Curtis on the trade block; Kolb is 3rd QB

The Eagles had a pretty good reason to scratch wide receiver Kevin Curtis for the third straight game.

Curtis is on the trade block according to reports.

With more than enough wide receivers to get the job done against almost any team, much less the clumsy Oakland Raiders, it made no sense to subject what could be a valuable commodity to injury.

Curtis probably wouldn't bring the Eagles a first-day despite the league-wide demand for fast, veteran wide receivers. But it helped that he practiced all of last week.

The Baltimore Ravens are looking for help on the outside. They're coached by John Harbaugh, who previously worked for the Eagles.

Also, the Eagles made Michael Vick the backup quarterback implicitly by designating Kevin Kolb the third quarterback. The Eagles kept three quarterbacks active the past two games. If the third quarterback plays, the other two canot return to the game.

Never liked the move when they signed Curtis a few years ago. Hope he goes soon.
