They did want to resign Garcia. It was when Garcia's agent want to have the time to test the FA market that the Eagles decided to move on.
(Obviously, it was also a ploy to make the Eagles up the ante.)
It tells us that Feeley was not very high in Reid's mind.
Basically, before that draft, no one talked about the Eagles taking a pick on a QB that high. When they took it, everyone was surprised.
You can look back and say, "Oh... it was obvious they were going to use a 2nd round pick to get a backup QB when they've got lots of other needs that should probably be addressed first." But that's only because hindsight is 20-20.
That was a foolish pick on the Eagle's part. Kolb probably woud have been available in the third, possibly even in the fourth. It was a pick on a guy that was/is probably going to sit on the bench for 2-3 years minimum when they could have gotten a starter at various positions that could have helped them make the playoffs last year.
