Cardinals reportedly not interested in McNabb

No sooner were NFL teams connected to having interest in Donovan McNabb did they start lining up to deny that interest.

When Eagles coach Andy Reid acknowledged Wednesday that the team was listening to offers for McNabb, as well as Kevin Kolb and Michael Vick, the speculation gates opened. NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora jumped into the fray, reporting league sources had listed Oakland, Buffalo and Arizona as suitors for McNabb. Several executives on other clubs pointed to the Raiders as the team in heaviest pursuit.

The Philadelphia Inquirer cited a league source in reporting Wednesday that the Eagles had an offer on the table from the Rams, offering a second-round draft pick (No. 33 overall) and FS Oshiomogho Atogwe to the Eagles for McNabb. That was immediately denied by the Rams, with GM Billy Devaney telling the St. Louis Post-Dispatch the report was “utterly ridiculous.”

Back to Arizona and Oakland. Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reported Thursday that the Cardinals, always mentioned as possible suitors for McNabb because he has an offseason home in the Phoenix area, have no interest at this time. Cardinals GM Rod Graves told Darren Urban on the team’s official website that there was “no interest” in acquiring McNabb.

The Oakland Tribune’s Steve Corkran also checked in, reporting that two Raiders employees were “unaware” of the team contacting the Eagles about McNabb.

With no reports out of San Francisco or Buffalo, that’s the latest chatter on McNabb.
