ESPN’s John Clayton believes the Arizona Cardinals are the leaders of the pack in the Kevin Kolb sweepstakes once free agency begins, giving 2-1 odds that he will land in the desert.
However, Clayton has not ruled out the Seattle Seahawks potentially going after the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, although he gives Pete Carroll’s crew longer odds at 10-1.
“The Seahawks will get in the Kolb mix, but they could get close to the same production if they bring back Matt Hasselbeck, then make a move on a new, young, franchise quarterback next year.”
