During a Tuesday appearance with Mike Missanelli of 97.5 The Fanatic in Philly, ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio dropped a couple of bombs regarding the current quarterback situation in Philly.
Paolantonio said that the Seattle Seahawks have been contacting the Eagles “non-stop” regarding quarterbacks Donovan McNabb and Kevin Kolb. As we reported last week, the Eagles have been hearing from multiple teams regarding McNabb, but the Eagles have not yet entertained any offers.
But offers apparently will come; Paolantonio says that Seattle coach Pete Carroll wants to win right away, and in Carroll’s mind that includes getting McNabb or Kolb. And Paolantonio says that he now firmly believes that McNabb will be traded by the Eagles at some point in the offseason.
Meanwhile, Paolantonio also said that the well has gone dry on Mike Vick, and that no one is interested in trading for him. “St. Louis has dried up,” Paolantonio said. “Buffalo, dried up.”
It appears, then, that the Eagles are banking on something occurring later in the year to create a market for Vick. Possibilities include a starting quarterback struggling in offseason drills, a torn ACL injury during red-jersey practices or the preseason, or the decision of a 40-year-old quarterback who runs a very similar offense not to return for another season come August.
