The most prominent rumor of the offseason is that Kevin Kolb, currently of the Eagles, will end up on the Arizona Cardinals within a very short time after the lockout ends.

It's a done deal as far as many folks go, and it's simply a matter of what -- not when -- the two teams will trade.

But Ken Wisenhunt pointed out that he's a little surprised by all the chatter surrounding his team and the interest in Kolb, particularly the recent rumors that the team would give up Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie in exchange.

"I don't even know where that speculation started about trading or what we're going to give up," Wisenhunt said, per Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. "We don't even know if [the Eagles) are willing to do that. That's something that everybody speculates on."
Kevin Kolb: So Hot Right Now

Wisenhunt also mocked the speculation that occurred with quarterback Marc Bulger, who'd been rumored to already have a deal with the Cards and also not even interested in Arizona.

But, more importantly, Somers notes that Wisenhunt doesn't believe anyone on the Cardinals roster is "untouchable" when it comes to making a deal.

Of course, that's what everyone usually says when discussing the possibility of making a blockbuster deal. But it's also indicative of just how badly the Cardinals need a quarterback.

And exactly why Kolb's practically already pencilled on on the Arizona depth chart.

Wisenhunt: No one on Cards' roster 'untouchable'

This sounds more like a positioning statement against another team that is bidding. Either they are say "no matter what you offer, we can top it, don't waste your time", or their attempting to make another team (Seahawks) over spend to get the QB they want....coming in on the back side and getting Hasselback. Rumors are going around the Seahawks offered up a 1st rounder plus ofcourse the Eagles would push a Cardinals "hype" deal, to get more from Seattle and AZ is playing along...or the Cards are just bidding against themselves. I think they pusue Orton/Hass myself and develop Skelton. This route helps the Cards tell fans...they wanted too much and we believe in Skelton the fan favorite.

Wisenhunt: No one on Cards' roster 'untouchable'

nobody is "untouchable" on this roster! wow like that is big news around the league--what about DA--surely a guy caught laughing on the sidelines while his team is getting their a$$ handed to them again then claims--I take this sh** seriuosly MAN! cant be on the trading block. say it aint so coach Wiz--there must be at least 5-7 teams in the arena league that would scoop up this quality talent in a heartbeat.  What an idiotic thing to say out loud that nobody on this team is untouchable--outside of Fitz-they are only untouchable because they are so bad that no team would touch them coach
