ESPN reports that despite not wanting to be on the Eagles this year unless he’s a starter, Kevin Kolb was working out with his teammates on Thursday.
Quarterback Kevin Kolb joined his Philadelphia Eagles teammates in informal workouts Thursday for the first time during the lockout. Whether they’ll be his teammates once the lockout ends still is up in the air. Kolb, who has requested a trade from the Eagles so he can be a starter next season, told reporters that coach Andy Reid told him in a text message: “I’ll do what’s best for you” once the lockout ends. Reid said earlier this month that the Eagles didn’t have any serious talks with other teams regarding Kolb before the lockout. “You have an idea of who’s interested in quarterbacks, but you couldn’t do any deals then. You never got to that point where it’s real serious; it was too far in advance,” Reid said, according to the Philadelphia Daily News. “And you can’t talk at all now. So, if he ends up going somewhere, more power to him, he deserves that opportunity. But I also like him here.” Kolb said it’s been “pretty tough” dealing with his uncertain future but that he has “voiced my opinion. There’s nothing else I can do.”
