Yesterday we discussed the proposed deal of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to the Philadelphia Eagles in return for Kevin Kolb. Earlier reports suggested that it would require more than just Rodgers-Cromartie to land Kolb.
Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News expands on the idea by reporting that the Eagles do have interest in Rodgers-Cromartie but would want a third-round pick that could end up being a conditional second-rounder depending on Kolb’s performance.
This seems like a reasonable deal for a player that’s likely to be your starting quarterback. The only issue that remains is that whoever trades for Kolb will have to sign him to a longterm contract after giving up a players and a draft pick. Kolb’s agent has said previously that Matt Schaub‘s six-year $48 million deal is a decent projection of what he’s looking for. That’s a lot money for a guy that has seem very little playing time over the course of his career.
