The Arizona Cardinals are still the front runners to land Kevin Kolb, but the Philadelphia Eagles have some needs to fill prior to parting with the quarterback.
Clark Judge of CBSSports.com believes the Cardinals will acquire Kolb when all is said and done, but that they will need to secure a backup first.
In the end, I think the deal gets completed for all the right reasons: Arizona needs a quarterback, Philadelphia needs a cornerback and both teams are running out of time.
But it’s not a slam dunk. Not yet it isn’t. The Eagles must feel good about their backup to Michael Vick before they make the next move. That will have to happen before this trade does.
In addition to Kolb and Vick, rookie Mike Kafka is the only quarterback on the Eagles roster.
