Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt has heard all the rumors. Maybe Kevin Kolb will be his quarterback this season. Maybe the Cardinals will get Kolb by trading away Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Maybe the Cardinals already have an understanding with Marc Bulger, or maybe Bulger doesn’t want to play in Arizona.
Whisenhunt says all those rumors have one thing in common: They’re way too premature to be taken seriously.
“I don’t even know where that speculation started about trading or what we’re going to give up,” Whisenhunt told the Arizona Republic. “We don’t even know if [the Eagles] are willing to [trade Kolb]. That’s something that everybody speculates on.”
Whisenhunt says it annoys him that there were rumors a few months ago of a deal with Bulger already being essentially done.
“And yet yesterday there was a report that [Bulger] didn’t even want to come here, to Arizona,” Whisenhunt said. “So which one is it? Is it, we’ve already worked a deal under the table or is it he does not want to come here?”
Whisenhunt acknowledges, however, that trading for a quarterback is a possibility, and that the Cardinals would consider trading anyone on their current roster if they got the right deal. That should be enough for us to continue the speculation.
What else are we supposed to do until the lockout ends?
