The answer to the New York Jets' quarterback woes could be . . . ex-Eagle Kevin Kolb? Or could it be Geno Smith - if he slips past the Eagles, who have the fourth pick in the coming NFL draft? The speculation about Kolb has heated up for several reasons, according to several sources. The Arizona Cardinals owe Kolb a $2 million payment if he's still on their roster Saturday ("which is some pretty sweet St. Patty's Day drinking money," quips thescore.com) so he's expected to be cut. Also, his base salary is $9 million, with a cap number of $13.5 million, and Arizona just signed according to profootballtalk.com.

No team in the NFL has been more aggressive in pursuing free agents than the New York Jets. Now the Jets are going after their biggest prize: Reggie White. Dick Steinberg, the club's general manager, said yesterday that the Jets have already shown that they're serious about White, the Eagles defensive end who has become the league's most sought-after free agent. "I think Reggie will be able to see that we've already improved our defense so that it can rise to another level," Steinberg said in a telephone interview.

It was Aug. 5, a normally newsy Monday afternoon at Camp Holdout at West Chester University. Two nights before, No. 2 quarterback Jim McMahon had sustained a sprained knee and sprained ankle in the Eagles' preseason victory over the New York Jets. On his way back to the dormitory after dinner, coach Rich Kotite stopped to shoot the breeze for a few minutes before heading to meetings. Eventually, a question about his emergency quarterback list came up. "You know what?"

RON JAWORSKI treats opportunity like a Doberman treats prime rib. So when Tim Tebow was released by the New York Jets on April 29, Jaworski took a shot by reaching out to the unemployed quarterback and offered him a roster spot with the Soul. He's still waiting for a reply. "I haven't heard back from him and I'm not going to push it," said Jaworski, one of the Soul's owners. "If he decides he wants to play Arena Football, we'll make a spot for him. " Jaworski and Soul coach Clint Dolezel sent Tebow a list of plays they had in mind for him, most were around the goal line.

Temple linebacker Tyler Matakevich was on the phone with NFL teams that were looking to sign him as a potential free agent after the seventh round of the draft. Then Matakevich got a call he said he had to take. It was from Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin. "It caught me off guard, and then I saw on the TV that Pittsburgh was picking next," Matakevich said on Monday in a phone interview. Indeed, he was picked next, the 246th overall selection in a 253-player draft.

There is little significant buzz about Michael Vick, although two quarterback-needy teams remain possibilities: the New York Jets and the Oakland Raiders. Neither team has addressed its quarterback situation this offseason, and both teams have head coaches who need to win in 2014 - Rex Ryan in New York and Dennis Allen with the Raiders. Vick would likely be welcomed back by the Eagles as a backup, but he wants to compete for a starting job. The No. 2 quarterback on the Eagles roster is slated to be Matt Barkley, but the team could bring in competition.

The New York Jets traded backup quarterback Glenn Foley to the Seattle Seahawks yesterday for an undisclosed 1999 draft pick. Foley, 28, last season lost his starting job to Vinny Testaverde, who led the team to the AFC championship game and recently signed a three-year, $19.4 million contract. In Seattle, Foley will compete with Jon Kitna for the starting job. Kitna went 3-2 last season after taking over for Warren Moon. Foley, a graduate of Cherry Hill East, had been the starter until injuries prevented him from playing a full season.

The Pats are at Arizona, and host Miami, Houston, and Buffalo in the first four. Outlook: Their string of seven consecutive division titles will get tested as the Patriots also will be without running back Dion Lewis and right tackle Sebastian Vollmer for a minimum of six weeks.

Lincoln Financial Field hasn't been the kindest venue for New York Jets quarterback Christian Hackenberg. In his second game at the Linc, playing his second NFL exhibition game, Hackenberg threw for more yards to the Eagles than he did to his own team. The result was a 14-6 loss to the Eagles in the preseason finale for both teams. Hackenberg completed 11 of 31 passes for 54 yards and one interception. His passer rating was 30.7. It was the first time Hackenberg was at the Linc since playing for Penn State during a 27-10 loss to Temple in last year's opener for both teams.

The Eagles players exited the locker room after a 14-6 win over the New York Jets on Thursday night knowing the next time the team officially convenes, there will be 22 fewer names on the roster and the games are about to count. Two players who emerged from relative obscurity to relevance this summer finished a sterling preseason: undrafted rookie wide receiver Paul Turner, who led the Eagles with six catches for 66 yards and had a 71-yard punt return touchdown, and veteran defensive end Steven Means, who had the Eagles' lone sack and two additional quarterback hits.

The message was brief if, in fact, the Eagles had intended to put Mychal Kendricks on notice. But when the third-string tight end and running back are standing on the sideline while you're slogging it out in the Rodney Dangerfield of preseason games, someone somewhere within the organization is clearly trying to make a point. The first question now is whether Kendricks received the message. If it sailed over his head, or if there was a misinterpretation, then the Eagles may already have the answer.

Last year, the would-be NFL general manager met with the wise and accomplished former player personnel executive, and the two of them discussed the question that came to define the Eagles' 2016 offseason: What is the best way to find a great player at the most important position in football? The men spent a few days together, probing each other's mind to flesh out their respective philosophies about the search for a franchise quarterback. Finally, the elder man persuaded his conversation partner that the best course of action was to do the exact opposite of what the Eagles did during the 2016 offseason.

An NFL team's fourth preseason game is supposed to be for the guys you don't know, the guys fighting for jobs in the league, hanging on to the hope that they'll be the 52nd name on the 53-man roster, that they'll land on the practice squad, that they'll have something resembling a future in pro football. It's not supposed to be for a player who has started 53 games at linebacker over the last four seasons, who ostensibly will be one of the Eagles' starting outside linebackers this season.

Another whistle - this one loud enough to stop a train - got the thoroughbreds wandering over. "They think they're going to get fed," Ryan said.

WE'RE GOING to find out a few things about how much the Eagles have really improved over the past few weeks, when they host the 11-2 Arizona Cardinals Sunday night. One of the questions to be answered is how Sam Bradford and the offense will stack up against a dominant, fourth-ranked defense that blitzes more than any other group in the NFL. "I think they're right at about 50 percent," Eagles coach Chip Kelly said this week. Actually, the figure is 46.9 percent, according to STATS.

Chip Kelly and Rex Ryan were geniuses at different times for the same amount of time: two years. That's how long each of them had atop that pedestal before the rest of the NFL knocked them off. If you're a head coach and want to be a genius for more than two years, you'd better have Joe Montana or Tom Brady as your quarterback. Otherwise, there will be a reckoning, and it will be humbling. Kelly's reckoning, of course, began in the final four weeks of last season, his second with the Eagles, and has continued through the first 12 weeks of this one. His up-tempo, simplified-playbook approach to offense doesn't catch opponents off guard as often as it once did, and his reliance on a rigorous sports science program has at times inspired eye rolls from at least some of his players.
