It’s been reported that Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson won’t be reporting to training camp. Another fairly high-profile players also won’t be there on Thursday.
Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that quarterback Kevin Kolb won’t show up, due to ongoing trade talks.
McLane also reports that a trade that would send Kolb to the Cardinals for cornerback Domonique Rodgers-Cromartie and draft picks is being worked out.
It’s unclear whether Kolb’s failure to report will be excused by the team.
For weeks if not longer, many had presumed that a trade sending Kolb to the Cardinals was a done deal. As we pointed out last night, if it truly were a done deal, the deal would be done by now.
