Report: Trade Talks May Go Until Draft

ESPN's Sal Paolantonio cites a "senior team official" in his latest report stating that the Eagles "are continuing trade discussions with a number of teams about trading Donovan McNabb and those discussions could continue until draft day."

And despite what Paolantonio's colleague Adam Schefter reported on Monday there is no "front-runner" to land McNabb or any of the Eagles quarterbacks.

"There is no so-called frontrunner," the senior team official said. "We continue to engage in conversations with multiple teams that initially contacted us. Some of the offers involve draft picks, some involve a player, some involve many players. We are evaluating the offers. But if some team had totally blown us away, we would probably have made a deal already."

According to Paolantonio, the Eagles are still receiving offers for backup Kevin Kolb. And as for the Associated Press report last week that it would take a top-42 pick to get the deal done, the senior team official said, "That's not true."
