Jeff Garcia Returning To The Birds???

This is an Examiner.com piece to read the original Click Here.
With the departure of Donovan McNabb to Washington and the style of play that Michael Vick lends himself too their is not a true veteran backup quarterback to act as a mentor for the Birds new signal caller Kevin Kolb.

The team has not made a move yet but former Birds QB Jeff Garcia says that he would jump at the opportunity to come back to the city of brotherly love.

"I would welcome the opportunity to return to Philly and be a part of the Eagles' organization and to be in front of those great fans again" stated Garcia via email to the Associated Press.

Garcia also stated that he likes the potential in Kolb and that he thinks he could be a contributor for years to come. Garcia also thinks he could help Kolb mature into a leadership role. "I know that I would be a great addition/mentor for Kevin as well as many of the other young guys on the team. Time will tell."

No words from Eagles front office about the move but I think I speak for many fans in saying this would be a smart move for a team looking for veteran leadership.

Garcia carried the Eagles to the 2006 NFC East title after McNabb went down with a knee injury before losing in the playoffs.
