A PFT reader named Tim Armbruster noted on our new Facebook page around noon that he was troubled by the lack of Donovan McNabb posts around here.
We aim to please, so Florio came up with one since. ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio will now help bring you another.
Sal Pal quotes an Eagles “senior team official” that says that there is no lead horse in the Donovan McNabb sweepstakes.
“There is no so-called front-runner,” the senior team official said. “We
continue to engage in conversations with multiple teams that initially
contacted us. Some of the offers involve draft picks, some involve a
player, some involve many players. We are evaluating the offers. But if
some team had totally blown us away, we would probably have made a deal
The quote is eye-opening for a few reasons. First, it contradicts Adam Schefter’s report that the Raiders are leaders for services.
More noteworthy, the Eagles are aggressively trying to control the story. For the second time in a week, they are openly discussing McNabb’s possible departure.
Paolantonio writes that trade talks could continue until draft day, which is no surprise. The sudden inevitability of McNabb’s departure is more jarring.
Even the team is talking about it now.
