Welcome to Philadelphia, Mr. Mike Bell. Do you know who will hand the ball off to you? Neither do we.
The rumor mill is getting ready to accelerate to full throttle. This is usually the case this time of year.
Who’s making the offers? What will the Eagles get in return? Which Eagles quarterback(s) is most likely to depart?
Nobody will know for sure until an actual deal is officially announced. Having said that, Reid’s comments let us know a trade (or two) is very likely to happen.
While this deal sounds good, it makes no sense for St. Louis to put a deal on the table just yet. The Rams have the No. 1 overall pick in the draft and could select a potential franchise QB in Oklahoma’s Sam Bradford.
Signing A.J. Feeley reminds me of 1999 when the Eagles brought in Doug Pederson to give McNabb time to prepare to take over the helm. It definitely looked like preparation for Bradford to me.
The only way the Rams will deter from Bradford is if they feel his surgically repaired shoulder can't survive in the NFL. After all, drafting a quarterback No. 1 overall is about as huge an investment you can make in sports.
After missing the NFL Combine and Oklahoma’s Pro Day, Bradford will hold an individual workout Monday, March 29, 2010. The Rams obviously will be in attendance.
If the Eagles could obtain the Rams second-rounder and Atogwe, that’s probably the best scenario for a McNabb trade at this point. Because of that, the Eagles brass is probably willing to wait on the Rams intentions.
Bradford’s performance Monday is key not only to the Eagles quarterback situation, but the entire NFL draft.
