The delays may be over and Kevin Kolb may be an Arizona Cardinal very soon.

According to a tweet by NFL.com’s Jason La Canforna, Kolb could be in the desert in the next 48 hours.

People I’m talking to continue to believe Kolb to the Cards could be done within 48hrs. And I hear Orton to MIA a very real possibility tooless than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry® Favorite Retweet Reply

The Cardinals patience has been praised by some, but Arizona also needs a sense of urgency. As other teams continue to fill their quarterback voids, the asking price for Kolb will drop and the leverage rests with the Cardinals.

However, if Orton gets traded in the near future, and it looks like he might, the leverage goes back to the Eagles as what seems to be the Cardinals back up plan would be off the board.
