Report: Eagles to pay Vick's bonus; Looking for a 1st for Mcnabb

Citing "multiple league sources," Geoff Mosher of the Delaware News Journal reports that the Eagles fully intend to pay Michael Vick's $1.5 roster bonus, due March 5, and trade him thereafter. The thinking is, $1.5 million is worth it if the Eagles can get a mid-round draft choice in exchange for Vick. Mosher indicates that Philadelphia is targeting a third- or fourth-round pick as compensation. The odds of getting a third- or fourth-rounder for Vick seem long, but time will tell whether this is a smart decision. It's possible that a team like Buffalo will emerge from the draft without a quarterback of the future or present. Vick, 29, may be viewed as a better stopgap solution with more long-term potential than Ryan Fitzpatrick or Trent Edwards, convincing 91-year-old owner Ralph Wilson that Vick is worth a valuable pick in the 2011 draft. More from Mosher: The Eagles are expected to "prioritize business over football" with regard to their quarterback situation. So they're willing to trade starting quarterback Donovan McNabb if a team meets their asking price, believed to be at least a first-round pick.
