One of the biggest stories of the 2011 offseason has been the fate of Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb. After spending his first three seasons behind Donovan McNabb and the better part of a fourth season behind Michael Vick, Kolb could finally get his chance to become a franchise quarterback.
Unfortunately, the NFL lockout has temporarily taken away the Eagles' ability to trade Kolb. It's looking increasingly likely that player trades will not be allowed again until after the draft, which could throw a monkey wrench into the Eagles' offseason plans. Teams that normally would have paid top dollar for Kolb may instead opt to satisfy their QB needs as soon as possible by gambling on a rookie like Blaine Gabbert, Cam Newton or Jake Locker.
Still, the general consensus is that Kolb will be playing for another team by the start of the 2011 regular season. There are plenty of organizations that have shown an interest in the young quarterback and, as Eagles president Joe Banner told Yahoo! Sports, "They are the teams people are guessing [they might be]."
Of course, quarterback-needy teams such as the Titans, 49ers, Dolphins and Redskins have often been mentioned as potential landing spots for Kolb, but four teams have stood above the rest when it comes to showing their interest.
Let's take a closer look at those teams.
