Kevin Kolb Trade Rumors Just Won't Stop

The most popular player in 2011 NFL trade rumor season is none other than Philadelphia Eagles QB Kevin Kolb. He's widely expected to be traded at some point this week now that the NFL lockout is over and trades are allowed. Reportedly, the Arizona Cardinals are at the top of the list.

This is one of those deals that makes too much sense not to happen. The Eagles will commit to QB Michael Vick and Kolb is simply too valuable not to get something for. I'd expect him to be traded and I'd expect it to be to Arizona.

The Cardinals are only a couple of years removed from the Super Bowl so they're not devoid of talent. In fact, they have a lot of talent but, as they learned last season, you need a quarterback to legitimately compete in the NFL. Bring Kolb in and have him throw to WR Larry Fitzgerald and the Cards could be talking playoffs again.

Trades were allowed to begin at 10:00 a.m. (ET) on Tuesday morning. There were rumors that Cardinals CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie could be part of a possible deal but that's unclear. The Cardinals should be able to come up with the compensation necessary, whether that's a first round pick or Rodgers-Cromartie and a pick.
