Friday night, we passed along speculation that Cleveland could be a dark-horse landing spot for Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb, who seems certain to be traded after the lockout ends. The Browns are a connectable dot because G.M. Tom Heckert held a similar role in the Philadelphia front office when Kolb was drafted in 2007.
According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, however, the Browns won’t be in the mix for Kolb.
Citing a league source, Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer reported Saturday that the Browns “won’t pursue Eagles QB Kevin Kolb.”
The Arizona Cardinals remain Kolb’s likeliest suitor.
