If you’re the 49ers, would you call up the Eagles in March and check to see if you can pry loose Donovan McNabb for a 2010 second-round pick? No way I’d give up either of their No. 1s, but for a No. 2… Worth a thought, if Philly’s interested.
The Eagles have Kevin Kolb and Michael Vick, both free agents in a year (if they keep Vick). McNabb’s contract is also up after a year, so he’d need a large extension to go with any trade, which lessens his trade value dramatically.
Despite the strong talk from Philly that McNabb definitely will be the QB next season, I dunno about that. And by going after Kurt Warner last year, the 49ers have proven that they think they might be one big-time QB away from making some postseason noise. They might be right.
Interesting comparison to 49ers’ pursuit of Warner. Otherwise just speculation.
