The Philadelphia Daily News reports the Eagles, indeed, have an offer on the table that would send Donovan McNabb to the Rams in exchange for the No. 33 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft and FS O.J. Atogwe. According to Eagles beat writer Jeff McLane, McNabb "could be in a Rams uniform by the end of the day, possibly by the end of the week." An NFL source says the deal is "not yet completed," but McNabb has OK'd the trade if St. Louis extends his contract. He is not willing to play in Buffalo or Oakland. 6:00pm UPDATE* A Rams source tells Profootballtalk.com that there is "zero truth" to rumors that St. Louis might send the No. 33 overall pick and FS O.J. Atogwe to the Eagles in exchange for Donovan McNabb. The source says "all focus" at Rams Park is on evaluating draft-eligible QBs. It's worth noting that reports have Philadelphia -- not St. Louis -- making trade proposals. Thus, it's possible that the Eagles are using the media in an attempt to drive up McNabb's price tag. The No. 33 pick, especially in a rich draft that contains at least 50 players wearing first-round grades, is a highly valuable selection. And Atogwe is St. Louis' most reliable defensive back. 6:52pm UPDATE** Rams GM Billy Devaney shot down reports that his club might acquire Donovan McNabb Wednesday, calling the rumors "absolutely false." "Nothing to it," another high-ranking Rams official informed Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "It’s utterly ridiculous," Devaney added. "I haven’t talked to Philadelphia about any of their players." "They may have a trade offer, but not from us," yet a third Rams source said. "Why would we trade for McNabb and then go watch (Sam) Bradford throw on Monday?" whew, dodged a bullet there. Turns out to be no truth folks! Rotoworld.com -Rjblitz02
