Eagles send Holcomb to Vikings

Clearly confident with A.J. Feeley and Kevin Kolb as Donovan McNabb's backups, the Philadelphia Eagles traded quarterback Kelly Holcomb to the Minnesota Vikings on Monday in exchange for an undisclosed draft pick in 2009.

Philadelphia acquired Holcomb, along with linebacker Takeo Spikes, from the Buffalo Bills in March in exchange for defensive tackle Darwin Walker and a conditional draft pick in 2008. He
became expendable when the Eagles used their top selection in thisyear's draft on Kolb. Philadelphia re-signed A.J. Feeley in the offseason to be the backup and Donovan McNabb appears to have recovered from a torn ACL.

In other team news: Philadelphia placed defensive tackle Jerome McDougle, running back Ryan Moats and offensive lineman Stefan Rodgers on injured reserve and released kicker E.J. Cochrane, wide receivers Dereck Faulkner and Jermaine Jamison, tight end Kyle Hunt, safety Chris Smith and guard Chris White.
