According to ESPN’s John Clayton, the Philadelphia Eagles have dealt back-up quarterback Kevin Kolb to the Arizona Cardinals for playmaking cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a future second round draft pick.

The former Houston cougar gunslinger will earn $63 million over five years, with north of $22 million guaranteed.

This is the second consecutive off-season the Eagles have shipped a notable signal caller to an NFC team for a second rounder.

It works out for both teams, as the Cards receive a much-needed starting quarterback (I apologize, Max Hall), while the Birds acquire a defensive back to start opposite side of Asante Samuel.

Lastly, the trade opens up Brett Favre for another return to football, playing in the City of Brotherly Love, Rocky, and cheese steaks.
