Kevin Kolb Trade Rumors: Arizona Cardinals Could Have a Deal Ready for Eagles QB
Two Second-Round Picks The Reported Offer For Kolb
Kevin Kolb is one of the hottest commodities in the NFL outside of a new collective bargaining agreement.
In absence of real NFL news, the trade rumors have been flying around with the Dolphins reportedly not interested in paying the Eagles' asking price, rumored to be a first-round pick.
On the heels of that report comes the rumor the Arizona Cardinals would be willing to offer the Eagles two second-round picks, which would be in line with past deals for a backup quarterback to Michael Vick.
So the Falcons sent Matt Schaub to Houston. The teams swapped first-round picks, with Atlanta going from 10th to eighth, and the Falcons received a second round selection that year (2007) and another in 2008.
That deal worked out pretty well for Houston as Schaub has gone on to have a good career. Even more interesting, Schaub's starting experience is similar to Kolb's at this point. In fact, Kolb's resume is slightly better.
The Cardinals will weigh their options, but they will have to make a decision fast because the Eagles will take the best offer, and if someone offers them a first-round pick for Kolb, the Cardinals will lose out and then have to hope Marc Bulger has not already signed elsewhere.
The Cardinals quarterback situation is not good. Derek Anderson and his Arm Of Doom will most likely be cut as soon as the league year begins and Jon Skelton and Max Hall just are not ready to be starting quarterbacks yet.
Whether Skelton or Hall ever develop is a different argument, but the Cardinals certainly would feel better if they did hot have to find out in Week One of the 2011 NFL Season.
