Report: Browns Called Eagles About Kolb

The same night the Philadelphia Eagles named Michael Vick the starter, their former general manager called about the availability of Kevin Kolb in a trade.

WIP's Anthony Gargano, via Mike Florio of, reports that Cleveland Browns general manager Tom Heckert contacted the Eagles about trading for Kolb last night, but was informed that Kolb was not available.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports that the WIP report is untrue.

Cleveland's interest in Kolb dates back to February. When Kolb verbally expressed his desire to compete for a starting job in January, I felt that Cleveland would be a good place for him to receive that opportunity.

A lot has changed in the last 8 months, though, including the Eagles sending Donovan McNabb to the Washington Redskins and the signing Kolb to a one-year, $12 million contract extension.

Considering it only took six quarters for Vick to be handed the starting job, Reid's pendulum could swing back towards Kolb just as quickly.
