When the rumors of the Cardinals trading Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to Eagles for Kevin Kolb surfaced, they were met with some skepticism and disbelief.
Now the rumors appear to be fact.
The Arizona Republic’s Kent Somers reports that the sticking point in a deal is not the former Pro Bowler.
The Cardinals are still discussing compensation with the Eagles, who reportedly are seeking a starter and at least a high draft pick. The Cardinals are willing to part with starting cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, but the two sides apparently can’t agree on other parts of the deal.
Additionally, the Cardinals would have to sign Kolb to a new deal. Dealing Rodgers-Cromartie and a draft pick, coupled with spending big money on Kolb, would be a hefty price to pay for an unproven quarterback.
We knew the Eagles wanted to trade Kolb, and it was assumed the Cardinals had great interest. The only thing we didn’t know was the asking price, and that appears to be taking shape.
