With one week of the NFL Free Agency period in the books, the NFL draft and trade rumors will be the highlight of the next month.

We have seen Pro-Bowlers Antonio Cromartie and Anquan Boldin dealt to the other side of the country, while rumors of Brandon Marshall are still looming around the league.

However, this past week, trade rumors have begun regarding Eagles' quarterback Kevin Kolb and former first round selection Brady Quinn.

Earlier in the week, Mike Holmgren and the Browns' front office made it clear that they wish to groom their own quarterback under new management.

Despite not having the best shot as quarterback of the Browns, Cleveland has already began shopping Quinn around the league.

As for Kevin Kolb, we have learned that the Seattle Seahawks are greatly interested in the former Houston quarterback.

Kolb showed potential if put in the right system, along with the proper talent around him. He performed well while Donovan McNabb was on the sideline, which may have forced a few teams to bite.

The question now is: Will either of the quarterbacks be dealt, and who is more likely to move?

There is a list of teams that can use a quarterback right now, especially as this year's class raises some caution.

The St. Louis Rams, Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, Seattle Seahawks are among the teams that can use a quarterback.

What is the price tag for these quarterbacks? Rumors have it that the Eagles are looking for a first round pick for Kolb, which may lower the interest.

It is uncertain as to what the Browns are looking for, but a combination of draft picks could push Quinn out of Cleveland.

Currently leading the league in draft picks for this year's draft, the Browns can only get richer in this case.

I think it's too early to give up on Quinn in any circumstance. It wouldn't surprise me to see the Broncos take a chance on Brady, knowing how McDaniels will take on any project.

There is bound to be a team that would trade for Quinn, if the price isn't a top draft selection.

Speaking of the Browns, is there a possibility that the Browns could be interested in Kevin Kolb themselves?

Former Eagles general manager Tom Heckert moved to the Browns front office this year, and could be greatly interest in his former draft pick.

Would the front office be willing to deal the seventh overall pick, or combination of picks within this year's along with next year's draft?

The rumors will certainly continue to fly, but in the end, I believe Brady Quinn is more likely to find a new home this offseason.

The Browns are determined to continue improving the team with their product on the field, and if a decent offers comes around, we can see Quinn being shipped out of Cleveland sometime soon.
