Eagles showing interest in Sims?


The Eagles may be one of the teams in the mix for Seahawks guard Rob Sims, according to reports.

Sims (6-3, 312) signed his restricted free agent tender, according to Jason La Canfora of Per his report, the Eagles, Bears and Lions are all looking to acquire Sims via trade.

Sims is 26 and played in 14 games last season. According to ESPN's John Clayton, who reports the Eagles might have interest, Sims can play either the right or left side.

It's difficult to predict what the interior of the Eagles' line is going to look like in Week 1 of the 2010 season. With the current roster, I'd assume Nick Cole would play center if Jamaal Jackson's not ready. Todd Herremans has the left guard position locked down, but don't forget that he slips over to left tackle if Jason Peters gets injured. And on the right side, the optimistic view would be that Stacy Andrews gets his act together and claims that spot. Max Jean-Gilles would be the other option.

Again, we're getting way ahead of ourselves, but that's what it looks like now.

Daily McNabb update

Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt was asked once again about Donovan McNabb today.

"As of right now, he's with another football team so it's not something I can comment on," Whisenhunt said, per Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic. "I've known Donovan from being on the field with him, and he's a good football player and a good person. Hopefully, things work out for him the way he wants it to."

Somers explained that Whisenhunt was likely just having some fun with reporters, given that the Cardinals have said repeatedly that they're not interested in McNabb.
