Reid admits Eagles listening to offers for QBs

New, comments

Throughout this offseason, Andy Reid has maintained his stance of being happy with having all three QBs on the roster in 2010 and that Donovan McNabb will be the starter. Not many of us actually believed him... but he's maintained the stance nonetheless.

Until now.

Speaking to the media at the NFL owners meetings, Reid admitted that the Eagles are listening to offers for their QBs.

``I’m listening (to offers) out there,’’ Reid said at the NFC coaches media breakfast. ``I’m not saying I’m doing anything. But we’re keeping our ears open. We’re evaluating, taking in the situation right now,’’ Reid said. ``I don’t worry about (what other people are saying). It’s an evaluation process right now. We’re kind of gathering everything up and we’ll take it back to Philadelphia and see where we’re at.’’

Not a shocking admission by any means, because obviously the Eagles would listen to offers but it is noteworthy that Andy openly discussed it. He was asked whether any of the offers piqued his interest?

We’ll go back and look through those and think through them a little bit, away from this situation here. There’s (no offer) right now that I’d jump up and down about. But there has been some interest.

He said that there was interest in all three QBs. He also re-iterated that McNabb is the starter, but refused to commit to McNabb as the starter next year when pressed by reporters. He specifically "Today he is our starting quarterback, yes."

He also said that had gotten a few inquiries about Sheldon Brown.
