They say where there’s smoke, there’s a fire, and I think Smokey the Bear was awakened from his hibernation for this one.
I’ll assume that he won’t net the Eagles a first-round pick, mainly because of his age and contract demands. You’re looking at picks 33-42.
33. St. Louis Rams
If they opt to go with Ndamukong Suh with the No. 1 overall, I can see this scenario. McNabb wouldn’t be happy going to a losing team with limited weapons though.
34. Detroit Lions
Obviously they aren’t interested, but they could possibly work a three-way deal.
Ditto. Considering Scott Pioli’s penchant for trading down, this wouldn’t surprise me.
I’m not sure Mike Shanahan would want an aging vet. However, it would give them an upgrade at QB, and they could use their first pick to add an offensive lineman.
38. Cleveland Browns
Maybe, but McNabb would not be happy there.
39. Oakland Raiders
Now we’re talking. Of course, McNabb wouldn’t be happy there either.
Only if it’s a three-way deal.
41. Buffalo Bills
I’m sure they are interested. I just don’t know if they can pull off a deal financially. Plus, McNabb would not be happy there.
42. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
A second chance for Tampa to make a three-way deal.
He’d be an upgrade for Carolina, but I don’t think they would want to take him on fiscally.
If Arizona truly feels Matt Leinart is a lost cause, they could enter into the picture. Their second-round pick is No. 58, so they would have to work a three-way deal or add to the package to get McNabb.
Seattle has two first-round picks and the 60th pick. They have the pieces in place to make a run at McNabb. They’d have to either add to that 60th pick or trade down. Maybe their 14th pick could net them Tampa Bay’s two second-round picks, one of which they could send to Philly for Donovan.
Despite his immense talent, the options are limited for Donovan and the Eagles, which is why they lowered their demands.
