Could Garcia be on the Eagles’ radar?

It’s far too early to know if Michael Vick’s involvement in last weekend’s shooting at his birthday party (Happy 30th, BTW) will lead to anything more than what it currently is.

For now, police haven’t ruled out Vick as a suspect or a person of interest. The NFL and the Eagles are still gathering facts.

But is it too early to think that Andy Reid already has hit speed dial (which also raises a side conversation on just who would be the No. 7 on his phone) to call veteran Jeff Garcia?

It wasn’t that long ago that Garcia said he was open to the idea of mentoring starter Kevin Kolb and revealed he had talked to the team about the possibility. Behind Kolb and Vick, the Eagles have only rookie Mike Kafka on the roster. The Eagles have just 28 days until they open training camp, and Garcia is well versed in Reid’s offense.

As details of the incident emerge, and the league gathers information, it’s worth remembering that commissioner Roger Goodell has established a track record in imposing league penalties, independent of the legal process. Upon Vick’s reinstatement to the league last summer, Goodell said the quarterback’s “margin for error is extremely limited.”

A lot of dots to connect, but if it’s possible that Vick won’t return to the Eagles because of the incident, does Garcia get the call?
