NFL Trade Rumors: Kevin Kolb Sweepstakes Still Includes Seattle Seahawks

The Kevin Kolb sweepstakes is off and running, and the Seattle Seahawks are reportedly involved. During the NFL lockout, the Arizona Cardinals emerged as the front-runner to land Kolb, with some going so far as to call it a done deal. On Tuesday morning, teams were given the green light to begin negotiating contracts and making trades, and Kolb could be one of the first quarterback dominoes to fall.

Over at National Football Post, the Seahawks are mentioned as a possible landing spot for Kolb in what appears to be an NFC West battle for his services.

Per Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, a league source informed him not to sleep on a Seattle organization that reportedly offered up a first-round pick for Kolb last offseason.

As of 10:00am Tuesday morning, the Eagles were free to trade Kolb, but have yet to pull the trigger after a hectic morning of signing undrafted free agents.

The Seahawks have options, but little in the way of clarity at the quarterback spot. Matt Hasselbeck is still in play, though the Tennessee Titans appear to be the front-runner to land his services. Carson Palmer still wants a trade, though the Cincinnati Bengals told reporters he has retired. As is the case with all the Seahawks quarterback options in the market, there's many unanswered questions.
