Peter King: ‘Get used to the cacti, Kevin Kolb’

Jul 26, 2011, 3:00 AM | Updated: 4:06 am

As the trade rumors linking Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb and the Arizona Cardinals grow stronger by the second, one of the big guys has given his opinion.

Get used to the cacti, Kevin Kolb.less than a minute ago via TweetDeck Favorite Retweet Reply

With seven words, King set Twitter on fire. Within minutes of sending the tweet, it had already been retweeted by 57 people, and popped up all over our timelines.

If King is accurate — and he most likely is — the Cardinals will have a new signal caller within minutes of the window opening on Tuesday, if they’re smart.

King’s tweet holds two interesting ideas. The first, is he suggesting that Kolb doesn’t have a choice about where he goes because the Cardinals want him so badly? This could be true, especially given all the rumors about Kolb heading to Arizona and the Cardinals’ supposed willingness to give Philly pretty much whatever they want.

The other side to his tweet is that Kolb may finally be the solution to the Cardinals QB issues. At 26, Kolb could offer the organization a stable presence under the center that the franchise needs.

Kolb could become the franchise player the Cardinals are searching for, but he’s going to come at a heavy price.

Maybe King’s next tweet should say, “Hope you like cheesesteaks, DRC.”
