Don Banks of Sports Illustrated says the Seattle Seahawks are not necessarily playing down their interest in Philadelphia reserve quarterback Kevin Kolb.
The Eagles reportedly already have received an offer of a first round pick for Kolb’s services, and speculation has it that team is Seattle.
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll was asked about his team’s interest in Kolb during the NFL owners meeting this week, and did not flatly deny that there was any truth to the speculation that Seattle was interested in Kolb, leading Banks to believe that the Seahawks are the leader in the clubhouse.
“It’s good that people think that,” Carroll told reporters, of the rumors linking No. 25 Seattle to Kolb. “Because every opportunity that’s available, we investigate. We want to (take) every opportunity, and that’s one that’s been out there. They’ve said he’s a guy they would possibly move. So those kind of discussions, it doesn’t matter where it’s coming from, we’re trying to be privy to all of it. We just want to know what’s going on.”
“Anybody who comes through Andy’s program has been through a great system, with great coaching and leadership and direction and all of that,” Carroll went on to say. “And that adds to the value of the player, rather than (getting) a guy who’s coming fresh out of college.”
