Report: Seahawks Want Kevin Kolb, Not McNabb

Written By Bob Cunningham On Wednesday, March 10, 2010

Kolb could be a good fit with Pete Carrol in Seattle.

Earlier today it was reported that the Seattle Seahawks want either Donovan McNabb or Kevin Kolb as their starting quarterback in 2010; But apparently the Seahawks are only eying one of the aforementioned quarterbacks.

Kevin Kolb.

According to (through a source in Seattle), the Seahawks aren't all that interested in McNabb because it would leave the team "in the same position they're in with veteran Matt Hasselbeck."

Hasselbeck turns 35 next season while McNabb will be 34. Kolb will be a still-ripening 26.

Seattle coach Pete Carrol is clearly looking to rebuild and must not either feel Sam Bradford or Jimmy Clausen will be on the board with the sixth overall pick, or that neither is worth such a high pick. Kolb at least has some playing experience and some NFL tape to go off of, rather than only college numbers for Clausen and Bradford.

It will take a lot for Carrol to get the Birds to part ways with Kolb, however. It will probably have to be in the area of a first-round pick or a couple second-round picks to go along with a late-round pick as well.

This report would corroborate the report that the Eagles are not listening to offers for McNabb, as well as Reid's stance that McNabb will be the quarterback in 2010.

I've gone on record as saying I believe the Eagles should take a deal for Kolb and move forward with McNabb and that's not changing now. If the Seahawks are willing to part with a couple picks, the Birds should take them and offer McNabb an extension.
