Donovan McNabb said on Thursday that teammate Michael Vick deserves the chance to go to a team where he can be a starter.
Could that team be the St. Louis Rams?
Bernie Miklasz of the *St. Louis Post-Dispatch *reported that the Rams assistants have reached out to their Eagles counterparts. The article did not explain what the conversations were about. Remember that head coach Steve Spagnuolo and offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur were former Eagles assistants under Andy Reid.
Spagnuolo was asked specifically about his team's quarterback position at the Super Bowl and had this to say about Vick.
"I've got a lot of respect for Michael as a player," Spagnuolo told the* St. Louis Post-Dispatch*. "Everything I've heard out of Philadelphia is kind of good. We haven't gone down that road in our process yet. I think he's a terrific player."
The Rams currently have Marc Bulger, Kyle Boller and Keith Null at quarterback. All three were pressed into action last season, which ended with a 1-15 record in Spagnuolo's first year as head coach. The Rams have the top pick in the NFL Draft and certainly could use that to address the quarterback position, although the consensus top player is Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.
When asked if there's a deadline for figuring out who would be the Rams quarterback in 2010, Spagnuolo said there wasn't one, but "that may direct itself depending on things that happen. And we know what we're all talking about."
