If the Philadelphia Eagles are thinking about drafting a quarterback in round two or three of the NFL draft, it might behoove them to reconsider that idea. The Eagles are showing a lot of interest in this year’s QB class prospects.  They’ve already been linked to several players such as Kirk Cousins, Ryan Tannehill, Ryan Lindley and Russell Wilson. They were even rumored to be interested in trading up to the No. 2 overall pick in order to snare Robert Griffin III. Would it be worth it to trade up for Tannehill? Photo: nfldraftroundup.wordpress.com When the Eagles show a lot of interest in players of a certain position leading up to the draft, it means there is a good chance they are looking at drafting a player at that position.  For example, prior to the draft last year the position the Eagles were linked to the most was linebacker (pre-draft visits, private workouts, general interest, etc).

Donovan McNabb Return to the Eagles?

Believe it or not, the question was proposed to Eagles head coach Andy Reid at the NFL owners meetings yesterday. Here’s how Reid responded: “I’m surprised by the fact that he didn’t have the success after leaving Philly. I wasn’t there. I’m not sure how that worked.

Titans unwilling to give up a 3rd round pick for Asante Samuel

It looks like the reason the Tennessee Titans aren’t as interested in trading for Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Asante Samuel as people had thought, is because they aren’t willing to give up a third round pick in exchange for him.
