League sources told me that several teams are actively pursuing Eagles QB Donovan McNabb. A source with knowledge of the situation said McNabb was being pursued by “some teams that would surprise you, and some you would expect.”
There is a strong expectation in the NFL and agent community that a deal could be completed in the near future, given the level of interest, and McNabb is by far the most likely Eagles QB to be dealt.
A report of the Rams being in the mix is untrue, according to two sources with knowledge of the situation. Rams GM Billy Devaney later went on record to say that the report was “utterly ridiculous.”
League sources indicated Oakland, Buffalo and Arizona as suitors for McNabb’s services. Several executives on other clubs pointed to the Raiders as the team in heaviest pursuit.
McNabb has one year left on his deal, and any team acquiring him likely would want to sign him to an extension, but to some, it might not be imperative. McNabb has an offseason home in Arizona, while Oakland and Buffalo wouldn’t be as attractive to him, according to sources close to the player.
