Could Kevin Kolb return to Philadelphia?


Just when you thought that Michael Vick, Nick Foles, Dennis Dixon, Trent Edwards, G.J. Kinne, and potentially Geno Smith or E.J. Emmanuel, were enough Quarterback depth for Chip Kelly, ESPN’s John Clayton says an old friend could be returning to Philly. On this mornings edition of Sportscenter John Clayton was discussing potential destinations for Kevin Kolb, and I was half listening until Clayton said, “Kolb is waiting to see if he can get a deal in Buffalo, or even Philadelphia.” And since Clayton said that, about 20 minutes ago now, I have been trying to wrap my head around why Kolb would want to return to Philly, why the Eagles would have any interest, and how he could possibly fit into Chip Kelly’s system. And realistically I haven’t been able to answer any of those questions. So my guess is either that John Clayton mistakenly said Philadelphia, or it was just pure speculation on his part, not that the speculation would make any sense, but there is no way Kolb returns to Philly. There is absolutely no more room for a mediocre pocket passer on the Eagles depth-chart, and there is no reason that Kolb would want to come to Philly when places like Oakland, Buffalo, and even New York (Jets), would give him a chance to be a starter. If I were a betting man, Kevin Kolb will end up with the Bills, but the fact that John Clayton even mentioned the Eagles as a possibility is puzzling.
