In the latest of news, it is rumored that QB Jeff Garcia could potentially once again be a Philadelphia Eagle.
Sources are telling Fox 29 that the Philadelphia Eagles, Jeff Garcia, and his agent have spoke on multiple occasions during the 2010 offseason in regards to resigning Garcia to the team...again.
Les Bowen of Philly.com reports that if Michael Vick were to be traded in the weeks leading up to the draft that [Jeff] Garcia would be the best option to backup the Eagles' new starting QB Kevin Kolb.
Adam Ranks of NFL.com had this to say on Garcia possibly returning to the Eagles:
"The Eagles are still anxious to deal Vick, and would like to have a veteran to back up new starter Kevin Kolb. Garcia is a logical choice, consider that he played for the Eagles in 2006, and briefly in 2009. Garcia has already been lobbying for a return to Philadelphia "
I'm not sure the Eagles front office is "anxious" to part ways with QB Michael Vick but if another team made an offer they couldn't refuse and they do end up trading him, it is possible for Jeff Garcia to end up back in Philadelphia.
I think if anything the Eagles will keep Michael Vick and possibly sign Jeff Garcia giving the Eagles two former pro bowl quarterbacks to back up starting QB Kevin Kolb.
Jeff, as every Eagle fan knows, would again bring a ton of football knowledge and experience to the Eagles as he did in the 2006 season taking the Eagles into the postseason after Donovan McNabb suffered an injury during the season's first meeting with the (none other) Washington Redskins.
Stay tuned to this one Philly faithful, it is sure to re-spark the QB trade rumors in the Eagles organization for the second time in one offseason!
