Eagles Aiming High On McNabb

This from PFT:

Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that the Philadelphia Eagles were contacted before the trade deadline regarding the availability of quarterback Donovan McNabb.

And the requested price was not one, not two, but three first-round draft picks.

Whether the price remains that high after the 2007 season remains to be seen.  If it is, McNabb won't be traded.

Initially this is asinine, because you will make some teams, who aren't interested in playing games, lose interest completely.  I understand the need to make it appear you want to keep him, to give yourself the leverage, but this is insane.  Now that the Eagles have gotten good play from their backup and have their franchise QB waiting in the wings, they look to be losing all that leverage.
