Well, I guess the latter is looking like it will play out. Adam Schefter and Peter King both feel the Cardinals and Eagles have a deal worked out involving Kolb and presumably a first round pick. Schefter and King are two of the most respected and well plugged in reporters in the game and if they say there’s a deal; then there’s a deal.
This deal is barring a new CBA or whenever the courts decide to end the lockout. That decision could come as early as this week.
This deal is a solid trade from both sides, which doesn’t happen often. The Eagles would acquire a first round pick which one would think would be relatively high in the 2012 draft. The Cardinals get their quarterback of the future and of Larry Fitzgerald’s choice. Fitzgerald has made it known publicly that Kolb is his choice for the team quarterback.
This one could take place later this week so keep an eye on Schefter (@AdamSchefter) and King’s (@SI_PeterKing) Twitter accounts.
