    Reid's words reignited rumors that McNabb could be wearing a different jersey next season.

    Donovan McNabb, Kevin Kolb and Michael Vick are all still wearing Eagles green but that could soon change.

    The Birds are listening to trade offers for all three of their quarterbacks, head coach Andy Reid told Inquirer columnist Ashley Fox.

    Reid’s words could tell the real story about the Eagles plans.

    "This is the truth: Our three quarterbacks are Philadelphia Eagles," Reid told Fox at the NFL's annual meeting in Orlando. "People are entertaining us with offers. Nothing's been done, but we're evaluating all of them. That's the truth. There's not a lot really going on other than entertaining."

    Wow could Reid finally be admitting that the likelihood of the Eagles actually entering Training Camp with all three of their current QBs appears to be unlikely?

    Could this mean that McNabb could possibly be gone after more than a decade with the Birds? That would be a reversal from Reid’s stance earlier in the year when he said D-Mac would return to the team.

    Part of the reason for the sudden honesty could be that the Eagles have reportedly lowered the asking price for McNabb or Kolb -- possibly in a move to get more teams interested. No longer would it take a first-round pick to peel either QB away from the Birds, said Fox.

    But what about Vick -- who has said he wants to start somewhere in the NFL this season?

    There is little interest in Vick, sources told Fox.

    With at least a dozen teams still not set under center the Birds could have what teams ranging from the Cardinals to 49ers to Seahawks to Vikings could want (and need) -- an experienced QB.

    It seems that in the weeks leading up to next month's NFL Draft the talk will continue to be about No. 5 and the Eagles’ QBs in waiting. That is until one is sent away from the nest.
