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.

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.

With the ink not even dry on the New York Jets' dreadful season, Rex Ryan fled to the Bahamas only to be photographed lounging poolside at a resort hotel, book in hand, with an interesting tattoo gracing his right biceps.

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.

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?"

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.

This column was first published in August 2009. SHELBYVILLE. Ky. - Buddy Ryan's whistle pierced the Kentucky morning. "Yo," Ryan called across the back pasture, larger than a football field. "Come on. Come on. " Six horses looked across at the 75-year-old man standing at the fence, wearing a windbreaker and a New York Jets hat. 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.

The New England Patriots have lost only six home games in the last six seasons, so there aren't many quarterbacks in the NFL who know what it's like to leave Gillette Stadium with a victory. Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez is one of them. Sanchez lost four regular-season games with the New York Jets in Foxborough, Mass., but he was the winning quarterback against the Patriots in the second round of the playoffs on Jan. 16, 2011. Sanchez is expected to be the Eagles' No. 2 quarterback Sunday when the Patriots host the Eagles.

After six games with the Eagles, Sam Bradford has nearly an identical passer rating (80.0) to the one he had after 49 games with the Rams (79.3). It would be simple to rationalize his struggles this season as just more of the same from the quarterback. But Bradford has actually been worse than he was during his first five years in the NFL. He is being intercepted at almost twice the rate (on 3.9 percent of his passes) as he was in St. Louis (2.2 percent). Theories for the disparity abound.

Sam Bradford's visits to the podium at the NovaCare Complex were cut in half after the first week of the season. Rather than answer questions on two days each week, the Eagles quarterback opted for just one day - as is his right - but for a longer period. Bradford may have regretted the decision after the first three weeks. As his struggles continued, the questions about the Eagles' inability to throw downfield began to mount over the 8-10-minute sessions. "Why aren't you taking more shots?"

DeMarco Murray watched from the sideline Sunday when the Eagles' running game had its most productive game of the season. Murray, who led the NFL in rushing yards in 2014 and was signed to be the Eagles' lead running back, might be able to keep another Sunday from going by without him. Murray was a full participant Thursday in practice. His injured hamstring is feeling better. He would not commit to playing Sunday against Washington, but his involvement in practice is a good indication.

DURING AN eight-minute chat with reporters after practice, Sam Bradford twice used this phrase: "The ball goes where it's supposed to go. " Bradford was being pressed yesterday on why the Eagles' passing game hasn't produced big plays or very much yardage, not to mention touchdowns, heading into the fourth game of the season, Sunday at Washington. People who rewatched last Sunday's 24-17 victory over the New York Jets, in which Bradford completed 14 for 28 for 118 yards, saw a quarterback standing in a clean pocket, usually, often facing receivers who seemed to be open deep - and then repeatedly throwing underneath.

Sam Bradford completed only 50 percent of his passes and passed for 118 yards in the Eagles' 24-17 win over the New York Jets on Sunday, but coach Chip Kelly continued to support his starting quarterback. "I think Sam's doing a good job," Kelly said. "There are some throws Sam probably wants back. There are a couple in there that he missed, but there are also some drops, too, that I think could have really extended some drives for us. But we are pleased with Sam right now. " There were two dropped passes that could have resulted in big plays.
