As soon as the lockout ends, the Arizona Cardinals will need to acquire a quarterback.
The NFL offseason has already been cut short and the Cardinals will want as much time as possible for their new quarterback to learn the offense and develop chemistry with Larry Fitzgerald and the other receivers.
While talk of who the Cardinals are looking to acquire has varied, Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb always seems to find his way to the focal point of Arizona quarterback conversations.
It’s go West young man. Most of the people I talk to in the league believe it’s a two-horse race between Arizona and Seattle. The Eagles want first-round compensation, and if the market bears only a second and a little something else, then sources say there is a very real chance Philly holds on to him as insurance for 2011. Ultimately, I think they get the first-round pick for him, though. If not, he stays.
Of the quarterbacks the Cardinals have been rumored to be interested in (Kolb, Orton, Palmer), Kolb is the most likely to be traded.
The price for Kolb may or may not be worth it depending on who you ask, but the Cardinals need a quarterback and the market may not have a lot of options.
