Peter King: "Reid already has one team willing to offer a first-round pick for Kolb"

In Peter King's Monday Morning QB column, King has an exciting report that one team has already made an offer to the Eagles for a 1st round pick, and that the Eagles are now looking for better offers, Sotheby's style:

Andy Reid apparently is serious about trading Kevin Kolb. At the NFL meetings Sunday, a good source told me Reid already has one team willing to offer a first-round pick for Kolb, and now he's looking for a team with a higher choice in the round to make him a better deal.

My take: I'd trade a very high draft pick to acquire Kolb instead of drafting one of the quarterbacks available this year. I'd want to reduce the risk of making a mistake high in the draft by taking the safe guy with ability? Kolb's 26. He's a coach's son. He's had some struggles running the Eagles offense in his seven career starts, but I saw him ruin the soon-to-be Super Bowl champion Saints with a 391-yard strafing in 2009; he played well enough to rout the playoff-bound Falcons and throw for 326 yards last season.

We've seen him do it. All the rookies have question marks. I know I'd sleep better at night with Kolb on my team this summer.

(more after the jump)...

If this report is true and Reid is indeed "looking for a team with a higher round choice," it could be an indication that the team in question is the Seahawks, who hold the 25th pick in the first round this year.  Here are the QB needy teams (arguably in some cases) with first round picks this year.  Who could it be?

Team Draft position
Seahawks 25
Jaguars 16
Dolphins 15
Vikings 12
Redskins 10
Titans 8
49ers 7
Browns 6
Cardinals 5
Bengals 4
Bills 3
Broncos 2
Panthers 1

Can we get this pesky labor thing settled, please?
