- For those who are still speculating about whether the Eagles will keep QB Kevin Kolb, the Philadelphia Inquirer writes that Kolb is as good as gone when the lockout is lifted.
- … And speaking of places where Kolb might play next season, the Arizona Republic discusses how the Cardinals’ patience while waiting to sign a starting quarterback might just pay off. And maybe not taking a quarterback in the NFL draft was actually the smart plan all along.
- … And speaking of veteran quarterbacks, it seems the Bengals want one as well (to help mentor Andy Dalton, naturally). Of course, the list the Cincinnati Enquirer presents to us is less than impressive with names like Rex Grossman, Jim Sorgi and Charlie Frye.
- From the Miami Herald, here’s the latest on the Dolphins QB situation: “the chances of (Chad) Henne being the regular-season starter for Miami in 2011 are greater than the chances he is replaced.”
- The NFL.com’s Jason La Canfora talked to some league insiders who rated the best performances of last week’s draft. The Buccaneers got high marks for Adrian Clayborn and Da’Quan Bowers, and the Packers got positive press for a number of picks.
- The Ravens believe Joe Flacco is more than ready to take more responsibility for calling plays at the line of scrimmage. “This has to be Joe’s offense,” said GM Ozzie Newsome.
- If you’re the sixth quarterback taken in the NFL draft, that’s usually a bad sign. Right, John David Booty, Charlie Whitehurst and David Greene? Colin Kaepernick should take note.
