King: Eagles will move a QB

Posted by Chris Brown on March 15, 2010 – 1:09 pm

SI.com’s Peter King is shocked no NFL team in need of a proven QB hasn’t worked harder to make a deal for Donovan McNabb happen.

In his Monday Morning QB column, he lays out several reasons why teams in need of a proven signal caller should take the bird in the hand, so to speak (no pun intended).

He also made a good point in noting that at last week’s Fordham pro day, where QB prospect John Skelton performed that the Eagles had their QBs coach and offensive coordinator at the pro day, somewhat unusual for a projected late round QB. Here’s the excerpt from his MMQB column.

I think one of the quarterbacks is going. Where, I don’t know. When, I don’t know. But one last note about the Eagles and quarterbacks: Fordham University, not exactly a football hotbed, had its pro day for NFL coaches and scouts Friday in the Bronx. Fordham has a late-round quarterback prospect, John Skelton. The Eagles were at the workout with not one coach but two — quarterback coach James Urban and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. Maybe it means nothing, but it’s pretty rare for two coaches to be looking at a late-round quarterback — especially when you’re as packed at quarterback as the Eagles are. Unless, of course, you’re planning to jettison one of your quarterbacks before the draft.

King mentioned Buffalo among a handful of teams for which he believes a trade for McNabb is worthwhile. The others were Seattle, Cleveland, Oakland, Jacksonville.
