Banks: Eagles "Love" Kolb And Likely Won't Trade Him

Even though Valentine's Day is around the corner, you rarely associate the words love and football.

But Sports Illustrated's Don Banks has done just that in his description of the Eagles and quarterback Kevin Kolb.

In the daily debate regarding the Eagles quarterback situation, Banks stated that "the Eagles love Kevin Kolb and won't trade him unless somebody blows their doors off" in his look at the burning questions for each NFC team.

"The Eagles reportedly are already listening to teams interested in (Donovan) McNabb (Denver, Cleveland and Buffalo), and there's a chance Brad Childress and the Vikings might even give up a first-round pick (No. 30) for him if Brett Favre retires (again). More likely, the Eagles would have to settle for second- and fourth-round picks. I also expect Philly to shop (Michael) Vick for a mid-round pick, and St. Louis still makes the most logical destination," Banks wrote.

Note that the Denver Post refuted ESPN's Sal Paolantonio's report that the Broncos have had discussions with the Eagles )regarding McNabb.

Banks also touched on Brian Westbrook, who said in a recent radio interview that he's getting ready for the 2010 season. Banks writes that it may take "a big pay cut" for Westbrook to return in midnight green.

"And another thing: Given his health issues, his $7.5 million salary, and the emergence of LeSean McCoy, Brian Westbrook's chances of being in green and white again next season aren't good," Banks wrote. "Is retirement, a big pay cut or an outright release in the offing for Westbrook?"
