We understand teams are going to do the type of preparation work that teams do with the NFL draft just weeks away.
Tannehill was unsure what to make of the news himself.
"I don't really know why," Tannehill told King. "I'll just get ready to throw for them and do my best."
Unless he morphs into a pocket passer as he ages -- think a late-period Randall Cunningham -- Vick's likelihood for injury only figures to increase as he advances into his 30s. Kevin Kolb left the team prior to the 2011 season and Vince Young wasn't the answer as his replacement, leaving an unsettled depth chart in Philly. Tannehill could fill the understudy slot while serving as the QB of the future, perhaps in the Favre-Rodgers mold.
Of course, the Eagles -- who pick 15th in the first round -- would have to get aggressive to even have the opportunity to select Tannehill. The QB's stock is rising fast, and he could go as high as No. 4 to the Cleveland Browns. The Eagles, who have other issues to worry about, remain distant long shots at best.
