Eagles Backup QB Kolb Not Likely to be Headed to the 49’ers


Kevin Kolb continues to be the hot backup QB that many think will get moved this offseason once all the CBA and lockout mess takes care of itself.

It’s been said a number of times that the Niners are one team that has their sights on Kolb, but that may not be the case according to Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, who say that a trade between the Eagles and 49ers isn’t likely to happen.

The Eagles are listening to trade offers for backup quarterback Kevin Kolb, but based on a report Monday from Sports Illustrated’s Peter King, it appears unlikely Kolb will be shipped to the 49ers if that new CBA happens before the April 28 draft. King, citing a “good source” from the NFL meeting, reports the Eagles have one team willing to offer a first-round draft pick for Kolb.

Now, Eagles coach Andy Reid is looking for a team to make him a better deal. This would seem to rule out the 49ers as the team that has made the trade offer. After all, the 49ers own the No. 7 overall pick and that would seem to be too high of a price for Kolb, who has completed 60.8 percent of his passes while starting seven games in four NFL seasons.
