With Mike Bell in the fold, attention has quickly shifted back to the Eagles' quarterbacks, a hot topic at the league meetings in Orlando, Fla.
Inquirer NFL columnist Ashley Fox writes that head coach Andy Reid told her Tuesday that the team is "entertaining offers" for all three quarterbacks."
And Reid reiterated that in a breakfast with reporters Wednesday morning at the Orlando Ritz Carlton, adding that they are "listening" to calls from other teams, according to Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer.
"We'll go back and look through those ... away from this situation here," Reid said. "There's nothing right now that I'd jump up and down about. But right now there's interest."
Reid said that the team has placed a value on each quarterback and what it would take to trade each one.
"I'm keeping my ears open," Reid said.
Meanwhile, a trade rumor circulating through the Orlando Ritz Carlton Tuesday had the Eagles sending Donovan McNabb to Buffalo for draft picks. Turns out, there was nothing to it. At least, not at this point.
But suddenly it appears that McNabb is no longer untouchable. In fact, Fox's article goes on to say that there is a market for both McNabb and Kevin Kolb. For Michael Vick, not so much.
The story goes on to say that "the Eagles apparently have lowered their price for either McNabb or Kolb. Once thought to be insistent on a first-round pick, the Eagles now are looking for a 'fair' price - a second-round pick or a combination of high picks, a league source with knowledge of the team's thought process said."
Said Reid: "This is the truth: Our three quarterbacks are Philadelphia Eagles. People are entertaining us with offers. Nothing's been done, but we're evaluating all of them. That's the truth. There's not a lot really going on other than entertaining."
In discussing the team's off-season moves with GM Howie Roseman, McLane reported Tuesday that Roseman said that he anticipated some movement in the next few weeks. Whether that "movement" involves the team's quarterbacks remains to be seen.
