Browns with Interest in Cardinals QB Kolb?

The Browns reportedly could have interest in quarterback Kevin Kolb should he become available this offseason, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Kolb, who was originally drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles as their quarterback of the future before Mike Vick re-emerged as one of the premier players in the league, originally was scouted by current Browns head coach Pat Shurmer and general manager Tom Heckert.

Heckert and Shurmer reportedly handpicked Kolb for the Eagles because of his ability to run the West Coast offense, the same style that the Browns currently employ.

The 27-year-old is currently under contract with the Cardinals, however an injury filled year that allowed him to post just an 81.1 quarterback rating in nine games last season has left some to speculate that the club may attempt to move Kolb in order to cut their losses. In five NFL seasons Kolb has posted a 76.1 quarterback rating with 20 touchdowns and 22 interceptions.

    Maybe I am out of line here, but is this really an improvement over Sen Wallace? With Robert Griffin III declaring, my guess is someone will trade with either the Vikes or Rams to get him. If he falls to No. 4, then you gotta consider taking him and look for a WR (if FA has not provided one)with the next pick. FA will have a lot to do with what the Browns ultimately do on draft day. One thing I do believe: whoever we pick in the first 2 rounds (possibly 3 rounds), they will be on the field come Fall. Add 2 FAs, and we have a totally revamped team from 3 years ago. Much younger and far more talented. This year makes the room for excuses for failing to perform on the field far smaller for this front office.

    I’ve watched every game Kolb started when he was and Eagle and wasn’t impressed. I was less impressed with him in Arizona. I still think we should give Colt some weapons like Blackmon and he might be able to produce. If blackman is available at 4 then we have to jump on him.

  3. Yea, Just what we need. If your going to go after Kevin Kolb just stick with Colt Mccoy. Please draft RG III.

    There are far greater needs on this team than QB, particularly when you consider that McCoy hasn’t had even one full year running this offense, and with a scarcity of offensive talent at that. All of those people ready to call it a day on McCoy after essentially a season and a half, do me a favor: Go look at the stats for Drew Brees, Joe Montana, John Elway and Troy Aikman in their second years. You’ll see that their numbers were similar to McCoy’s. I’m not saying McCoy is or will ever be in their class, but I am saying we can’t know yet how good he may be.Next year we will be able to make an informed decision on how good McCoy is and can be. Until then, we have to build the team’s core before we take a wild guess on whether RG3 might be great. Justin Blackmon if he’s there at 4, or trade down with Wash or Miami picking up a pick or two and take the best player available at 6 or 9, IMHO.

      well said brother, i hope the front office thinks like you. by the way, you obviously aren’t working for that worthless rag of a newspaper, the PD, you make sense.

    IF, key word IF, Kolb is great you go and sign him.

    A move on RG3 at the two slot in round one has a heavy cost. It would destroy two maybe three drafts. Are the BROWNS ready to mortgage their long-term future for the franchise QB who may prove to have feet of clay? I say, “nay!’ No one player is worth that cost. Let St. LOUIS have him. And since they would pick the “QB of the future’ we pick JUSTIN BLACKMON and see if McCOY’s the real deal or not.
