Eagles QB Kevin Kolb, whose future as a starter in Philadelphia became very uncertain following the re-emergence of Michael Vick, now seems pretty adamant about being a starter in 2011, whether it’s with the Eagles or for another NFL club.
Philadelphia Inquirer reporter Jeff McLane is reporting that Kolb will have his exit interview with Andy Reid some time today (Monday) to better ascertain his future with the team and whether or not he has a chance to be the starting QB in 2011. From the outside looking in it appears unlikely with the season that Vick put together, his final game Sunday notwithstanding.
Kolb is under contract with the Eagles through 2011 while Vick’s contract is up, though it’s widely believed the Eagles will re-sign him. No matter what the situation in Philly, Kolb has made it clear he does not want to be a backup next season. When asked what the best case scenario would be for him in 2011, Kolb was succinct.
“To start,” he told the Philadelphia Inquirer. “I love it here, as everybody knows. My family’s settled in here. I would love to be starting here. But I want to be starting somewhere.”
It’s believed if the Eagles did decide to move Kolb it would not be for anything less than a first-round draft choice.
