An ESPN report Monday said that the Raiders are the leading candidate to land Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan Mcnabb in a much-rumored trade that could be consummated soon.
If so, that's news to the Raiders.
Two Raiders employees remain steadfast that the Raiders haven't even spoken with the Eagles about McNabb, who is in the final year of his contract.
Also, Eagles coach Andy Reid said last week that he isn't seeking to trade McNabb, just listening to offers.
That hasn't prevented the McNabb-to-the- Raiders angle from being explored from coast to coast, in the papers, on the Internet and across the airwaves.
