Source: Eagles get calls on Kevin Kolb
The Philadelphia Eagles have received numerous calls about the availability of quarterback Kevin Kolb from several teams, according to a senior team official.
"We have had calls," the team official said Wednesday.
One of the teams to contact the Eagles about Kolb was the Cleveland Browns, whose general manager is Tom Heckert. Heckert was the Eagles' GM before taking over in the same capacity with Cleveland before this season.
When asked Wednesday whether Kolb would be on the Eagles' roster after the Oct. 19 trade deadline, Eagles coach Andy Reid said, "Listen, I can't predict anything down that far, nobody in this league can do that."
Kolb has missed the last six quarters because of a concussion, and Vick played well in his absence. Kolb was cleared to practice and was expected to run the first-team offense on Wednesday.
However, on Tuesday night, Vick was named the Eagles' starting quarterback, with Reid saying "when someone is playing at the level Michael Vick is playing, you have to give him an opportunity."
Vick came on in relief of Kolb after Kolb suffered a concussion in a 27-20 season-opening loss to Green Bay. Vick threw for 175 yards and one touchdown and ran for 103 yards, and last Sunday he passed for 284 yards and two touchdowns in the Eagles' victory over the Detroit Lions.
If they trade Kolb they are gonna Sign Vick long term
