Schefter: Eagles And Cardinals Discussed Kevin Kolb Deal On Day One Of Draft

In his mailbag this morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter claimed that not only did he think a deal with the Cardinals for Kevin Kolb will ultimately happen, but that the teams actually talked about a deal during the first day of the draft.

The Cardinals and Eagles were allowed to discuss a deal at various points this offseason, including the first day of the draft. Arizona had the chance to draft Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert in Round 1 -- and passed. That tells me that the Cardinals believe they can find a way to land Kolb once trades are allowed

In one sense, it's odd to think the Eagles and Cardinals would be talking about a trade they weren't allowed to make on the first day of the draft. However, if the Cardinals were trying to nail down a price for Kolb, it would make sense that they would weigh that against the cost of spending the #5 pick on a QB or potentially trying to trade down. Schefter takes the fact that Arizona opted not to select a QB as a sign that they are set on Kolb...

Obviously, it remains to be seen whether that's true. Still, it is interesting to hear that teams are talking about the framework of deals that can't be made until the lockout is lifted. It really makes you wonder how nuts it's going to be when business resumes in the NFL.
