Right now, the Philadelphia Eagles are clearly in the business of collecting quarterbacks. Until new head coach Chip Kelly knows who his starter is going to be, it's probably safe to assume that none of the quarterbacks on the roster will be dumped. 

That's why despite the fact that Philly has re-signed Michael Vick and signed Dennis Dixon this week, a report from CSN Philly's Reuben Frank states that the team doesn't plan to trade Nick Foles "unless they're blown away by an offer."

USA Today's Mike Garafolo reported on Thursday that the Kansas City Chiefs are interested in trading for Foles, and that makes sense when you consider that new Chiefs head coach Andy Reid drafted the Arizona quarterback in the third round last April. I guess the question now is whether that will be enough to cause the Chiefs to blow the Eagles away.

Trent Edwards is also on the roster, with one year remaining on the two-year contract he signed last offseason.
