Gaither Signs One-Year Tender With Eagles

Restricted free-agent linebacker Omar Gaither has signed a one-year tender offer from the Eagles.

Gaither started the first three games of last season for Philadelphia at middle linebacker, but was benched in favor of Jeremiah Trotter in Week 5.


Philadelphia No Longer Shopping Vick

While a majority of the attention surrounding the Eagles involves a possible Donovan McNabb trade, the team still has two other viable quarterbacks.

ESPN's Sal Paolantonio reports that the Eagles are still getting calls about Kevin Kolb.

In addition, a team source says that Philadelphia is no longer shopping Michael Vick.


Source: No Frontrunner For McNabb

The Eagles continue to discuss possible trades involving quarterback Donovan McNabb, but nothing appears imminent.

"There is no so-called front-runner," a senior team official told ESPN's Sal Paolantonio.

"We continue to engage in conversations with multiple teams that initially contacted us. Some of the offers involve draft picks, some involve a player, some involve many players. We are evaluating the offers. But if some team had totally blown us away, we would probably have made a deal already."

Earlier this week it was reported that the Raiders were the frontrunner to land McNabb, but those reports appear to be premature.

Oakland, however, does have the pieces needed to acquire McNabb from Philadelphia.


Sources: Raiders, Eagles Haven't Discussed McNabb

Two Raiders employees have told the Oakland Tribune that the team has not discussed quarterback Donovan McNabb with the Eagles.

An ESPN report Monday said that the Raiders are the leading candidate to land McNabb in a much-rumored trade.
