Kevin Kolb picked up right where he left of last season, tossing an interception in his first preseason attempt. Then, he suffered a rib contusion and left the game. The former “future franchise quarterback” in Philly is about to lose his job to John Skelton forever.
At least Kolb got paid for his mediocre career.
Kevin Kolb bonuses: $10.7M signing bonus from PHI in 2010; $10M signing bonus from AZ in 2011; $7M option bonus from AZ in 2012.

That’s $27.7 million in bonuses for a guy who has 20 TDs and 22 INTs in 28 career games, just 16 of which were starts. Kolb played in just nine games last year due to injuries including a concussion.
Kolb was traded to Philly for Domonique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second round pick (Mychal Kendricks).
This is just another instance in which Andy Reid and the Eagles got the better of a team for a scrub quarterback. In the past A.J. Feeley was dealt for a second round pick.
What will Mike Kafka bring in a trade next year?
