Kevin Kolb: Traded to Arizona

Posted on July 28, 2011 at 12:02 PM


The Eagles have traded Kolb to the Cardinals for Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second-round pick, Fox Sports' Adam Caplan reports. To make the deal happen, Kolb will sign a five-year extension for over $63 million, with over $20 million of that guaranteed.


All in all, the Cards paid a steep price for Kolb, but they are hoping that acquiring him brings the team the stability at QB they have been missing since the departure of Kurt Warner. Kolb is a clear upgrade from the signal-callers the team rolled out last year, with the most obvious beneficiary here in fantasy terms being star wideout Larry Fitzgerald.
