens fan but I’d buy a smith eagles jersey

  19. RyanT. says: Jul 7, 2010 3:34 PM

    Nice to see Stupidrednecks admitting that all he cares about is a “brotha starting.”
    Nice to know that there are still such racists living amongst us. Sigh.
    I bet the fool and idiot known as Stupidrednecks believes that any “brotha” is better than Peyton Manning, Drew Brees and Tom Brady.
    See, the Vick defenders don’t defend Vick per se…just a skin tone.
    That is afterall, how OJ got away with murder!

    @StupidRednecks
    I sure hope you’re right about a brotha starting at QB for Philly by week 3. Because that means their best QB [Kolb] is out with an injury and if that’s the case…….
    With the 4th pick in the 2011 draft, the Eagles select……

  25. RyanT. says: Jul 7, 2010 3:45 PM

    Kevin Kolb is going to silence all of the doubters and lead the Eagles to a 13-3 season.
    Doubt me now but you will bow down to my wisdom by January.
    Troy Smith is a serviceable backup who will keep his mouth shut and his nose clean.
    Unlike Michael Vick, who is an overpaid drama queen.

  26. hotchick says: Jul 7, 2010 3:47 PM

    So few understand that Troy Smith fell to #3 in Baltimore for a reason.
    Is Smith doing private work outs for the commentors here who love his skills? Or is he current MVP of your church team? Trying to figure out how you can judge his ability based on his NFL action. Are these same people saying you can’t judge Kolb on his two starts?

  27. rollinyou says: Jul 7, 2010 3:49 PM

    why would anyone want to take any member of the Ravens…you know they will suck.
    RAVENS BLOW!

  28. Meat Tuperello says: Jul 7, 2010 3:49 PM

    While Troy Smith has zero chance to start for Philadelphia, he would be a better back up choice.
    As a Colts fan we used to have to deal with a similar fool as Stupidrednecks.
    The socalled fans name was bleedcoltsblue, and the dumb ass wanted Vick and Culpepper or insert name of black qb here, over Manning. Wonder why? It certainly didn’t have one damn thing to do with talent. Well, h e didn’t last long and was banned from numerous Colts site for spewing his racial hatred and dumbassery.
    I guess some are just born with it.

    Jon,
    For a guy who claims he just defends commonsense and the rule of law, you sure got touchy about being a knee jerk Vick defender.
    Now, if you aren’t a knee jerk Vick defender, than why did you feel the need to defend yourself?
    I never named you in my post, and my post was specifically directed at Stupidrednecks aka BlondBlue Devil.

  35. bigrig says: Jul 7, 2010 4:26 PM

    Do the Eagles really think they can get anything for Vick at this point?
    It’s all on film. The burst is gone. The loopy windup producing barely 50% completion rate. Any team willing to take on all that baggage for a guy 3 years removed from his prime is extremely desperate.

  36. RyanT. says: Jul 7, 2010 4:38 PM

    The Eagles can’t get squat for Vick!
    Not even a 7th round pick.
    If the Eagles cut Vick, I doubt he’ll find another job in the NFL in 2010.
    Unless some team has a rash of QB injuries, and needs him, Vick would be bound for the UFL without the good graces of Andy Reid.

  37. Arizona Buckeye says: Jul 7, 2010 4:40 PM

    I would hate to see Troy Smith go to Philly – christ, they are never satisfied with anything or anybody. The kid doesn’t stand a chance. He is a decent talent and would not be a bad starter given the right situation – and that isn’t Philly.

  38. Laxer37 says: Jul 7, 2010 4:49 PM

    We all saw what Kolb did against the Ravens when McNabb was benched (for 1 half).
    The rest of the league is a little bit better than the Chiefs and that soft Saints defense that faced the Eagles last season.
    By the way – what was the final score vs the Saints, you know the 1 of 2 300 yard games Kolb has on his hall of fame resume :)

    @habib – you really are a moron. I thought you were a bengals fan. Maybe you have a man-crush on Troy Smith since he was QB at OSU.
    Troy Smith is a turd. He acts like he has won a SB when he has never done anything in the NFL. He is inaccurate as a QB. Strong arm but no touch.
    Most of the team thinks he is an asshole. He has about 2 or 3 friends on the team per insider sites in Bmore.
    As an Eagle fan as well as a Ravens fan, I have mixed emotions. I would love to get a bucket of balls for Troy Smith. He is worthless. I think the Eagles would be making a mistake, because frankly the guy sucks.

  45. Cmoney20 says: Jul 7, 2010 5:10 PM

    Another Black QB update, this time we got two for the price of one. What a bargain. Everyone realizes black QB’s make up less than 10% of NFL QBS yet they make up 90% of the articles on here. The only white guy they treat like a african american QB on proffotballtalk.com is Matt Lienart and ive yet to crack the code on why. But i will.

  46. Meat Tuperello says: Jul 7, 2010 5:16 PM

    A funny thing happened when nappybloodshotcrackhead wanted to attempt to bash Kevin Kolb for being 1-1 in 300 yard passing games.
    He was made to look foolish again.
    Kolb is 1-1 in 300 yard games.
    Vick is 1-1 in 300 yard games.
    With that said, Kolb has 2 starts and 10 games played. Vick has 68 starts and 86 games played.
    Do you actually enjoy being made to look stupid?

  48. Barry Bonds HoF says: Jul 7, 2010 5:17 PM

    All of the Troy Smith fangirls forget that he was a late 5th round draft pick despite winning the Heismann and the Ravens drafted another QB in the first round for a reason. They were not high on Troy Smith.

  49. Mooch says: Jul 7, 2010 5:19 PM

    A brotha made the highest contract – end of story :)

  51. steelerhypocrite says: Jul 7, 2010 5:39 PM

    Not the worst move the Eagles could make. That would be letting McNabb go to the Redskins. Second, would be to bring back that fat ass coach and his stupid play calling – “Let’s keep passing the ball all game…I’m so smart, and if you don’t belive me I will eat you”. Third has yet to happen, but it will be stupid – I’m sure of that.

  52. fallcoon says: Jul 7, 2010 5:47 PM

    If Favre comes back this year, I think the Eagles will go after Sage Rosenfels. Sage fell below Joe Webb in the rotation and the offenses are very similar.

  53. Arizona Buckeye says: Jul 7, 2010 5:49 PM

    Steroid boy – Troy was about to get the starting nod until he got an intestinal flu prior to the season open – Joey F got hot and never gave up the starting job again. Not a seer so don’t have a clue if how he would fared as the starting QB. As a Buckeye fan, I loved Troy Smith’s era for he accomplished a great deal. He overcame a nasty childhood that was very well headed down the same path of Machine Gun Mo Clarett, he won the Heisman, and beat Michigan every time he started against them!!! He was a great college QB at tOSU. Having said that – being a successful QB in college doesn’t mean dick in the NFL. I wish him well and hope he is successful wherever he lands!!!!

  54. golongboyee says: Jul 7, 2010 5:54 PM

    LOL……..Getting Troy Smith and cutting Michael Vick is like……selling your Hyandai and getting a Hugo when you really want a BMW!
    But, at least all three can start which is something you cannot say for Smith!!!!!!!

    I love the guy who says all the Ravens players are trash. He must be a Steelers fan! Then again I would rather have players who play like trash ( which the Ravens do not have many of ) then have a team with trashy players who play ok…. Chew on that one ;)
    I like Troy Smith ( not smiff ) But in the few opportunities he had here to play he did not lite the world on fire, he did not have good pre-season games and frankly he just did not impress any knoledgeable fans. The only people who are impressed by him ( white or black ) are those who remember what he did in college and think that translates into the Pro game. It does not and I think the Ravens took a risk in drafting him hoping to find lightning in a bottle and failed to do so.
    Who ever it was who said that the players in the locker room hate him has NO idea what they are talking about. He is a good locker room guy. Until a few months ago he did not express his frustration from lack of starts, he was not a cancer, has not been in the media and most of the guys in the locker room are friends of his and have said so publicly.
    I do not think he will be a good “starter” in the NFL, I would like to be proved wrong because I like the guy. If the Eagles want to get him to clean up the image a little he is a perfect fit and I think he can help them win some games if needed!

    You can have the irrelevant, invented by Dr. James Naismith, game of basketball. Nobody cares.
    And yes, we all know that our favorite sport is mostly black. I don’t have a problem with that. I want to see the best athletes I can. Their skin color doesn’t matter to me.
    But you, on the other hand, only seem interested in the color of the player’s skin. I believe they call that being racist. And as you have proven time after time, that door swings in both directions. Guys like you, filled with hate, are detrimental to your own race.

    If the Eagles need another qb, they should call Shanahan to see if McNabb is available yet.

    I have to disagree with the Troy fan whining about how he won’t get a chance in Philly.
    First off, he didn’t get a chance in Baltimore.
    Secondly, this town LOVES effort guys that give it all and live and die every game. Without affectation. That is why the Lindros’ and McNabbs’ of the world don’t make the connection of guys like…
    Eric Snow
    Greg Garrity
    Jason Avant
    Aaron McKie
    Jeff Garcia
    Chad Lewis
    Carlos Ruiz
    Jim Eisenreich
    JAMIE MOYER
    Andrew Toney
    And that doesn’t mean these guys lacked talent – because for my money Toney gets the nod over Iverson on the All-Time 76ers team (and I am a shameless AI apologist!). It’s the way they carry it and conduct their business.
    In Philly, Boston, and NY, a guy like that can become an icon among the local fan base…and live on forever. Not saying it doesn’t happen in other cities, but the fans like that kind of working-class player here.

    ——————————————————-
    See, that is where you are wrong, NO ONE cares if the starting QB is a “brotha”.
    Mc Nabb was a great QB for the Eagles. Randall Cunningham (a QB that MV couldn’t carry his jock), was another great player & loved in Philly also, even after following Jaworski who Philly fans cannonized. Rodney Peete didn’t have a problem in Philly because he was black, he just sucked.
    It’s not about race although it is a waste of time reiterating this to you, YOU want it to be about race. If Kolb goes down, Eagle fans will be thrilled with Troy Smith. Just not an evil, no good ghoulish serial animal torturer & killer, that did it all for kicks.

    Yeah, so you guys still laughing about Couch’s concussion and Derek Anderson’s blown out knee? When Browns fans aren’t sniveling for the team to draft Buckeyes or pimping their precious “local boys”, all they do is rip they’re own players. Braylon Edwards is an ass, but he’s right about Browns fans, as was DA. Troy Smith is nothing but a backup. Buckeye/Browns fans, quit being hypocrites and ripping other fan bases. By far, you’re the most miserable fan base in the league. Now go back to whining for Kosar to be your GM.

  68. MVPnis says: Jul 7, 2010 9:04 PM

    Its amazing the Vick is not a starter in the NFL. Looking at is winning record and TOTAL stats his last year as a starter, its amazing he’s not taking every snap form center. Those that disagree are just fantasy nerds that don’t watch the game, just the highlights.
    He’s an Amazing player but a complete Knucklehead off the field. Sad.

  69. ppdoc13 says: Jul 7, 2010 9:37 PM

    @danwhitmer – I said that Troy Smith was not liked in the locker room and unlike you, I do know what I am talking about. I listen to sports radio and belong to at least 2 raven insider websites. Troys only real friends on the team are Jared Gaither and Antwan Barnes. Most of the players on the team find him to be a self promoter and are tired of his antics. His comments about crawling to Cleveland to play were not well received by his teammates. The front office thinks he is a jerkoff and most of his teammates agree. He is the only 5th round pick on the team that managed to talk his way into a radio show which is a joke.
    Bottom line is that Troy Smith is a self centered jerkoff. Now maybe Aaron Wilson, Drew Forrestor, Jeremy Conn, Jamison Henesly Nestor, Damon and the others are all lying and don’t know what they are talking about. Or maybe you don’t know what they are talking about. Frankly, I’d put my money on them.
    I’d offer to drive Troy to Philly but I’m sure all of his friends on the team will chip in to buy him a Grayhound bus ticket.

    @danwhitmer – I said that Troy Smith was not liked in the locker room and unlike you, I do know what I am talking about. I listen to sports radio and belong to at least 2 raven insider websites. Troys only real friends on the team are Jared Gaither and Antwan Barnes.
    Then it should be a simple matter for the Ravens to release him if he is disliked so much. I hope the rumor is true for Troy’s sake. Troy will not have an opportunity to play for the Ravens especially since Mark Bulger is on the team. Actually, Mark Bulger is insurance for the Ravens in case Joe Flacco has problems this season.
    GO STEELERS!

    “By Jiminey…………. .. Looks like all of PFT’s hard work is paying off!!!!”
    So you’re saying that Florio dictates the 0-3gles personnel moves?
    ” Somebody…….. git a rope”
    Or better yet, a front office with a clue.

    @ppdoc13
    You made that BS up about the Ravens team not liking Troy Smith. I’m all over the Ravens pages and all I ever heard was good things about him coming from his teammates in BMore. Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs were very public about their support for Troy Smith as the starter and how he was not supposed to loose his job to a so-called injury 2 seasons ago.
    There is a recent article on Baltimoreravens.com about who is the most talented player on the squad and several of the players say Troy Smith.
    With that said I think Troy Smith would be a great fit for Arizona Cardinals as they run the same offense as Bmore with a little variance in terminology.
    One last thing I am a former blacf QB myself and I didn’t appreciate the notion that black men couldn’t think well enough to play QB. I never chose to play the position but was always chosen to play the position. However to all posters on here please keep race out of the conversation. We all know there are people who are still on the racist tip. But let our intellect and actions prove the ignorance of those who live life that way.
