Philadelphia Eagles Offered 2012 1st Round Pick for Quarterback Kevin Kolb
The Eagles were unable to trade quarterback Kevin Kolb in the 2011 NFL draft due to the work stoppage. The move cost the Eagles what would have likely been another first-round draft pick (which I think they would have used on a safety).
But Sports Illustrated’s Peter King has reported in his Monday Morning Quarterback column that a team has offered a first-round draft pick in the 2012 draft for Kolb. The team is unknown.
Philly.com suggests that the report could have come from the Eagles, who are potentially trying to increase Kolb’s value without anything actually being reported for him.
But I believe the report to be official. After all, Kolb is going to be 27 next season with a bright future ahead of him. He could easily start now and for the next seven to ten seasons.
