K. Kolb (US Presswire)
The list of teams interested in Kevin Kolb continues to grow. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Bengals are now intrigued by the Eagles quarterback.

Schefter points out that Cincy’s new receivers coach, James Urban, was Philly’s quarterback coach last season. Kolb, 26, figures to garner a mid-first-round pick in a trade. The Bengals currently hold the No. 4 pick overall. For these purposes, that may be irrelevant considering trades are prohibited during the lockout.

Kolb would be a good fit in new offensive coordinator Jay Gruden’s system. Gruden runs a West Coast catch-and-run type passing attack that is similar to his brother’s and similar to that of his brother’s former colleague, Andy Reid.

The Kolb-to-Cincy rumor has any legs, then this might be the strongest indication yet that the Bengals are willing cave on Carson Palmer’s trade demand.

   I guess that Jay Gruden is Jon Gruden's brother. I didn't know he had a brother at the level of the NFL.

Report: Bengals interested in Kolb

As for the Scott Mitchell stuff.. 1) Kolb is a very down to earth person, Mitchell was and still is a complete tool. 2) when tabbing someone as the "second coming" you really think Mitchell was the first? There have been plenty of traded QBs not work out, Picking just two and tossing them in a pot is really idiotic. I dont know if Kolb will make it or not but the simple fact is that he is ready and able for his chance, which is a big edge on a rookie. Not many rookies are at that point. The eagles are smart enough to know they get Vick to sign an extention before trading Kolb and if that means they have to deal for 2012 draft picks after the draft then they will do just that. They dont rush into anything. Kolb waited for his turn and deserves the opportunity. I dont EVER remember Scott Mitchell throwing 325 yards two games in a row.

Only the Lions would pick up a bum like Mitchell after 8 so-so games in Miami. Kolb at least fits a west coast style game, it's what he put up 300 + yard games in Philly in. I'd be worried that he's gonna get killed behind that line. If they land A.J. Green and Kolb then good riddance to Palmer, who hasn't done squat for years, and hello to a faster recovery offensively.

I dont understand why everyone is afraid to give the number 4 draft pick for Kolb. Kolb has proved that he can be an effective starter by being the only QB ever to have two 300 yard passing games in his first 2 games. While I will admit that is just a sample size, it at least shows that he gets it. What if we draft Cam Newton in the first round, wouldnt that be risking a high draft pick on an unknown? I guarantee that if the rookie pay scale isnt in place that we would have a lengthy contract dispute with this guy.

I just dont understand why teams wont give up a draft pick for a more established player that they have actually scene, and hold it for a pipe dream. Do it Mike Brown Please!

Kolb WILL be traded but I dont think cincy will pull the trigger on this. They have to high of a draft pick and really need help on the D side of the ball. I think kolb goes to a team that is picking 12-19th in the draft.  As an eagle fan i actually hope we keep kolb. Vic is set to miss at least 2-3 games with his playstyle and i would want somebody with exp in the system to come in and lead the team. Philly HAS to be thinking about this. Vick said he can't change how he plays the game which is fine with me so long as the eagles have a good plan B , and if you have seen vick play you know a plan B is a reality.

Philly may not budge though unles they get a REALLY high draft pick. Pretty much they are in a win/win. You trade Kolb you get a high pick, and if you dont you have someone who has proven they can manage the offense and make a few plays now and then. Kolb has surprising escape ability and he has played with those young guys for a while now. I'm a lot more comfortable with kolb in the eagles offense then i was at first glance.

I really hope the bengals do get him so the Seahawks don't waste picks on another scrub. The Seahawks need to see what they have in Charlie "Manson" Whitehurst before going all in on another mediocre QB. A lot of this Kolb Hype is being drummed up by Philie to drive his value up. Until he proves himself he isn't worth what they are asking. heck, he couldn't beat out Vick who had been away from the game for a couple of years and although improved his passing still isnt stellar. To each their own I guess.
