Report: Kolb camp wants $30M guaranteed extension

Over and over again this offseason, I've said that no one's seen a bigger boost in their value than Kevin Kolb. That at this point all that value is squarely concentrated in terms of leverage against the Arizona Cardinals is neither here nor there.

But maybe Kolb's getting a little ahead of himself. See, according to a report from Sports Illustrated's Jim Trotter, Kolb's camp is demanding an extension when he's dealt that features $30 million in guaranteed money.

No, really.

Kolb obviously wants to be traded -- he's intimated as much before and he might not show up to Philly's training camp on Wednesday -- but he doesn't just want to get traded, apparently.

He also wants to get paid. And paid like he's one of the best players in the NFL.

Oh, and he wants the team that's about to give up a player like Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie as well a high draft pick in order to acquire him to do the paying. I mean, obviously he wants Arizona to cough up the cash, but it seems like Kolb's camp might be overstepping their bounds a bit on this issue.

Is Kolb worth the value discussed -- DRC plus a high draft pick -- in the potential deal? Maybe. We honestly don't know, and won't until (if?) we see him on the field for the Cardinals.

And, regardless of how much scouting they've done on Kolb, neither will they. Which is what makes a demand like $30 million guaranteed pretty ridiculous.

If Arizona doesn't land Corn Kolb for undeserved monies...Mr. Fitzgerald stated he wants OUT of Arizona.
What other QB out there will satisfy Larry besides Corn Kolb?

Slow done guys, Jim Trotter is SI's version of Mike Freeman. He is almost never right, and writes for shock value, and to express an opinion based off 100% ignorance.

Are you kidding me??? 30 million for Kevin Kolb...plus the Cards have to give up    I can safely say, even without being an expert, there's no way Kolb deserves that kind of money and if the Eagles are trying to make that deal stick, then they are smking something we don't know about. This guy has only started a few games, and is he really that good? The Cardinals should run and hide, and make a play for former Titans QB Vince Young before they make that deal. What an ego Kolb has...hilarious.

Report: Kolb camp wants $30M What a joke!

Here is another story on this pud who thinks he is the next Joe Montana.  How in the HELL does this guy think he deserves the "Elite" paycheck? This is no Manning or Brady, hell even Flacco for that matter, 30 million guaranteed for what, you've done nothing with consistency in this league yet. Leave this clown alone and let him sit on the bench in Philly.....30 million.....what a joke.

Arizona: This deal has gotten more and more freaking ridiculous with each day. First, the price was Kolb for a first-rounder. You should have walked. Then it became Kolb for DRC. You should have walked. Then it became Kolb for DRC and a draft pick. You should have walked. Then it became Kolb for DRC and a first or second round pick. You should have RUN.

Now Kolb wants $30 million guaranteed? For the love of God, RUN ALREADY! What the heck are you waiting for? Just stop taking any calls that have a 215 or 267 area code! Nothing good can come out of them.

Kevin Kolb has fast become one of the most overrated QBs in the NFL. I don't have a personal grudge against the guy and of course he obviously wants to get paid, but he hasn't done nearly enough to prove that he's worthy of a contract that gives him 30 million dollars of guaranteed money. Personally I think the Cardinals would be crazy to give him that kind of money in addition to trading Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a 2nd round draft pick, but that's just me. I'd rather keep Cromartie around as the eventual second cornerback across from Patrick Peterson (they'd make a great duo) and maybe take a shot with someone like Vince Young or even Marc Bulger for a year. If they don't work out, the Cards would always have the option of trying to get Andrew Luck or Landry Jones in the 2012 Draft as a long-term solution.
