Seattle Already Has Offered the Eagles a First and Third for QB Kolb

Well this one caught me off guard and I would be very surprised if this were 100 percent accurate, but it is Softi and he is a reliable source and I do trust him at the same time.

Whenever transactions eventually commence it appears the Seahawks are ready to step up and make Kevin Kolb their long term franchise quarterback.

According to Dave Mahler, the Seahawks have offered a first and third round pick for Kolb:

“Heard from a source Seahawks have offered Eagles 1st and 3rd for Kolb”

This should not come as a surprise if it proves to be true, the Seahawks need a long term solution at quarterback and it could be argued he is a better option at this moment then any rookie drafted.

The price may seem steep, but think about it, it’s no different then a team moving up from say, No. 25 to No. 21 overall to draft a rookie quarterback and having to fork over a third round pick in the process.

They may not even be the best offer, who knows? Maybe someone offered a first and a second.

Pete Carroll would be making a bold move acquiring Kolb for a price similar to what the Texans payed for Matt Schaub. Essentially, he is banking on him developing into a Schaub, who has developed into a top ten quarterback in the league.

Whether he can do that or not, that’s another story.
