Eagles Telling Teams McNabb, Kolb Unavailable for Trade

With a clump of important needs on their roster, it's quite a surprise there has been this much talk regarding the Eagles' Quarterback situation. Then again, when all 3 of your passers have arguably starting capabilities, there's going to be a lot of speculation and rumors as to who might be interested in them. Another piece to the QB puzzle in Philadelphia was added when several reports indicated that the Eagles are telling teams that Donovan McNabb and Kevin Kolb (pictured) are unavailable for trade.

While Michael Vick, the third of the bunch, remains a hot topic in trade talks, McNabb and Kolb are considered to be the jackpot members of the Quarterback group in Philly, and most would like to acquire either of them. Previously, it was confirmed that a trio of clubs had contacted the Birds in hopes of working out a deal; those teams were listed as being the Broncos, Browns, and Bills. Since that was learned, whispers have surfaced from the Denver organization claiming that they have no interest in McNabb. However, the primary new piece of information comes in the fact that the Eagles are reportedly telling other franchises that they will not be shipping McNabb or Kolb away in a trade.

Perhaps this will finally get people to believe what head coach Andy Reid said at the conclusion of the season--Donovan McNabb will be the starting QB in the 2010 season. Nevertheless, there has been a ton of speculation and talk about the Eagles' Quarterbacks, when  really that position is the least of their worries.

Some have a strong belief that the Eagles telling teams that McNabb and Kolb are unavailable means only that they would like something large in return, most notably a 1st-round pick in this April's Draft. However, none of these reports, beliefs, or suggestions can be truly trusted unless confirmed by the team. Other than that, all we can continue to do is wait and see how the plan for the Quarterback situation unfolds.
