Peter King of SI.com reports Kevin Kolb doesn’t want to be in Philadelphia; he wants to have a chance to get a starting job somewhere else, and Reid has promised to try to make a deal if it benefits the Eagles.
He already has an offer of a first-round pick in the 2012 draft from an unknown team. The window for the 2011 league year opened and closed quickly last week; players like Kolb, who want to be traded, and free agents who want to hit the market have to wait for the league year to open before moving. That could happen this week if the Eighth Circuit forces the NFL to open doors and end the lockout.
Asked how he stands with Kolb right now, Reid said: “We stand with Kevin in an Eagles uniform. We love Kevin. He’s one of the great team guys we’ve had here. We had an idea who was interested in him entering the draft, and now we’ll have to go back and look at it when they tell us we can make moves.”
