Source: Kolb, Fitzgerald set up private session

July 22 Foxsports.com 

If the Arizona Cardinals complete a long-rumored trade for Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb, training camp won’t mark the first time Kolb has thrown passes to Pro Bowl receiver Larry Fitzgerald.  A source familiar with the situation told FOXSportsArizona.com that Fitzgerald and Kolb organized a private throwing session inside Arizona State University’s Verde Dickey Center (the football team’s practice bubble) earlier this month. That would require advance planning by — and approval of — the university.

Ken Whisenhunt on Cardinals trading for QB: No one is untouchable

July 21 Arizona Republic

Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie might be the fastest player on the Arizona Cardinals roster, but he can’t out-run reports and speculation that he’ll be traded to the Philadelphia Eagles for quarterback Kevin Kolb whenever a new collective bargaining agreement is reached.  Finding a starting quarterback is the Cardinals top priority this off-season, and team officials know they will pay a premium if that quarterback is acquired via trade.  Rodgers-Cromartie might be part of that premium.

Several Eagles discuss lockout

July 22 Camden Courier-Post

Offensive guard Danny Watkins, the Eagles’ first-round pick, suspected earlier this week that NFL owners and their locked-out players were on the brink of an agreement.  “I felt it was time to come out here,” said Watkins, who arrived at his suburban New Jersey home Wednesday after more than 48 hours of navigating a moving van from Texas along with his girlfriend and two golden retrievers. After a series of grueling workouts Thursday, the rookie looked ahead to working with new offensive line coach Howard Mudd and the rest of the Eagles’ coaching staff.

Let’s assume we’re finally able to put the litigation and mediation behind us.  We’re able to talk football again – isn’t that refreshing? – and focus our attention on what is sure to be a frenzied free-agent market. The Eagles’ biggest need is a quality veteran to play right cornerback. At the moment they have, well, no one.  So let’s take a look at the top five cornerback prospects and gauge the likelihood they could be coming to the Eagles.

Parker ready to reunite with Washburn

July 21 CSN Philly

Juqua Parker has an extra motivator this season: an old familiar face.  The Eagles’ defensive end has spent the last six years in Philadelphia, but for the first four years of his career, he was a Tennessee Titan.  When the Eagles hired Jim Washburn, his former position coach with the Titans, Parker was pretty happy.  “I’m very excited,” Parker said. “He used to be an old coach of mine for four years in Tennessee before I came here so I’m really looking forward to playing for him again.”
