Reuben Frank of CSNPhilly.com has confirmed with two leagues sources that the Eagles do not have a trade in place to send Kevin Kolb to any team as of now.
There has been so much speculation regarding a possible Kevin Kolb trade that it’s not surprising to see this turn out be false. This is probably the 50th Kevin Kolb trade rumor to be shot down and you can expect more to come once the league year is finally underway.
I applaud the Arizona Cardinals and Ken Whisenhunt for taking the best player available and possibly the best player in the draft, Patrick Peterson, at No. 5. They could have reached for Blaine Gabbert or taken a pash rushing end like Robert Quinn but the choose to take the best cornerback in the draft.
Even though they got a great player at No. 5, there’s still plenty of holes remaining on their roster and the most obvious of them is the quarterback position.
Eric Edholm of Pro Football Weekly writes that they’re hearing the Cardinals have interest in Eagles backup quarterback Kevin Kolb.
Teams will still have to wait to find when they can begin signing and trading players but it appears that the offseason will be underway early next week.
It was also reported that the Cardinals may already have an “understanding” in place with Marc Bulger but head coach Ken Whisenhunt said “I don’t know anything about that.”
All things considered, it would be surprising to see Arizona take a quarterback in the early part of the second-round because it appears that they’re focusing on veteran options rather than bringing in more prospects.
