Kolb traded, wearing red again and at the top of the depth chart


Former UH quarterback Kevin Kolb was traded by the Philadelphia Eagles to the Arizona Cardinals for cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a 2012 second round pick on Thursday.

Kolb will reportedly sign a five year, $63 million contract with the Cardinals, $23 million of which is guaranteed. He projects as the Cardinals starter this season.

Kolb was drafted in the second round of the 2007 draft by the Eagles and deemed Donovan McNabb’s successor. Kolb was strong in his two starts replacing an injured McNabb in 2009, throwing for over 300 yards and two touchdowns in each game. He was the first quarterback to achieve the feat in his first two starts.

He entered last season as the Eagles starter after they dealt McNabb to the Redskins, but suffered a concussion in Week 1 against the Packers and lost his starting job to Michael Vick. Vick experienced injuries as well and Kolb went 2-3 as a starter last season. He finished the year with 1,197 yards and seven touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Kolb started four years for the Cougars and took them to three bowl games.

Rodgers-Cromartie, a 2009 pro bowler, will help an Eagles pass defense that tied for the third most passing touchdowns allowed last season.
