Could McNabb or Kolb be traded?

After the 34-14 first-round playoff loss to the Dallas Cowboys, coach Andy Reid and team president Joe Banner will have to seriously discuss whether the Eagles' best chance to win an elusive Super Bowl rides with the aging arm and legs of Donovan McNabb or the still unproven Kevin Kolb, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Reid might be more comfortable with McNabb, but there are recent examples of first-year starters taking their teams to a Super Bowl title. Kurt Warner did it in St. Louis in 1999, and Tom Brady did it two years later with New England.

McNabb and Kolb have one year left on their respective contracts. It's possible one of them will be traded in order to fill other glaring needs, particularly on defense.

The Eagles' other big offensive decision is running back Brian Westbrook, who had just one catch and no carries Saturday night. Two concussions and eight missed games left Westbrook with his least productive season since his rookie year.

If Westbrook returns, he'll be paid $7.25 million next season.

Broncos' Marshall seeks pay boost

According to the Denver Post, Brandon Marshall's agent, Kennard McGuire, sought out Broncos management to get a feel for the team's position on giving Marshall a contract extension.

This came on the first business day after Marshall was exonerated of battery charges following a trial Friday in Atlanta.

The Broncos told McGuire that at this time they were not willing to rework the wide receiver's deal, which has one year and $2.2 million remaining. Marshall then reiterated his trade demand that he first issued in June.
