Five Reasons Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie Will Be a Great Fit in Philly

The NFL lockout has finally ended, but Kevin Kolb has yet to be traded.  There have been a ton of different scenarios that have been discussed, but it seems like a deal will get done with Arizona before the week ends.

Arizona has been a front-runner in the Kolb sweepstakes for a long time, and there has been tons of speculation about what the Cardinals would give up to get Kolb. 

To begin, it seemed like Kolb would be traded for draft picks.  However, with the lockout still in place through the 2011 draft, talks changed to the Eagles acquiring something that would help them win this year.  Acquiring picks for the 2012 draft wouldn't help.

Early after the draft and even while it was going, the most common rumors discussed the Eagles ending up with Cardinals first-round draft pick Patrick Peterson.

A trade with the Cardinals still seems like a definite, and the Eagles receiving a corner from Arizona also seems like a given.  However, it seems like this trade will end up with the Eagles receiving Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and some other form of compensation.

This wasn't the most popular scenario early on, but let's take a look at why it should be a beneficial trade for the Eagles.
