According to this report from CSNPhilly.com, the Seahawks have contacted the Philadelphia Eagles about Kevin Kolb, but not Donovan McNabb.
Here’s an excerpt:
A source in Seattle has informed Comcast SportsNet that the Seahawks have contacted the Eagles about Kevin Kolb, contradicting a report that the team has asked about Donovan McNabb as well.
When asked if the Eagles had anything to add to the report, the team responded “No.”
Asked about the possibility of acquiring McNabb, the Seattle source said it would leave the Seahawks in the same position they’re in with veteran Matt Hasselbeck – but wouldn’t elaborate further.
The Seahawks want to get younger at quarterback, so going after someone like McNabb never made any sense. And the Eagles appear unwilling to give up a young and productive quarterback like Kolb
Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer notes that any team would have to give up a first-round pick to get McNabb or Kolb from Cleveland.
More Cabot: The Seahawks get a seventh-round pick in 2011 in return for sending the Browns Seneca Wallace, and that pick could improve to a sixth rounder based on his performance.
Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com suggests the Seahawks do an end around to secure the services of Brandon Marshall, having the San Diego Chargers sign an offer sheet for the Denver Broncos free agent receiver, and then swapping the No. 14 overall pick with the Chargers for Marshall.
Mike Klis of the Denver Post says the silence in Seattle may mean a deal for Marshall is unlikely.
Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports argues that because of the importance of the quarterback position in the NFL someone will take an early flyer on Florida Quarterback Tim Tebow in April’s draft.
