Thanks to the Arizona Cardinals and Philadelphia Eagles ongoing negotiations everyone has become like the guy looking to buy a new car. They’re haggling over exactly what the right price is for Kevin Kolb.
Sports 620 KTAR’s Doug and Wolf are no different. They both have a price in mind they would like to see the Cardinals pay for Kolb. They just don’t happen to be the same page about what that exactly is.
“I would be all on board with [Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie] and a third round pick being shipped off for the services of Kevin Kolb,” Wolf said Thursday morning. “I don’t put a ton of stock into draft picks. I know that’s how you build an NFL team, through the draft. I realize that but don’t forget about the undrafted free agent rookies. The undrafted free agent rookies that do what? Come into the league and play like first round picks.”
While Wolf thinks trading DRC and a pick is acceptable, Doug doesn’t want to see the Cardinals give up that much.
“I want it to be DRC or a first round pick,” he said.”I don’t like DRC and a pick. I want it to be DRC and that’s it. If they do, do that I will disagree with it but I get it.
“If Kolb takes off then people will laugh if it was only DRC and a second round pick, if that’s what it ends up being. If Kolb becomes the second Philadelphia quarterback to be hyped up by Andy Reid and then traded away — A.J. Feely — then it’s a joke no matter what you gave up.”
Will the Cardinals be laughing all the way to the
bank playoffs? Only time will tell. But one thing is for sure, they are the talk of not only the national sports scene but the NFL. Now that’s worth a lot more than a player and a pick.
