In a surprising move (to some), the New England Patriots just waived their backup quarterback, Kevin O'Connell. The guy is nothing special, but O'Connell was projected to be the number two QB for the 2009 season and Tom Brady got his shoulder rocked by the one hundred million dollar man, Albert Haynesworth, the other night.
Why do we Eagles fans care? Well, Philadelphia just so happens to have four quarterbacks on their roster and the birds love making trades with New England. Donovan McNabb and Michael Vick are definitely on the team this year, leaving the futures of Kevin Kolb and A.J. Feeley up in the air.
Now I don't mean to toot my own horn, but I made a post a few weeks ago called What About Kolb. At the end of the post, I made the following statement...
For all we know, we could be trading Kolb away tomorrow for a stud TE, sign Vick as our third string QB, and be on our way to a 13-3 season... or maybe not.
A few days later, Vick signed with the Eagles. Coincidence? Yeah, I guess... but the Eagles could use a little help in certain areas and the Patriots may have a few players that could fill those gaps. So, is a trade on the horizon? You decide.
