Feeley, Brown, Baskett In Demand as Preseason Cuts Begin

Earlier today, NFL Network's Jason La Canfora reported that several teams have expressed interest in acquiring A.J. Feeley. Formerly our third-string quarterback, Feeley's status took a hit when the Eagles signed Michael Vick to help the young Kevin Kolb back up Donovan McNabb. Now with it looking unlikely that Philadelphia will carry four quarterbacks on their roster for the entire season, other teams have started to inquire about the 32-year-old veteran.

"The Patriots are among the many teams to express an interest in Philadelphia's A.J. Feeley. Some execs believe New England is where Feeley will end up, but, according to a source, the Eagles do not plan on parting with Feeley until they know how long Michael Vick will have to sit out. The wait for Vick to be reinstated could range from one to six games, and Feeley is the only other experienced backup on the team, with Kevin Kolb still unproven and largely untested in the regular season. St. Louis could also be a potential landing spot for Feeley."

The Patriots move makes sense after their release of backup QB Kevin O'Connell earlier this afternoon. New England and Philadelphia have also been known to make multiple dealings with each other in the past, the most recent of which being the Eagles' acquisition of Ellis Hobbs and and Patriots' acquisition of Greg Lewis during the 2009 offseason.

In addition, rumors have been heating up regarding the New York Jets' pursuit of receivers Reggie Brown and Hank Baskett. This years' draft blessed the Eagles with two talented ball catchers in Jeremy Maclin and Brandon Gibson, both of whom have suddenly made Philadelphia's receiving corps a very deep position. Unfortunately, this potential trade might be less likely since a Jets source was quoted as saying that the team has not been "overly impressed with Reggie Brown," during the preseason and that "the price tag might be too high" for Baskett.

However, as the preseason draws to a close and teams continue whittling down their rosters, more opportunities will certainly become available. Feeley, Brown, and/or Baskett could be used as trade fodder to upgrade the depleted linebacker and tight end positions, or even stockpile additional picks for next year's draft.
