Eagles Trade Kevin Kolb To Arizona Cardinals

It's just been reported that the Philadelphia Eagles have granted the former future of the franchise his wish to be traded. The Eagles traded Kevin Kolb to the Arizona Cardinals for CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a 2nd round pick. In turn ending any hopes for Nnamdi Asomugha to dawn the midnight green this season.

After being drafted in the 2nd round of the 2007 NFL draft, many of us were left scratching our heads. After patrolling the sidelines for much of his Eagles career, it seemed as though Kolb would finally have his chance after Donovan McNabb was traded last offseason. Anointed as the starting QB for the Birds last preseason, an injury sidelined him pretty much before he got going. That in turn opened up the door for Mike Vick, who took the opportunity and never looked back.

Kolb's not hurting though. After signing a 2 year extension last year, it's being reported that Arizona and Kolb have agreed on a 5 year extension worth $63 million ($22 million guaranteed).

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was drafted by the Cardinals with the 16th pick in the 2008 NFL draft. Known as a bit of a turnover machine, lined up opposite another ball hog in Asante Samuel should give opposing QBs fits. Unfortunately he also has a reputation for being a soft tackler, as does Samuel. The kid's still young though, and can only go up from here.

Things are beginning to get interesting here in Eagle Country! We'll continue to keep you posted on developing stories throughout what is starting to become known as Free Urgency.
