NFL Trade Rumors: Kevin Kolb To Cardinals A 'Slam Dunk'

The term "slam dunk" got a bad rap a few years ago when it was used to describe the case for invading Iraq and finding weapons of mass destruction. It was used again recently in a totally different context by ESPN's Sal Paolantonio who told SI's Peter King that Kevin Kolb being traded to the Arizona Cardinals was "slam dunk".

For Cardinals fans hoping to land the Philadelphia Eagles back up quarterback, you might want to hope the "slam dunk" is a bit more like this than like this. To make this report even a bit more unpalatable (or confusing) is this part that has the Cardinals giving up Patrick Peterson.

There was actually some chatter that a Kolb-Cards deal was already done, with the principle parts being Kolb for Patrick Peterson (aka "2011 first-rounder") and a 2012 second-rounder.

 It's hard to imagine Cardinals fans getting board with that. Kolb has a total of 19 games on his resume. He's completed 60.8 percent of his passes for 2, 082 yards with 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
