I heard ESPN NFL Insider John Clayton on local sports radio last night talking about the labor dispute progress. In that conversation, the host asked him where he thought some of the big name, free agent quarterbacks would end up. I thought I would break down his answers.
1. Kevin Kolb to the Arizona Cardinals - He said this was pretty much a no-brainer but that it would come in the form of a trade, sending Arizona cornerback Dominique Rogers-Cromartie to the Eagles in return for Kolb (and possibly drafts picks). Pretty good fit for Kolb in that this team has a great receiving corps and a pretty stout defense. Could definitely make a legitimate run at the NFC West with this deal.

3. Donovan McNabb to the Minnesota Vikings - I kinda raised my eyebrows at this one. Although I think with Ponder waiting in the wings, going with a veteran QB who's closer to the end of his career than the beginning is probably the best idea. I still think McNabb got a raw deal in Washington, so I'd like to see him go out on a higher note.

5. Tarvaris Jackson and Matt Leinart to the Seattle Seahawks - According to Clayton, Pete Carroll is looking to completely overhaul this team, mainly on offense. This would certainly be a change, maybe not a good one, but a change nonetheless. Who knows, maybe Carroll can do for Leinart what he did for Mike Williams, make him slightly decent.

In closing, I'd like to add that it was pretty difficult to find an image of McNabb actually playing in a Redskins uniform. Also, who exactly will have dibs on #7 in Seattle?
