There has been substantial progress in recent hours between the Eagles and Cardinals on trade compensation for Kevin Kolb as well as a long term extension with the Cardinals. Expect a deal to be agreed to today.
Caplan's report comes on the heels of Howard Eskin saying that Kolb's agent is currently in negotiations with the Cardinals on a long term contract extension for Kolb. If things are at that point, it is probably safe to say that compensation between the Eagles and Cardinals is pretty much done.
So today looks to be the one where everything really kicks into gear for the Eagles. Training camp is officially underway, Jason Babin was the first major signing this morning and it appears as if Kevin Kolb for Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie and a draft pick will be the second major move of the day. Let's now hope a DeSean Jackson contract isn't far behind.
