Report: Eagles getting inquiries in 3 quarterbacks
Andy Reid and new Philadelphia Eagles general manager Howie Roseman could have some wheeling and dealing to do.
Adam Schefter reported today his his Twitter account that more than just Donovan McNabb could be in play in an offseason filled with important decisions for the franchise. All three Eagles quarterbacks could be in play.
“Multiple teams have called Eagles to inquire about their three QBs. The conversation, and speculation, will heat up in early March,” Schefter wrote.
McNabb is the one that has received the most attention thus far. He’s slated to enter the final year of his contract and, guess what, he’d like a new deal. Michael Vick has been an upstanding citizen off the field and did enough on the field to pique the interest of more than a few clubs. He might make too much money this season for the Eagles to justify keeping him in strictly a Wildcat role. And then there is Kevin Kolb, the former second-round draft pick, who became the first quarterback in NFL history to pass for more than 300 yards in his first two career starts. That was when Kolb filled in for McNabb while he rested a rib injury.
Kolb has a connection with some of the young wide receivers in DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin and the thinking in some circles is that the Eagles will test the market with McNabb and see what he could bring in return and then go young on offense. Certainly, Kolb would have value too. As Schefter sees it, all three could be an option. Stay tuned.
