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.

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. It showed his wife, Michelle, wearing an unmistakably green Jets jersey emblazoned with the unmistakable No. 6 of embattled quarterback Mark Sanchez. And nothing else. The * * *

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.

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.

Peyton Manning could be the missing piece for the Miami Dolphins. Or the Arizona Cardinals. Maybe even the New York Jets or Seattle Seahawks. Washington, Kansas City, Denver, and Tennessee also are possible suitors. But for now, where the free-agent quarterback lands is anybody's guess. Including Manning's. "I have no idea who wants me, what team wants me, how this process works," Manning said. "I don't know if it's like college recruiting where you go take visits.

Three members of the Eagles' scouting department, including two directors, are no longer employed by the team, NFL sources said. Director of pro personnel Rick Mueller, director of college scouting Anthony Patch and southwest area scout Brad Obee were informed that they would not return on Sunday after the draft. The purging of personnel staffs is typical when a new regime has taken over during the offseason. Teams generally wait until after the draft for fear that scouts could divulge plans to a new employer.

Maybe the path to understanding why the Eagles signed Tim Tebow and how Chip Kelly plans to use him begins with a phone call between a pair of New York Jets coaches in March 2012. It has been three years and a month since the Jets completed a trade that sent two draft picks to the Denver Broncos for Tebow, and just before the franchises consummated the deal, Rex Ryan dialed up his special-teams coach, Mike Westhoff, to solicit his opinion on adding Tebow in a jack-of-all-trades kind of role.

The roster move the Eagles are expected to make Monday shot straight to the top of the publicity charts. A lot of people might have been Tebowing that it was not true, but it is. The Eagles are adding a Heisman Trophy winner to their crowded quarterback depth chart. Oregon's Marcus Mariota remains a long shot to be in Eagles green after the NFL draft. Tim Tebow, on the other hand, will be on the practice fields at the NovaCare Complex after he signs a one-year deal with the team Monday.

After spending 10 years with the Eagles and signing with the Indianapolis Colts last month, Trent Cole and Todd Herremans will not need to wait long to return to Philadelphia. The Colts will visit the Eagles for the preseason opener in August, the first of the team's four-game slate announced Thursday. The other opponents are the Baltimore Ravens, Green Bay Packers, and New York Jets. The dates and times will be announced later. The Eagles will not play the New England Patriots, which means they will not have joint practices with the defending Super Bowl champions after the two teams worked together during the last two preseasons.

Sam Bradford never finished better than 18th in the NFL in completion percentage in four seasons with the Rams, and yet, when Chip Kelly was asked what separated the quarterback from Nick Foles, he said "overall accuracy. " The numbers don't support the Eagles coach's claim. Bradford's 58.6 career completion percentage is three points lower than Foles' 61.6 mark. But numbers don't always tell the full story, and it's clear that Kelly has calculated the difference he expects his offense will have on the success of Bradford following this month's trade with St. Louis.

Chip Kelly's impromptu news conference was either designed to calm fears that Jeffrey Lurie handed his franchise over to a madman or was a smokescreen to further aid his efforts to land Marcus Mariota. Whichever it was - and there was probably more to the press-shy Eagles coach's decision to meet with reporters for 24 minutes Wednesday - Kelly helped himself. Kelly logically explained each of his roster decisions over the last few weeks, and whether you agreed with his rationale or not, he always had an answer to the "Why?"

The Eagles pulled back the curtain to reveal the bitterness that had developed between Chip Kelly and Howie Roseman when they announced Wednesday afternoon that they had "parted ways" with Kelly ally and vice president of player personnel Tom Gamble. Aside from a brief statement by Roseman, the Eagles swung the curtain closed with nine hours to go until the new year. Weeks will pass before anyone from the organization is required to talk and be asked to explain why they fired - because that's essentially what it was - someone Kelly had praised only two days earlier.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Mark Sanchez had finished what was his final game as the Eagles' starting quarterback, and perhaps as any kind of Eagles quarterback, and as he walked through a corridor here at MetLife Stadium, people kept stopping him to shake his hand and hug him.

IN JANUARY 2009, Mark Sanchez held a news conference to announce he was leaving USC a year early. He shared the dais with his then-coach, Pete Carroll. Carroll made it clear they did not share the same feelings. A blogger for the LA Times wrote: "Carroll was visibly unhappy, refusing to sit down for part of the press conference and saying that he disagreed with the decision based on a number of factors. 'We don't see this decision the same,' he said. 'Mark is going against the grain on this decision.

Mark Sanchez and Tony Romo won their first playoff games on the same night: Jan. 9, 2010. Sanchez and the New York Jets beat the Cincinnati Bengals in Cincinnati. Romo and the Cowboys beat the Eagles in Dallas. A big night for both of them. A big day for both of them coming up now. That night represents the intersection of the best argument for Sanchez and the best argument against Romo as viable and reliable NFL quarterbacks. These arguments, which revolve around the core question of how to evaluate those who play the most important position in sports, are particularly relevant ahead of Eagles-Cowboys on Thursday.
