We've heard national analysts like ESPN's Adam Schefter say the Arizona Cardinals in heavy pursuit of Kevin Kolb but we've yet to hear any local experts weigh in. That is until now.
Sports 620 KTAR host and Arizona Cardinals color analyst Ron Wolfley says he's been told that Kolb is indeed on the team's radar.
"I can tell you right now," Wolfley said on the Doug and Wolf show Thursday. "I have been told that the Arizona Cardinals are players in the Kevin Kolb sweepstakes. I've been saying that for weeks. They're in there swinging. Whether or not their going to get him, I have no idea. Right now of course, because of the lockout and the situation it's put them in and him, Kevin Kolb in, who knows what's going happen. There's just so much uncertainty right now."
While Wolfley doesn't know if the Cardinals will land Kolb or not, it's certainly interesting to hear someone with as many connections within the organization admitting they're seriously interested in adding the quarterback from the Philadelphia Eagles.
Will the asking price be too high? Are there too many other teams vying for his services? Is the lockout going to impede any chance of getting the deal done? We don't know but at least we now know the Arizona Cardinals are at least examining the possibility of adding the young quarterback.
