Multiple sources, most notably ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio, have confirmed the Seattle Seahawks have been in consistent contact with the Philadelphia Eagles in regards to Quarterbacks Donovan McNabb and Kevin Kolb.
I reported yesterday here that the Seahawks have been linked to Kevin Kolb and at that time nothing was official, but since then , Mr. Sal Pal has certainly added some credibility and a McNabb to boot.
Either quarterback would be an upgrade for the Seahawks, (Kolb for being a long term answer), and certainly almost every Seattle fan would trade Matt Hasselbeck for McNabb in a heartbeat.
The thought of McNabb in Seahawks blue at least has this 12th Man excited to say the least!
What if the sudden interest in McNabb/Kolb is in regards to the possibility of dealing Matt Hasselbeck to the Denver Broncos? The interest in Brandon Marshall is well documented and he would be an upgrade over Kyle Orton. This would allow the Seahawks to do something along the lines of package revolving around a fourth round pick and Matt Hasselbeck in exchange for Brandon Marshall. They could then deal their second round pick to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for McNabb.
Stay tuned as I will update this post as more information is released.
