The “offseason” is all of three days old and already the rumor mills are spinning in overdrive. And it always seems like the Broncos are in the middle of such things given their recent history of offseason theatrics, including the uber-drama that was the Jay Cutler saga last year.
And now there has been a report or two that the Broncos are one of a handful of teams the Philadelphia Eagles have talked to about a potential landing spot for quarterback Donovan McNabb. The Eagles have postured at least some in recent months that they may eventually be in a position to move on from McNabb’s tenure.
Eagles backup Kevin Kolb has said he believes he’s ready to be a starter and the team’s No. 3, Michael Vick, has said publicly he’s ready to start again.
But folks at the Broncos’ Dove Valley complex have used the phrase “no truth” in the last day or two to describe the McNabb rumblings. So unless they are fibbing McNabb isn’t coming to the Broncos with his giant contract in tow — McNabb carries a $5 million salary cap figure in the upcoming season according to some salary documents and has some bonus money coming as well.
