Seattle radio station: Seahawks make big offer for Kevin Kolb

DeSean Jackson, Kevin Kolb AP

The most insane two weeks of player movement we’ve ever seen could be just a few weeks away.

It’s only natural for the rumors to pick up, and no player has caused more idle speculation, rumors, and reports this offseason than Eagles backup quarterback Kevin Kolb.  The latest comes from Dave “Softy” Mahler of 950 KJR in Seattle.

The host hears from a source that the Seahawks have already offered a first- and third-round pick for the fifth-year pro.

It’s not a shocker.  The Seahawks were known to have interest in Kolb last season, when he wasn’t available.  Peter King of Sports Illustrated reported that a team already said it would give up a first-round pick for him.  Other than perhaps Arizona, Seattle looks like the best fit for Kolb.

Even if the Seahawks didn’t want Kolb, it wouldn’t hurt for them to enter the bidding or float an offer to drive up the price for their division rival.

We’ve heard so much about Kolb by now that it’s hard to know what’s rumor and what’s fact. Still, we’d be surprised if he doesn’t land in the NFC West.

    If we don’t trade him while the offers are good, Andy Reid is a complete idiot.

    As a 49ers fan this is great news! Kalb is nothing more than a system QB, and as bad as Alex Smith is Kalb isn’t any better.

    @ Gregg Rosenthal who said: “Even if the Seahawks didn’t want Kolb, it wouldn’t hurt for them to enter the bidding or float an offer to drive up the price for their division rival.”

    Gregg, read your posts and saw ya once on video – it’s safe to say you’re a good guy (and I appreciate your quality work). So don’t take this the wrong way.

    But my question is how can you assure it “wouldn’t hurt to … float an offer” when that offer can be accepted? Offer + Acceptance + Consideration = Binding Contract.

    In other words, what if said offer (implied to possibly drive up the price) is accepted? Under that theory, Seattle could have offered three firsts for Kolb if they had no concern their offer would be accepted.

    Just sayin’ G — just sayin’.

    They’ll need to replace Hasselbeck somehow, since he is going to end up as Ponder’s mentor.

  5. trbowman says: Jul 2, 2011 5:22 PM

    Eagles are just trying to pump up his value in any way they can. I can’t think at the end of the day, they’re going to let him rot this season and not get any value for him.

    This isn’t what Arizona wants. If the Seahawks want Kolb, there’ll be a bidding war between them and Arizona. What that means is that Arizona will have to give up more than they normally would if they want him.

    Just think. Take the Seahawks out of the equation, and Arizona is pretty much the only suitor for Kolb. That means Philadelphia needs Arizona just as much as Arizona needs Philadelphia.

  6. transam7816 says: Jul 2, 2011 5:24 PM

    It pisses me off that so many think he’s worth a first rounder

  7. backinblack67 says: Jul 2, 2011 5:30 PM

    I really dont think he is as good as everyone seems to think, but he will never play over Vick as long as Mike is still able to walk. So if the Hawks can score a third they would be stupid to turn it down.

  8. backinblack67 says: Jul 2, 2011 5:32 PM

    1rst and 3rd even.

  9. SpartaChris says: Jul 2, 2011 5:33 PM

    Is Kolb even that good? I mean, I saw him play half a game last season, but since I don’t follow the Eagles that closely, I don’t really know. Seems to me he missed games due to injury, then lost his starting job.

  10. atwatercrushesokoye says: Jul 2, 2011 5:33 PM

    If they really got offered a 1st and 3rd for Kolb the Eagles should be calling the Seahawks 1 second after the lockout is lifted to finalize that deal!

    I still have yet to figure out what exactly Kevin Kolb has shown to be worth that much, he’s only started 7 games in his career, has a QB rating of 73.2 and has thrown more interceptions than touchdowns.

    On the positive side, if Kolb is worth a first and third than the Broncos should be able to get at least a second for Orton!

    One last thing, even though it has nothing to do with this story, Raiders suck! The team finally gets to .500 for the first time in years and the fans are acting like Chargers fans, talking big after doing nothing….commitment to mediocrity baby!!!

  11. sasquatchery says: Jul 2, 2011 5:34 PM

    You guys can have him. We’ll take Orton, thank you very much.

    =================================

    If Vick gets hurt (good chances of that) and all the Eagles have at #2 is Kafka then would that make him an idiot for trading Kolb?

    If you trade Kolb for a “good offer” then who is your #2? Who do you have in mind to replace him?

    Keeping Kolb and franchising him in 2012 wouldn’t be a bad option if there’s nothing better and no offer that can’t be refused.

  13. thehatefulnerd says: Jul 2, 2011 6:06 PM

    Guess they’re not that high on Charlie Whitehurst after all.

  14. jake6881 says: Jul 2, 2011 6:38 PM

    KOLB is worth 2 first round picks. What do any of you really know about Kolb! Get over it eagle haters! The eagles did there home work and will get what they should for Kolb! Stop bitching b/c you hate the eagles! GET OVER IT!!!!!!!!!

    Kolb is pretty good. I’d be excited if I was a Seahawks fan. This coming from a Cowboys fan.

  20. Soulman45 says: Jul 2, 2011 8:42 PM

    The NFL is no longer a run first league it is now a passing league.

  21. zeckwreck says: Jul 2, 2011 8:48 PM

    Being a Hawks fan, I did raise an eyebrow when we drafted two O-lineman this year. It tells me that they want to protect the QB (whoever that may be) more so and focus on running the ball.

    If we land Kolb, we’ll have the best shot at winning the West. While that’s not saying much, that 1st rounder becomes #25 at best. Last I checked, #25 is rarely a game breaking player.

    Even though that price is a little crazy to me, Kolb would probably fair best in Seattle. Solid line, (potential) solid running game, and BMW to save the QB’s ass when they get pressure. BMW made Matt look like stud more than he should have last year.

    It could all be crap, but I trust this FO to get this team back to being a contender sooner rather than later.

    Oh, and the only reason Kolb lost the starting job is b/c Michael Vick is a freak of nature and will never lose that job while in Philly.

  22. vahawker says: Jul 2, 2011 9:08 PM

    Given the roster and schedule why would they give up #1 who likely will turn into Andrew Luck?

    Whitehurst starting=Luck drafted.

  23. lostsok says: Jul 2, 2011 9:13 PM

    A 1st and 3rd for Nob? GAG!!!!

    As a Phin fan, that would sure make me feel better about a 2nd for AJ Feeley!

  24. returnofmeezle says: Jul 2, 2011 10:08 PM

    Kolb is not good, he is borderline awful. I would be happy if the Eagles got a 7th round pick. If they manage to trade for more than a 3rd this would be a worse fleecing than the AJ Feely deal.

  25. mdnittlion says: Jul 2, 2011 10:19 PM

    @ vbe2
    If I had to guess what the #2 backup plan was if Kolb was gone I’d probably say Mark Brunnell. And Brother that’s not saying much.

    @ jimmysee

    Seriously dude you’re comparing Kevin Kolb with no real numbers at the college or pro level with one of the best QB’s in the history of the league? This is more like Jeff Garcia going to the Browns he was okay for the Niners really bad in Cleveland and pretty decent as a backup in Philly. Garcia currently plays in the UFL that’s your comparison.

  26. flybirdsfly says: Jul 2, 2011 10:26 PM

    Birds trade Kolb to Seattle for a 1st and 3rd.

    Birds sign FA V. Young to backup Vick.

    They end up with a decent backup get two great picks and everyone is happy. People will LOVE Young in Philly. Count on it.

    I sincerely hope we trade Kolb. His main problem is the looks for his check-downs first instead of the deep threat. Vick plays in the complete opposite direction. Big plays first then the check down.

    Trade Kolb and make he and Philly happy.

    I guess we could bring back Donovan as a backup? Right?

  27. carlsbadboltfan says: Jul 2, 2011 11:40 PM

    I still don’t see all the fascination with Kolb. I read the hype & hear it on Sirius NFL radio all the time. I just don’t get it. If Philly gets something good in return, bravo for them.

  28. nfl25 says: Jul 2, 2011 11:45 PM

    the funniest thing is u can tell who the smart football fans are. they say things like:

    who kolb, he sux. or kolb is the worst. or kolb couldnt keep his job in philly. or kolb has more ints than tds.

    while that is some excellent analysis, i think u r missing the whole picture.

    as i have said on here 10 times already, you have to look at the games he started and finshed and u have to exclude the week 16 game against dallas because it was kolb and 3rd stringers vs d ware and company.

    his stats on those games were good except for one game. 2 offensive player of the week awards out of 5 games and 1st qb in nfl history to throw for over 300yrds in his first two games. but u have to watch him play to actually be able to have an opinion. im not saying he will b t brady but this is why teams will give up a 1st rounder for him. he has only played in a few games and showed he could do it, thats more u can say for a 1st round pick

  29. rlr79 says: Jul 2, 2011 11:46 PM

    As a Seahawk fan I say not no, not hell no, but hell f*ck no! I honestly think we would be nuts if we gave them a second round pick he has proven jack, he was replaced by an ex-con out of football for two years that isn’t a pocket passer in a system that requires a pocket passer that should say a whole lot. I’m a realistic fan and would say that there is a better then good chance we could get a top 6 pick and last I checked that equals a good shot at getting Matt Barkley and I would be much happier with him. My money is this is a dis-information campaign to drive up the price, atleast I hope.

  30. volsunghawk says: Jul 3, 2011 12:58 AM

    Do not want. Please let this be more ridiculous conjecture from Softy.

  31. doggz109 says: Jul 3, 2011 1:16 AM

    Orton is a much better QB than Kolb and can be had for likely a lot less. I don’t get all the hype around this kid.

  32. jcdavey2011 says: Jul 3, 2011 6:29 AM

    why would they trade for kolb when they just gave up a pick last year for clipboard jesus?

  33. crubenst says: Jul 3, 2011 8:00 AM

    The Eagles will regret that deal. Vick regressed by the end of last year and Kolb is the league’s next star QB. He’s the next Brady.

    This isn’t what Arizona wants. If the Seahawks want Kolb, there’ll be a bidding war between them and Arizona. What that means is that Arizona will have to give up more than they normally would if they want him.

    Just think. Take the Seahawks out of the equation, and Arizona is pretty much the only suitor for Kolb. That means Philadelphia needs Arizona just as much as Arizona needs Philadelphia.
    _____________________
    Yes and no. You’re leaving out one key component…Larry Fitzgerald’s expiring contract. Fitz is entering the last year of his contract, and he has a no tag clause written into it. In other words, if Fitz wants to leave after this year he can go anywhere he wants, and the Cards will have no say over it. Now, by all reports, Fitz is a truly stand up guy. Having said said, it’s still hard to believe that he’ll agree to sign an extension or new contract with the Cards if they still have the same issues at QB that they do now. So, they need to improve at QB, and if they want to keep Fitz they need to do it real soon. If not, by the time they do improve at QB, they could find their once excellent WR corps quite depleted.

  35. gtmann says: Jul 3, 2011 8:26 AM

    The Eagles would be crazy to trade Kolb . We own him cheap (1.4 mil) . And with Vick’s style of play he is bound to get hurt . Plus I saw him regressing to his old Atlanta self late in the season .That pick to close the GB game was just STUPID ! It was 1st down , 33 sec on the clock , and he had Macklin wide open down the middle !!! When Vick goes down , or goes into meltdown , do you really want to hand the keys to Kafka who has NEVER taken a snap in a regular season game ?!!!

    _________________________
    Kolb doesn’t have injury problems. He suffered a concussion when he hit the turf face first with his arms pinned to his sides. Not much you can do about that. As for Kolb, he’s definitely got potential. He’s had good games and bad, but the bad tended to come when he didn’t have a chance to practice with the 1st team offense. For an example of the good, just take a look at how he ripped apart Atlanta last season. Definitely more of a West Coast offense QB, focusing more on timed short and intermediate passing routes, though he does have the ability to air it out at times. Like Aaron Rodgers (though not at the same level) he’s quicker than he appears and can scramble for a first down when he needs to. As for losing his starting job, he never really had much of an opportunity. He suffered that concussion in the first game of the season, only to have Vick go out and play better than he has at any other time in his career. Not only was Vick highly mobile again, but Reid, the OC, and the QB coach had helped him transform into a true QB as well. Vick actually looks to pass first instead of simply running with the ball, and even when he runs he now tends to keep his head up and look for an open receiver until he gets past the line of scrimmage. Who knows how good Kolb will end up being. That will depend as much on the system and his surrounding cast as it will his own skill level. What I can say is that he’s clearly better than a number of the options that will end up starting for different teams this year, and he’s without a doubt a real team player.

    The Eagles should keep Kolb and take offers for Michael Vick.

    Any Eagles fan that think Michael Vick is going to lead you to the promise land is delusional. Vick is the most inconsistent player around. He’s completely overrated right now. The “new Michael Vick” doesn’t exist.

    Kolb is a great up-and-coming talent. He’s a gym rat, son of a coach and will definitely be a long-time leader of a winning franchise.

    It’s not all about stats. The quarterback IS the face of the franchise. Has to be the hardest worker. The first to get there, the last to leave. He sets the tone for the whole organization.

    If the Eagles decide that is Michael Vick, then they deserve what they get.

    No wonder they never have won a Super Bowl.

    @ paulieorkid

    A deal can be agreed upon, but it isn’t official until the league signs off on it. The league won’t sign off on it until the 2 teams confirm the deal with the league. So Seattle can “offer’ 10 first round picks and the Eagles could agree. But, Seattle can back out of a deal up until the league signs off on it. That’s how they can drive up the price without fear of actually losing the “3 first round picks”. The problem with making an “offer” like this isn’t that it would be accepted. It’s that your reputation takes a hit and you lose respect around the league where other teams won’t take you seriously or won’t even listen to you for any potential, future deals.

    It pisses me off that so many think he’s worth a first rounder

    ——————

    That pisses you off? Really? Pisses you off? You got anger issues.

    Matt Cassel was a 7th round pick who hadn’t started a football game in 8 years until he started 15 in 2008 leading the Pats to an 11-5 record when the Patriots traded him to KC for a HIGH 2nd round pick (# 34).

    Kevin Kolb was a 2nd round pick, who has had some nice games for Philly the last 2 years. While it would have been nice to see Kolb have a 10-15 game stretch where he started, he has shown enough for QB desperate teams to offer a 1st. Personally, I don’t think he’s worth a first. I think a 2nd and 3rd at MOST. But, it doesn’t “piss me off” that someone thinks he’s worth a 1st. And, it shouldn’t “piss you off” either. The LOCKOUT should piss you off!

  42. bcgreg says: Jul 3, 2011 9:22 AM

    @ transam7816

    Plus, you have to look at the market. How many QB desperate teams are there that are “close” to contending (Cleveland’s out!). How many potential starting QBs are available? Not many. This combination drives the price up. All it takes is two teams to “fight” over one guy (in this case Seattle and AZ fighting over Kolb). I wouldn’t give up a first. But, if you think Kolb is the final piece like many do about Seattle and AZ, then it might be worth it. If I was Cleveland or Cincy, I wouldn’t give up a 1st because each of those teams need much more than Kevin Kolb to contend.

    What I believe you mean to say is Reid is an idiot but let’s hope he doesn’t blow this one.

    I really don’t understand the fascination with Vick? It’s like people are only judging him based on his performance in the Redskins game. He was terrible down the stretch falling back into all his bad habits. He had no pocket presence and was very inaccurate which is a true reflection of his overall play through out his career. He’s a great athlete and will have unreal games time to time but his overall body of work is average at best. I’d much rather trade Vick – who will 100% get hurt it’s just a matter of how badly – and keep Kolb who has 7+ years left playing in this league and is a perfect fit for the Eagles offense.

    You’re an idiot. Kolb started several games, and played well. He was going to be the starting QB until Vick caught fire. There is every indication that he is a starter in this league. No one is saying the guy is Joe Montana, but calling him “borderline awful” and saying you’d be happy with happy with a 7th round pick shows what a lack of knowledge and judgement you have.

    LOL. Vick was not “terrible” down the stretch at all. I was never a fan of the guy, but he was much different this year to say the least. In fact, I HATED his game until this year. He amazed even me. Four words: Miracle at the Meadowlands.

  46. laeaglefan says: Jul 3, 2011 10:19 AM

    Kolb is no more than an average NFL quarterback. Some games he looks good and some games he looks terrible. I think a lot depends on the defense he’s playing against. He’s looked good against weaker defenses, but can’t hold up to an aggressive pass rush.
    He doesn’t have the escapability that Vick has and tends to make mistakes when he’s under pressure.

  47. etoharin78 says: Jul 3, 2011 10:32 AM

    A 1st and 3rd does seem a little steep, but that’s a position that teams have always paid a steep price for, like pitchers in baseball and goaltenders in hockey. You can’t get even a decent QB without paying through the nose. I believe the Bears gave up the same for Cutler and he had proven little more than Kolb has thus far.

  48. edonovan23 says: Jul 3, 2011 11:02 AM

    trade kolb for at least a 1st rounder and then sign vince young as a backup

  49. hebephrenic says: Jul 3, 2011 11:03 AM

    I can’t see Kolb going for a first. I don’t see the value, but if someone pays it, hes obviously worth it. Looking back at those great games he had, they were up against some of the worst secondary’s in the league. Good luck to Kolb, the Eagles, and whatever team he eventually goes to.

    it was definitely vicks performance against the giants that won it. Vick got them the first 21 points. They would have won it in overtime anyway but Desean wanted to go home early so he got the last 7

    Let’s see…a 90.2 rating with 61.5 % efficiency, followed by a 97.6 rating with 60% efficiency. That’s “terrible?” What are you…on crack? And let me get this straight: Vick is not responsible for winning the Giants game, but he IS responsible for losing other two? No one is claiming he was great in the last two games, but he was far from “terrible.” He didn’t play his best and neither did the team. It happens.

    Oh, and re: the Giants. Vick was THE reason they were able to come back. If you don’t know that, then you didn’t watch the game.

    Kolb is no more than an average NFL quarterback. Some games he looks good and some games he looks terrible. I think a lot depends on the defense he’s playing against. He’s looked good against weaker defenses, but can’t hold up to an aggressive pass rush.
    He doesn’t have the escapability that Vick has and tends to make mistakes when he’s under pressure.

    I don’t think he looks terrible. In fact, I’ve never seen him look terrible, except for maybe the Green Bay game. And honestly, he didn’t have a chance in that one, because our line was horrid.

    @ bcgreg who on Jul 3, 2011 at 9:02 AM, said:

    “A deal can be agreed upon, but it isn’t official until the league signs off on it. The league won’t sign off on it until the 2 teams confirm the deal with the league. So Seattle can “offer’ 10 first round picks and the Eagles could agree. But, Seattle can back out of a deal up until the league signs off on it. That’s how they can drive up the price without fear of actually losing the “3 first round picks”. The problem with making an ‘offer’ like this isn’t that it would be accepted. It’s that your reputation takes a hit and you lose respect around the league where other teams won’t take you seriously or won’t even listen to you for any potential, future deals.”

    If this is true, I owe Gregg Rosenthal an apology – and my thanks to you for sharing some info I was never privy to.

    My (apparently erroneous) understanding was that when teams (just like all adults) – simply made clear that an offer was open – said offer was subject to being accepted prior to revocation.

    So thanks BCGreg for illuminating the matter – and a sincere “my bad” to Gregg Rosenthal.

    I’m not a hater, but I can’t see giving up a first round pick for kevin kobb. I just don’t see the value there. he plays on one of the best teams in the league, with a quarterback friendly system, and a terrific coach.

    i’m not saying he’s a dud, but if a team is looking for a savior, I can’t see it. if i was the seahawks, i would be calling up mike brown and seeing if they would take a 3rd for palmer.

    “He was terrible down the stretch falling back into all his bad habits. He had no pocket presence and was very inaccurate which is a true reflection of his overall play through out his career. ”

    What you fail to realize about Vick’s play down the stretch is that the Giants showed how to defense him after the first game and every team thereafter did exactly what New York did – blitz him hard from the left – he cannot run right and throw. He had to tuck the ball and run – which did give us more of a chance than taking a sack. What was missing was an effective blocking/passing scheme to slow down that blitz – not his fault…

    Imagine some more timing patterns – in the zone right where the blitz just vacated – to any of those speedsters we have – could be ugly! Also, would help if we could pound the ball between the tackles – keeping that blitz honest! Just saying…

    If the Seahawks give up a 1st and a 3rd for Hasselbeck Lite. I will not be watching the Hawks this year. No way they would make this trade when the guy has a 11tds to 14 ints ratio.
