Report: One team willing to offer first-round pick for Kolb

Even though the Eagles can’t actually trade Kevin Kolb anytime soon, they are busy creating a market for him.

We have noted that Eagles coach Andy Reid and G.M. Howie Roseman have made it clear lately that Kolb is available. SI’s Peter King reports one team has already said they are willing to trade a first-round pick for him.

“Now [Reid is] looking for a team with a higher choice in the round to make him a better deal,” King wrote in MMQB.

That makes us wonder what mystery team is offering a first-round pick. We made the case a few weeks back that Seattle is the most logical fit for Kolb this offseason. They pick No. 25 overall.

If the Eagles truly do have a first-round offer in hand and have the ability to trade Kolb before the draft, he’s as good as gone. For now, those are large ifs.
