The Philadelphia Eagles are still in a rebuilding phase after losing Carson Wentzer, and the team has been linked to the free-agent market recently.
However, the team also reportedly has interest in Arizona’s Carson Palmer.
A few days ago, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported that the Eagles had contacted the Arizona Cardinals about bringing in Palmer, a former NFL quarterback.
Palmer signed a five-year, $110 million contract with the Cardinals last offseason.
It was the first extension the Cardinals had ever given a quarterback.
Palmer was named MVP of the Super Bowl last season and the first-round pick in this year’s draft.
The Eagles are not the only team interested in Palmer.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the San Francisco 49ers have also been in the mix.
The 49ers are not just interested in acquiring Palmer, they’re also interested in trading him.
That means the 49ers could use the money to sign another quarterback.
According to Bleacher Report’s Geoff Hobson, the 49er front office has been looking to add a new quarterback since free agency opened up last year.
According the article, the front office is in talks with the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a quarterback, but none of those teams has been able to reach a deal.
Hobson also reported that former Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford has also been “talking with” the 49ERS about a potential trade.
Bradford signed a four-year deal with the Eagles last offseason, but the team traded him to the Minnesota Vikings last month.
Bradford has played well in his first two starts as the team’s starter, but his play has been erratic.
He completed only 37 percent of his passes and threw five interceptions.
The Eagles have been one of the worst quarterbacks in the NFL during Bradford’s tenure.
The team could also use a quarterback this offseason if they do not trade Wentz.
According for the Associated Press, the Eagles are expected to be active in free agency this offseason.
