Michael Vick has been organizing workouts for the Eagles’ offensive skill position players over the last couple of weeks. But today it wasn’t Vick running the show. It was the man Vick replaced as the Eagles’ starting quarterback — and probably pushed out of town.
Kevin Kolb was back in Philadelphia and throwing to teammates today, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
McLane writes that Kolb didn’t have much to say about his situation, which is understandable as Kolb doesn’t know much about his situation: The Eagles will try to trade him when the lockout ends, but Kolb has no idea when that will be, where he might be traded, or how likely it is that the Eagles will decide to hold onto him as Vick’s backup.
Kolb, however, said he figured that with nothing to do during the lockout, he’d come to Philadelphia and join his (for now) teammates. Kolb and third-string (for now) quarterback Mike Kafka handled the throwing today. Vick skipped the workout for a speaking engagement.
