ST. LOUIS (AP) - Reports that the St. Louis Rams are trying to acquire Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb are untrue, according to a person familiar with the team's plans.
Media outlets in Philadelphia on Wednesday reported the Rams had offered a second-round draft pick and safety Oshiomoghe Atogwe for McNabb. The source told The AP that the reports were unfounded.
Atogwe is coming off shoulder surgery and ended the season on injured reserve, and would have to sign a tender offer before the Rams could trade him. He had made 60 consecutive starts and was the team's second-leading tackler before getting hurt in early December.
