Adam Schefter of ESPN believes there’s a great shot that Eagles backup QB Kevin Kolb is going to be in another uni in 2011, and that uni is going to be out west in Arizona, where he will be the starter for the Cardinals in 2011.
“Kevin Kolb is going to get dealt from Philadelphia, most likely going to be to the NFC West, and right now all signs point to Arizona,” Schefter said on NFL Live Tuesday, via 710 ESPN Radio.
The Eagles can only hope that the Seahawks get involved in order to drive the price up. This is definitely a recipe for some good offers being sent to Philly: Two division rivals who believe they can contend right now if they can just find a quarterback.
Kolb has been rumored to be on his way out from the moment the Eagles were out of the playoffs and the team resigned QB Mike Vick to a franchise tender. He’s been the victim of bad luck – got hurt in the season opener, and Vick shined from there. If the Cards can get a deal done to grab him, they can go right back to being contenders in the NFC West, a division that was won with 7 wins in 2010.
