Dolphins Mike Tannenbaum chose Josh Freeman over Matt Barkley. That was the delay in the Tebow signing. #eagles
Philadelphia has reportedly had Barkley on the trading block for months, but it appears as though they weren’t able to find anyone willing to part with the type of compensation they were looking for. With the recent drought in quarterbacks, the Eagles may look to place Barkley on the block again.
