Philadelphia Eagles Receiving Trade Offers for Quarterback Mike Kafka

By Bryn Swartz

It’s no surprise that teams would give anything to have quarterback Michael Vick on their roster. All Vick did in 2010 was completely resurrect his NFL career with a Comeback Player of the Year performance.

And everybody knows that Kevin Kolb is one of the most coveted quarterbacks out there. In fact, if it wasn’t for the current NFL lockout, Kolb would likely have been traded by now.

But nobody expected the Eagles to receive trade offers for third-string quarterback Mike Kafka.

A league source tells The Philadelphia Inquirer that the Eagles have received trade offers for Mike Kafka, who has a fourth-round pick in the 2010 NFL draft and has yet to take a single snap in the NFL.

The team (or teams) interested in Kafka were not revealed. Neither was whether or not the Eagles would consider parting ways with the former Northwestern quarterback.

Even Kafka has to be surprised that teams are interested in him. After all, his trade value now is no higher than it was a year ago.

He didn’t exactly prove himself during the 2010 preseason either, completing 42.4 percent of his passes for one touchdown and three interceptions.

Regardless, the Eagles can’t trade Kafka anyway until the collective bargaining agreement has been established. Even then, they will likely hold onto the 23-year old for the 2011 season.
