Kevin Kolb & John Skelton Splitting First Team Reps

Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com writes that John Skelton andKevin Kolb are rotating first-team reps during the Cardinals OTAs.

This is a clear indication that Arizona is sticking with their strategy of holding quarterback competition before deciding on who the eventual starter will be.

Head coach Ken Whisenhunt said in an earlier report, that Skelton and Kolb would both get an equal chance at getting a chance to start at quarterback.  Urban points out though that the Cardinals have invested “a lot” in Kolb, but he feels that won’t “insure him the job, although maybe it tips it to him with everything else being equal.”

While Kolb was out with concussion last season, Skelton took over as the starting quarterback and performed better than most expected him to after coming off the bench.  But the odds of Skelton starting week one seem long at this point in time.
