When will McNabb deal happen?

From reading the comments on our previous posts, we get the sense a lot of you are already tired of the rampant discussion and unsubstantiated rumors about where Donovan McNabb will be traded. And we don't blame you.

From reading the comments on our previous posts, we get the sense a lot of you are already tired of the rampant discussion and unsubstantiated rumors about where Donovan McNabb will be traded. And we don't blame you.

Today, we will take a different tack on the McNabb conversation. Not about where he might land, but when he will land somewhere, if he is even traded at all. Making a move with the quarterback will help dictate a lot about the remainder of the Eagles' offseason, especially if they get a high draft pick in return or a player at a position of need, or both.

The Eagles have insisted they are not done building this team. Even Andy Reid conceded last week that they had more work to do. He said the team was ready "to compete," but the issue really is whether they can contend.

At right is a poll with some possibilities, ranging from being traded in the immediate future to not being traded at all. Obviously, the two key dates to consider here are the start of the NFL draft on April 22 and the date McNabb is due a roster bonus of more than $6 million, which is May 5.

The big NFL story of the day is quarterback Sam Bradford's Pro Day at Oklahoma, which got underway a short time ago. Many big names are in attendance among the 50 or some team executives, including four representatives from the St. Louis Rams, who have the No. 1 pick overall. That includes general manager Billy Devaney and head coach Steve Spagnuolo.

According to Yahoo Sports' Charles Robinson, Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg is also in attendance.

Another interesting nugget on the quarterback trail in terms of the draft is that Tim Tebow was in Buffalo last night and had dinner with Jim Kelly. The best part of this is that it was revealed by his wife Jill on her Twitter page.
