Mike Lombardi of the National Football Post wrote Monday that Kevin Curtis would be "available for trade" this week.

But Lombardi said he doubted anyone would make an offer.

Curtis has missed the Eagles' last two games with a knee injury, and after Jeremy Maclin's performance against the Bucs, it's reasonable to wonder if he has a role with the Birds going forward.

He had two catches for 26 yards in Week 1 against the Panthers and three for 44 yards against the Saints.

The NFL's trade deadline is Oct. 20.

Curtis had 77 catches for 1,110 yards and six touchdowns in his first year here in 2007. However, last year he appeared in just nine games, finishing with 33 catches for 390 yards. Curtis turned 31 in July.


Meanwhile, commissioner Roger Goodell commented today on the possibility of Rush Limbaugh buying the Rams, specifically referencing Limbaugh's comments about Donovan McNabb.

"The views of a lot of people, most importantly our players, and I've talked to players so I understand the issue of the players and the comments that Rush made specifically about Donovan, I disagree with very strongly," he said on NFL Network. "And it's polarizing comments that we don't think reflect accurately on the NFL or our players. And I obviously do not believe that those comments are positive and they're divisive, and that's a negative thing for us. But I disagree with those comments very strongly, and I've told the players that."

Much more coming Wednesday, including Man Up on the defense and our penalty tracker.
