The deal is done. Kevin Kolb will sign a five-year extension with the Cardinals for more than $63 million with over $20 million guaranteed. The Eagles get Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a 2nd round pick.
This is not unexpected, but with the QB market drying up, Larry Fitzgerald and his owners have to be breathing a sigh of relief. If Kolb is even mediocre, Fitzy should be a threat to break back into the top 5. The Cardinals invested a lot of money in their new, relatively unproven QB. As such, Kolb is a mid-range QB2 in fantasy drafts. With Steve Breaston's departure, Andre Roberts is a real threat to start at WR2 and is a sleeper in PPR formats.
