How about Kevin Kolb for backup QB?

Kevin Kolb is about to be released by the Cardinals.

Anyway, how about Kevin Kolb as a backup for Drew Brees? Too expensive?

Then again, the Raiders might seek him out as their starter since they don't have a real strong slate of quarterbacks currently. I always liked Carson Palmer, but he seems to be on the downside of his career.

In any case, wouldn't Kolb be an excellent backup if he doesn't land as a starter somewhere?

Thoughts?

Oh and I still think we should make an effort to get Kerry Rhodes, also released from the Cardinals.

Re: How about Kevin Kolb for backup QB?

Geez, guys, what you think, that we're gonna trade out draft away for Tom Brady to back up Drew?! C'mon. Kolb is a very serviceable backup, particularly when he's healthy (which he hasn't been in AZ while he and the stable of QBs there were getting sacked to death). He has shown that if you give him a couple seconds in the pocket and some decent receivers then he can do something decent. It's all about coaching, too. I don't think that anyone would argue that Andy Reid and Sean Payton aren't much better coaches than Ken Whisenhunt. I wouldn't mind seeing Kolb get a chance in the black & gold as long as the price is right.

I also wouldn't mind seeing Cassel or Leinhart get a shot. All at the right price of course.

Kolb is garbage..
1. Can't stay healthy. if we ever need him he'll get hurt so i have zero faith in the guy
2. Even when he is healthy the guy is very timid... can't have that in your QB... ever
3. The guy flat out quit on his team in Arizona... doesn't speak much about his work ethic.

Pass, pass and pass...
I'd rather a rookie out of college or Sean Canfield

I confused him earlier with another QB........but I've always liked Kolb. He played hatd against us in Philly I think.
