Kevin Kolb Coming to Arizona; Cardinals Send Rodgers-Cromartie to Philadelphia for Eagles Backup QB

Arizona Cardinals new QB Kevin Kolb
The Arizona Cardinals have apparently found their quarterback: soon-to-be former Philadelphia Eagles backup QB Kevin Kolb.

Kolb reportedly has agreed to a five-year deal worth up to $63 million, with about $20 million in guarantees. In exchange for Kolb, the Cardinals have sent Pro Bowl cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second-round pick to the Eagles.

League rules prevent Kolb from actually signing the contract until tomorrow, but multiple media reports seem to think it's a done deal.

"I heard he's a great guy and I'm sure he'll make our team better," fellow Cardinals quarterback John Skelton told Cardinals news blogger Darren Urban. "I'm just going to go in and compete and I'm sure we'll make each other better."

Last season, Kolb completed 115 of 189 passes for a total of 1,197 yards in five games played. He also threw seven interceptions, which led to a passer rating of 76.1.

A press conference with Cards coach Ken Whisenhunt and general manager Rod Graves is set for later this afternoon. Check back for updates.

My Voice Nation Help

Hey proud Valley resident of 9 years and sad to report this has happened: Right now I have a pending law suit with Maricopa Community College for a sum of $2,500.00 because they failed to return a loan that I took out in 2008; three years ago. The school didn't return it until September of 2011 and didn't let me know about it. I finally found out that I was in default for $3,500.00 (full amount of my loan) while looking at my credit score in July of 2011. They finally returned the loan back to the lender (after months of phone calls; I even had to make a complaint to the Attorney General's office Tom Horne) but they never took responsibility for the $800.00 dollars in interest that the collection agency made me pay in order to get federal student aid for college again! They were to blame for this and even admitted it. I think this is something serious to consider for every student looking to take out a loan with Maricopa Community College seeing as though I'm amoung the thousands that this is happening to right now with Maricopa Community Colleges.
