ESPN's Sal Paolantonio said during a radio interview with 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia that the Seattle Seahawks have called the Eagles "non-stop" regarding the availability of either Donovan McNabb or Kevin Kolb in a trade.
The reason, Paolantonio stated, is that new head coach Pete Carroll wants to win immediately. The Seahawks were 5-11 in 2009.
Well, Comcast SportsNet in Philadelphia has taken a little bit of the edge off of that report.
CSN is reporting that the Seahawks have inquired about Kolb, not McNabb. The Eagles had no comment regarding either report.
A source told CSN that acquiring McNabb "would leave the Seahawks in the same position they're in with veteran Matt Hasselbeck." McNabb will turn 34 this season and Hasselbeck will be 35 years old. Seeing how Vikings quarterback Brett Favre and former Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner can play at a high level into their late 30s, that wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing. McNabb and Hasselbeck are both, however, scheduled to become free agents after the 2010 season.
