Rams deny McNabb trade report

With Andy Reid’s comments earlier today that his quarterbacks are on the marketplace, reports are already beginning to surface about possible trades.

The general manager of the St. Louis Rams is strongly denying a report that the Rams and Eagles are in discussions about Donovan McNabb.

The report says an offer of McNabb in exchange for the Rams’ second-round pick (33rd overall) and restricted free agent safety Oshiomogho Atogwe is on the table.

“Absolutely false,” Billy Devaney told Jim Thomas, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “It’s utterly ridiculous. I haven’t talked to Philadelphia about any of their players.”

Another Rams source said of the Eagles, “They may have a trade offer, but not from us. Why would we trade for McNabb and then go watch Bradford throw on Monday?”

Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford, whom the Rams are considering with the No. 1 overall pick, has his pro day on Monday.

Atogwe is not eligible to be traded at the moment because he is not under contract. He was given the lowest possible tender and was not happy about it, but has not signed that tender.

The Eagles are not commenting.
