Report: Fitzgerald And Kolb Get In Private Workout Together

There was a previous report that Arizona Cardinals Pro Bowl receiver Larry Fitzgerald had made a request to the Cardinals front office for them to acquire the services of Eagles backup quarterback Kevin Kolb. Now we’ve got a report that goes even further.

Now FoxsportsArizona.com reports that Fitzgerald and Kolb scheduled and executed a private workout together.

“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.”

This trade continues to look more and more like a done deal. Kolb talked last week like he was no longer a Philadelphia Eagles said that he’s been imagining himself as already being Arizona Cardinal. ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio has reported that Kolb is already looking for a place to live in Arizona.

Who knows Kolb could wind up being a neighbor of Donovan McNabb’s, since McNabb lives in Arizona.

I could see Seattle offering OLB Aaron Curry and a 2nd Round PIck for Kolb
Curry was the 3rd/4th Overall pick in the NFL Draft 3 years ago but has never really lived up to his potential, but really came on and played well the last 1/2 of last Season and in the PLayoffs.. He’s 6-2 255lbs and a sound tackler and good cover LB and a change of Scenery would probably do him well..

I want no players unless its a stud starting player. There are 500 FA and many more players to become available through FA. Im not trading Kolb for a player I can get through FA for free. Thats ridiculous. Give me a # 1. Jake Locker, Blaine Gabbert, and Christian friggin Ponder are worth #1 picks but Kolb isnt? “Hey Kevin we want you to be our starting QB for the next 8 years in Arizona. We are signing you to a long term contract. Oh by the way we dont think your that good so your only worth a #2 pick”. How does that work?

Because he’s not as established enough to draw a #1 pick. Striaght up for DRC is fair. Dunno what else you would get. DRC could lead the NFC in picks in the next few seasons.

No….you make it sound gay.wtf….someone says private work-out and you go homophob on em.Stop that dude.They’re playing pitch and catch and working on there game. Think football….not brokeback.

This article is stale news. Those two have been talking for months, but it was reported yesterday that Kolb-Fitz never got together for workout. Kolb was in Texas at time they were supposed to have met. Regardless, this news isn’t worth commenting on.

Obviously Arizona feels Kolb is their franchise QB. No matter how Eagle fans feel. To trade a franchsise QB straight up for a slightly above avg CB is ridiculous. Its comical. Unless his name is Revis or Asomugha the value isnt even close. It aint happening. They will give more.

Realtalk..the problem there is..”you think he’ll get better”….Who gives a damn what someone can be?

Right now DRC is not a better football player than Asmo…How could you want a lesser talent for what he could be? He very well could get worse?

Let’s just deal with what we know…Asmo is better….better players more wins…Do that register?

Lets see the Raiders gave up a total of 200yards passing per game in 2010…that does not say alot for the other CB’s on the Raiders…I dont know why people dont throw toward Asom more…its not like he’s a INT threat…over his 8 year career he has 11INT’s, really? I mean come on, teams just had better cornerbacks to pick on when they played against the Raiders…

Anyone who knows corner play and watches that dude operate would tell you your a bozo for making that statement,like me.Dude kicks the sh!t outta recievers.Youtube him and you will post an apology to me for talking that dumbness.

His press technique is top-notch,he’s built like a safety,he hits like one,he gave up 7 catches last year,and he has no help all game every game.Look up his #’s against Bowe,Jackson,Marshal(in Denver).

DRC is a great corner.

Asmo may be a first ballot HOFer…give me a break the Raiders have been one fo the worst teams in the NFL throughout his NFL career….there are tons of cats that run around here saying McNabb wont be a hall of famer because he didnt win the big one…what the hell has the Raiders won? not a damn thing! For a team to rank 23rd in pass defense and have the best “corner back” in Asom on their team is pitiful! If I were an offensive coordinator and teams are getting 200 yards a game throwing at Huff, Johnson, Ware and McFadden I would do the same too….Asom is a solid cover corner, no doubt but some of you act like if we dont get him its the end of the world…I’m just trying to bring some reality to the room…my opinion we dont need him!

July 22, 2011 11:41 am

Because his recievers arent open. Are you purposly talking like you have no clue about pass defense? 200 yards a game is great for a defense.Seems like your tryna stir the pot.he shut down the best receiver in the game A.J last year with a sprained ankle.And he did the same too Fitz.

Stop holding your breath so long when you go swimming and switch to Yingys instead of Jack.

July 22, 2011 11:47 am

If we dont get em we’ll have a solid corner either way. He puts our d on the Packs level. Complete shutdown.

So you think 200 yards a game passing is alot?Wise up.

Go youtube him….get back too me with your apology.

Why wouldnt you deduce that if a guy isnt getting picks its because he’s not being challenged brainiac.Did you ever play corner?

OVER A 16 GAME SEASON HE WAS THROWN AT 13 TIMES.THATS 13 TIMES…..So if a team throws average 30 times a game thats 480 pass attempts and they only threw his way 13 of them.Stop spewing your mess and scout the dude. Compare him too DRC. You will request my foregiveness…i will grant it.

OK Songs and Eroc, you know what for most part I’ve pretty much always agreed with you cats – but now I see if someone doesn’t agree with you guys about a player, then that makes him a drug addict or an alcoholic? where you gotta throw around insults or put downs….

How bout this both of you are dumb asses! and I’m not the one to insult, I’d smack both of your asses around like you were my b*t**s and owed me money!!! REAL TALK!

Eagles don’t need Asom, DRC will fit in just fine!

You want Asom so bad that you are ready to give all of the budget to signing him…forget about addressing a DL position, or addressing OL position or LB position, no lets just spend most of the cap on Asom…..dumb asses!

Now you are reaching, Asom better than Asante…now you are talking out of your ass! DRC better than Asom, yea I may have been reaching but, Asom better than Asante “hands down” as you say….totally disagree…

Your the one insisting something is false when everyone in football who has a brain would tell you your wrong. I love Sante but he is not a better corner then NA.

Some things are fact based on analysis and stats.Somethings can be opinionated. But there isnt one scout out there that would say at this point in there careers Asmo is a better player. Bottomline.

And its Erock..not Eroc.

if there is a reasonable choice? hell yeah I rather have Nambi. But at 18-20 mill? lol. I dont think so..

that price is ridiculous and I dont blame the Eagles if they go the DRC route instead…

if they can land Aso without breaking their pockets, then lets do it. I want fat albert too (yes Ive all the reports about DC trying to keep him from us).. I want another Linebacker, and I even want Justice replaced out there (dude is not a baller and he scares me)

I want the best corner the league has to offer, but not at the expense of everything else

but I wanted to address you about your boy Asom…you wanted me to do some research…here it goes:

Asom was thrown at 33 times last season LOL – but Erock knows best! 13 I even through Revis into the discussion

Oakland Raiders star cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha posted the following statistics:
13-33, 205 yards, 0 TD, 0 INT, 60.8 passer rating

And New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis allowed:
19-56, 340 yards, 4 TD, 0 INT, 79.5 passer rating

Asante Samuel Eagles Corner back
19-41 – 141 yards 2TD 7 INT 31.7 passer rating…

Realtalk…Do you trust the Eagles will address all those areas you mentioned if they got DRC for less?

What organization have you been watching?

They’ll get DRC and say now they’re ready…and shift the conversation to resigning our guys. It’s perpetual…they do the same thing over and over.

The reason I want Asmo because #1 he’s heads and shoulders above every corner available and #2 It’s not like the Eagles will use the money saved to get top talent in other areas of need.

That’s us wishful thinking.

If they get DRC and use the money for the positions you say….and get good talent there..then O.K.

But if they get him and still refuse to pay what it takes to improve other areas….Then what?

At least with Asmo we get something exceptional even if they decide to spend modest in other areas.

I think this Kolb for DRC been hyped so much…we have lost focuse on what’s needed.

They’ll sell this DRC as the next Neon Deon and we’ll be pissed while he’s getting torched during the season after we let Asmo go elsewhere.

Remember we were crying for Peppers last year?

People came with the same spin…Why sign Peppers to all that money when we can use the money to sign other areas of need like the offensive line..remember those conversations?

Remember that talk?

Peppers singlehandedly gave us hell and help Chicago win a game that changed our seeding for the playoffs.

What help did we get with the money saved?

Was our offensive line better?

On top of that…last season was a uncapped season….What’s with you guys looking to save Lurie and Banner nickles and be willing to concede to 2nd or 3rd tier for a position of need?

Only in Philadelphia where the fans reflect the losing ways of an organization by excusing them and not holding them to fire in key moments like this. Players like Peppers and Asmo don’t grow on trees…So when your best defensive line wears down at the end of every season and a better one comes available…you get him to help get you over the top..when your glaring weakness is right corner and the best corner available is there…you get him to help your team get over the top.

But we concede.

Average is value…that’s good for a team that’s use to winning absolutely nothing.

Sorry,he gave up 13 passes.lol.WTF is the difference

You just proved my point son.0 TD CATCHES…..60%rating…..Sante got burnt plenty of times last year causes he’s not a complete corner. I love em and think hes a HOFer..but not better then NA.

We are basically getting DRC for free so there is no real choice. What you have to look at when you talk about Revis and Nnamdi and even Asante (minus the occ. jumping the route and betting burned for a td) is not how many int. they have, but the fact that they take away half the field and shut down the other teams best rec. Look at what these guys do to A. Johnson, Moss, Owens, and any other top rec. That being said, I would Take DRC and spend the money on other needs. That I believe would have a bigger impact on our team then throwing half our cap space at Nnamdi. But to be honest I’m just your average idoit.

I would rather have CB’s C Rogers or Ike Taylor than DRC.. The Eagles always used to have “Physical CB’s” when they had their good defenses, but they have bcome soft in the Secondary since Dawkins’ departure.. HAving a CB Tandem of Samuel and DRC would invite as an offense to run the ball all game long around the smallish DE’s the Eagles have a pound out 200 yards of Rushing in a ball-control type of offense.. Get me some physical CB’s who can tackle,and guard in the Red-Zone which is the Eagles biggest problem area..

July 22, 2011 1:52 pm

My take on Samuel was that he was a very good season in 2010 until his knee gave him problems the last 4-5 weeks of the Season.. Once this happened, he was able to be as agreesive for he was playing way to off and soft since he lost his explosion.. the first 3/4 of the Season I think Samuel was having his all-around best Season as an Eagle.. but you have to stay healthy and his knee problems are not going away (Similar to Westbrook) where they swell and have to be drained and then he can’t preactce much and on an on .. Samuel probably has 2 more good years but once he loses that initial step and burst, then he becomes an average player very quickly…

I like what you say brother, truely I do. You make a good point which I hope the Eagles will be keen to observe.

I want NA very much, but I don’t want the bank broken for him. You might can buy a mercedes, but can you afford to keep it running, and what do you give up? Cable, internet, friday dinner with the wife at the Outback? Noop, if DRC can get you to work, won’t kill you in gas, looks good when you sporting the wife on date night then you buy the Cromartie and some other toys and have fun at the Superbowl.

Let us learn a lesson from the decimated Packers, quality in depth! I want as many very good players as we can afford mixed in with some key studes and then you know the rest………… NA for a good money, not the money.

Another thing, I think I’m the one that started this rumor about the eagles trading for drc months ago on this site n it has legs n ran… we may very well get him in a deal but I don’t think he’s the best available. I still feel they should look to sign nnamdi… then j joseph then other…

Paul your overrated. How dare you say nnamdi is overrated? That makes no sense. He’s been a premier cb in this league for yrs. They don’t even try his side gimme a break, that comment is a sign of sm1 running out of things to say bc there on this site too much…

Welcome back JH,
Maybe the word “overrated” for Asmo is a bit strong, put it this way, I don’t think he is worth the Salary that he will command and I would rather the Eagles get 3-4 Players to upgrade this entire Eagles Defense instead of signing and spending a large chunch of Cap $$ for Asmo.. Give me a good CB,LB,DE & DT instead of 1 great CB and the team will be serious Super Bowl Contendors.. Just Amso alone does not fix the Front 7 which is average at best…

Any who folks there are two shut down corners in this league.. Darrelle Revis and Nmandi Asomugha.

With Nmandi teams will have to change their whole game plan with us. You think Arron Rodgers see’s DRC and say “no way im throwing over there?” please.. signing Asomugha would change the way teams approach us every game.

Think of this… One guy can cause fear to an offense more than 3 average players in this case.. Guys like Clay Matthews and Revis and Freeney. By signing Nmandi this D would have an identity that teams would FEAR.

Your a QB and you see Asante to the right you see Nmandi to the left what do you do? that combo is unlike anything we would ever see in the NFL.
