Obviously it's a slow time in the NFL right now with most of the news centering on what's happening in the courts. Of course, this is usually the dead time in the NFL calender, but usually we've also already had things like free agency. Since it hasn't happened, that means the baseless speculation about where certain guys might end up continues.
I caught two connections the Eagles that I got a kick out of this week.
Assuming the Eagles trade Kevin Kolb, they would be in the market for someone to back up Michael Vick. Presumably, an offense constructed for Vick would be a good fit for Young as well. In addition, Andy Reid has a pretty good track record for developing quarterbacks.
Although that's not nearly my favorite reasoning used by John Glennon, who wrote the piece. He also thinks the Raiders could be a good fit for Young. Why is that?
There’s no clear-cut cut quarterback of the future on this roster, Al Davis loves strong-armed QBs, and you’d have to think Jason Campbell might serve as a pretty good mentor for Young.
Campbell is about two years older than Young, has only started a handful more games and hasn't even been as successful. And he's supposed to be a "good mentor?" What kind of analysis is that?
And finally, Plaxico Burress gets out of jail next month and obviously there's speculation about where he could end up. The Sporting News names the Jets as the most likely team to go after Burress, he also lumps in the Eagles amongst those that could be interested as well.
Other teams that may get into the mix are all three of the Giants' NFC East division rivals: Dallas, Philadelphia and Washington.
