Did The Eagles Court QB Alex Smith Last Year?
It’s becoming increasingly clear that the Eagles did not want to go into last season with Michael Vick as their only option at quarterback.
There have already been multiple reports indicating that they looked into signing Peyton Manning and rumors have surfaced about them trying to trade up to pick Robert Griffin III.
But here’s a new name to add to to that mix: Alex Smith.
“There was a courtship last year, to a certain degree,” ESPN analyst Trent Dilfer told Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Smith was a free agent, and the 49ers were in the mix for Manning’s services. Smith even took a visit to Miami to meet with the Dolphins, but ultimately, he went back to San Francisco.
“I don’t know a whole lot,” Dilfer added. “I just know there was a courtship. It was not even an inside source, you know what I mean? It was just kind of the scuttle in the offseason.”
