It’s starting to sound more and more like a deal to get Eagles QB Kevin Kolb in a Cardinals uniform in 2011 is going to be tough to pull off.
The latest rumor was that the team was going to offer straight up CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie for Kolb, but according to the Arizona Republic, that’s not going to happen either.
Each day seems to bring more speculation about what the Cardinals will be willing to give up in exchange for the Eagles Kevin Kolb. ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio recently said the Eagles want to get a player who contribute immediately, not a draft pick, in exchange for Kolb.
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has been inconsistent in Arizona, and there’s no question coaches’ patience will run out if DRC doesn’t mature and put in the necessary study time but great cover corners — and Rodgers-Cromartie has the potential to be great — are hard to find. If the Eagles are asking for Rodgers-Cromartie in exchange for Kolb, that’s a high price to pay but a good quarterback makes a bigger difference in a game than a good cornerback. It all comes down to how coach Ken Whisenhunt and GM Rod Graves evaluate Kolb.
