A former starting quarterback for the Eagles has reached an agreement with a new team. No, not Kevin Kolb — Donovan McNabb, who appears to have a deal in place with the Minnesota Vikings (who spent their first-rounder on Christian Ponder back in April).
Multiple sources are reporting — to the AP, and to ESPN’s Adam Schefter — that Tennessee has reached an agreement with former Seahawks signal caller Matt Hasselbeck, but no numbers have been mentioned as yet, so the early-week rumors of a “big offer” are as yet unconfirmed. It’s likely at least a two-year deal. The chances of the Titans’ being able to trade Vince Young — even for a seventh rounder — are now close to zero.
Former Chiefs and Dolphins QB Tyler Thigpen has reportedly signed with the Buffalo Bills. Ryan Fitzpatrick’s starting role is probably safe in the near term, and if Thigpen can’t supplant the incumbent, the Bills can always line him up outside across from Stevie Johnson.
The Arizona Cardinals are in dire need of a veteran signal-caller. Will it be Kevin Kolb from the Eagles or Kyle Orton from the Broncos?
The Dolphins, too, are sniffing around Kyle Orton in a possible bid to reunite him with WR Brandon Marshall. With Thigpen gone, the Fins are down to incumbent starter Chad “The Robot” Henne and journeyman Patrick Ramsey at the qube spot.
The Niners are out of the market for a veteran to school first-round pick Colin Kaepernick: the Niners resigned themselves to re-signing Alex “Don’t Call Me Jamarcus” Smith.
McNabb’s departure from Washington leaves Bears castoff Rex Grossman and Dolphins castoff John Beck under center for the Skins. Hail victory!
