Cardinals, 49ers and Seahawks could all have interest in Kolb

ESPN’s Adam Schefter writes that every team in the NFC West outside of the Rams may have interest in trading for Kevin Kolb.

Teams still can discuss deals, just can’t complete them (like NBA in June). At least three teams debating deals for Eagles QB Kevin Kolb.

Hard to pinpoint specific teams interested in Kevin Kolb, but every NFC West team except St. Louis has to consider him and deal with Eagles.

Obviously the Cardinals, 49ers and/or Seahawks can’t do anything until a new CBA deal is in place, but Schefter’s report makes sense based on those teams’ needs.

That said, would the Cardinals be willing to give up the fifth overall pick in the first round? Would the Niners we willing to give up the seventh? I could see the Seahawks parting ways with the 25th but I’m having a hard time believing that any team would be willing to trade a top-10 pick of Kolb. (Maybe that’s just me.)

Another team that has to be considered as a potential landing spot for Kolb is the Vikings. They’re going to run a variation of the West Coast Offense under new offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave, so Kolb makes a lot of sense for Minnesota. The Vikes hold the 12th overall pick and if they’re willing to draft a quarterback at that spot, why not trade for a more seasoned WCO vet like Kolb instead?

Of course, this is all based on the assumption that the Eagles even want to part ways with Kolb. I know they franchised Michael Vick, but given his injury history Philadelphia may want to hang onto Kolb for the time being.
