08:03 AM ET 03.25 | How soon after a labor agreement will the floodgates open for offers on Kevin Kolb? Kolb can't be traded until the current work stoppage is resolved. But that seems to be only a matter of time with one-third of 32 teams possibly seeking a quarterback upgrade, including three of four teams in the NFC West. Question is, what is the blue-book value for the 26-year-old Kolb? [Andy] Reid compared Kolb to Seattle quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, the former Green Bay Packers backup Reid coached when then Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren was seeking a starter in 2001. "I know Kevin is a quarterback who can win a championship," Reid said. ... So what's going on [with Seattle]? Any conversation with the Eagles? "There's no conversation going on," Carroll said. Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt was similarly careful when asked about Kolb. "To be honest with you, he is a player that is under contract with another team," Whisenhunt said.

Andy Reid loves options, whether it's Kolb trade scenarios or all you can eat buffets.

A flood? Sorry, but will probably be more of a trickle.

Agreed, and most will start with a second round pick.

Sounds like Andy should hire one of those professional auctioneers to get the highest bid for Kolb.

Man those Eagles can sell ice to an eskimo...

And still get more for the ice than they could ever get for Kolb.

Blue book value = '08 Saturn that chokes and sputters when it gets on the road.

Starting bid is 50 cents.

Will be interesting to see what offers the Eagels get for Kolb. I doubt they would get a 1st round pick. Best bet a 2nd round at best

That's all they should hope for.

If you look at his career stats a 2nd rounder is much too high.

Kolb is no Mike Vick, I seriously doubt it that the Eagles will get a flood of offers. Maybe for the Bengals, but not the Eagles.

I say a 6th or 7th rounder, because that's the kind of talent he has.

50 Cent? You're offering to trade a rapper for a quarterback?

"I know Kevin is a quarterback who can win a championship," Reid said.

And you replaced him with a guy who is five years older because?

Yeah, but I'd guess they'll get a 1st for him. Too many teams need a starting quarterback, even a mediocre one, a term which suits Kolb pretty well. We know he's not a total bust, and he's ready to drive off the lot. You can't say that about any draft pick.

Teams need a starter, and they need one NOW, or whenever the season starts. Supply and demand. Until they start making cheap quarterbacks in Korea, the price will remain excessive.

exactly you beat me to it

March 25, 2011  08:52 AM ET

I wouldn't take him as a starter.

With a qb rating of 76 and more picks than td's? I don't think dumbest owner is THAT dumb.
