Breaking news this offseason, the blockbuster we have all been waiting for appears to have been confirmed. Kevin Kolb has been dealt to the Cardinals for the rights to Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, a pretty good cornerback on the Cardinals who has struggled a bit as of late, and a 2nd round selection.

This is huge news, especially because Kolb got a huge contract from the Cardinals- I read that it was 5 years, $63 million with over $20 million guaranteed… That’s huge considering his limited amount of playing time. I would definitely not have done this trade if I was the Cardinals, but it’s a great trade for the Eagles. They get DRC at a discounted price and even if he doesn’t pan out as a stud, there’s no way he isn’t an upgrade over what they currently have opposite Asante Samuel. Great move by the Eagles, as usual.

Will update as I hear more information,
