Eagles QB situation still uncertain
Posted on: February 24, 2010 11:15 am
According to the Philadelphia Daily News , the Eagles are publicly putting forth the attitude that QB Donovan McNabb -- scheduled to rake in an estimated $11 million next season -- will remain with the team.
There has been no official indication from the Eagles that they are looking to unload McNabb or his backup QBs, Kevin Kolb or Michael Vick . All three would be in the final year of their contract if they remained with the Eagles for the 2010 season. However, the Eagles also have reportedly confirmed that other teams have inquired about all three QBs.
The story notes that there is a strong chance that Vick (who would make $5 million this year) will be traded before the NFL Draft in April. McNabb remains a question mark as well, but for now, the official stance is that he's staying in Philly.
When asked recently about locker room leadership in the wake of Brian Westbrook's release, head coach Andy Reid acted as though McNabb's status was a given.
"Well, Donovan is obviously here," he replied, according to the Daily News.
