Seattle is out of the Kevin Kolb race

DeSean Jackson, Kevin Kolb AP

Tarvaris Jackson is headed to the Seahawks.

While Seattle should be in the market for another quarterback to join Charlie Whitehurst and Jackson, that quarterback will not be Kevin Kolb. Jason La Canfora has confirmed what seemed clear enough: The Seahawks are out of the Kevin Kolb sweepstakes.

Don’t underestimate the impact this will make on the Eagles and Cardinals.  Philadelphia just lost major leverage in their pursuit to deal Kolb. We haven’t heard of any other team willing to make a significant offer for Kolb.

The Cardinals have other options, primarily Kyle Orton and Matt Hasselbeck. It makes sense that the Eagles aren’t rushing into anything with Kolb, but they also don’t want to be too patient and get caught missing out on a deal.

    Of course they’re out! They found their franchise QB in TJ.

    God forbid the eagles don’t trade Kolb and have a legit backup for their injury prone starter.

  3. trbowman says: Jul 26, 2011 6:23 PM

    Never thought he was going to Seattle, but it does hurt Philly.

    Let’s go!

    Worse comes to worse, the Eagles will keep Kolb. They won’t give him away.

    Although, I think he’s overvalued at this time.

  5. johnnyjagfan says: Jul 26, 2011 6:25 PM

    So Tavaris Jackson is the answer? Mercy. This can’t be over…

  6. birdobeamen says: Jul 26, 2011 6:26 PM

    I said this before, I’ll say it again.

    Dealing Kolb would be a great thing.

    Not dealing Kolb would be a great thing.

    With the way Vick plays…….nuff said.

  7. december77 says: Jul 26, 2011 6:27 PM

    Keep Kolb! Sign Nnamdi.

  8. eaglessuperfan says: Jul 26, 2011 6:28 PM

    I think at this moment they seem to be outhinking themselves. DRC is a playmaker in a need position. If you watched the eagles last year you know that they need playmakers. They have alot of decent young players and just need a couple playmakers. I hope to hear they have pulled the trigger by tomorrow and maybe with a 3-4 round pick in addition. I mean Kolb is a QB that has had some pretty impressive games so far. They should be able to shake that loose at least.

  9. nfl25 says: Jul 26, 2011 6:31 PM

    eagles will keep kolb and franchise him next year and trade him. cardinals will suck just like they always do, sorry except that one year they went 8 and 8 and got the superbowl

  10. whoknowsnothing says: Jul 26, 2011 6:31 PM

    Eagles blew their chance at a first and third round pick by not trading Kolb to Seattle. I hope the Cardinals trade for Orton and only give up a third round pick.

  11. johnnyjagfan says: Jul 26, 2011 6:36 PM

    really, I mean, this can’t be over. It ain’t just Charlie and TJack going to camp to see who starts. These guys have to have a trick up their sleeve.

  12. phillychzstk2012 says: Jul 26, 2011 6:36 PM

    just get DRC and a mid pick!

  13. tsimnuj99 says: Jul 26, 2011 6:38 PM

    Seems like Seattle is shooting for the Andrew luck sweep stakes

  14. jenniferxxx says: Jul 26, 2011 6:38 PM

    What happened to all those #1 picks Kolb was supposed to bring?

  15. chipwade says: Jul 26, 2011 6:38 PM

    Seattle should have traded Whitehurst and a bag of used Shawn Kemp condoms for Kolb. Although they would have had a rough go of it tracking down used Kemp condoms :/

  16. dwoofer says: Jul 26, 2011 6:41 PM

    Kolb hands off to Beanie wells for a 26-yard TD scamper. Yeah………

  17. winksterworld says: Jul 26, 2011 6:41 PM

    Tavaris Jackson! Looks like the Seahawks will be in great position to solve their QB situation…with Andrew Luck.

  18. xpensivewinos says: Jul 26, 2011 6:43 PM

    How is it exactly that a quarterback is going to get traded to a new team six weeks before the season starts, learn a new offense, get his timing down with guys he’s never played with before and be expected to be effective?

    It’s in Philly’s best interest to trade Kolb before he walks, but for any team to think he’s going to come in and be a miracle worker this year, they’re crazy.

  19. abcdjcrews says: Jul 26, 2011 6:45 PM

    The signed Matt Leinart too!?!? When will the jokes stop? Is the the NCAA able to revoke the 2010 Divsion Champion title if they pick up Reggie Bush? My Hawks are destined to run ahead of the pack in the Luck Sweepstakes!

  20. bobnelsonjr says: Jul 26, 2011 6:45 PM

    Bevell is going to get fired over this.

    When the pressure is on and the team needs a big drive, Jackson gets “hurt”. He cannot handle any pressure.

    Tarvaris Jackson will be “hurt” before week 4.
    He has never played in more than 8 consecutive games in 5 years.

    Poor Pete Carroll will have to explain many times why Tarvaris can’t learn the playbook and why the Seahawks HAVE TO run such a simplified offense.

    Seattle is going to hate the jump pass real soon.

    The Seahawks have really set their franchise backwards with this really stupid decision.

  21. realitypolice says: Jul 26, 2011 6:49 PM

    ESPN is announcing that the Seahawks have also signed Matt Leinart.

    That’s some depth chart you’ve got there, Hawk fans.

  22. hansenbrothers says: Jul 26, 2011 6:49 PM

    Philly should keep Kolb, who’s longer term value would be higher and trade Vick, who’s short term value would be higher. But since I hate the Eagles…go on and trade Kolb!

  23. rodgerthat says: Jul 26, 2011 6:52 PM

    So let me get this straight……..One of the early moves in free agency is TJack to the Seahawks and now they are out of the Kolb race? lmmfao!!!!! If anything they are more in the Kolb race now then they were before! Tjack and Chuckie Whitehurst…….. hahahahahaha there is no way that is how they go into training camp. At the very least Matt has to stay now out of pure sympathy for that poor franchise.

  24. knucklebucket says: Jul 26, 2011 6:52 PM

    This has to be bad for Philly but to be completely honest i couldn’t care less about this particular deal. It’s just so nice to mbe reading about deals and training camps vs the lockout bs we have been subjected to over the last 4 months.

  25. cowboysfan18 says: Jul 26, 2011 6:54 PM

    There’s waaaay too much hype on Kolb. I don’t think he would have thrown for 300 yds against the saints if they weren’t forced to…unless you count the return yds for Sharper on ANOTHER one of Kolb’s pick sixes.

  26. sdffa11 says: Jul 26, 2011 6:54 PM

    another exmaple of reid screwing up a trade possibilities due to his ridiculous demands. (e.g. sheldon brown, lito sheppard trade a few years ago)

  27. fifthorkid says: Jul 26, 2011 6:58 PM

    Matt Leinart also signed with Seattle. Makes sense he did that to reunite with Carroll.

  28. vbe2 says: Jul 26, 2011 6:59 PM

    It might be better for the Eagles to keep Kolb. Vick WILL miss at least a couple games in 2011.

    dont worry its not over…..Seattle just brought in Matt Leinart….now its officially over!

  30. stealthhawk says: Jul 26, 2011 7:14 PM

    I wish people would freaking relax. The ‘Hawks signing these guys in no way means they think they’re “the answer”. It means they’re going to push Whitehurst to win the starting job and if they all fail they’ll take one of the top QB’s next year.

    It’s clear that the Eagles are being little bitches about Kolb and nobody wants to pay their price. I bet Arizona opts for Orton and screws over the Eagles royally.

  31. calihawk says: Jul 26, 2011 7:19 PM

    Maybe the 49ers can sign Hasselbeck so my Hawks can sign Alex Smith too.

    that idea right there shows a complete misunderstanding of Andy Reid and what hes willing to do.

    He doesnt just want a first rounder or significant player value in return for Kolb because hes “being a little bitch” (I guess nowdays being a little bitch is defined as not handing over something thats yours just because someone else wants it but isnt willing to pay…..sounds backwards to me LOL)…..its because that is where he values Kolb and wont settle for giving him away.

    The Cardinals, Seahawks and any other team can do nothing to “screw the Eagles royally” in relation to Kolb. Reid knows he has a dynamic but very injury prone QB who subjects himself to huge hits. You act as if the Cards and Seahawks coming in with weakass lowball offers then backing off screws Reid—-like he has to take something for Kolb. Yea, because having a player that knows this system front to back completely, all the players and has played at a high level the majority of time to back up a All Pro but very injury prone QB is the definition of “getting screwed”……oh no, its too much, we must trade Kolb—lets give him away or we’re screwed. Oh no, thats right, lets just do what we planned to and test the market and if the offers dont come in keep him and have great depth and ability at the most important position in the league for 2011. WE’RE SCREWED!!! WHY DID WE HAVE TO BE SUCH LITTLE BITCHES AND NOT GIVE KOLB AWAY TO THESE SUCK-ASS TEAMS???!? lmao

  33. We'reFineThere says: Jul 26, 2011 7:54 PM

    It made sense to trade Kolb during the draft but if we can’t get something decent from Arizona (the player or a 1) they should just keep him. We’d have to sign some turd like Vince Young anyway.

    Why? You want to root for Andrew Luck in two years?

    Awesome comment, eaglesdynasty! “Why did we have be such little bitches”, classic.
