NFL Rumors: Cardinals Still The Favorite For Kevin Kolb?

ESPN’s Adam Schefter addressed the Kevin Kolb situation on NFL Live Tuesday, via 710 ESPN Radio by mentioning that “Kevin Kolb is going to get dealt from Philadelphia, most likely going to be to the NFC West, and right now all signs point to Arizona.”

“Right now, all signs point to Kevin Kolb somehow finding his way to Arizona,” said Schefter, “which would make Larry Fitzgerald very happy, which would make the Cardinals an instant contender in the NFC West.”

GM Rod Graves mentioned that they plan on being aggressive in regards to the quarterback postion.

“With respect to the quarterback question, which continually arises, we’ve decided as an organization that we are going to be aggressive,” G.M. Rod Graves said. “We are expecting at some point, or believing, that we will have a free agency period, an opportunity to discuss trades, and we are looking at those avenues.”

Cardinals head coach should some concern about the state of the team and echoed Graves’s intent to aggressively pursue a quarterback during the offseason.

“After you go 5-11, I’m not comfortable with anybody we had playing that position,” Whisenhunt said via AZCardinals.com.  “You have to weigh your opportunities in the draft against other opportunities. It’s a complete process. It’s not an isolated process.”

The fact that the Cardinals passed on quarterbacks at multiple points during the draft suggests that they have a plan in place to get a quarterback. Whether it’s Kevin Kolb or it’s Marc Bulger, you can expect that Arizona will have a new quarterback as soon as the lockout is lifted.
