There's no way in the world that Jeffery Lurie would trade him to the Cards, even though that would clearly be the best spot for him to land.

Re: Rumor: Eagles and Rams Finalizing Trade Involving McNabb

i actually think the eagles really want to keep vick.... assuming they move mcnabb. they could potentially run into trouble with all three on the roster. kolb is their future. vick is a great backup/wildcat guy. mcnabb is simply more expensive than he's worth to them since they have those guys. its the ideal time for them to move him. they'll definitely get at least what the rams were allegedly offering.

Agreed, McNabb is the odd man out with the trio of QBs.

Re: Rumor: Eagles and Rams Finalizing Trade Involving McNabb

I really think this is no deal.

St. Louis Rams shoot down Donovan McNann trade rumors - NFL - SI.com

Kind of sad about it, would have dropped Bradford to us.

Although, St. Louis with the right adjustment could be a good place. The Rams have a young offensive line that has had a year to grow up and they should have Jason Smith back healthy. They have a great running game, which the Eagles seemed to lack from time to time. The only issues outside of that would be if they can get some receivers in the draft and whatever is left of free agency, and if their defense can somewhat hold up.

Re: Rumor: Eagles and Rams Finalizing Trade Involving McNabb

Don't believe any of these "shot down trade rumors" this could be a draft day deal, and cause other teams to want the first pick/think they're getting bradford. the rams are going to reveal there hand yet as to what they're doing.

I am certainly hoping that the Rams will have someone signed before the first day of the draft, I don't know if that helps or hurts the Redskins cause, I just like to have that first pick out of the way.

"Strategery"

I agree that it would be a close-to-draft-day deal. The Rams are currently talking contract with Suh, McCoy, Bradford and possibly Clausen. If the Rams want McNabb, then it means they plan to take Suh or McCoy with the first overall pick. Executing (or even acknowledging) the trade now would limit the teams leverage in getting the cheapest possible deal from Suh or McCoy.

On the flip-side, if the Rams really want Bradford, then leaking rumors about the potential trade and then publically denying it puts pressure on Bradford to sign a below-market deal, since if the Rams dont take him, the first chance for him to get drafted would be #4 to the Redskins. If the Redskins passed on him, barring a trade, he would fall to the Browns at 7 or potentially the Bills at 9. Last year, Matthew Stafford got about 42MM garaunteed with the potential to earn 78MM over 6 years. Mark Sanchez got selected 4 spots later. His contract: 28MM garaunteed. If Bradford doesn't sign with the Rams, he's going to lose atleast 10MM. With the rumors circulating that the Rams might be interested in McNabb, its in his best (financial) interest to make a sweetheart deal with the Rams to ensure he's the #1 overall pick.

A one word synopsis of everything I just said: "Strategery."

A couple of months ago the McNabb to Vikes rumors were really, really, really strong. But they've since died down

Re: Rumor: Eagles and Rams Finalizing Trade Involving McNabb

There's always the chance that talks were strong but the extension couldn't be worked out. Who knows.. certainly looks like he'll be on the move. Minny would've been good but with the whole Favre thing I wouldn't do it if I were him/his agent.

I think they strongly expect Farve to come back. It will take a horrible year or a Super Bowl Victory for Farve to retire at this point and I believe the confidence in Farve coming back is part of the reason they're so calm about everything right now like "yeah take as much time as you need Brett." If they felt he was going to retire I would expect the tone to be different.

Re: Rumor: Eagles and Rams Finalizing Trade Involving McNabb

I just heard Adam Shefter say the Rams have no interest in McNabb. He said they had expressed interest in Kolb, as had a lot of other teams.
