Patriots Expressing Interest in an Eagles QuarterbackBy
When the New England Patriots cut former third-round pick, quarterback Kevin O’Connell, no one in Philadelphia paid much attention. However, that may have been a mistake.
According to Jason La Canfora of NFL Network, the Patriots are “among the many teams” interested in acquiring the services of A.J. Feeley. Back in 2007, Feeley ran the then-undefeated Patriots to the wire in a three-point loss in which he passed for nearly 350 yards, but a late interception to current teammate Asante Samuel sealed the deal.
Belichick is always looking to bring in players who have played well against his team, as evidenced by the trade for Greg Lewis earlier in the offseason. For the record, Lewis has eight touchdowns against the Patriots, including one in the Super Bowl.
As expected, La Canfora also states the obvious by saying that the Eagles will not consider moving Feeley until Vick is officially reinstated. Considering Vick will, at the very latest, be reinstated before the trading deadline, it appears as though Feeley will indeed be moving at some point in the year.
Unless a team outbids them (which is unlikely because when Belichick wants a guy, he gets a guy), Feeley will most likely be a New England Patriot.
Feeley has started in this league, and in the right system, has played very well. Personally, I’d prefer that the Eagles keep him instead of Kolb, but seeing as how Kolb was a second-round pick, he won’t be going anywhere this offseason.
