When (or if) the league year eventually starts, one of the biggest stories will be whether the Eagles trade backup quarterback Kevin Kolb, where, and for what compensation. One new report indicates that if the Eagles do trade Kolb, it won’t be to Miami because the Dolphins don’t think he’s worth what the Eagles want.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that Miami doesn’t want to trade a future No. 1 pick for Kolb when the lockout ends, which may be what the Eagles are seeking.

As one Dolphins official explained it, Kolb’s body of work consists of seven career starts, 11 touchdown passes and 14 interceptions. That doesn’t exactly scream “franchise quarterback.”

On the other hand, Kolb has two NFC Offensive Player of the Week awards in those seven starts. Not many quarterbacks have that many big games so early in their careers.

So some team is probably going to offer Philadelphia a first-round pick. It just won’t be the Dolphins.
