John Clayton of ESPN.com takes a look at possible suitors for Eagles QB Kevin Kolb, and what it might take to prey him away from Philly. Clayton lists the Arizona Cardinals as the leading team to make a pitch for the promising passer, at 2-1 odds. He has the Seahawks at 10-1, offering: “Pete Carroll has said he’s interested in Kolb, but will the Seahawks offer a first-round pick to acquire him? At the very least, they can stay in the bidding and make the Cardinals pay more for Kolb.”
Playing off Clayton’s story, ESPN.com NFC West blogger Mike Sando has a poll asking how much the Cardinals or Seahawks should pay for Kolb. You can vote here.
Sando also has a quarter breakdown of when the NFC West sack leaders generated them last season. The Seahawks’ Chris Clemons led the division with 11, and five came in the third quarter.
Pat Kirwan at NFL.com ranks the league’s QBs and has Hasselbeck at No. 22, in Group E that also includes David Garrard, Chad Henne, Donovan McNabb and Matthew Stafford, offering: “He had seven touchdowns to one interception in the playoffs and still has some tread left on the tires. He’s a free agent and hopefully he stays in Seattle. His 11 postseason games, including a trip to the Super Bowl, is the kind of experience a team will need if the lockout goes deep into the summer.” Kirwan has Kolb at No. 28, in Group F.
