VIDEO: Calais Campbell Reacts To The Kevin Kolb Trade

Any major trade is bound to be conflicting, especially one that jettisons a player as well liked as Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Thus, as the flood of player reactions to Thursday's Kevin Kolb trade continues to dribble out, the general consensus seems to be one of resigned acceptance. As Jay Feely so eloquently put it, "You can't win in the NFL today without a very good QB at a minimum."

Early Friday morning the Cardinals' 24-year-old defensive end, Calais Campbell, joined into the conversation, sharing his thoughts on last season with ESPN, while agreeing with many of his fellow teammates' sentiments regarding their new leader.

[Kolb's] a great talent. He's a smart guy. Puts the ball right on the money; very accurate. He's a natural leader. I think he's going to bring a lot of offense to us, put a lot of points on the board. And I think our defense will feed off of that. We're one of those defenses that, if we're motivated the right way, we can play and be great.
