Rumors of the Arizona Cardinals sending Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to Philadelphia in exchange for Kevin Kolb seem to have a shelf life longer than a Twinkie thanks to the lockout, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re accurate.
Just a day after the rumors re-emerged, one national NFL insider is saying that draft picks — and not a player — will likely be what is dealt for Kolb.
Adam Schefter in the HERD: The Cardinals could get Kevin Kolb, but more likely done with a package of picks instead of a player.
When ESPN’s Adam Schefter speaks we tend to listen. He has his finger on the pulse of the NFL and the idea of the Eagles wanting multiple picks over a cornerback who struggled to make a tackles in 2010 seems to make sense.
Then again, Schefter does hedge his bet in the quote by saying likely and nothing during the entire Cardinals quarterback saga and lockout has seemed to follow logic. Luckily it seems like the team, and the rest of us who have followed it, will have their answer as soon as Monday.
