Kevin Kolb released by Arizona Cardinals

USA TODAY Sports

The trade that sent Kevin Kolb and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to different cities has now officially ended for one of those teams. Jason "No one wants to work with Howie" LaConfora reports that Kevin Kolb has officially been cut by the Arizona Cardinals. It's fitting that Kolb would be cut in the same offseason as the man he was traded for (DRC) was let go. That just seems to be the story of former Eagles 2nd round pick.

Kolb was in Philadelphia to start his career and had mixed results as a backup and eventual starter. While he has proven to be injury-prone, Kolb did have some very good performances that led to early season wins for Arizona. He is likely to be considered the best WCO quarterback in free agency and it probably would not shock anyone if he wound up with the New York Jets and Marty Mornhinweg, who is now their offensive coordinator.

The Eagles-side of the trade took a hit earlier this offseason when DRC was not resigned and he ultimately ended up in Denver. Still, the 2nd round pick that was traded along with DRC for Kolb, turned into Vinny Curry and Brandon Boykin in last year's draft. Both seem prime to have solid seasons this year, after showing flashes of potential in 2012. So technically, the Eagles won that trade.
