The Arizona Cardinals have a new starting quarterback. After much speculation the Cardinals officially finalized a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles to bring Kevin Kolb to Arizona.
In exchange for Kolb the Cardinals shipped cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a 2nd round pick to Philadelphia. The 27-year-old former 2nd round pick out of Houston is viewed as the new franchise quarterback as the Cardinals inked him to a new 5 year $63.5 million contract ($21.5 million guaranteed).
The Eagles on the other hand fill a need acquiring Rodgers-Cromartie who will fit right in as a starter in the defensive backfield.
