Jeff Garcia could make a return to the Eagles if the team is able to deal QB Michael Vick, according to the Philadelphia Daily News.
The Eagles are still anxious to deal Vick, and would like to have a veteran to back up new starter Kevin Kolb. Garcia is a logical choice, consider that he played for the Eagles in 2006, and briefly in 2009. Garcia has already been lobbying for a return to Philadelphia.
Other news making its way Around the Web on a Saturday afternoon:
- The Buccaneers are hoping for more out of RB Derrick Ward this season. Coach Raheem Morris told the Tampa Tribune that while they want more production from Ward, they have to give him more opportunities. That will depend on offensive coordinator Greg Olson.
Byron Leftwich is expected to be at the Buccaneers training camp, as Morris wants to bring four quarterbacks to camp. The Buccaneers have only one veteran quarterback on the roster to tutor second-year phenom Josh Freeman.
- The 49ers are “very happy” with WR Josh Morgan starting opposite Michael Crabtree, according to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat. The 49ers envision Morgan being the John Taylor to Crabtree’s Jerry Rice. Well, at least the team is not putting pressure on the young receivers. Maybe mix in a playoff appearance before making such lofty comparisons.
