Everything that we’ve heard up to this point has suggests that Arizona is the favorite to land Kolb once a new CBA is in place but the Seattle Seahawks could be another alternative option. Any deal is going to come down to the asking price and Philadelphia appears to be sticking by their asking price of a first-round pick and possibly more.
If the Cardinals are the only team with an offer on the table, there’s no way that they should consider a package that consists of a first and second-pick because they will still have to re-sign him once the deal is done because Kolb will be a free agent in 2011. The draft picks alone would be a steep asking price for a player that has very limited experience in NFL but the contract makes it even worse. Arizona would be wise to approach the situation with caution because they can always sign Marc Bulger or Matt Hasselbeck for a reasonable contract and keep their draft picks.
