According to Pro Football Weekly, Eagles back-up quarterback Kevin Kolb could be trade bait during the next offseason.

With the talk of a new contract for Donovan McNabb, Kolb could become expendable.  Kolb's contract runs through the 2010 season.

The Eagles still reportedly like Kolb's potential as a starter in the league.  However, this situation could be reminiscent of the Packers dealing Matt Hasselbeck to the Seahawks or most recently the Matt Cassel trade to the Chiefs by the Patriots.

The possibility of a trade could be predicated on how well McNabb performs in 2009 or how well Kolb does on the field if given the chance to showcase his talents in a blowout.

Regardless, the quarterback situation for the years beyond 2009 is still in question for Philadelphia.
