Donovan McNabb is at it again. If you haven't already heard, the Eagles apparently (remember this is all rumor) had a meeting with their franchise quarterback. In that meeting, the organization and McNabb were supposed to work out a contract extension. McNabb still has two years on his current deal. Donovan apparently told the Eagles that they need to obtain more "weapons" for McNabb to sign with them.
By weapons, one would assume McNabb means T.J. Housmandzadeh, Anquan Boldin, or Tony Gonzalez. I don't know what McNabb thinks he is doing by issuing an ultimatum on Eagles management. He acting like they NEED to resign him. He's still got two years on his contract. Why should they do what he says? They have the power over him.
That does not mean I don't want the Eagles to sign a premier offensive weapon. They have enough money under the cap to sign a big name player. Recently, Marvin Harrison has been mentioned as a guy the Eagles should be interested in. They shouldn't sign Harrison. He is no longer a number one receiver. He would be a nice guy to have, but I would like to see somebody with more quality years left in their career.
Meanwhile, the Eagles haven't said anything about what they might or might not do in free agency. The Eagles are always like this. They will keep a poker face up until the point of action. You will not hear anything from them until something definite occurs.
What baffles me the most is that people are surprised by this. Doesn't McNabb do this every offseason? Whether he says it directly, in his blog, or we hear it from his mom, this topic comes up quite a bit with McNabb. He is trying to act like he has a say in what the team does. He doesn't have that power, and even the Eagles are smart enough to know that.
