Eagles Want a Number One Draft Pick for Kolb

The Pioneer Press reports that the Eagles are looking for nothing less than a #1 pick for backup QB Kevin Kolb, who could be a target of the Vikings.

Eagles backup Kevin Kolb, who would be the Vikings’ best QB option among those expected to be available and who wants to be traded, probably would cost Minnesota a first-round draft pick. The Broncos are believed to be seeking a second-round pick for Kyle Orton, who is to be paid $8.5 million next season. The Vikings, who are without a third-round draft pick and have plenty of holes (safety, offensive and defensive line) to fill, can’t afford not to have first- and third-round picks in April’s draft. Compounding the Vikings’ QB predicament is that trades and free-agent signings are not allowed without an NFL labor agreement, and that deal expires on March 3.
