Kevin Kolb Trade To Arizona Cardinals Done, Eagles Get Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

The Kevin Kolb trade that has hung over the 2011 NFL offseason and free agency period like a bowling pin millimeters from dropping is finally complete. ESPN's John Clayton reports that the Kolb trade is done, and will send the Eagles quarterback to the Arizona Cardinals for Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a draft pick.

Kolb has been trade bait since Michael Vick's renaissance displaced him from the starting quarterback position in Philadelphia, and Arizona, in need of a quarterback of the future after a 2010 season marked by John Skelton and Derek Anderson struggling under center, was always the first partner named.

Flipping Kolb for Rodgers-Cromartie shores up the Eagles' secondary, which has been racked by injuries, and could give the Eagles a stellar trio of cornerbacks if Ellis Hobbs and Asante Samuel can stay healthy.
